    I quite like the hallway where some of the furniture is OK but it's all ruined by the hideous colours on the woodwork/walls. The kitchen is really bad but not as bad as the master bedroom and the nasty "conservatory" thing direct from Home Depot. If it's on the market for $750,000 it has potential as a renovation project but you'd need to spend at least $100K knocking it into shape. Nice rugs.

    750000 for an 18th century house that large in the northeast? that seems really cheap. what's the catch? other than the hideous paint job some bad furniture which i assume the current owners would take with them?
    is boonton township, new jersey a total dump or something?

    The color scheme is horrendous. I would like to see the bones of the place without all the crappy paint and furnishings.

    That family room with the skylights (WTF? skylights in a colonial?) looks like a cheap addition to the back of the house.

    ETA: Just looked at the pics again, and it definitely is an addition, with that god-awful terrarium attached to it.

    It's really nothing special, but then I suppose that is the point.
