Home buyers who appreciate a sense of history will be enchanted by Middle Brook Farm, the original chauffeur’s cottage that once served the stately Crossfields estate. Middle Brook Farm was mentioned in Jack Turpin’s noteworthy book: New Jersey Country Houses, The Somerset Hills, Volume 2, in the section about Crossfields. It details how when the drawing room wing was removed from the estate, many of the interior features were saved and integrated into the living room at Middle Brook Farm, including the impressive fireplace surround which still remains. Verdant acreage includes a secret garden accessed from the dining room, lush perennials, flowering trees, mature woodlands and wide expanses of green lawns.
While it may have started as a ‘cottage’ when it was built in 1929, today this refined estate property is set on over 23 acres and includes a four-stall horse barn, guest cottage and stately 10-room residence with six bedrooms, five full baths and a powder room. Additions and renovations over the years include recent upgrades made in the 2000s. This architecturally-nuanced Colonial gets its name from Middle Brook, the stream that gently meanders through the property’s borders.
Highlights of the main home’s layout include expansive gathering spaces, hardwood floors, built-ins, five fireplaces, an updated country kitchen and a grand master suite with two baths. A one-bedroom guest cottage is perfect for staff or multi-generational living.
Centrally located near Hamilton Farm and Trump National Golf Clubs, Middlebrook Farm is close to local and interstate highways, schools, shops, restaurants and recreational opportunities.
