About 119 South Montgomery Street

Charmingly restored 1880’s townhouse in Trenton’s Historic Mill Hill District literally steps from SEPTA, NJ Transit, state capitol and museum, overlooking Assunpink Creek and adjoining Mill Hill Park, a 14-acre tree lined oasis, where the decisive Battles of Trenton took place in a city that just made the list of US News & World Report’s Best Places to Live! Nestled on a secluded cobblestone square, this striking home anchors a row of six 19th century residences and boast the very best block of Trenton’s new “Georgetown.” Sunlight pours through huge windows on three sides and a brick patio sits high above the gentle waters of Assunpink Creek with the joyful sounds of a neighboring playground in the distance. This four-story sunny Italianate Revival gem features 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, office, dining and living rooms, a garden level kitchen which opens to a shady brick patio spilling into a 14-acre state park, a fully finished basement which could also second as a granny flat, rec room and an intimate sundeck overlooking the creek and park. Once a bed & breakfast, the freshly painted interior retains wonderful 1880’s detailing, beginning with the vestibule entry’s etched glass doors opening to reveal an elegant staircase and plaster ceiling medallion. Even more intricate plasterwork adorns the front living room, along with a cast iron decorative fireplace. Another fireplace edged with tile joins built-ins and a bay in the dining room. A wet bar is especially handy when entertaining with the kitchen downstairs, in keeping the home’s Victorian roots. With a large media/game room served by a full bath, lots of evenings will surely be spent enjoying the comfortable lower level. The main suite is outfitted with custom interior shutters and has a private bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. A hall bath with a claw foot tub serves bedroom two and an office. The top floor has yet another full bath between 2 more bedrooms. With such comfortably sized accommodations, authentic period charm and a special urban setting, it’s easy to see why visitors chose to rest their heads here while in the Capitol City. The neighborhood offers great transportation with six-minute walk to SEPTA AND NJ Transit, 1 hour to Philadelphia, 1:20 hour to NYC, 10 minutes to Princeton and steps from the State capital and museum, restaurants, shops and other cultural venues. Nearby scenic Delaware Canal Towpath offers extensive bike/jogging paths. The house is energy efficient with Double paned insulated windows, two new Energy Star heat pump/AC units, a new super-efficient Heat pump water heater and the walls have been insulated with spray foam.
