581 Pottersville Rd, Bedminster, New Jersey, 07921
Journey down the one-mile driveway and imagine living on a secluded 217-acre estate nestled in Bedminster’s famed horse country. A winding drive, rolling hills, and woodlands are reminiscent of a storybook setting. Spanning six parcels and over 15,000 square feet of living space, McMurtry Farms is uniquely positioned to be the perfect country compound.
The facade of the manor house greets you with perfectly manicured gardens and steeply pitched rooflines of slate, while the exterior is accented with brick and limestone. The brick chimneys rising from the roofline and covered breezeway that wraps the heated courtyard only adds to the grand country feel of the estate. The setting is worthy of an artist’s canvas and brush.
The majestic gardens offer visual guidance and structure to the grounds surrounded by fields and woodlands. You will find a tennis court with a trellised pergola, a beautiful climate-controlled greenhouse, and a seven-bay heated garage and courtyard for the hobbyist, gardener, or car enthusiast. All naturally blend with the architecture and landscape. The manor house confidently sits on a rise overlooking the hard lines of trimmed hedges, terraced stone walls, and sweeping lawns as they fade to the natural beauty of mature trees and lush scenery. In the background, you will find a well-fed pond and hear the faint sound of the waterfall. The pond welcomes you down the stone staircase and greets you with the gentle sway of the tall grass border.
The interior of the manor house is equally impressive, with custom architectural details that are just as pleasing to the eye as the scenery that embraces it. The entry foyer will greet guests with the curved floating staircase that dramatically spans three levels. You will notice the arched doorways, intricate crown molding, raised panel wainscot, detailed millwork, and rich custom flooring throughout the home. For the avid reader and book lover, the two-story cherry-paneled library will be a sanctuary, while the movie enthusiast may prefer the cozy yet spacious first-floor media room. The kitchen is bright and well equipped with high-end appliances, custom cabinetry, and generous counter and prep space—ready to cater to large gatherings.
Each of the six spacious bedrooms in the main house are ensuite with fitted walk-in closets. All shine with an individual character through custom details. The primary suite has high ceilings and rich cherry double doors. The room features a coved ceiling and masonry gas fireplace accented by a carved limestone mantle and hearth. The ensuite wraps you in luxury with radiant heated floors, dual furniture style vanities, jetted tub, and large walk-in linen closet and dressing room.
The lower level of the main house features an expansive wine cellar, gym, billiards room, playroom, full bath, and kitchenette. And for the extended guest, the separate private one-bedroom apartment above the detached garage is spacious with views of the estate. From the stone and wood floors, French doors, high ceilings, and four fireplaces, you will find all the present-day conveniences but may feel as if you live in a beautifully scaled model of a Monet.
While you may never want to leave, shopping, dining, nationally ranked golf courses, excellent public or private schools, and equestrian facilities are close and plentiful. Enjoy exceptional privacy while in close proximity to the NJ Transit train, Routes 78/287 and 50 miles to NYC. McMurtry Farm is a unique opportunity to live life at its best.
