Description

Back on the market with a freshly painted exterior! Rich in history and architecture, The Benjamin Johnston House is one of only two Victorian era Second Empire style homes in Lawrenceville! Historically, once part of the Rising Sun Tavern (1821) next door, the mid section of the home was divided from the Tavern and moved to its current location in 1880. The "new" house was later expanded when the distinct 3 story front portion was added in 1881. The rear carriage house was renovated to add more living space in 1989-1990. Inside the double door formal entry you will marvel at the center hall's original details. A continuous, curved banister starts at the foyer's octagonal newel post and beckons visitors, alongside stained balusters, to the second and third floors. The front portion of the home hosts the formal living room and banquet sized dining room, each appointed with 10 foot ceilings, custom 9 inch base moldings, decorative (non-working) fireplaces, and, in the dining room, thick crown molding! The second level of the home's front portion offers 9 foot ceilings, a primary bedroom complete with 2 double door closets and a fully tiled en-suite bath, and an oversized library/study with ample shelving for books or collectables and another decorative (non working) fireplace joined by the original slate hearth incised with the 1881 build date. This level also has a private doorway to the mid-section in-law suite. Up on the third floor are 2 additional guest bedrooms, a study with a wet bar and cabinetry, and full vintage tiled bath with double vanity, separate cosmetic vanity, and full tub/shower. Back on the ground floor, the original mid section of this extraordinary home is host to the chef's kitchen offering sparkling original pumpkin pine flooring, wood cabinetry, butcher block counters, stainless appliances, large island, computer desk, breakfast room with doors to the 2 tiered side deck, and convenient main floor laundry area. The kitchen is also open to the adjacent music room, perfect for any sized piano, game table, or media space! Above this is the home's in-law suite that encompasses a generous living room, large eat-in-kitchen, sunny bedroom and full bath. This space can be accessed either from inside the home's second floor hallway or from the exterior with its own staircase and deck. The rear section of the house is the converted carriage house, which has been reimagined as a large family room with beamed ceiling, wide plank hardwood flooring and endless custom built-ins and book cases. The balance of the carriage house's first floor is home to 3 guest bedrooms, a full 3 piece bath, and walkup access to the storage attic! There is a full storage basement under the front and mid sections of the home and 3 zone heating to easily manage spaces. Outside, this marvelous home offers a 2 story 2 car barn/garage complete with a workshop, 1/2 bath on the main level, and a second story greenhouse, which includes a gas heater, fans, and hay hoist. There is also a separate corn crib/shed for additional storage options! Welcome Home!
