Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

One of Watchung's earliest homes, this vintage colonial was built around 1750, known as the Viebrock House, and has been carefully adapted to modern life with respect for its antique character. The front yard, enclosed for privacy, welcomes you into its secret garden. The large Dining Room features an oversized fireplace once used for both cooking and heat. The kitchen is quaint, yet functional. Behind the kitchen is the utility/laundry room, built right into the mountain. Upstairs, the spacious Living Room also boasts a fireplace and is a light and bright room. Four bedrooms have been updated, floors have been replaced. To be sold as is.
