The outbuildings aren't anything to sneeze at. Pre-fab storage sheds these are not. There's the original laundry house, orchards and pastures, horse stables, kennels, a guest house, a machine shop, and a working greenhouse. But wait, there's more! This gem also boasts an annex building with a bowling alley. The grounds feature manicured lawns and preserved stone walls.

From the property's Zillow listing: he Morris Estate was part of an original land grant from the King of England to Major General Staats Long Morris and later passed on to his brother Lewis Morris, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The three story “manor house”, set on a fieldstone foundation, dates back to the beginning of the nineteenth century.

As of November, 2023, the current listing price is $2,750,000. If you've got the millions to spend on this turnkey property, the possibilities are endless. Open it up for agritourism, build a hobby farm, host weddings, or maybe even an epic corn maze for the fall!
