QUINTESSENTIAL 1790s STONE FARMHOUSE ON 16+ FARM ASSESSED ACRES\\n\\nVintage and modern design elements combine in a circa 1790’s antique stone and clapboard farmhouse on 16.4± acres in Tewksbury Township. Farm-assessed acreage overlooking pastoral countryside views contains fenced pastures, a pond, several barns and farm buildings. Centrally located about 10 miles from Interstate 78, the updated, approximate 4,100 square-foot home offers four bedrooms and four full baths. Outbuildings include a stunning three-story post and beam barn with 2013 standing seam metal roof, an equipment barn with four deep bays, and extra-deep carriage house featuring a one-car garage, wood shed and roomy one-stall run-in barn.\\n\\nGracious interior appointments such as wide plank and random width pumpkin pine floors, marble tile floors, five fireplaces, exposed stone walls, rustic beamed ceilings, crown moldings, deep-set windows, French doors, a rear staircase enclosed by a Dutch door, eat-in country kitchen with upscale appliances and a sunlit master suite arranged with a sitting room and fireplace are sure to delight. The classic stone and clapboard façade is enhanced by a cedar shake roof. Approached by a long, tree-lined drive, manicured grounds are elegantly landscaped to maximize privacy.\\n\\nA paver front walkway with bluestone medallion and set of stone steps leads to the recessed front door. Inside, the main staircase is flanked by the dining room to the left and family room to the right. Currently used as a living room, the dining room presents a dramatic wide stone-wall walk-in fireplace original to the home. Other details include exposed wood beam ceilings, built-in cupboards, wide plank pumpkin pine floors, deep-set windows and access to the kitchen’s bright and airy breakfast room. Entered through an arched doorway, the inviting family room is centered by a concrete fireplace and also contains deep-set windows and wide plank pumpkin pine floors. At the rear of the home, sunlight streams into an atrium with marble tile floors and double French doors opening to the bluestone patio. A hallway just off the atrium leads to an updated full bath and laundry room. \\n\\nDrenched in sunlight, the enclosed conservatory has colorful slate flooring, built-in bookcases and cupboards, a stone-walled fireplace with wood stove insert, and French doors to the rear patio or service entrance. A Dutch door in this room reveals a hidden staircase up to a lofted bedroom with vaulted ceilings and Berber carpeting.\\n\\nFrench doors in the conservatory connect to a country kitchen filled with stylish contemporary and antique details. White-washed oak cabinetry, Corian countertops, a peninsula breakfast bar with stools, recessed and track lighting are complemented by upper-end appliances such as the stainless steel Viking four-burner cooktop, Bosch dishwasher, Magic Chef microwave and oak-paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator. Marble tile floors in the kitchen extend to the adjacent breakfast room featuring a full exposed stone wall, custom-painted tray ceiling, wrought iron chandelier and wall sconces.\\n\\nAnother exceptional part of this home is the first floor in-law suite offering a living room with oak floors and a bay window, a fully-equipped kitchen with pass-through to the living room, a bedroom currently used as an exercise studio, and a full bath. This suite can be accessed from the home’s interior or from a private exterior entrance.\\n\\nUpstairs, a master suite of rooms begins in the sunny master bedroom designed with cathedral and exposed beam ceilings, random length pine floors, a partial stone wall, lighted ceiling fan, wall sconces and a double door closet. A stone-walled wood-burning fireplace in the master sitting room is a striking focal point, while pine floors and deep-set windows are additional amenities. The master bath lined in bead board walls has a pedestal sink, oak flooring, exposed wood beam and tongue-in-groove wood ceilings, and a tiled shower with a seat and hand-held spray. Another upstairs bedroom adjoins a private sitting room with a fireplace. This bedroom is served by a hallway bath providing a hand-painted oval sink, bead board and tile framed soaking tub, exposed wood beam and tongue-in-groove wood ceilings, pine floors and deep-set windows. \\n\\nCompleting the layout are a partial basement and walkup attic for storage needs. Outdoors, a pond and stream on the property are right in keeping with the rural feel of this working farm. Dependencies include a three-story post and beam barn with newer 2013 standing seam metal roof, an equipment barn with four deep bays, an extra-deep carriage house with an attached one-car garage and wood shed roomy enough to hold four cords of wood, and a one-stall run-in barn. The property also contains two fenced paddocks, a separate well for livestock, a 15-zone underground irrigation system and 10 of the acres of fenced pastures providing water service.\\n\\nMechanical workings of the home include eight zones of natural gas hot water baseboard heat, two zones of radiant hot water heat, two zones of central air conditioning, well water with water neutralizer, softener and carbon filter system, gravity-fed septic and two gas-fired hot water heaters. Beautifully maintained and updated, this inviting farmhouse is a rare country property.\\n\\nTewksbury Township in Hunterdon County offers a small-town lifestyle near a network of local and interstate highways for easy access to Manhattan or local business campuses.
