     Entertainment-friendly outdoor spaces include the covered wrap-around front porch approached by a paver stone walkway, a three-season screened-in porch overlooking the verdant backyard, and an Italian tile patio. Inside, the eight-room floor plan is detailed with spacious gathering areas, gleaming wide board pumpkin pine flooring, a wood-burning fireplace and traditional molding treatments. Introducing this desirable home is a foyer appointed with wide board pumpkin pine floors, classic millwork and staircase. The elegant living room features crown and chair rail moldings, pumpkin pine wide board wood flooring and an atrium door opening to the front porch. Similar design elements in the adjacent formal dining room include the same wood flooring and crown molding treatments. 
     An abundance of country charm in the updated kitchen makes this bright, airy room even more appealing. Painted oak cabinetry, gleaming granite counter-tops, wide board laminate flooring, stainless steel appliances, a storage pantry and a breakfast area with sliding glass doors to the screened porch are among the highlights. Continuing the open flow is an inviting family room anchored by a raised hearth wood-burning brick fireplace and offering a door access to the porch. Also on the main floor is a convenient laundry room and updated powder room with marble tile flooring.
     Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom presents lustrous oak hardwood flooring, his and her sliding double door closets and private master bath.

     Charm and natural beauty characterize the borough of Califon in Hunterdon County, a village featuring wonderful examples of Victorian architecture. The Califon Historical Society registered 170 structures with the National Register of Historic Places, and dwellings here are marked with the names of the builders and their dates of establishment rather than with street numbers. Local businesses housed in the antique buildings include an eclectic array of shops and services.  Califon was once a station stop on the High Bridge Branch of the Central Railroad of New Jersey. The rail line was abandoned in 1976 and now serves as a Hunterdon County-administered rail trail called Columbia Trail, which runs south to High Bridge and north to Morris County. Local and interstate highways convenient to Califon include Routes 31, 22 and 78.
