Lorraine Hunt Kopacz Kienlen Lattmann Sotheby's International Realty
A magical property, sited in Historic Franklin Corners, which exudes charm, comfort and envelops its occupants in yesterday's history, while enjoying today's amenities. The property consists of an updated, five-bedroom true Colonial home, restored Barn/Workshop, eye-catching Smokehouse, three-car detached Garage with loft above, totally refurbished in-ground Swimming Pool with brick decking (2020), and enchanting land, through which a Mill Race provides peaceful background babble. Painstaking attention to detail with every exquisite update of baths, kitchen, windows and doors call to you. Views from the rear Patio offer a spillway that at one time powered the historic Mill. Breathtaking seasons of color are provided by thoughtfully designed seasonal plantings. Artfully constructed stone walls frame the Mill Race and incredibly lush land and hardscape, and the original "Footpath of Revolutionary Soldiers to Morristown" meander across this magnificent piece of history. This original Van Dorn Home provides four levels of comfortable living, enables glorious entertaining in the spacious public rooms and quiet private bedroom suites for the owners and their guests.
