Valley View is an enchanting Prairie-style home personifying quintessential American style rooted in the Frank Lloyd Wright tradition.  It is sited on 65 rural acres to capture views across the Amwell Valley as far as the Sourland Mountain range.  Crafted in 2002, the timeless architecture is rooted in the earth and created to blend into the landscape. This design approach became popular in the early 20th century as American life evolved from a formal style with servants to more open floor plans which could easily be managed by a family.  Key elements of the Prairie style include “ribbons of windows,” often casements, and the extensive use of natural stone and exposed wood.

This distinctive home offers numerous amenities for modern living. The terrace invites outdoor entertaining and is also supported by a large multi purpose garden room for relaxing and casual dining.  Farm fields producing hay surround the home site. Distant southerly views seem endless, extending all the way to the Sourland Mountains.

Interior features include a dramatic entry hall with clerestory windows, a handsome stone fireplace in the main gathering room, high ceilings, exposed stone walls, wood floors and a stunning newly redesigned master bath.  Additionally, there is a master suite on each floor, and a cook's kitchen with center island and high-end appliances. Adjoining the kitchen is a large walk-in pantry and a fully equipped butler’s pantry. The floor plan provides an optimal flow while allowing for private spaces. Valley View exudes a warm, engaging quality amid its relaxing environment, a rarity in a home of this size.

Accessed by two staircases, the second story provides four bedrooms and three full baths. Other amenities include a whole house automatic generator, seven zones of heating, five zones of cooling, copper gutters and leaders.

A country lifestyle is enhanced by outbuildings on the acreage including a nine-stall barn with wash stall and tack room, an expansive machine storage barn, two run-in sheds, and a water line to the pasture. These dependencies can support equestrian interests, a car collection and a myriad of hobby farm uses.    East Amwell offers a sophisticated yet relaxed lifestyle in Hunterdon County near Princeton and Trenton with easy access to I-195 and Philadelphia. Open fields, farmland, and rural landscapes characterize this part of the state, which is also near recreational opportunities along the Delaware River as well as the noted Ridge At Back Brook golf course designed by Tom Fazio.

Those who appreciate fine craftsmanship and abundant views will appreciate the attention to detail displayed throughout Valley View Farm.
