It’s not just The White House that dresses up for Christmas!
This beautiful Stickley Craftsman Home (built in 1907) was part of the Metuchen Holiday House Tour this year and was decorated in a style that would take your breathe away. Hundreds of people visited this stunning home in the five hours it was open and it was much admired. The second floor alone boasted six separate Christmas trees! The Brass Lantern in Metuchen was responsible for all decorations.

Discover the timeless elegance of this stunning Stickley Craftsman home offering 6 bedrooms and 2.5 updated bathrooms. This home was built in 1907 and offers elements that define classic turn-of-the-century architecture which has been beautifully renovated and expanded to preserve the character, quality and workmanship of years gone by. Step into a gracious foyer separating living room and library. There are three fireplaces and two sets of original pocket doors. The reception rooms are large and flow gracefully into one another. The plaster ceiling in the living room and dining room is original and was designed by the first owner, John Barwell, a master plasterer who was responsible for interior plaster work and ornamentation for many important buildings, not least of which was the million-dollar Art Museum opened in Boston in 1909.
At the rear of the home is family space with a large eat-in kitchen, a powder room and open family room with built-in cabinetry and large fireplace. The beautiful glass conservatory is heated. The second floor offers five bedrooms and two full up-dated bathrooms. The third floor can be a bedroom or an office. Walk out to the gardens and you will discover a large stone patio, shaded by a redwood pergola set on stone pillars. The gardens are amazing and you can enjoy the koi pond and playground all wrapped in the security and privacy of an estate wall. There is also an over-sized garage with skylight and backdoors. All of this only 0.3 miles from the center of town and the train with a direct line into Manhattan.
