| No Comments

Thumbnail image for Hoferexterior.jpegInterested in claiming a piece of Metuchen history for your own?  This historic and lovely residence is currently available, listed with Maggie Cook at Prudential New Jersey Properties.  As part of our regular segment featuring Metuchen properties for sale, let us introduce you to 35 Hofer Court.

This spacious and beautiful home is the oldest continuous residence in Metuchen.  It's believed portions of the house date back to 1740.  There are five fireplaces within its eleven rooms and hardwood floors throughout - some of which are the original wide plank pine. 

Prominent past owners include the Ross family, for whom the house served as a farmhouse for their large farm that previously  comprised most of the Oak Hills area. Dr. & Mrs. Clarence Hofer purchased the home and two acres of land in 1939 and rotated the house to its current position on the property and onto a full basement. Dr. and Mrs Hofer also had the support beams and rafters reinforced with wood in steel while leaving the originals in place.  The most recent owners purchased the home in 1965 and carefully updated the bathrooms, kitchen, and utilities.
