Bordentown City: Burlington County's best-kept secret...with public transportation to Philadelphia and NYC; also a quick commute to Trenton and Princeton. This historic town has many lovely 18th century homes that have been beautifully restored. Among them, #25 Farnsworth Avenue. Whether you're a history buff enthralled by the story of a key revolutionary figure or just drawn to the congenial charm of bustling Bordentown City, the Stephen Sayre House is not to be missed. Built in the early half of the 18th century and later home to Colonial Patriot and private secretary to Benjamin Franklin, Stephen Sayre, this dignified 3-story residence retains an abundance of original features proudly restored by the current owners. Marble mantles, tall windows, handsome double doors and even the stone stagecoach step were all present when the British invaded. The impressive formal rooms and the eat-in kitchen, equipped with stainless steel appliances, are generous in size. Winder stairs next to a laundry/garden room lead up to a private cozy room. There are six bedrooms served by two large bathrooms, plus a separate one-bedroom apartment with its own lovely garden entrance. Specimen trees thrive on the rare double lot also home to two attractive storage sheds and a babbling koi pond. A driveway paved in red brick accommodates three cars. Don't miss a wonderful opportunity to be the next owner of this Hilltop neighborhood home.
