PREVIOUSLY $7.25 MILLION… NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! History and exquisite craftsmanship combine at Stone Creek Farm, a 50-acre estate in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. Surrounded by 100 acres of protected Garden State land and bordered by the lovely Lockatong Creek, this idyllic farm has been lovingly maintained and updated since it was built in 1750, and is surrounded by the verdant hills, charming creeks, and picturesque towns that dot the countryside. Stone Creek Farm is a private and tranquil retreat that feels worlds away, yet is just over an hour from Philadelphia and convenient to Newark and New York City.
The grounds of the farm are lush, featuring a stocked pond with custom lining, cutting garden and a fruit orchard. Meticulously landscaped lawns and gardens boast bluestone terraces, and outdoor enjoyment is enhanced by a saltwater pool and spa as well as an all-weather tennis court. Gardeners can enjoy working in the existing rose garden, and chefs will delight in the herbs planted on the estate. Careful planning was put into the gardens to ensure that native plantings are in bloom throughout seasonal changes; indeed, the spring’s extensive bulb plantings are particularly pretty. The property is also woodland management farm assessed for tax purposes.
A grand country residence is the centerpiece of the multi-structure estate, with two wings extending from a beautiful, 18th century farmhouse. Attention to detail and appreciation for history are apparent in every room, from the heart of pine floors (rescued from a Georgia plantation) to the hand-hewn beams from New York’s Fraunces Tavern. Custom millwork, beaded pine paneling, stone walls and beamed ceilings all evoke a bygone era, but the home is thoroughly modern in its amenities: a fitness center, sauna, thousand-bottle wine cellar (temperature and humidity-controlled, of course) and luxe marble baths bring the residence into the twenty-first century. A guest wing, gourmet kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, cozy sunroom, great room, dining room, office and two lofts complete the main residence.
DELAWARE TOWNSHIP, NJ. One of America’s prettiest and most historic areas, the Delaware River Valley – which includes Delaware Township, Hunterdon County and Bucks County, Pennsylvania – offers a multitude of activities tailored to a wide variety of tastes. The lively river towns that dot the landscape include Lambertville, New Hope, Frenchtown, Stockton, and Washington Crossing, all of which offer vibrant culture, seasonal color, distinctive shopping, fine dining, galleries, and antiques. Residents enjoy historic surroundings and unparalleled natural beauty, spending the day on the river or driving along the New Jersey River Road (named one of the top ten scenic drives in the nation). Days can be lazy or adventure-filled.
Though rural in character, Stockton and Delaware Township are rich with culture and amenities highlighting the history and creativity of the region. Indeed, just minutes away is New Hope’s famed Bucks County Playhouse, a world-renowned theater housed in a Colonial-era grist mill. The building was rescued in the 1930s by a band of small band of New York artists, including Broadway playwright Moss Hart. For over 80 years it has hosted a veritable who’s who of American theatrical royalty, including Helen Hayes, George C. Scott, Colleen Dewhurst, and Robert Redford; today, faithful alums like Tyne Daly, Andrea McArdle and Angela Lansbury return to tread the boards, delighting local audiences.
HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ. Boasting over 400 square miles of natural beauty, Hunterdon County is sited within the beautiful Delaware River Valley. The first European settlers came in the early 1700s and built towns supported by the bounty of the land – trout and bass abound in the Delaware River (America Rivers’ 2020 River of the Year) while duck, deer, and quail provided sustenance for early denizens. Today, the county is decidedly more refined, and popular with equestrians and Manhattanites alike. It is home to the U.S. Equestrian team, as well as a number of important horse breeders including celebrated Arabian breeder Springwater Farms.
Located within an easy commute of both New York City and Philadelphia, Hunterdon County is popular with executives who prefer to live out of the urban sprawl; indeed, many residents join the 300,000 New Jerseyans who ride or drive into New York City for work each day. The county is also marked by its affluence, ranked 4th-highest median household income ($113,684) by the government’s 2016 American Community Survey, nearly $33,000 more each year than the New Jersey average. Residents enjoy an upscale lifestyle, beautiful natural surroundings, and a small-town atmosphere with big-city amenities in the municipalities that make up Hunterdon County.
