The Peter Nevius House - Antique Allure with Modern Enhancements

2388 Millstone River Road

Along Millstone River Road in Hillsborough, The Peter Nevius House stands as a testament to architectural evolution and loving preservation. Originally erected in the first half of the 18th century, this historic home began as a modest structure. Over the centuries, it has been transformed into a striking example of how homes can adapt and flourish. It still retains its antique allure while integrating modern enhancements that cater to contemporary living. Among the architectural additions that have shaped its current appearance, pointed gables and dormer windows draw particular attention, adding dimension to the home’s silhouette. Deep bay windows not only enrich the facade but also create cozy nooks within, housing two large window seats that invite relaxation. A beautifully enclosed porch offers a tranquil space for enjoying the natural surroundings in comfort, blending the indoors and outdoors seamlessly.

One of the most compelling aspects of this property is the dedication its owners have shown to both preserving and improving it. Their recent renovations have meticulously maintained the home’s historic character while ensuring it meets modern standards. The kitchen and bathrooms have been thoughtfully updated and many of the wood floors have been refinished. The addition of a new roof and fresh exterior paint underscore their commitment to the home’s upkeep. The floor plan includes a spacious dining room, a large and lovely living room with a fireplace, and the family room, also with a fireplace. There’s an eye-catching breakfast nook that adjoins the kitchen, a gourmet’s delight. A Dacor cooktop with a downdraft vent is on an expansive island, and there’s abundant cabinetry and counter space to spread out and create a delicious menu. Laundry is tucked in a closet, and a powder room is nearby. Upstairs are five bedrooms, all with ample closets and two luxuriously renovated bathrooms. Two of the five bedrooms feature original pumpkin pine flooring and all five bedrooms ooze with character. Throughout, beautiful built-ins and rich paneling add to the home’s timeless appeal.

Further enriching the 3+ acre property is a versatile outbuilding, with one room now fully finished and conditioned for year-round use. Currently serving as a gym, this adaptable space is ideal for a variety of uses, including a home office. A circular driveway keeps cars coming and going with ease. This home is absolutely the one to see for those who cherish old homes, offering the opportunity to live within a piece of history. Septic fully tested and minor repair complete!
