Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Many people know Mill Hill as a very special section of Trenton with historic district protection and pride. It is a charming area where brick sidewalks and historic row houses look much like the streets of Georgetown. What's more of a secret is that a handful of these renovated gems overlook the gentle waters of Assunpink Creek. This rare freestanding home hides sun-dappled gardens, stone walkways and brick patios that step down to a view that seems almost impossible. How can such natural serenity exist in the city? The interior of the house is just as intriguing with 19th century details catching the eye at every turn. A vestibule entry buffers the opened up living/dining room with a gas fireplace and 5 large windows. The eat-in kitchen with hidden laundry joins a screened porch, so you can enjoy that magical setting in nearly any weather. A perfectly positioned skylight leads the way upstairs, where one bedroom offers amazing treetop views and the other has a lovely dressing room. The bathroom in between has exposed brick and a claw-foot tub. An office/lounge, also brightened by skylights, comprises the top floor. This is an excellent commuter location with easy access to regional rail to New York and Philadelphia as well as Amtrak. Major highways serve the State Capital.
