A creative approach to Green building was the guiding principle in the making of this singular home. Disassembled and re-imagined in 2003, this mid-1800’s barn discovered in a nearby community, was expanded in 2006 to meld old with new. The result focuses on connecting people with the outdoors via volume interior spaces and simple natural landscaping. Original hand- hewn beams, antique recycled wood trim and low VOC finishes add to the authenticity of this unique home. Upgraded mechanicals, radiant heat throughout, solar power and SIP insulated interior wrap enhance its practicality. The farm assessed land is held in two contiguous lots of open rolling fields, hedgerows and woodland, totaling over 41 acres. This home is beautifully sited on a 15.99 acre parcel. It is approached by a lengthy tree-lined drive and surrounded by mature flowering trees and shrubs. The front door opens to a generously-sized living room with a formal dining area at one end featuring an imposing local fieldstone fireplace. A central mezzanine reveals the second floor and the vaulted ceiling with blue Structural Insulated Panels. This is the pivotal room for gatherings, festive entertaining or simply a cozy evening at home. An adjacent kitchen offers an area for meal preparation, a sitting area with a wood-burning stove, a dining area and even space for a desk. The floor here is low VOC Marmoleum which does not require any adhesive. Leading from the kitchen is a sunroom providing walls of windows and a recycled antique brick floor. A flexible space, it’s perfect for winter relaxation or as a game room. Conveniently located on the first floor is the in-law suite with its separate entrance. This large bedroom has a corner fireplace with a wood-burning insert, a full bath and a comfortable sitting area. Two double French doors adjoin the covered side porch. Tucked around the corner is the cozy library, its walls lined with bookshelves, and the wet bar with hand painted countertop tiles by noted artist Katherine Hackl. Across the room is the light-filled den with an angular ceiling and outdoor access through a French door. The impressive spiral staircase to the upper floor is finished with a gleaming copper handrail. The upper level bedrooms and offices are arranged around the open mezzanine. The primary bedroom has lovely views of the meadow through the large picture window. In addition, four skylights with shades and remote operation fill the room with natural light. The primary bath has a dual sink custom vanity topped in marble. There is a footed soaking tub, a separate shower and a secluded water closet. The floor sparkles with colorful recycled glass. Two secondary bedrooms and two office rooms complete this floor. Tewksbury Township in Hunterdon County is known for its pastoral scenery, farm stands and quaint hamlets, yet is just minutes from Interstate 78 for commuters. Fine public and private schools, abundant recreational opportunities, hundreds of acres of parkland and premier country and golf clubs are found throughout this picturesque region.
