Property description
Incomparable craftsmanship. Historic significance. Modern convenience. The Drumthwacket Garden House: Restored for the 21st Century... Historic charm meets modern luxury at the Drumthwacket Garden House, one of six original outbuildings of Moses Taylor Pyne's 300-acre Drumthwacket estate. Today, the estate's main house serves as New Jersey's governor's mansion, while a masterful, award-winning restoration has transformed the Garden House into a fresh interpretation of an English Arts and Crafts-style country manor. Dominated by an impressive 40-foot tower that blends seamlessly with a brick privacy wall running the length of the property, this masonry and timber masterpiece by early 20th-century Princeton architect Raleigh Gildersleeve boasts exquisite period details and irreplaceable craftsmanship surrounded by mature plantings and extensive perennial gardens. Inside, a wood paneled Great Hall with 11-foot ceilings and full-length arched windows overlooks a vine-covered pergola amidst manicured grounds. Distinguished by wide plank hardwoods, gracefully arched windows and doorways, and a majestic fireplace, this massive room has hosted many large-scale events, but functions just as well as an intimate gathering place. A modern country kitchen and adjoining family room provide a warm and welcoming center for living and entertaining, while first and second floor primary suites with glass-tiled en suite baths complement a three-bedroom, two-bath upstairs wing along a sun-filled gallery. In the tower, upstairs and downstairs libraries provide ideal spaces for reading and reflection. Above the kitchen wing, a bedroom and bath with a separate staircase might easily make a private space for maid, nanny, or visiting relatives. In the basement, there's a climate-controlled wine cellar, while just a short walk outside lies a semi-detached entertainment cottage with half-bath and bar. Beautiful design. Incomparable craftsmanship. Historic significance. Modern convenience. The Drumthwacket Garden House combines all of these in a livable, comfortable, unique home fully equipped for today's living. Some photos include virtual staging. Owner is NJ Licensed Real Estate Agent.
