Newton, Sussex County, New Jersey
A winding country road brings you to this horse property on almost 5 acres, within walking distance of the "Old Town Center". The 7 stall barn still stands, however the horses and fencing are long gone. The site of the barn was carefully chosen, built into the river bank, close to the pond with a hay loft above, and the stalls below, there are 2 wells on the property. Offered for the first time, this home was built for his bride in 1971, set on a beautiful piece of land bordered by 1,154' of the Paulinskill River. Long and low from the street, this ranch is also built into the hillside, providing a walkout basement on the river side. As you enter the dramatic 22' Sun Room you will find sun light streaming through the wall of windows overlooking the property. The Sun Room leads to the 27' Great Room with a massive stone fireplace stretching along one wall and a handsome flagstone floor, both built by Lawrence Earl. The dining table is arranged in front of the crackling fire, perfect for large celebrations, with French doors leading to the Kitchen and a pair of sliding doors leading to the deck. This deck overlooks the 72 acre Camp Nejeda just across the river, surrounded by unspoiled natural beauty. There is a second brick fireplace which warms the Living Room. The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, with hardwood floors and comfortable central air installed in 2010. A car collectors dream, there is a " clear span" 3 car garage with plenty of space to restore or display your collection. Enjoy sunsets form the gazebo overlooking the river, an ideal place to end a perfect day. This is your escape from the city, the retreat you have been dreaming of, with walking distance to the Blue Ribbon Elementary School.
