An outstanding example of classical Greek Revival design, the John L. Sharp residence has a happy heritage, having been built in 1850 as a wedding gift for the original owners. Moved from its original setting to make way for the Round Valley Reservoir, the house was kept intact and now has 3,000+ square feet of finished living space. From its front entry with Ionic columns, to the tall windows, high ceilings and substantial millwork inside, this home conveys a sense of formality balanced with warm, inviting features. Wide-plank pumpkin floors sanded to restore their original luster, wood-burning fireplaces in the living room and kitchen and sun-washed interiors are appealing throughout the seasons. Its floor plan, with wide center hall flanked by formal rooms, accommodates a transitional or more contemporary design sensibility. The updated, eat-in kitchen features an 8-burner Peerless Premier gas range, neutral white cabinetry topped by granite and a new herringbone-pattern tile backsplash, a farmhouse sink, wood floors and a brick fireplace. A 20 x 21 great room with volume ceiling, built-ins and French doors opening to a covered rear porch and a sunroom with slate floor and access to the backyard are two favorite spots for relaxing. Private quarters on the second floor also have high ceilings and pumpkin pine flooring. Accommodations include a main suite bedroom with beautiful bath with stall shower, plus three additional, good-sized bedrooms, and a hall bath. At just over 1 acre, this freshly landscaped property is a manageable size yet with the rear porch and slate patio, it provides lovely outdoor spaces for entertaining. Located minutes from the Round Valley recreation area with its abundance of walking trails, this area is a perfect setting for those who want a relaxed, rural sensibility along with quick access to I-78 for commuting and the commercial areas of Clinton and Flemington for daily essentials. The home is also 3.6 miles from a bus stop with nonstop service to manhattan and 2.6 miles from NJT train station with service to NY.
