À propos de 123 South Main Street

Living well is stylishly supported in the crown jewel of Allentown, a quaint lakeside village known for its Revolutionary history and central Jersey location. The current owners have transformed this in-town estate into a refuge for regular escapes from Manhattan by adding every creature comfort while burnishing the rich architecture. Respectful to its classical design, but also adding freshness that makes it feel like living in the pages of magazine, new owners could move in and start hosting parties with a terrific flow through grand rooms with 10' ceilings, three fireplaces, glowing wood floors, large windows and doors trimmed in a heft and style that cannot be duplicated. As expected, a well-proportioned, custom kitchen with artfully distressed cabinetry under a tin ceiling would please Martha Stewart herself. A screened porch opening off the dining room, family room and kitchen has a very private terrace above it, offering access to fresh air from the bedroom level. An elegant staircase rises to the second-floor bedrooms which are pretty and restful. The third floor is made up of very useful rooms behind eyebrow windows and at the top, a belvedere for surveying the grounds with beautiful gardens, converted barn, large pool and vintage greenhouse. It is also a good spot for taking in the size of the property which is made up of two lots allowing for the addition of a tennis court perhaps, or guest house. Upon exiting the main house with its soothing color palette offset by crisp white detailing, the experience becomes more bucolic. The thoughtfully restored the barn is not only a dramatic backdrop for the lavish pool, it also provides immense privacy. The interior of the barn, with interesting hardware and construction, has been cleverly devised to contain a large workshop, garage spaces, an incredible office and a truly unexpected large loft that could host musical performances, plays and unforgettable parties. More intimate spots lend themselves for enjoying a sunset cocktail, rocking chair storytelling, or keeping craft projects out of sight. A cutting garden, a putting green, and the restored Lord & Burnham greenhouse is great for the serious gardener or for use as yet another intriguing party venue. Excellent access to all modes of transportation.
