Offering just the right dose of country living without sacrificing convenience -including a short stroll to Hopewell Valley High School and the library, Hedgecroft traces its heritage to pre-revolutionary times. Over its history it has been transformed into a comfortable, distinguished property featuring a turn-key farmhouse, well stewarded by the same family since 1968. Four bedrooms, spacious living areas, nine-foot ceilings, original wavy glass windows and wide plank pumpkin pine flooring, are just some of what you will find here. The home has been beautifully expanded over time with 3 finished levels. This property includes a mortise and tenon timber-framed barn with a cedar shake roof dating back to when novelist John Updike's great grandfather lived here, a smokehouse, carriage house and a tool shop on nearly 27 acres. From the house or on the stone patio enjoy broad views of the pond, stocked with bass, and the gentle green meadow beyond. Deer,fox, mallards, geese, heron, and red-tailed hawk visit Hedgecroft daily. Included at this price is a 6.97 acre back meadow which is an approved building lot accessed from Scotch Road,Block 62.01; Lots 17 and 47. The property is currently farmland assessed and buyer will be responsible for paying any rollback taxes should they elect to discontinue.
