Description:
Rocky Hill's historic Voorhees House is recognized locally and nationally as an American treasure with a legacy spanning four centuries. The old working well, stately trees and stone walls stand as enduring reminders of generations past. Thankfully, over the course of 8 years, the current owners in collaboration with local artisans poured heart and soul into renewing the entire property and sensitively modernizing it as needed. Now, grand rooms with wide plank floors and hand-blown glass windows are comfortably air conditioned and avid cooks will be delighted to find professional kitchen appliances and soapstone counters. The circa 1780 dining room has the original cooking fireplace and winding stairs to a loft. Later 1840's twin parlors were united to create a generous and warm gathering room. Cast away the day's stresses in the screened porch, the sunroom or the family room. Three period appropriate baths serve 3-4 bedrooms, each with the versatility to suit changing needs. Moreover, the spacious master bedroom has an original fireplace. A stone shed, generous outdoor enclosed shower, and separate garage complete the acre-plus property, once a working farm. An additional, fourth bedroom could be created by subdividing the spacious master suite to its previous configuration of two separate rooms.
