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 beautiful 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. An impressive library features custom cypress cabinetry and shelving. 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. 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 white 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 full bathroom, 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, 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 room and wash stall.
