Timberfield, the personal home of world-renowned publisher Malcolm Forbes, is now on the market for the first time in over 60 years. Mr. Forbes owned many other properties all around the globe, but he cherished Timberfield as his family home and chose to raise his five children here. The oldest section of the house dates back to approximately 1760 with additions in the 1860s and again in the 1920s. The Forbes family purchased the property in 1950, and in 1961 they built the bomb shelter, renovated the kitchen, and added the pool. Timberfield was the site of many lavish parties throughout the years, where the Forbes family hosted international celebrities and dignitaries. This 24.5± acre property is located in the heart of Essex Hunt Country, close to major highways, trains, restaurants and sporting events. It is approximately 30 minutes from Newark Liberty International Airport. Timberfield is alternately available on 34± acres at $4,250,000.

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.
