Description

Flora Danica Farm, a nearly 10-acre gated horse property, embodies an aesthetic rooted in the timeless appeal of a Cotswold country house. While the home is a manageable size it has grand features such as its dramatic commanding roof line and soaring interior spaces. The genre is revealed through extensive use of natural materials, often with exposed wooden beams, natural stone work, and reclaimed brick flooring.

Connected to nature, sunlight streams in through oversized windows capturing pastoral views. Warmly-hued red oak floors, exposed stone walls, a brick-floored kitchen and handsome wood-burning fireplaces imbue the home with character and graciousness. A rambling floor plan includes versatile spaces for many pursuits. Abundant closet space is a bonus in this appealing home.

A winding drive leads past the gated keypad entry of this turn-key horse farm to the home site.  Inside, the two-story central hall entrance connects to each of the principal rooms. Adjoining this entry is a cathedral living room with wood-burning fireplace, the formal dining room, the first floor master bedroom wing and a large, well-equipped kitchen.

Highlights of the heart-of-the-home kitchen include a deep stone fireplace with special heating features, warm brick floors, stone walls and a Garland commercial range with six full-size burners, two full ovens, and a large griddle/broiler. A stone-walled screened porch for cool mornings and breezy evenings connects to the kitchen. This space overlooks horse pastures, lovely garden plantings and a koi pond. Behind the kitchen are a utility wing and second staircase to two bedrooms, a large and bright walk-in closet, and a full bath. 

The front staircase ascends to two additional bedrooms and another bath. For those seeking a balance of public rooms and private bedroom suites, this floor plan is ideal.  Multi-generational use is another option in the flexible layout.

The current owners have upgraded and polished the entire property. It is also up to date with modern technology features like underground Ethernet cables serving the house, gate, and stable complex. Camera surveillance is also in place in the stable, and the generator has been recently upgraded and replaced.

Picturesque grounds show pride of ownership. A six-stall stable includes a 600-square-foot apartment with patio and koi pond, a wash stall and separate feed and tack rooms. Behind the barn is a three-sided multi-bay outbuilding for equipment storage. A nearby outdoor dressage ring and an insulated indoor riding arena are attached to the barn. 

An unusual feature at the stable complex is a charmingly intimate courtyard-like space with pergola and equipped with a grill ready for impromptu dinners or a casual place to relax. Nearby is a chicken house and enclosure for fresh eggs, a separate sheep house, and enclosed fruit orchard with apples, cherries, pears, and peaches. Sweeping pastures support horse activities. Two separate and fenced gardens are planted with specimens for cut flowers and vegetables in raised beds.

The setting at Flora Danica Farm is exquisitely landscaped with a harmonious balance of sweeping lawns, tall trees and flowering plants.

Tewksbury in Hunterdon County is well-regarded for its Blue Ribbon schools, nearby world class golf facilities, outstanding fishing at Ken Lockwood Gorge, abundant parkland including Christie Hoffman Park, Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary and Willowwood Arboretum, as well as dedicated hiking trails, the Tewksbury Trail System for horseback riding, outdoor recreation, and numerous cultural events nearby. Commuters are close to I-78, mass transit options and corporate campuses in the region as well as Newark Liberty International Airport and easy access to New York City.
