Description

If your dream is to have your pick of seven bedrooms in which to have breakfast served in bed, you must consider this charming Victorian home. Or possibly, you may envision creating a sophisticated Bed & Breakfast catering to the carriage trade or simply a paradise to call home. Frances McCrea wanted only the best for herself in the 1870+GGs and now it is your opportunity. Located a few blocks from the center of Frenchtown, this stately home is a whimsical mixture of old and new, delightful and mysterious. Thanks to the work of a talented theater lighting director and a gourmet hostess, the McCrea house was saved from neglect and put back into service as a favorite among those visiting the historic Frenchtown area. A new owner can continue to serve the public as all permits for a B&B are in place. Just as easily, the McCrea home can become your home and the envy of your friends. The latest renovation to the home is a kitchen that brings a touch of modern-day convenience. When you are ready to entertain in grand style, a pair of pocket doors opens wide between the large dining room and the kitchen for a very dramatic setting. When it is time to retire to the parlor, simply close the doors and return to the clean-up at your convenience. If you are operating as a B&B, your family quarters are behind the kitchen and a full bedroom suite is in the lower level, away from your guests but within a few steps if you are needed. However, if this is your home, you will likely want to select one of the five other en-suite bedrooms for your own. Or, if you want absolute privacy, there is a very special guest cottage with a 7th bedroom. A large rear yard and patio for al fresco dining. A two car garage and plenty of off-street parking. A short stroll will bring you to Frenchtown+GGs charming shops, fine local restaurants and the scenic Delaware River. Current furnishing are available for purchase. Frenchtown is located along the banks of the Delaware River on the Hunterdon Plateau, thirty-two miles northwest of Trenton. The first bridge across the Delaware at Frenchtown was a six-span covered wooden bridge built in 1841 on the five piers that still stand today, and the community is a gateway to Pennsylvania. Towpaths are now a popular biking and hiking trail from Trenton through Lambertville to Frenchtown and beyond.
