About This 1870 Second Empire For Sale In Frenchtown New Jersey

Welcome home to one of Frenchtown’s most iconic historic properties. Surrounded by lush perennial gardens and mature trees, this exquisite circa 1870 Victorian home was originally built and owned by the Rittenhouse Family in Philadelphia as a summer retreat.

Step onto the grand wraparound front porch with mahogany flooring and original gingerbread detailing and shutters. This magnificent property offers three full levels with five large bedrooms, each with its own private sitting room and gorgeous, completely renovated full bath with radiant tile flooring. Completely updated and restored in 2015-2016, the current owners were sure to maintain the exquisite original details throughout, including original pine floors, windows, doors, trimwork and the elegant 3 story stairway with original railings.

The spacious main level is warm and inviting with a welcoming foyer, sunny breakfast/sitting room, large dining room and gourmet kitchen. The kitchen is a true chefs delight with modern updates while still maintaining the original character of the home. Features include soapstone counters, a commercial 3 bay sink, center island with a vegetable washing sink, stainless steel dishwasher, top of the line 6-burner Miele stove/double oven with hood system, reclaimed barn board floors and custom cabinets.

A spiral staircase in the kitchen leads up to the old servants quarters which can be used as a bedroom, den, or study. Relax outside on the covered back porch overlooking the fenced yard with abundant plantings and old growth trees, two-story barn and tool shed. The sale of this property also includes two additional lots behind the main house with a fully permitted sewer hookup and access to water, gas and electric.

Additional features include new plumbing throughout and a new seven-zone, efficient gas heating system. Located just minutes from the wonderful shops, restaurants and galleries of historic downtown Frenchtown, this beautifully maintained property has endless possibilities.

  1. Love the original gingerbread scrolling on the porch!! The renovations of the bathrooms and kitchen are very tastefully in keeping with the style of the era and complement the original structure very well. Adore the pine plank flooring!! The pine planking gives the home a very comfortable, relaxed feeling of “down home” vitality and spirit!! Leaves you with a Warm Happy Glow!!

  2. This house has potential but a lot of work needs done to reach that potential. As is, the outside looks more like a ‘Halloween House’ rather than a Victorian mansion. With peeling plaster on ceilings and ground work outside it could be labeled a ‘fixer upper’. It is way over priced with that in mind and less than a half acre of land. It might get closer to the $1.5 million asking price if the 2 additional lots behind were already a part of the price.

  3. Considering what the outside looked like, which I like, I was expecting something much more eccentric on the inside.

Let me know what you think about this old house!
