Riverside Equestrian Property on 65± Pastoral Acres An impressive equestrian property on approximately 65 farmland-assessed acres borders the Raritan River in Bedminster. The present owners installed numerous recent updates to refresh the classic three bedroom, two-and-one-half bath farmhouse using on-trend designer features and a modern yet traditional aesthetic. Upgrades were also made to the seven-stall barn with hay loft and fenced pastures served by new water service. Additionally, the vast acreage contains an outdoor riding ring and detached three-car garage. There are a variety of opportunities for recreational and agricultural use including hay and crop farming, horse or cattle grazing, horseback riding and driving ATVs on newly established trails, and fishing in the trout-filled river. Completely private with low annual taxes of under $16,000, the mainly open and level acreage is enhanced by woodlands. Highlights of the bright, airy 3,600-plus square-foot farmhouse include freshly painted rooms, new wood floors to match the existing wide plank pine flooring, a newly installed wood-burning fireplace, a stylishly updated main bath with up-to-the-minute design elements, a new laundry room, a new mud room and new mechanical workings including all-new electrical. Outdoor updates such as the newly refinished barn exterior and hay loft, and upgrades to the extensive fencing around pastures, all now served by running water, are among the equestrian improvements. Nestled deeply into the acreage and approached by a long tree-lined drive, the timeless architecture is reminiscent of heritage farms and estates dotting the area’s landscapes. Introduced by a fully windowed vestibule leading to a center hall, principal rooms flow easily from the entry. A full wall of built-in cabinetry, a wood-burning fireplace edged by new stacked stone and a white painted wood mantle and a sunny sitting area distinguish the elegant living room. A dramatic stacked stone fireplace anchors the dining room, where wide plank pine floors continue into the adjoining family room offering glass doors to the yard and pastoral views. The sparkling kitchen is upgraded with stone counters, white cabinetry, a subway tile backsplash and new upper-end stainless steel appliances. Set into a trio of the windows, the dining area is illuminated by a modern chandelier. A delightful sun room/home office with glass doors to the outside overlooks magnificent countryside scenery. Completing the first level is a mud room with a new sink and storage cabinets, a newly-created laundry room tucked behind sliding barn doors, and a stylish powder room. Upstairs, a grand primary bedroom is set under skylit cathedral ceilings and filled with natural light. The primary bath contains a stand-alone soaking tub, glass enclosed shower, crisp white beadboard paneling and vintage-inspired pedestal sink. Two more spacious bedrooms are served by a brand new full bath providing detailed tilework, a marble sink vanity and clear glass door shower. Horse-friendly amenities include the newly-refinished exterior of a seven-stall barn with a renovated full hay storage loft; replaced, repaired and painted three-board fencing enclosing the pastures; new running water service to all the pastures; and an outdoor riding ring. A portion of the acreage is located across the street. Bedminster Township in Somerset County is renowned its Gilded Era estates, low property taxes, and impressive school test scores.
