For a cool $1.4 million, you too can own a piece of Pequannock history. The Ackerson Mead Clark House, # 3918 on the New Jersey Register of Historic Places, is currently up for sale (not pictured).
The 1870's era Greek Revival mansion featuring 21 rooms on 1.37 acres is located at 183 Mountain Ave, within walking distance of Moutainside Park. Amenities include an in-ground pool, several gardens, as well fireplaces and other details original to the structure.
Historically the home has been owned by the Ackerson, Mead, and Clark families of Pequannock. Since the 1970's it has been residence to the Schinman, Adamo, and Orlando families, but has most recently been owned by the upscale architects Wilkinson and Tamburin. The interior has seen extensive renovation, with some respect to the historic style, as indicated by the photos linked below.
The property was added to the Historic Register in 1981 and as a private residence does not appear to be subject to any restrictions upon the deed.
A full set of photos of what the interior currently looks like is available here:
