CIRCA 1780'S FARMHOUSE COLONIAL ON 8+ AC , POTTERSVILLE SECTION CHESTER TOWNSHIP ANTIQUE FARMHOUSE SET ON 8+ MAGICAL ACRES IN POTTERSVILLE SECTION OF CHESTER TOWNSHIP A captivating 1780s farmhouse integrates authentic period details and modern updates in a most enchanting way. Situated on over eight acres surrounded by woodlands, a stream, two waterfalls, perennial gardens and 250-plus acres of protected parkland, this charming home is located on a quiet country road in the Pottersville section of Chester Township, where Hacklebarney State Park across the street offers over 900 acres of hiking trails and natural beauty. Although it is secluded, this property is also convenient to public transportation, Routes 202, 206 and Interstates 78 and 287 for commuters. Finished in a classic mix of cedar clapboard capped by a split cedar shingle roof, the traditional architecture is enhanced by a bluestone terrace edged by low stone walls, two covered porches, a detached two-car stone garage and a renovated in-ground swimming pool. An inviting floor plan of four bedrooms and four baths features wide plank pumpkin pine floors, knotty pine barn-sided doors with latches, wood beamed ceilings, three wood-burning stone fireplaces, a country kitchen featuring Pennsylvania barn siding trim, a library fitted with built-in bookcases, two master suites, and a recreation room on the finished lower level. While this home retains much of its Early American flavor, it has been graciously updated and added onto through the years. One of the main gathering spaces on the first floor is an oversized great room, where design elements such a wide, walk-in stone fireplace capped by a barn beam mantle, exposed ceiling beams, deep-set windows, pumpkin pine flooring, built-in bookcases and a Dutch door are authentic period details. In the dining room, another wood-burning fireplace creates a warm glow while pumpkin pine floors and exposed ceiling beams lend additional character. Generously-dimensioned and beautifully designed, the library presents built-in bookcases, a deep closet with shelves, a candelabra chandelier set into exposed beam ceilings and pumpkin pine floors. Country charm continues in the welcoming kitchen which features antique wood siding reclaimed from a Pennsylvania barn, wood countertops, exposed ceiling beams and pumpkin pine floors. A picture window frames bucolic views in this delightful eat-in kitchen. Completing the main floor is a full bath. Upstairs, a spacious master bedroom offers wide plank wood flooring, two closets and dormered windows. The master bath contains teak flooring, a double sink pine vanity topped in marble, a soaking tub edged by tile and recessed lighting. The secondary master suite offers a large bedroom anchored by a wood-burning fireplace. Other features in this bedroom include pumpkin pine flooring, three closets and storage under the eaves. The en-suite full bath provides a tiled bathtub, shelving and pumpkin pine floors. Two additional upstairs bedrooms with wood floors share a full hall bath with teak flooring, a tiled bathtub and marble-topped pine vanity. Additional gathering space has been created in a recreation room located on the finished, walk out lower level which also houses the laundry room, storage and utility areas. This level opens onto a covered porch overlooking the front of the property. At the rear of the home, an in-ground cement pool was recently renovated and is enclosed by wood fencing. The detached two-car garage has automatic door openers and storage options. Mechanical workings include multiple zones of oil-fired hot water heating and central air conditioning, private septic and well water. Systems are in place for satellite television and internet. Bordering Bedminster in Somerset County and Tewksbury in Hunterdon County, the quaint village of Pottersville is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It began as a mill town in the 1700s, and local orchards were known for their peach crop in the 1800s. The scenic Black River Falls became a tourist attraction in the late 1800s, so much so that railroad excursion service to Pottersville offered city dwellers a hotel, an amusement park and picnic grounds around the waterfall. This lively park existed until the early 1900s. Today, the tranquil Pottersville section of Chester is comprised of farms and horse properties set amid rolling hills and leafy woodlands. Visitors still flock to the annual antique show in Pottersville, a picturesque part of the state located about an hour from New York City. Chester Township is centrally located in Morris County near a network of local and interstate highways.
