A Contemporary Aesthetic In A Historic Home The storybook setting of this historic home, on peaceful grounds just a short distance to all that Pennington Borough is loved for including the Toll Gate Grammar School down the street, provides a serene place to call home. The Samuel Moore House, circa 1760, features renovations that provide the perfect marriage of old and new. Hand-hewn beams, random width flooring, original doors and fixtures, and multiple fireplaces blend with renovated bathrooms and the kitchen. The main floor is comprised of the formal rooms both with Dutch doors to a stone patio, a home office/study with a fireplace, a newer powder room, and the kitchen renovation, which opens into a family room addition. This open concept layout includes areas for casual dining and relaxing plus a library loft, and a wood-burning stove to keep everyone toasty. Overlooking the 1.27-acre grounds with a stream, a bridge, and original outbuildings, you’d never guess you were so close to so much! Above, two of the three bedrooms are in the original part of the home along with the laundry room and a renovated bathroom. The main bedroom was expanded to include its own private bathroom and a true dressing room with built-in wardrobe storage. The combination of historic and contemporary is handled beautifully in this rare find of a home!
