** ALL SHOWINGS MUST HAVE A REALTOR PRESENT. DO NOT CONTACT THE OWNER DIRECTLY ** Waterfront on Hearns Pond with sunning deck/dock in this historical well kept original home that was part of the Hearn and Rawlins Mill (1885) boasting the character of living a well to do life in a turn of the century home. If living in an era of days long gone is appealing to you, then this is the home for you. Currently known to many as the “Tea Room” where promoting and/or educating the High Noon Tea and etiquette takes place, this home features many nooks and crannies of homes of the past, such as, a canning room, root cellar, attic cedar closet, 4 panel doors with antique knobs, several built-ins, hardwood floors, wainscoting walls, and spandrel to name a few. Enter onto the first of two screened porches which faces east and proceed to the entrance where, on the main level, the family room, dining room, kitchen with a separate staircase and a separate canning room which would be used as a butler’s pantry, the 4th guest room with a stunning embossed ceiling wallpaper and chandelier, laundry room, sunroom/den, and half bath. The half bath (9’x10’) is large enough to add a walk-in shower or even a clawfoot tub. Upstairs is the primary bedroom with a separate room that could easily be a nursery or turned into an extra large built-in or walk-in closet with a sitting area, truly, the imagination can go to the max with this space. The two other guest bedrooms are quite large and one could actually be used for an office or flex room with lots of windows to light this space. There are two fireplaces and three chimneys, neither have been used in many years and sold ‘as is’. The antique inserts can be negotiated. Not only is there plenty of space inside (2,800+ sqft) but the outside provides .74 acres with a pool and pool equipment storage, yard/tool shed, horseshoe pit, partially fenced yard but the addition in 2021 of a 24’x32’x8’ pole building (with a separate electric panel and 24’x20’x10’ pavilion to host many family reunions makes this a sanctuary that beckons the nature enthusiast or artist. The dock is grandfathered-in as part of the property. In Documents, please find the Letter of Map Amendment Determination (REMOVAL) showing the home is removed from the flood zone (part of the land by the water is in a flood zone) so one does not need flood insurance; however, listing agent has estimate of flood insurance should you want that protection. Here’s your chance to enjoy the evenings on the pond watching the sun set and breath in the serenity of Sussex County.
