Description for 438 River Road, Belle Mead, NJ 08502
TOWHEE FARM. The book on Towhee Farm is the stuff of fairytales, complete with a gorgeous old house, garden party grounds, horses and a country club lifestyle. But the real storybook part comes from the financial ledgers. With income from a cottage, several apartments in a separate building, a workshop and stable with 8 box stalls and paddocks, this private 9.12 acre estate can carry itself. Located in a picturesque section of Montgomery Township, with its excellent schools, close proximity to Princeton and major transportation routes, Towhee Farm does not stand alone. It is just one gem in a series following a winding, historic road. At the core of this equestrian estate is the Beekman House, built in 1804, it is a classic Federal-style residence with high ceilings, rich architectural details and absolutely stunning Zuber wall paper in the dining room. Published in France, the Zuber wallpapers depict gorgeous scenes from the Americas, which was the height of fashion at the time, and also adorn walls in the White House. Multiple working fireplaces, beautiful floors and a gracious floorplan have been enhanced with modern systems, gourmet kitchen and a massive addition providing even more entertaining space and a bedroom count that reaches five. Amenities include: large top floor studio; library; cabin-sized screened porch; master bedroom suite with sitting room, bath, dressing area, and two fireplaces. Elsewhere on the property: large, tile-trimmed swimming pool with classically positioned pool house; tennis court; dressage ring; multiple barns; fenced paddocks with automatic horse waterers; all on a breezy expanse of land surrounded by mature trees. Property consists of two lots.
