Description

Green Acres Farm, Tewksbury NJ

A long, tree-lined gravel drive leads to a classic country home overlooking green pastures and a stocked pond. This equestrian property consists of 15.72 beautiful acres with open fields, expansive lawns and colorful gardens surrounding a classic country house. Custom-built of white brick, the home has a distinctive northern European sensibility. Fenced horse pastures, a riding ring, and tree-lined perimeters take in lovely pastoral views.  As a bonus, this property is close to the extensive Tewksbury Trail System which meanders through the countryside for miles of off-road horseback riding. 

The English-inspired walking garden and pool house are screened from the home by a lush 12-foot privet hedge. Pea stone walkways lead through an arched gateway, dripping with roses, to the Williamsburg-style pool house designed by noted architect, Ed O’Brian. This elegant three season structure overlooks the pool and a bluestone patio covered by a natural canopy of wisteria. The pool house offers a timbered ceiling, full kitchen, full bath, living room with stone fireplace and a sleeping loft. The charming pergola is the perfect place for summer dining, while a built-in stainless steel grill makes poolside entertaining a breeze.  

Well-established plantings define various outdoor rooms surrounding the home. There are generous parking areas around the six-stall stable and the garage apartment building. The property consists of several outbuildings, including a large pole barn for storage, a chicken coop, four run-in sheds and a separate fenced organic vegetable garden, which also contains a berry patch and is surrounded by fruit trees. 

Streamlined yet sophisticated, this home has a youthful, chic feel.  It has the look and feel of a vintage-styled farmhouse that has been updated and expanded through the years. Highlights include two wood-burning fireplaces, a refurbished kitchen, richly-hued wood floors, French doors, bonus spaces on the second floor and an office. 

The traditional floor plan provides a center hall, a double living room with fireplace, a dining room with fireplace, a sun room with three walls of long windows adjoining the bluestone terrace overlooking the pond, green lawns and fenced pastures. Also noteworthy is a large, well-appointed mudroom off the kitchen where the rear staircase is located, plus a half bath serving the first floor. 

The second floor has three main bedrooms, two updated full baths, and a pass-through lounging-sitting room-office leading to two bonus guest rooms. The laundry room and rear staircase are tucked off the back hallway.

There is an attached two-car garage and a detached two-car garage with a spacious three-room apartment upstairs. The finished basement is walkout and provides extra recreational space. 

A six-stall, center aisle horse barn, fenced riding ring, and various run-in sheds facilitate equestrian activities, while the pool house with kitchen and loft provides welcoming seasonal guest quarters. All of these amenities, including ample acreage for horses or ATV off-road riding, and a stocked pond on the secluded park-like grounds, offer solace from the busy outside world and provide a playground and haven for those looking for an active yet peaceful lifestyle.

Tewksbury Township in Hunterdon County is well-regarded for its Blue Ribbon schools, world class golf facilities, outstanding fishing at Ken Lockwood Gorge, abundant parkland including Christie Hoffman Park, Whittemore Wildlife Sanctuary and Willowood Arboretum, as well as dedicated hiking trails, the Tewksbury Trail System for horseback riding, outdoor recreation, the historic town of Oldwick and numerous cultural events nearby.
