Standing prominently at the bend of an adorable little lane just one turn off Main Street and a block from scenic Brainerd Lake, one of historic Cranbury’s oldest homes awaits a new owner who is ready to write the next chapter of its ongoing story. The classic white Colonial began as the centerpiece of the 150-acre Parsonage Farm and served as the manse for the First Presbyterian Church, the town’s oldest existing institution. It still retains a country feel with grounds of 1.74 acres. An enormous screened porch is the ideal spot to survey the park-like yard and while away a warm day. While the mid-18th century house benefits from an addition that includes a 2-car garage, mudroom, and main suite, the rest of the interior is delightfully filled with original elements that announce its historical importance to all who enter. The banister in the gracious foyer is the first eye-catching feature. The formal rooms are large with wide-plank floors—thankfully, in good condition! Two fireplaces remain, one anchoring the living room and one charmingly tucked into the corner of the family room. The kitchen is the size and central position conducive to a modern household. The same can be said for the first-floor main suite. There are 5 more bedrooms upstairs and two walk-in closets. One of the original Parsonage Farm’s many outbuildings was restored and stands across the street as the centerpiece of Cranbury’s historic barn park, where it has served as the setting of many beautiful weddings. Likewise, this home will surely be the site of many memorable celebrations to come!
