54 East Curlis Avenue, Pennington, NJ 08534 (Hopewell Township)
On a rarely found large tract of land totaling 1.71 acres right on the edge of Pennington Borough, the John D. Hart House is a significant part of Hopewell’s rich history, tracing its roots back to the early 1800s. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places for its architectural significance, this exquisite 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home is a true find, believed to have been originally built by a nephew of John Hart, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, who lived nearby. With its freshly painted exterior by a historic home professional and newly installed garage doors, it welcomes with the undeniable appeal of a home that has stood the test of time. Once a thriving nursery dotted with specimen trees and meticulously maintained gardens, the home and grounds are tucked well off the street and feel worlds away, yet right down the road are the Toll Gate Grammar School, Pennington’s shops, and conveniences. A spacious covered porch, patio, and fire pit will be a joy throughout the seasons, overlooking a creek and a big, grassy swath of land that’s surrounded by charming white fencing. An old barn, once a pony barn, has been thoughtfully converted into a chicken coop. Stepping inside, the home's rich history is evident in every detail. Pumpkin pine floors and cherry doors are complemented by antique moldings, built-ins, beams, and antique fixtures. The fireplace mantle in the living room is even documented in the Library of Congress!
