Own a piece of living history! A decisive win by the Patriots during the Second Battle of Trenton was the turning point of the American Revolution. Fought on Mill Hill and beyond, the striking residential enclave of the same name remains a beacon in the City of Trenton today. Neatly dressed townhomes preserve the ambience of late eighteenth century living . . . while forward-thinking artisans, intellectuals, professionals and political leaders living there today maintain a progressive and modern vitality shaping the positive direction of “The Capitol City” and the nation as well. Edwin Fitzgeorge, an early publisher of The Trenton Times (1886-1888), once owned the home standing at 253 Jackson Street. Certainly, this home holds historic charm; it’s listed on The National Register of Historic Places. The current stewards cherish the pumpkin pine floors found on the 2nd/3rd levels as much as Mr. Fitzgeorge. The first level floors are finished with quartersawn oak and darker inlays which appear to be mahogany. Yesteryear’s charm is harkened by the horse’s hitch which greets as you approach the front door. The quaint courtyard in the rear provides respite and boasts vivid perennial borders now just as it likely did in the 1880s. Of course the petit salon and spacious dining room lend themselves to more formal affairs. Solidly built in the 1800’s and meticulously maintained now, one feels the imprint of one-and-a-half century’s service while ascending the stairs to private quarters on the second and third floors. Each level is appointed with two large bedrooms. The configuration of the primary sleeping quarters allows the adjoining room to serve as a home office. You just as well might imagine this space as a lavish spa/bath or spacious walk-in closet. Given its age, the home was constructed as a five bedroom dwelling; while no alterations have been made to bedroom count, today’s conventions would consider this a four bedroom home. The laundry has been conveniently located on the second floor and the refuge to summer’s heat is now provided by central air. Oversized windows bathe all rooms with generous natural light. Mill Hill residents who often work in Philadelphia, NYC, or even Washington, DC, readily attest to the convenience of Trenton’s Transit Hub being mere steps away and neighborhood dining options abound. A spirited neighborhood association hosts an annual garden tour in late spring and a dazzling tour of home interiors to welcome the winter holidays. Locals enjoy the Mill Hill Park, the Passage Theatre and the nearby Ellarslie Museum as all imbue their spirits. Bicyclists and outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy connections to Delaware/Raritan canal paths as well as hikes along the majestic Delaware River. A fuller view of Mill Hill activities can be found at www.trentonmillhill.org and more information about area amenities and events at www.destinationtrenton.com. Life in Mill Hill truly offers an oasis of calm in a very hectic and increasingly vibrant city. How exciting is this chance to be the next owner of this amazing home!
