Property Description

The Historic Sayre House (circa 1760) with 4300 sq ft of living space offers a unique and rich history combined with an impeccably and tastefully updated home well suited to today's lifestyle, including multi zoned heating and central air. As you approach the home you are greeted by brick sidewalks & driveway, original pediment over the front entry, mansard roof with arched dormers and restored 200+ year old wrought iron fencing framing one of the largest yards in Bordentown City. Entering the home you are welcomed into the center hall foyer with a remarkable wrap around staircase leading all the way to the third floor. Through the 8' double doors to your left is the grand parlor that boasts 10 ft ceilings, nearly 7 ft windows with custom cafe shutters, original wood flooring and fireplace with gorgeous marble mantle. To the right of the foyer is the dining room featuring original wood flooring, another marble encased fireplace and cafe shutters allowing plenty of natural light. The spacious eat-in kitchen with center island, original wood flooring, granite counters, SS appliance package, pantry and custom built cabinetry is well suited to today's lifestyle. The first floor also includes a half bath off the foyer, spacious mudroom/laundry room with slate and warm wood flooring and a winding stairway to the sun drenched 2nd floor family room. The second level offers the primary bedroom with original fireplace and marble mantle, primary bath with soaking tub, stall shower, double sinks and walk-in closet. The second full bath is just off the hallway and features a claw foot tub with shower surround. The sun drenched family room located on this floor overlooks the nearly half acre yard and is an ideal spot to enjoy your morning coffee. There are also 2 additional spacious bedrooms on the second floor. As you approach the 3rd floor you'll notice the nearly 10 ft ceilings, charming arched-nook windows in every room and the landing. There are 3 additional bedrooms on this level. With 7 bedrooms total this home offers many options for home office spaces, "zoom rooms" or whatever fits your needs. The newly renovated, income producing first floor apartment offers a private entrance off the side courtyard, new kitchen, full bath, living room area and 1 bedroom. The income from the apartment pays most of your annual taxes. As you exit the back of the home you'll enter the nearly half acre yard that includes a spacious patio, two koi ponds, a garden shed, historic horse stable/barn like structure (with electric) currently used as a workshop plus an underground sprinkler system. Located in Bordentown's Hilltop District the Stephen Sayre House is within easy walking distance of Hilltop Park, quaint local shops, restaurants, 2 yacht clubs along the Delaware River and the Riverline Lite Rail with trains connecting to New York and Philadelphia for easy commuting. You'll simply LOVE this impeccably maintained, truly move-in ready, classic 3 story colonial in the heart of historic Bordentown City with freshly painted interior plus all the modern amenities for today's comfortable lifestyle .
