Academic’s/dog lover’s/gardener’s/history buff’s paradise. You will find this stately 1898 farmhouse Victorian located on a third of an acre in the charming hamlet of Dayton, New Jersey. The home is painted classic white with hunter green trim and has a large front porch shaded by climbing roses. Just down the street is a renowned restaurant, US post office, and the town green, which is decorated for the holidays when the town residents gather to put up the annual Christmas tree. Close to halal meat market, as well as a large specialty markets within easy walking distance. The South Brunswick public school is amongst the top 20% of all high schools in New Jersey based on combined math and reading proficiency scores in the 2020-2021 school year and has a graduation rate of 97%. Located between prestigious Princeton and Rutgers Universities, this home was owned by an academic couple for more than 40 years. They turned the main outbuilding into a conference center complete with heating, electricity, and a half bath for their meeting guests. Above the conference room is a secluded book- lined study. The conference center also has a specialty dog shower, which can also be used for sweaty gardeners, or overnight guests who prefer the privacy of sleeping in the study. There are two other outbuildings on the property (currently used for storage and for gardening equipment) and a large greenhouse. The back yard is fully fenced and planted with croci, roses, daylilies, clematis, Rose of Sharon, daffodils, peonies, snowdrops and mature trees. There is a compost bin and a covered swing as well as an arbor. Care has been taken to avoid use of chemicals on the lawn and garden as befitting the desire to have an ecologically safe preserve for the bunnies and pets that love to frolic in the yard. Between the conference center and the house is a fenced kennel (a series of beautiful golden retrievers were loved over the years) and a concrete patio, which has a garden table and a barbecue grill for outdoor entertaining. This patio area is shaded by a gorgeous sycamore tree, and given ample privacy by the house, which makes it an ideal place to sit out in the summer. The double living room has a hand plastered ceiling and built-in bookshelves. There is good flow to the home with a floor plan that allows for easy circulation of residents and guests. The kitchen has hand-built birch cabinets and an octagonal dining nook with a handmade Tiffany-style lamp. There is a large detached pantry and all major appliances will remain for the buyer. The downstairs bathroom has a large soaker tub and shower and has been crafted with an artistic undersea-themed design. The dining room has a large closet and built-in linen shelves and can seat eight comfortably — although as many as 20 have squeezed in for celebrations. From the front door there is a foyer and a substantial original staircase leading to the second floor, which has two bedrooms and a large den, as well as anothe
