About This Old House

This lovely farmstead is a window into the storied history of turn-of-the-last-century Bedminster, when New York City bankers and business magnates established country estates and weekend retreats for their families. Drawn to the area by its exceptional beauty of pristine rolling hills and dales, its genteel lifestyle of sporting and equestrian activities, and its easy access to the city, Bedminster and surrounding towns became a magnet for well-heeled city dwellers.

The 83-acre property sits on a hilltop commanding long views of the countryside. The classic colonial estate home, guest house, barn and stables, pool and tennis court are all surrounded by the fenced pastures and towering trees that gave it its original name of Elm Pastures. Completely equipped for farming and equestrian pursuits, the vast majority of the estate is farm assessed.

Built around 1900, the main stucco-faced home occupies pride of place on the property, surrounded by acres of lush lawns. Historical architectural details abound, including a classic Dutch entrance door, gable dormer windows, several beamed ceilings, and period moldings. A screened porch with herringbone-patterned brick flooring, a wood fire-warmed sunroom, and a butler’s pantry are reminders of a by-gone era. All six bedrooms exude the charm of yesteryear, with hardwood floors and plenty of light streaming through the windows, many of which are traditional six-over-six double hung style. A fieldstone porch and a large bluestone terrace offer options for enjoying the distant views of fields and forests.

Updated in 2013, the four-bedroom guest cottage envisages usage for long-stay guests. Hardwood floors, two fireplaces, and a three-car garage are among its many amenities. This spacious cottage has an office, a fieldstone patio, and a screened-in porch.

Built in the classic style of banked barns, the magnificent red gambrel-roofed barn houses a two-bedroom caretaker’s apartment in addition to a tractor garage, heated woodshop, paint shop, equipment garage, and workshop—all the requirements for a modern haying/farming operation.

Fully equipped for the horse and animal lover, the four-stall stable includes a feed room, tack room, wash room, and three pens. Antique brass fittings are a nod to the property’s elegant history. Fenced pastures, a kennel, run-in shed, and even a skeet house for the enthusiast round out this wonderful estate farm, which does not carry land preservation restrictions.
