Fawn Hill Farm, a Colonial estate with a working farm across 34 acres in New Vernon, New Jersey, will sell at a live, on-site auction on November 12 through Concierge Auctions. The property was once listed in its entirety for $22.5 million. The property has been divided into three parcels which are each selling absolute to the highest bidder regardless of price. The auction is being conducted in cooperation with listing agent Mary Horn of Weichert Realtors.
"This is one of the most premier and unique properties in all of New Jersey," Horn stated. "Nestled in the idyllic countryside, it's a serene retreat, while a mere 45-minute commute to the boundless amenities, business and entertainment of New York City."
The three parcels are 665 Spring Valley Road, which includes 16 acres with the main estate residence; 655 Spring Valley Road, which includes 13 acres plus a caretaker home and stables; and 677 Spring Valley Road, which includes four acres of land.
The main residence was originally built in the late 1930s and has 21 rooms including seven bedrooms. The home's interior has pegged hardwood floors, arched doorways, a grand Georgian staircase and seven distinctive fireplaces. The 33-foot-high foyer leads to an elevator that goes to the second floor with bedrooms and bathrooms. Rooms include formal living and dining room, a gourmet kitchen, breakfast nook, library with a wet bar, his-and-her dressing rooms in the master suite and a lower level media/exercise room complete with a bar and full-sized bowling alley.
The grounds are also home to a two-bedroom guest house, formal garden and a side patio overlooking a garden retreat with a swimming pool and pool house. The nearby motor courtyard has 12 bay garages. The live, on-site auction of Fawn Hill Farm will be held on November 12. The property is open for preview daily from 1 to 4 p.m. and by appointment. For details visit FawnHillAuction.com
