Black River Farm, Estate of the Day
A former dairy farm is now a classic equestrian estate. Black River Farm was a dairy farm for a neighboring estate in the early 1900s but is now an equestrian farm spread out over 134 acres and two townships in New Jersey. The original farmhouse was built in 1910 as a simple farmhouse which has been expanded over the years into a grand Colonial farmhouse with cedar shake roofing, French doors and copper gutters. Inside there is a dining room connected to a large kitchen, a library, living room, formal dining room and a den. Also on the first floor there is an office and the most pleasing to my eyes, a cozy family room with a beamed wooden cathedral ceiling and a tall fieldstone fireplace. The home has five bedrooms total including a master bedroom that includes a bath with an antique porcelain soaking tub. The grounds include lawns, gardens, paddocks and a shed.The equestrian facilities are of a professional level with 40 stalls in three barns, riding rings, paddocks and a jumping course. The land includes a three-bedroom caretaker's cottage. a duplex, and a studio apartment. This estate is listed at $7.95 million.
