Bedminster Twp. NJ

5 beds | 5.1 baths | 23.13 Acres | MLS/ID#: 3432129


An enduring sense of history pervades Middlebrook Farm, a fine estate in the heart of Bedminster Hunt Country. What began as a chauffer’s cottage for the Crossfields estate in 1929 was enlarged and altered in the 1950s into an impressive home in its own right. Today, this center hall Colonial is situated on over 23 open and wooded acres of sublime privacy. Additional alterations and additions in the 2000s enhanced this traditional home even further, resulting in a true architectural masterwork.

Highlights of the gracious five bedroom, five-and-one-half bath layout include hardwood floors, five fireplaces, detailed moldings, custom built-ins and character-filled gathering spaces. For instance, when the original drawing room wing of Crossfields was removed to conserve heating costs, it was re-imagined in Middlebrook Farm’s elegant living room crowned by Crossfields’ stunning fireplace surround. Welcoming rooms invite grand or intimate entertaining in the dining room opening to a secret garden, fireside library, en suite den, sun-splashed garden room, and a modern chef’s kitchen. An intimate bar is cleverly tucked off the main hallway, as is the powder room. Upstairs, a master suite contains a balcony, fireplace, dressing room and dual master baths.

Among the outdoor amenities are a huge brick terrace bordered by flowering shrubs and perennials, an inviting guest cottage, a four-stall horse barn with tack room and hayloft, and a roomy equipment shed. This hidden gem is farmland assessed from hay fields on the acreage. Bedminster Township is celebrated for its gilded era estates, equestrian hunts and gently rolling countryside. Fine dining and shopping, excellent schools and outstanding sporting facilities are nearby, including Hamilton Farm and Trump National Golf Clubs. Located approximately an hour from Manhattan and a 40-minute drive from Newark International Airport, Middlebrook Farm’s Somerset County location is convenient to Interstates 287 and 78 as well as Routes 202 and 206.

Middlebrook Farm's primary residence, the former chauffeur's cottage of "Crossfields" was enlarged & altered in 1957 as a residence for "Crossfields" owners.The original drawing room wing of "Crossfields" was taken down & much of it reimagined in the living room of Middlebrook's main residence. Additional alternations/addition in about 2000 & in mid 2000s. (P. 455 of NJ Country Houses, The Somerset Hills Vol. 2). The spacious DR, library, den, country kitchen & garden room offer a wealth of inviting spaces. The secret garden & handsome terrace are bordered with flowering trees, shrubs & perennials. A gem!

Bedminster Township, NJ real estate market

Homes for sale in Bedminster Township sit upon 26 square miles of charming hamlets with antique homes, expansive equestrian estates, lavish town houses, and rolling farmland in the heart of Somerset County's legendary hunt country. This quiet area experienced unprecedented growth during the 1980s when The Hills, a master planned community east of Route 287, opened its doors and the population soared from 2,500 to 8,000-plus residents today. Yet much of the Township retains its peaceful feeling; many unpaved lanes are ideal for bicyclists, horseback riders, hikers, and dog walkers.
