About 273 Pennington Rocky Hill Road

Presiding over this lovely parcel of just under 7 acres with mature plantings, an inviting swimming pool in a classic natural setting, and a cozy converted barn, is an expanded farmhouse that dates back to the 18th century. Having been home to some of Hopewell's most prominent residents, the Enoch Drake House, also known as Centerville Farm, is truly a home for the history buff with a keen eye for design! A character-filled dwelling with solid bones and welcome updates including brand new septic, natural gas heat, and an in-law suite addition with new bath, it is at the ready for a few additional straight forward improvements that would bring it right up to 21st century stature while still retaining all the charms of a bygone era. With four fireplaces, original wood floors, and five flexible bedrooms plus a finished attic that is an office or a getaway, there is so much to love here. Take your pick of entertaining rooms from the library and dining room in the original part of the house, to a front-to-back living room that is loaded with natural light. The kitchen looks out onto private gardens and is all set for an easy upgrade/expansion. Upstairs bedrooms are spacious and reached via two sets of stairs, allowing for the possibility of a private master suite, if desired. One of two barns on the property was converted to a two-bedroom cottage with unfinished loft, or potential third bedroom, and has its own legal 3-bedroom septic system. It's rare that something this special comes on the market!
