Meadowbrook Farm - 124 stunning acres, 10,000' barn, 9000' residence, pool & pond
Tewksbury, Hunterdon County, New Jersey
Refined, Timeless and Private
A working farm since the 1700s, Meadowbrook Farm is completely surrounded by sheltered privacy and serene beauty. It represents a rare offering on 124 farm-assessed acres just outside the historic village of Oldwick in Tewksbury Township. Bucolic views of the distant Hunterdon Hills, rolling land, open fields, a spring-fed pond and leafy forests characterize the verdant acreage. Custom-built by the present owners in 2012, the residence at the heart of Meadowbrook Farm is a replica of the original farmhouse; the architecture presents graceful symmetry which combines classic and modern design using clean lines. Inside, an airy 14-room layout is filled with natural light amid peaceful vistas of the serene property and pool complex. Dependencies include a 10,000± square-foot multi-use barn featuring radiant heat and air conditioning as well as additional storage buildings.
The current owners have created a welcoming one-of-a-kind home characterized by captivating gathering spaces and magnificent outlooks of natural beauty with privacy and tranquility. An expansive 9,000 square-foot layout contains five bedrooms, seven full baths and a powder room.
Highlights of the open floor plan include wide plank cypress flooring, three wood-burning fireplaces, high ceilings, a three-stop elevator, custom Pella windows, radiant heated floors, intricate trim, handsome custom built-ins, cabinetry, moldings and woodwork.
Well-designed principal rooms are ideal venues for entertaining and everyday living. A coffered ceiling living room is anchored by a fireplace detailed with the farmhouse’s original antique pine mantle, creating a handsome focal point flanked by custom built-ins. In the fireside dining room, a dramatic window wall frames outlooks of the sparkling pond and sweeping fields. Another convivial area is the chef’s kitchen and family room. The unique Z-shaped center island easily supports prep work and casual seating, while design elements such as Netuno Bordeaux granite countertops, custom white cabinetry and upper-end paneled appliances from Miele, Liebherr and Sub-Zero are sublime details. An impressive library features custom cypress cabinetry and shelving.
Upstairs, a sophisticated master retreat is comprised of a spacious, sunlit bedroom clad in pale tones of ivory and white, dual walk-in closets fitted with California Closets wardrobe organizers, a spa-inspired master bath offering sparkling white Cancalla marble accents, a hydrotherapy tub, clear glass steam shower and marble-topped double sink vanity. Three more generously-sized en suite bedrooms connect to private Cancalla marble baths. The third level has a bedroom, oversized full hallway bath, home office and gym or media room as well as a large storage area that can be finished for additional square-footage. Casual get-togethers are accommodated in the lower level’s sizeable recreation room featuring a built-in media center. This level is completed by a powder room, workshop and storage areas.
Outside, a covered bluestone porch overlooks the swimming pool and offers built-in cypress cabinetry with a grill and refrigerator, plus automatic screens. Colorful gardens and manicured grounds are viewed from the lovely Indiana gray limestone pool terrace. An outdoor shower and
full bath/changing room incorporating the same blue hues of the pool in its glass tiles are thoughtful poolside features for warm weather entertaining. The attached four-car garage offers heat, air conditioning, a dog shower and storage attic with potential for finished living space.
Finished in Hardie plank siding, the classic red barn has areas for hay storage, farm machinery, a machine workshop, antique auto and tractor collections, as well as six horse stalls, a tack stall and wash stall. There is also an option for a future second story apartment in the barn. Additional outbuildings house farm equipment, and fenced pastures support equestrian activities.

Situated just a half-mile from Oldwick village, 35 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport and 48 miles from Manhattan, this special offering is available through the Far Hills Office of Turpin Realtors.
