EXTRAORDINARY HOME - 4BR-3.5BA, blend of old (circa 1800) & new construction, located on 2+acres of a private cul-de-sac in one of East Windsor's best neighborhoods! Rich in history and commonly known as the "Mount-Ely-Hancock House" it was originally situated on Disbrow Hill Road on 308 acres surrounding its current location. That original house was moved in 1981, by placing steel I-beams underneath which were placed atop the newly constructed Lower Level brick-faced foundation walls. Lastly, in 1999, the Great Room and underlying Garage, (on the right) were constructed! As the first house constructed on Hidden Springs Lane, this 4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath Colonial was placed on a choice 2.66 acre lot on this private cul-de-sac of only eleven houses.

A Large Dining Room is also located off the Kitchen and features more sturdy pumpkin pine floors, wood molding and chair rails, a 9-foot ceiling, and a perfect light fixture for the room.
