It would be hard to conjure up anything as delightful as the pastoral scenery surrounding Grosvenor House in the Lamington section of Bedminster. Sited on gently rolling property with a distant view of the Lamington church steeple, the 2.32± acre setting is enhanced by tall shade trees, shrubbery, stone walls, established perennial gardens, and a stream edging one border.
Poised to take in stunning sunset views, natural light streams into the home throughout the day. Preserved land consisting of a rustic farm field alongside the acreage is another scenic aspect of this remarkable listing, which is in Lamington’s historic village and near the old-fashioned country store.
Well maintained by the present owners, Grosvenor House is a classic Colonial offering four, possibly five, bedrooms and three-and-one-half baths. Originally built in 1860, it has been thoughtfully updated using period design elements, while a bright, airy addition presents a seamless transition. Wheelchair access and the elevator serving each level are further amenities.
Highlights of the interior include detailed moldings, two fireplaces with stunning mantels, custom built-ins, a three-stop elevator, and oversized windows framing lovely views. Gathering spaces like the formal living room, fireside sitting room, library, and galley kitchen are on the main floor. This level also contains a two-room master suite, while three more bedrooms are located on the second story. There is a lower level in-law suite featuring a private entrance, fully-equipped kitchen, family room, bedroom and full bath, providing a desirable multi-generational living option.
Outside, bluestone and brick patios open from the main and lower levels. Dependencies include a two-car garage and barn building with parking, a cupola-topped potting shed, a three-box stall stable with electric and water, a wash stall, tack room, and fly spray system. A fenced paddock, riding ring, and turn out shed complete the equestrian amenities.
This charming Colonial’s Bedminster location in the heart of Somerset County offers low taxes, fine schools and close proximity to I-287 and I-78 for commuters.
