50 Hidden Valley Road,
Far Hills Boro NJ

10 Acres | MLS/ID#: 9010087


It would be hard to imagine a more spectacular home setting in the Somerset Hills as this picturesque ten-acre parcel situated on a tranquil cul de sac in Far Hills. Located in an estate section with ten-acre minimum zoning, the land offers a stunning combination of open green lawns, windswept fields and leafy woodlands. Approached by a long entrance drive, the existing home on the acreage can be updated by the future owners, or a new home can be built on the same or different site.  Several options exist for a new residence, which can be oriented to overlook a bucolic stream, dense forests or an open and treed setting. Lending an additional feeling of serenity are approximately 40 acres of adjacent land deeded to the New Jersey Conservancy Foundation. 

Those seeking new construction can review a set of house plans, paperwork from the town granting building approvals for a home and permission for a new driveway. Two wells on the property further enhance the design capabilities of a brand new residence.

Currently part of this magnificent setting is a custom home built in 1970 and offered “as is.” Finished in wood shingles and clapboard, the timeless architecture includes a ten-room floor plan with four bedrooms, five full baths, a powder room and an attached two-car garage. The main level is entered by transom-topped front door opening to a slate-floored foyer detailed with classic millwork and graceful rounded ceilings. A wide, arched opening reveals the living and dining room combination, where parquet wood flooring, a high tray ceiling, fireplace flanked by built-ins, oversized windows framing wooded views and recessed lights are delightful design elements. The sun-filled country kitchen is arranged with a roomy center island, upgraded stainless steel appliances, white cabinetry and breakfast bar seating. Spacious bedrooms include an expansive master bedroom with carpeting, crown moldings and neutral décor.

Stairs in the foyer descend to a walkout, full daylight ground level containing a kitchenette, full bath and living space, an ideal starting point for a potential apartment. Views from this level overlook velvety lawns, towering trees and meandering stone walls winding past established perennials. Home systems include baseboard hot water oil-fired heat, air conditioning, two wells and private septic. 

Whether the next buyer chooses to upgrade the existing home or create an elegant new dwelling, this property offers a rare opportunity to live on one of the most-coveted parts of the state. Far Hills in Somerset County is known for its gracious estates, access to New York-bound train service, proximity to local and interstate highways, world class golf and country clubs, fine equestrian facilities and a relaxed yet sophisticated lifestyle.
