Kingwood Locktown Homestead
Kingwood Township, Hunterdon County New Jersey
A historic gem nestled amongst rural tranquility� as you approach this 1741 colonial with formal cut flagstones and perfectly placed windows, you just know this was a home built in a grand style for a wealthy country gentleman and his family. Fortunately, most of the period details are still intact. There is a working fireplace in every room of the original house; the secondary rooms share a corner chimney back-to-back, with formal carved wood mantelpieces and imported tile. The great room has a large walk-in fireplace and two oversized doors with massive strap hinges. You�ll find chair rails on both floors, as well as formal built-in corner cabinets and wide-plank flooring throughout.

This 154 acre farm contains two separate parcels. The long stone summer kitchen built near the corner of the house with a wall of windows could easily be used as a studio, and a spring house with copula completes the historic flavor of this Revolutionary-era homestead. A charming 2-bedroom guest cottage and 2 car detached garage, as well as two red barns and silo complete the farmstead.

Beautiful, serene and unpreserved, this farm is one of Hunterdon County�s best examples of early settlers. Just over an hour to New York City!
