39 North Main Street

Pennington, NJ 08534

Elegant, expanded and up-to-the-minute, the stylish renewal of the historic Thompson-Holcombe House exemplifies Pennington's heritage in the heart of town. Built c.1850 in the Federal style, it has been thoughtfully refreshed over the years with sensitivity to the classic proportions of the original rooms as the house has grown to accommodate modern life. The front door with transom and sidelights in the Greek Revival style of the time introduces the central hall, stairway and the two front rooms, both with fireplaces, one decorative, one woodburning. On the left, what was a parlor or library is now a spacious office. On the right, the Living Room is enhanced by an exquisite Adam style ceiling medallion. It flows through double doors to a Dining Room that easily seats ten for formal dining and is flanked by 3 sets of French windows, in turn opening to a generous brick patio for more casual summer entertaining. Throughout, refinished gleaming wide-plank pine floors hearken back to the home's origins as do the pegged oak floors in the newer extensions. The large Kitchen offers everything the chef desires with the latest in high-end stainless appliances, expansive granite counters, quality cabinetry and an oversized island. Eat in or out, it has its own bluestone terrace. The adjacent Family Room features unique exposed hand-hewn beams and old brick exterior walls that add a warm country note for relaxing. Completing the main floor is full-bath Powder Room and a Guest Bedroom with lovely views of the back lawns and mature trees. Upstairs is the Master Suite, also with serene views to the grounds. Adjacent to the bedroom is a luxurious and spacious 'ensuite' Bath with an extra-large walk-in closet/dressing room. Two original front bedrooms, flanked by family bath, complete the second floor, with accents of the exposed beam and brick and pine floors introduced on the first level. Added in 2013, the property includes the indispensable 10 ft high, 36 x 26 garage and a New England style shed for storage of gardening necessities and outdoor equipment. The Thompson-Holcombe House was the first home on Pennington's 125th Anniversary Historic House Tour. Pennington is minutes to Princeton, I-95, train stations to New York and Philadelphia and is served by the top-rated Hopewell Valley Regional School System.
