Property Description for 23 CHESTERFIELD CROSSWICKS, CROSSWICKS NJ 08515

The Thomas Foulkes House...Step back in history, long before there was a United States of America, and welcome yourself to a new home built in 1688. "Restored" from top to bottom in recent years, this home was certainly one of the first homes ever built in what is now the United States. Thomas Foulkes a original settler who arrived in the "new world" with the Quakers aboard the "Kent" was deeded tract of land (Assunpink to Rancocas) from Mahlon Stacy who had been granted the land from the brother of King Charles II himself. Foulkes built the home and lived there with his wife Mary. Prior to coming to North America, Thomas and Mary were married in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England. Own a piece of not just local history, but original American history at its finest. The craftmanship is like no other. The mortise and tenon timber frame was added to the original stone foundation. Upon entry into the dining area one is greeted with a grand fire place. The kitchen has been provided a modern conveinence of granite countertop and appliances that include dishwasher , refrigerator and stove. The kitchen is unique as it maintains the original contour of the foundation walls that Foulkes placed by hand over 300 years ago. The family room was added in recent years giving the home extra living space. The second floor has 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. As you make your way to the 3rd floor you cant help but notice the hand plained wood work within the original non painted planking. Foulkes would have loved the new wiring, public sewer and water that this home has been upgraded with. The lot sits next to a lazy runoff stream that enhances the beauty of its space and hosts a replicated storage unit. The home is small by todays standards but is consistent with the early date it was built. It would be an ideal home for someone looking to downsize and reside in an historic village. Close to all major highways the village of Crosswicks makes for an easy commute to Princeton, Philadelphia or NYC. This 1200 sq ft home is waiting for the right owners to add to its historical legacy. Serious buyers only. Must be accompanied by listing agent.
