Delightful Antique Farmhouse Complex in Washington Township
The Oldwick Office presents an enchanting residential compound located along a quiet country road in Morris County’s Washington Township. Characterized by the charm of a bygone era, thoughtful additions and modern updates, the centerpiece of this property is an antique farmhouse dating to the 1790s. An impressive nine-room layout offers four bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths. Sited on 5.79± acres, the scenic land is also a certified backyard wildlife habitat. Open, level acreage includes a two-story barn/garage, an antique stone smokehouse dating to the late 1700s and a former horse stable currently housing multiple artist’s studios.
The unique artist studio outbuilding presents numerous options for the next owners since it contains a full bath and its own septic system. This heated and air conditioned space could be used as an extended living or entertaining area, guest house, a home-based enterprise, yoga studio, workshop or storage for a classic car collection. The future owners may want to utilize the building for its original purpose as a horse stable. Other suggested uses for this expansive outbuilding include a dog kennel, chicken coop or shelter for a variety of other animals.
Highlights of the main home’s gracious interior include original wide plank wood floors, high ceilings inset with exposed antique beams, German Valley-style stone fireplaces edged in traditional mantels, built-ins, recessed lighting, a gourmet kitchen and gracious master suite.
