Let’s take a step back from our farmhouse search in Philadelphia’s suburbs for a moment and cross on over to Jersey territory. You ready? Okay, great because we found the sweetest rustic home near Columbus, New Jersey and it is an honest to goodness charmer!

First off, it’s over 200 years old and has much of its original flooring and millwork, which have been restored throughout the years. The second bathroom also retains its original claw foot tub. Of its updates, which have been consistent these past fifteen years, are newer roofing and siding and custom period windows. The main bath, notes the listing, has been renovated to include a Jacuzzi tub, stall shower, and double sinks. Central air has also been added.

Classic farmhouse features within the 3,500-square-foot residence include two staircases, three fireplaces, and a cabinet-abundant kitchen, which is, admittedly, quite a modern room what with a granite-topped center island, Sub-Zero fridge and double ovens. Outside, the property offers a chicken coop, two paddocks with fencing, and outbuildings. A pond is also on the premises and can be viewed from the house.

Listing agent Sandra Lloyd tells us the home recently went under contract.
