    Description

    Once a prominent stone meetinghouse, Amwell Baptist Church (1834,1884), surrounded by gently rolling farmland of the Amwell Valley in the Wertsville Historic District, offers unique features with a soaring, 24-foot barrel wooden vaulted ceiling; thick, exposed stone walls; long, pointed arched windows; and an added vestibule with an unusual folk-art, 8-pointed star motif above an eclectic Eastlake-Carpenter Gothic doorway. Its interior also retains a striking altar wall and Carpenter Gothic ceiling, along with other original woodwork circa 1884+GGall features only found in an old stone church. The owner of this one-of-a-kind home transformed it into a modern abode that is sure to wow! The structure had not served as a church for several years when it was purchased and completely repointed, gutted and renovated, creating an interior with a great room centered around the period altar. The original choir loft is now the ideal work-from-home spot near a half bathroom with an exterior entrance along with a large room that would be an ideal artist studio or oversized family room. Above the loft is an attic storage space which overlooks massive hand-hewn rafters and beams. Beautiful wood floors, a big, open kitchen with cupboards utilizing original re-purposed lumber, one en-suite bedroom and a second bedroom having its own full bath just outside the door, a sweet office with exposed stone walls with a side entrance and stairway leading to the loft comprise the main level+GGwhich also houses the laundry room and an oversized pantry. Zoned for a home business, there is also a legal commercial shop with a half bath with a separate entrance. An oversized, two-bay garage that is accessed from the house has another loft space on the second level, once a vintage clock workshop. Big windows look out upon an adjacent horse farm from here, making it a peaceful place to run a business. Like nothing else on the market, this home embraces its history while still being thoroughly modern, warm, and inviting. It is a must-see for anyone who is looking for something truly special! This property is located in the Wertsville Historic District and is on the National Historic Registry.
