About This 1879 Second Empire For Sale In Pennington New Jersey
All Aboard! You won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to live in one of the most unique homes in the historical town of Pennington. Imagine the days when a walk down to the station to sit on the benches to catch a glimpse of the luxurious railcars was considered one of the biggest events in town. The original Pennington Railroad Station is the only property in town on the National Registry of Historic Places.
The Station, completed in 1882, is an excellent example of textbook Victorian architecture. Its grand three-story sandstone block structure with a mansard roof and a center pavilion make it a prominent landmark in a town rich with history. The first floor overflows with charm and character. In addition to the 12-foot ceilings, original woodwork, archways, and hardwood floors, you will notice many details of the original station have withstood the test of time.
Continue up to the second floor via either the spiral staircase or traditional stairs. Here you will find additional living space, bedrooms, 1.5 baths, and a second kitchen. On to the third floor, where there is a third full bath with clawfoot tub, two very spacious bedrooms, each with large closets, as well as access to the walkup attic.
The basement, with outside access via Bilco doors, offers loads of storage space with plenty of sturdy shelving. And the outside platform is the perfect spot for train-watching and entertaining! The home is currently lived in and being sold as a single residence, although deeded as two separate units. Overall, the home boasts 3300 square feet of living space evenly divided between the two units.
Individually, #16 has 1 bedroom, 2 full baths, kitchen, living room, and dining room; while #18 has 2 large bedrooms, 1.5 baths, kitchen, living room, a small bedroom or study, and main floor laundry which is currently shared by both units. Each unit includes one secure bay in the two-car detached garage. Numerous possibilities: use as one incredible residence; or live in one half and use the other for in-laws, an au pair, or as an income-generating property; or rent both units. Come explore and fall in love!
