Introduction

Styled as a collection of vintage farm buildings, this exceptional home with pastoral views was fashioned by Keith Hone, AIA, to blend seamlessly into the historic Oldwick village countryside in a bucolic, retreat-like setting nestled between a large private estate and over 180 acres of preserved land. Exposed post-and-beam construction references the regional vernacular architecture and large picture windows connect the inside spaces to outside spaces including breathtaking 360-degree views as well as near views over perennial gardens, hayfields, and the home’s landscaped in-ground lap pool landscaped with perennial grasses. Architecturally-distinctive and elegant in its simplicity, the home has a flexible, open floorplan suitable for different living arrangements. In addition to two bedrooms on the second floor each with its own en suite bathroom, as life evolves in the home, different living arrangements can be found for the first floor bedroom with en suite bathroom, an unfinished basement suitable for use as a workshop or, if finished, for more living space, and a carriage house (styled as a silo and also serving as the poolhouse) with full bathroom, 2 finished rooms and a storage attic. Currently farm assessed (hay production) to keep taxes low. Easy access to NYC makes the home perfect as a second home or for anyone requiring access to commuting roads.

Area

The property offers its owners solitude within a community that supports an upscale lifestyle. It is located on a highly-desirable country road in Tewksbury Township surrounded by large estates and farms, and is one hour’s drive from New York City. Tewksbury is one of the most prestigious areas of Hunterdon County and a town renowned for its natural beauty, private estates, and upscale lifestyle marked by the popularity of equestrian sports supported by the nearby Essex Hunt Club, United States Equestrian Team Foundation, and private polo fields within the township. It is convenient to shopping, golf courses and country clubs (Hamilton Farm, Trump National, Fiddler’s Elbow, Roxiticus Golf Club), commuter highways (Interstate 78 and 287), NJ Transit trains and TransBridge Lines buses to New York City, and airports including Newark Liberty International Airport and smaller regional airports (Morristown Airport, Solberg Airport, Somerset Airport). The property is near private schools (Willow School, Pingry, Gill-St. Bernard’s) and is served by Tewksbury Elementary School, Old Turnpike Middle School, and Voorhees High School.
