Just an hour from Manhattan in the heart of the rolling hills of Somerset County, discover Hopeland Farm. This 27-acre country property includes a renovated 1800’s farmhouse, pool with pool house, 6-stall stable, tack room, caretaker or guest cottage, garages, and workshop. Additionally, there is a potentially buildable lot on the property. Imagine vegetables and flowers from your organic garden, honey from your beehives, fresh eggs from the chickens. Walk the woodland trails and discover a new sense of tranquility rarely found today.
The whole-house renovation, done by Bernardsville’s renowned Brandes Maselli Architects, transformed the interior while retaining its Early American sensibility. Original details such as wide plank floors and carefully renovated hardware complement the new windows, appliances, fully updated marble baths and a well appointed kitchen. Additionally, the home has a new roof, a whole-house generator and all-new heating and cooling systems.
Truly inviting, this farmhouse offers hardwood flooring throughout, three wood-burning fireplaces, custom built-ins and neutral paint colors. On the first floor, the eat-in kitchen opens onto a comfortable family room. Special occasion spaces include a spacious dining room with butler’s pantry, living room and a private den or home office. The four-season porch is a cozy space offering the same bluestone flooring as the convenient mudroom.
Upstairs, the master bedroom offers a fireplace and across the hall is the master bath with walk-in closet. There are two more comfortably sized bedrooms on this level, one of which has an ensuite bathroom. At the end of the hall, the two back bedrooms are small and would be ideal office or studio space. There are two additional updated full baths on this level, as well as a laundry room.
This unique property is 30 minutes from Morristown's private airport, 45 minutes from Teterboro and Newark Airports, with easy access to highways 78 and 287, and local train stations. This is a must see for someone looking for that perfect weekend haven or full-time property!
