    What a wonderful hodge-podge of a house! I wouldn’t change much beyond the carpet!

    Noblesville, IN

    This one just got better and better and better as the pix went along. I think it’s priceless – as is; and would personally change very, very little. What a marvelously preserved house; with each change and modification in very good taste, and so well cared for. The brick element of the kitchen is OMG FAB! The enameled steel cabinetry is not top of the line, but I wouldn’t touch it. The back porch/ patio/ room is one of the most envious spaces I’ve ever seen. That window! That bankette! Those flags! And a fireplace in a pear tree. W O W. So much more than the bracketed Neo-classical farm house the facade advertises. The late Victorian modified DR is soo, so, so special. I just love it. Splendid

    This house is owned by someone I know. His Mother was a famous fashion model in the 1950’s. The house was a grand place for entertaining =-and has so much New Jersey history. A friend was considering buying it- we are all hoping the right person gets it.

    The dubious claims of great antiquity notwithstanding, this is an interesting historic artifact with many layers!

    Blurb from the local Walking Tour:
    The Cutter House
    The Cutters were among the first European families to settle in Woodbridge Township and, through their vast land holdings, saw mills and later investments in clay mines and factories, they became one of the most respected. Sometime between 1690 and 1710 the Cutter farmhouse was built on the trail that would become Main Street. It is not certain whether parts of the original structure were included when the home was remodeled and enlarged in the 1840s. A stone barn on the property was later converted for residential use and during the 1840s renovations a second story was added for servant use. Today 893 Main Street is called “The Old Stone Cottage.” The farm covered many acres between Ford and Mary Avenues and south to Woodland or Linden Streets. Over the years parcels of the property surrounding the house were sold and acreage subdivided. Later owners, however, continued the farming tradition and older Fords residents still remember buying eggs from the Alberts as late as the 1950s. Other owners included the Van Voorhees, Anderson and Solowinski families. Today the Cutter House, at 891 Main Street, remains a private residence.

    What an awesome 1950s kitchen. I’d love to have a broiler like that.

    As a NJ resident,I’m shocked the taxes on this property are only a bit more than $8,500. I own 2 smaller properties & my taxes are more than half that for each. Would have suspected they’d be much higher.
    Love everything about this beautiful home which is in Fords,NJ.
