Weatherstone Farm, Estate of the Day
Today's home is a case of a new home that aspires to be old. Weatherstone Farm was inspired by Frothingham House, one of early 20th century architect John Russell Pope's classical designs. The five-bedroom Georgian manor with a slate roof sits on 96 acres. The home comes by some of its classic look through the use of architectural artifacts salvaged from various sites in Europe and the U.S. The 32-foot center hall is completed by an antique curved glass window wall and the imported English 18th century library has the original pine paneling and fireplace surround. The master bedroom has his and hers walk-in closets, a fireplace and bathroom. There are three additional en suite bedrooms, a laundry room and three cedar closets on this floor. On the lower level there is a wine cellar with a temperature controlled storage room and a housekeeper's apartment with private stone staircase entry. This home is listed at $12.5 million. An additional 32 acres with extensive equestrian facilities and improvements is also available for $5.5 million.
UPDATE: Thanks to Eric for pointing out that I neglected to mention this home's location, it is in Bedminster Township, New Jersey
