Imagine living in an artfully-crafted and architect-designed home that was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Fallingwater. Such an inventive home is newly available right here in New Jersey’s bucolic Tewksbury Township. Brook House spans the banks of the Hollow Brook, with a glassed-in living room built directly above a native trout-filled tributary of the Black River. This unforgettable home could not be recreated today and offers a fascinating and truly relaxing lifestyle. A sublime midcentury modern design, it is situated on five verdant acres in Tewksbury Township, where it is surrounded by the natural beauty of rolling hills, preserved green space, horse farms and a network of biking trails. Gentle water sounds provide a sense of tranquility and peacefulness to this innovative contemporary throughout the day.
Local architect Charles Porter designed this modern home with dazzling waterfall and brook views for his family in 1956. Of particular interest are outlooks from the living room, where windows frame views of the water moving both toward and away from the home. Thoughtful renovations maintained the fluid inner spaces that are right in keeping with Wright’s philosophy. A dramatic four-plus bedroom, four full bath layout features open, interactive spaces for entertaining and everyday living, two stone fireplaces (wood-burning in the living room and gas in the kitchen), original wood floors, exposed stone work and floor-to-ceiling window walls capturing exceptional panoramas of woodlands and water.
The living room, family room and kitchen connect to an expansive deck set above the brook amid sounds of the tumbling waterfalls. The property incorporates pebbled pathways winding past a variety of specimen trees and native plants, enhancing this fascinating property.
