250-Year-Old House In New Jersey Is A Steal For Historic Home Lovers

House hunting history buffs, rejoice! A property available in Mount Holly, New Jersey, is waiting to welcome you home. Built in 1775, the house is known as "The Carr House" and was occupied by the British during the Revolutionary War. It's hard to get more vintage than that. Outside of being historically beautiful, the Carr House has a really unique feature not seen often in modern houses — a custom innook fireplace

Best of all, while a lot of very old homes are small and low, this home is impressively spacious at almost 3,000 square feet. So, if you're in the Mount Holly area, come check out this dream house with an illustrious past. It's within walking distance of downtown, so there are plenty of shops and restaurants to explore as well. Even if you aren't in the market for a new home, it is fun to explore homes with history. 

Your own library

Vintage homes are already dreamy, with interior features that modern homes just cannot rival. For example, does it get any better than discovering a home that has its own library? This Mount Holly home is not only move-in ready, as it's in impressive condition for a 200-year-old house, but it has a candlelit hallway that leads to a beautiful library, as seen in the listing

Connected to that room is the kitchen with that unique fireplace. Anyone who hosts family or friends at their home knows that the kitchen tends to be where everyone gathers. A fireplace makes it cozy and inviting without sacrificing any cooking or storage space. In fact, the fireplace expands the room's availability, as you can easily cook pizzas, soup, and more inside of it. Its classic black design calls back to its original era, and when combined with the home's brand new sink and fixtures, you'll love creating special meals for loved ones just as residents of the home did in generations past.

Backyard oasis

If you love to host friends and family, you'll appreciate the large backyard that connects to the home. Perfect for summer evenings, the yard is a clean canvas ready to add a fire pit, hot tub, or anything else the new owner dreams up. There's even enough space to put in a pool. However, the vintage charm isn't totally lost, as an ivory statue, garden benches, a white picket fence garden, and terracotta pots remain. 

The yard is dotted with generations-old trees that shade the area and provide a tranquil ambiance. Green thumbs will be inspired by the yard's layout to plant a rose garden or incorporate other 18th-century greenery. The home is also close to New Jersey's top downtown restaurants and tasting rooms, so you can opt to have an evening out and then invite friends back to your home to finish out the night relaxing in the yard on those warm summer New Jersey nights.
