About 62 Opossum Road

A long driveway framed by evergreens introduces this captivating expanded Colonial with origins tracing back to 1764. Timeless appeal is apparent the moment you pull onto the (105 acre) grounds. The first brick home in Somerset County, built by Cornelius Ten Broeck and lovingly restored by its last two owners, the original four-over-four structure features wood beams and wide board floors, party sized dining and living rooms, his and her studies and four upstairs bedrooms. Front and back Dutch doors connect an impressive entrance hall with the circular driveway and long patio for ease of entertaining. The East Wing was renovated in the 1970's with a sizeable kitchen and true breakfast room opening to the outside. A bedroom and bath are on the second floor and ideal for in-laws or help. The West Wing includes a glorious master bedroom suite with walk-in dressing closet above a sun-filled family room. The pool is easily accessed from here. Grounds include a carriage house garage, 3 pole barns, 4 outbuildings and several paddocks. Additional land parcels: 97.392 farm acres,a second house with outbuildings, building envelopes for 2 additional houses, and a 2 acre lot at the corner of Route 206 and Opossum. (Total acres approximately 203.6). Existing farming lease continues through 2018.
