Magic Hollow Farm
Imagine a self-contained, private, idyllic property with everything you ever dreamed of having for yourself, your family and horses, all within 72 miles of the George Washington Bridge. This 88+ acre farm is ideally located by the border of Sussex County, NJ and Orange County, NY. The 4200 sq. ft. home is perfect for living and entertaining with a large 3 story great room which was built in 1992. The central feature of the great room is a large floor to ceiling stone fireplace. The stonework in the home was built using stone harvested from the stone walls meandering through the property, including the stone foundation laid up in 1829 for the original house. There are 3 fireplaces and a wood burning stove in the house.
The property boasts a barn with 3 stalls on the ground level with plenty of room for hay storage, a building with another stall and lovely tack room, an indoor and outdoor riding arena, and a shed for the tractor and other equipment. There is a spring fed pond with a 1 room cabin. The rustic cabin boasts a kitchen, bathroom with shower, a screened porch and a deck which overlooks the pond. Other natural features include 2 streams and 2 artesian wells.
Wild life abounds: deer, turkey, bear, fox, yellow tailed hawks, eagles! Opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding, hunting and fishing all at your fingertips. The beautiful trails which criss cross the property allow you to leave your home on horseback, and arrive in the lovely town of Milford, Pennsylvania eight miles away, never having had to use a roadway. Large tracts of State land surrounding the property allow exploration in many directions. The scenic Delaware River is 1 mile down the road and famous for its excellent canoeing, rafting, swimming and fishing.
The paddock in front of the stalls opens onto multiple fenced fields allowing horses to graze with access to natural running water. There are two riding arenas: indoor, 100 x 50 feet, and outdoor, 240 x 320 feet, suitable for holding competitions. A classic round pen adjoins these two arenas.
The fields are bordered by seemingly miles of stone walls, built by mounding field stone and blue slate. This stone has supplied some of the floors and the stone fireplaces in the residence.
The house itself has three bedrooms, three baths, central air, and the great room. There is a six person hot tub in the master bath that overlooks the back fields. A commercial Garland stove in the kitchen allows for ample meal preparation. The house is surrounded by a large cedar deck. A stone barbecue and stone fire pit make for great entertaining. The circa 1829 back porches remain intact.
While this property is totally isolated, it lies only three miles from the town of Matamoras, PA, with convenient access to shopping, trains to NY and NJ, the scenic upper Delaware River National Park, schools and Route 84. Stuart International Airport is less than one hour away. The GWB is 72 miles from the driveway. The property is registered in Clean and Green, (Agr-Act 319) providing lower taxes compared to NY or NJ.
