    Dry interesting and attractive color scheme on the exterior. I’ve never seen these colors used on an old Colonial but it works. I wonder if there was any historical basis for this selection?

    What’s going on in that bedroom with the black bed? Ceiling seems very, very low. Is this really the attic?

      The ceiling is low in that room, as it is in many old houses. It’s on the second floor. A prior owner raised the floor a bit before carpeting it. The ceiling can be raised.

    Beautiful house, price seems low for the area! I live in a neighboring town and home prices (and property taxes) around these parts are extremely high. Northern NJ is a beautiful area full of historic homes.

    The location is Ralston, a small hamlet that developed around the colonial-era mill of John Logan at the corner just north, acquired in 1786 by John Ralston and later by the Samuel Leddell mentioned. The grist mill provided flour for Washington’s troops camped at Jockey Hollow during the Revolution. This home is part of that history, which resonates across the region. Tempe Wick could have slept here had she needed to.

    I was stunned by the exterior color choice, by how absolutely well done and flattering it was. Great choice! Especially love the yellow door. Thanks for sharing it.

    I am so glad the ceiling beams supporting the second floor were retained. They appear to be hand-hewn, speaking of Colonial times when this house was built, before there was a United States. What a pleasure it must have been to have lived in this lovely home. Wish I could!

    I just keep coming back to this post. I just can’t get the yellow door out of my mind. I absolutely love it. This home is beautiful 🙂
