Pastoral Beauty and Inspired Design, A Harmonious Pairing in Asbury

Every age appears to have its crusades. In the late Victorian period, industrialized England saw the rise of the Arts and Crafts movement. As modern machines replaced workers, Arts and Crafts advocates sought to revalue beautiful and fine workmanship. Simple lines, natural materials such as wood and stone and honest construction were the aspirations of Arts and Crafts. The movement sparked a revolutionary shift in American architecture. 

Built in 1979 on 2+ rolling acres, this offering was reimagined by new owners in 2004. Arts and Crafts design provided a timeless enhancement. Poised on a rise of the land, among trees stretching to the sky and a warbling clear-water stream, the harmony of design and setting is profound. 

The stone driveway winds to perfectly rail-tie boxed bluestone stepping stairs rising to the cedar-clad home’s portico. The eye goes to its sleek, walnut, custom crafted columns and walnut, bowed-iron railing. Indoors, the floors are oak, lighting is Tiffany style, track or recessed, banks of Andersen windows generously pass light to the interior’s nature-inspired pastel palette. 

In the living room a stone fireplace rises to the double-height ceiling and second level loft. French doors open to the dining room. The family room with cathedral ceiling and skylight is wholly open to the kitchen, the latter aglow with the warm tones of maple cabinetry. The granite-topped island comes with breakfast bar and the chef will love the well-chosen appliances. The main level also features a bedroom, optional office/bedroom, and bath handsomely clad in crafted Tiger Walnut wainscoting. 

Another walnut, bowed-iron staircase, now presented on a grander scale, provides transport to the upper level. A second office follows the open, airy loft. The master suite hosts fitted closets and the bath granite and Travertine surfaces, a pampering soaking tub and steam shower. A raised/slanted oak-plank ceiling crowns the second bedroom also en suite with bath.  On the home’s lower, Amtico wood-inspired flooring bestows a polished touch to the sizeable recreation room. 

Asbury in Bethlehem Township, Hunterdon County is a picturesque, pastoral community convenient to Route 78 for speedy access to both New York City and Philadelphia. Nearby are a variety of shopping, dining and transportation options. Also, within 3 miles is Spruce Run.

Bethlehem Township, New Jersey real estate market

About Bethlehem Township

Driving through the winding country roads of Bethlehem Township, sweeping panoramas offer viewpoints not normally associated with New Jersey. Established family farms, leafy woodlands and rural views are punctuated by antique homes, red barns, old mills and newer neighborhoods of luxury homes. Remaining true to its agricultural heritage, the township has amassed many acres of preserved farmland and open space which support local farming and recreational activities as well as the pastoral vistas.


Measuring about 20 square miles with just under 4,000 residents, Bethlehem is bordered by Alexandria, Bloomsbury, Franklin, Kingwood, Holland and the Musconetcong River. Within the township are smaller communities such as Charlestown, Jugtown, Ludlow, Polktown, Swinesburg, Valley and West Portal.
