Welcome to the historic William Rouse Homestead. With the earliest sections dating to the mid-eighteenth century, this white-washed stone residence has evolved over time to provide a handsome backdrop for an elegant lifestyle. Located across the street from Lawrenceville’s community gardens and with a sidewalk that leads back into the heart of the village, the setting in enchanting. Updated with Victorian trim to keep up with the styles of the time, a charming blend of old and new includes a richly decorated staircase, brackets under the eaves and a handsome front door painted an alluring turquoise blue. Later, what has come to be known as the airplane bathroom, was added to provide a second full bath. Spacious first floor rooms are light-filled and arranged with a flow that permits large scale entertaining and at the same time, there are many cozy areas to enjoy as well. Very large windows in the living room brighten the interior beyond what is typical for an old stone house. The oversized dining room has a comfortable seating area in front of a fireplace which has just been rebuilt with state-of-the-art technology. Cherry cabinets, granite counter tops and high quality stainless steel appliances are arranged under a bank of windows to create a warm and inviting kitchen. Adjacent is yet another charming room which could serve as a breakfast room, family room or study. With a wall of shelving and a great view of the secluded blue stone patio and yard beyond, this room will become everybody’s favorite place to hang. On the second floor, the original wide floor boards will always elicit comment. Three comfortable bedrooms share a cleverly designed bathroom. On the third floor a large play room and an office with French doors to spur concentration are lined with storage spaces, including a cedar closet.
