Lovers of 1920s homes will want to see this Dutch Colonial gem, built in 1926 and meticulously maintained and updated by its current owners since 1975.
Located next to a corner lot on a wide, tree-lined avenue in the Hiltonia section of west Trenton, the stately home at the top of an impeccable brick walkway sports its original slate roof, pale yellow siding and white trim, and a cherry red door that opens into a spacious and welcoming foyer.
The traditionally styled lower level offers a dining room with two built-in corner cabinets to display china; an expanded eat-in kitchen with ample cabinetry, island, gas stove, laundry closet and bay window seat overlooking a deep and nicely landscaped backyard; a living room that stretches from front to back with a wood-burning fireplace as its focal point; a powder room; and a sun room with beadboard ceiling and casement windows on three sides. There are polished hardwood floors nearly throughout.
A centrally located turned staircase leads to the second level, which offers a master suite with remodeled bathroom featuring a pedestal sink and basketweave tile in shales of tan, cream and pale sage, and two additional bedrooms sharing a renovated hall bath with white tile accented with cobalt blue. The third floor contains a guest room, cedar-lined closet, and storage. The unfinished basement is recently painted, and offers ample storage and a powder room. A standalone garage borders the deep backyard, which is partially fenced and professionally landscaped.
Throughout the home, find such touches of 1920s craftsmanship as a rounded bottom step and newel post, built-in bookcases and drawers, spacious doorways and rooms, and solid-wood doors.
The Hiltonia neighborhood, about three miles from downtown Trenton, was established in the 1920s by Sam Hilton, a local developer, and features a mix of home styles, among them fieldstone Tudors, Dutch colonials, Cotswold cottages, split levels, mid-century modern ranches, and attached townhouses. The neighborhood is bordered by a canal, Cadwalader Park, and state-owned lands, and provides commuters with easy access, within minutes, to 29, 95 and 195, as well as several bridges (tolled and not) to Pennsylvania.
