C. 1688 Thomas Foulkes House Lists for $350K in Chesterfield, New Jersey

$350,000 | 1688 |  1,134 Sq. Ft. | 2 Beds | 1 Baths
23 Crosswicks Chesterfield Rd, Chesterfield, NJ 08515

The meticulous restoration of the 1688 Thomas Foulkes House was a labor of love that fills locals with pride. This captivating red structure not only solidifies the historic Village of Crosswicks’ reputation as one of New Jersey’s most charming destinations but also offers a rare glimpse into 17th-century life. Nestled beside a tree-lined, meandering stream with preserved farmland extending behind the property, this charming cottage is brimming with authentic details that simply cannot be replicated. Foulkes himself laid the stone foundation, the bricks were shaped by hand, and the timber framing showcases rough edges. Antique bottles found on-site were incorporated into the rebuilt walls during the restoration. Handsome new doors and refined trim work in the surprisingly airy living room were custom crafted. Modern conveniences like updated plumbing, electric, and public sewer completely redone in 2017 would have been unimaginable to Foulkes. The original cooking fireplace was converted to gas for supplemental warmth at the flick of a switch.

While a new Fisher Paykel fridge and convection oven are sure to please any gourmand, the kitchen maintains a period-appropriate feel with earthy-hued granite beneath a beamed ceiling. In addition to a pantry, cubbies and built-ins provide ample storage in nearly every room. The comfortably sized and naturally bright main bedroom features another gas-ready fireplace. A second bedroom and a finished third floor offer space for an office, guest accommodations, or a dressing room rivaling those found in any modern home. This home is also equipped with a convenient EV charger. Herringbone brick, Belgian block edging, granite steps, and a real millstone are just some of the perfect materials that complement the exterior and matching storage shed. Proximity to major highways makes Princeton, Philadelphia, and NYC an easy drive away.
