An ideal balance of antique charm and modern amenities are found in Califon House, a circa 1770 Colonial sited on over 4.9 acres in Washington Township. Scenic grounds are enhanced by flowering trees, fragrant perennials, privacy fencing along the front and preserved land edging the back border. Upgrades and additions through the years have transformed the original two-room cottage into a bright, sunny four bedroom, two full bath home measuring over 1,900 square feet. Authentic 18th century features include wide plank wood floors, hand-hewn beams and period woodwork.
The original part of the home is now an eat-in kitchen with a stone fireplace and a dining room, while an addition in 1820 created a large living room featuring an antique entrance door and front porch. Upstairs are each of the four bedrooms, all with closet space. A hall bath has a claw foot tub and double sink vanities.
Enjoy tranquil views from the porches, deck, private slate patio with wood-burning fireplace tucked into the woodlands and small stone cottage. An expansive storage barn can be used for a future garage or for farm animals.
Modern upgrades such as solar panels, central air conditioning and Pella windows are seamlessly integrated into the authentic Colonial architecture which displays thoughtful and period-sensitive renovations throughout.
