    I could be very content in this house, especially in the winter; doing some experimental cooking with a glass of wine and a fire blazing…

    So pretty, both inside and out!

  3. This house should be cloned. What a wonderful house and yes, that kitchen is especially charming. There’s nothing quite like a great fireplace in a kitchen.

    A rare gem to add to the Greatest Hits at Old House Dreams. This place is really lovely. The realtor has done a very nice job of presenting it.

    Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear….

    I love the exposed beams and the angled roof bedrooms.

    A pretty house and the countryside is lovely in that part of New Jersey. At the very least, the stone fireplace is quite old and likely survives from the colonial era. I don’t see any history online but it’s easy to speculate on this one. An old map shows this as the Prall farm next to the stream on Indian Path Road in 1873. Local history says Pieter Praal (1700-1761) was an early settler here, a 4th generation Dutchman from Staten Island. He bought a large tract northeast of Ringoes, purchased from the natives a few years before, and his 1726 deed specifically mentions the Indian Path that existed long before. It seems fairly certain that Pieter or one of his kin built this home at an early date. What’s surprising is that the landscape, just an hour from Manhattan, hasn’t changed very much at all!
