About This Old House

A rare opportunity to own a piece of history – the landmark Beattystown Stone Mill, c. 1750. Completely redesigned, reconstructed and renovated in the 1980s by Yale architect owner Charles Buckley, this original stone grain mill is set above the Musconetcong River in bucolic Mansfield, Warren County, approximately 50 minutes outside of Manhattan, approximately 10 minutes from Route 80 and about 10 minutes to the local college, Centenary University.

This unique home with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms offers approximately 6,000 sq ft of open concept, loft style living space with soaring spaces, massive exposed hewn beams, stone walls, an entire wall of glass, wide board flooring, original wide plank steps, structural and sculptural beams, with over 1500 feet of river frontage. The first floor features a huge eat-in kitchen with terra cotta tile, granite counters and stainless-steel appliances, a formal dining room, a sitting area with fireplace, and a laundry room. The millrace, which originally powered the gristmill’s grinding stone, still flows under what is now the living room on the lower level, dramatically visible through an arched stone window. This level features 2-story ceilings, a massive fireplace, a powder room, and an expansive pub/recreation/media room.

The second floor offers a library with floor-to-ceiling custom bookshelves, 3 bedrooms, and a large full bathroom. Up another flight is an enormous studio area, currently in use as a museum displaying artifacts of the period. This level also accommodates a dressing room and a sumptuous master bath with stall shower and soaking tub. Farther up still is the master bedroom, flanked on one side by a spacious office or exercise room, and on the other a suspended balcony deck affording a magnificent view of the river and surrounding countryside.
Sparing no details or amenities, the mill is ideally situated to take advantage of the sun’s rays almost every day of the year. Here’s a unique opportunity to experience the rich history of this landmark property with all the comforts of a contemporary lifestyle.
