Welcome to Stony Acres! Situated on a beautiful 9 acre lot is this early 1800 colonial along with a separate guest house and a huge barn. This is truly a special property that needs to be seen. Boasting over 1800 square feet, this home was just recently gutted to be totally renovated. Renovation plans are available. This home is unique and can be totally customized. On this lot is a separate guest house with two bedrooms that is totally move in condition. This would be an ideal spot to stay while the main house is being renovated. The barn can be utilized for horses if desired, car enthusiasts, contractors etc.. The grounds are to die for, stone walls accent the entrance and provide ample space for farming. The huge fireplace in the walk-out basement is a must see. The potential here is huge.

    I looked around for some pre-gut photos and found these:

      I’m really confuzzled right now. How could that beautiful interior of the pre-gut photos have morphed into the listing photos we see today?????? A crime.

        It appears that much of what was stripped out was from earlier renovations. The walls removed look like sheetrock, so the damage to early building fabric is limited.
        A clean slate restoration could be the best thing for a very old place like this. The beautiful site is worth most of the asking price, and the 2nd house gives you a place to live while work is proceeding. This is one of the nicest semi-rural areas of New Jersey, and unless there’s some other big issue, this shouldn’t last long!

    After looking at the pre-gut photos I think I’m going to be sick…or cry…or both.

      I would have been happy living in the place pre-gut. It looked beautiful even though there was a 60’s style kitchen. It was neat and clean.

    For much of the 19th Century this was the farm of Harmon H. Creamer (1818-1895), who raised his 6 children with wife Armida here. It’s quite possible the farm went back much further with the family since Harmon’s great grandfather, German immigrant Mattheus Krämer, was in town before 1740.

    1988 Fake Greek Revival!

    WHY would anyone take out so much of the good stuff? Thankful they left at least a few mantels & the floorboards. The pre-gut asking price was $740K with 18 acres — I assume the difference and more was made up by the 9 sold acres. Wish they hadn’t felt it necessary to spend time & money tearing the place apart so thoroughly.

    Thank you for the pre-gut photos. Makes the current photos not so scary.

    Doesn’t look like there was ever enough left of the original house here to attempt a true restoration on a house this age, before or after the initial offering was gutted and 9 acres split off. (The uncovered vestiges of the rough hewn beams and the fireplaces make my mouth water).
    Given that, I don’t see the sense in gutting the house, as it stood, to that extent, for any reason, either functionally,aesthetically or economically. But it was, and there she sits. Can you make a nice size million dollar house from a very pretty $450K shell here for $250K on 9 acres? If so it might be worth picking up, but probably not by me.
    OHD has been very helpful in helping me to understand some of the ins and outs of the economics involved in old house restoration. I hope frank discussion is allowed on that account. As a carpenter and restorer, I tend to want to honor the original craftsmen and artisans. Thanks for your hard work Kelly.
