The John Mason House Federal style historic home built in 1695 and expanded over the years, is believed to be one of the oldest homes in Salem County. Originally this home was built by early settlers and situated upon thousands of acres. Today it is nicely situated on almost an acre of land and surrounded by land owned by the state of New Jersey, Green Acres Program. The property is within walking distance to the Alloway Creek Wetland Restoration Site which features two well-maintained trails to viewing platforms near the Delaware River. You can enjoy nature while relaxing in the peaceful backyard with lovely views of the meadow and open farmland. This property is only 4 miles from the famous Hancock House and many, many other historical sites located in Salem County. https://visitsalemcountynj.com/places-to-see/museums-and-historical-sites/ This Victorian era house boast a brick patterned wall (oldest know wall in Salem County) in the foyer, original fire places, hardwood floors, windows, doors, 2 staircases, and 3 full floors plus the basement! The attic area believed to originally feature a "ballroom" is currently not being utilized as living space, but could easily be converted into additional bedrooms. Although a diamond in the rough, this historical home is certainly worth the labor of love! Home is being sold as-is. Home is eligible for the Registers of Historic Places. Any/All cert/inspections to be complete by buyer at buyers sole expense.
