Off Market (155 Days)


The owner of 175 Pleasant Valley Road in Hopewell, NJ, loves to tell the story of how he happened upon the 17 acres of secluded and spectacular land where he and his wife built their dream home, an 8-bedroom, 6.5-bath converted 1790's Dutch barn with every imaginable amenity. Although they already had homes in several prime locations across the country, including Philadelphia, New York and Florida, they were looking for the perfect property for a country retreat. Tranquil and remote, yet an easy commute to Manhattan. A place to escape, hike, relax, entertain and rejuvenate. They would create a luxurious world class home in the woods that was as rustic and welcoming as it was lavish, where family, friends and associates could gather and enjoy the best of all worlds?a historic backdrop, a convenient location, the ultimate in privacy with sweeping views of an enchanted forest from multiple balconies and patios. The main house would be an authentic barn restored by the NJ Barn Company, whose one-of-a-kind historic preservations are nationally renowned. They had lofty goals and a clear vision of cozy, intricately crafted lofts within high, vaulted ceilings and dramatic public spaces. Yet, where would this magical getaway take root? They loved the quaint river towns along the Delaware, such as New Hope, PA, and Lambertville,NJ, unpretentious yet breathtakingly beautiful and full of history. They could walk or bike along the scenic Delaware-Raritan Canal to Washington Crossing State Park,where Gen.George Washington altered the course of history during the Revolutionary War. As the story is told, he found the land at last, while having breakfast at Sneddon's, an old-fashion luncheonette that attracted the locals. He picked up a real estate magazine and there it was, the future home of Vanderbourg Farm, situated next to 1,000 acres of preserved land, not far from the cultural and intellectual center of Princeton, NJ. The owners spent two years working closely with some of the best craftsmen in the region, to meticulously restore the Dutch barn in a way that reflected their appreciation of authenticity and for the finer things in life. From the moment you enter the property, you are surrounded by nature and transformed to a more peaceful place within yourself. It's a very personal experience, yet universally described as inspiring yet tranquil, impressive yet understated. Full amenities list upon request.
