Centrally located in New Jersey, just 1-hour from Manhattan, this world-class 160-acre horse farm and estate dedicated to the breeding, sale, and racing of thoroughbreds. The property is strategically located in the heart of the Northeast horse racing industry—home to such famous tracks as Saratoga, Belmont Park, Aqueduct, Pimlico Race Course, Delaware Park, and Philadelphia Race Track (Parx).
THE OWNER’S COMPOUND
Clad in Jerusalem limestone, the classically inspired main house presents 25,000 square feet of artisan-crafted interior spaces that invite grand-scale living and entertaining. The main level includes a 24-seat formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, lounge and eight-seat bar, great room, and conservatory. A grand staircase connects to three levels of the home, in addition to an elevator that services all four floors. The third floor houses the estate’s business office, four generous en-suite bedrooms, and lavish primary suite. A private staircase ascends to the fourth floor, offering two commodious en-suite bedrooms, a sitting room, and a dining area served by a Pullman kitchen.
The home’s lower level hosts a 3,500-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, a 12-seat movie theater, a game room, and a fitness center. At the rear of the main house is a grand pool and spa, summer kitchen, and fully equipped pool house. Adding to the grandeur are formal gardens, two stocked ponds, and a courtyard with a porte-cochère and six-car garage with staff apartment.
THE EQUESTRIAN FACILITY
The estate’s equestrian barn is without parallel. Hand-built by Amish carpenters, the two-story structure is clad in Pennsylvania fieldstone and features 24 oversized stalls, a foaling center, an owner’s office, tack room, and barn manager’s apartment. Supporting the main barn is a quarantine barn, equipment building, exercise ring, turnouts, fenced pastures, 1.5 miles of roads, and farm operations center with a circa-1890 farmhouse. There is a substantial amount of acreage for use as agricultural land or for the installation of a racetrack, polo field, or a dressage/showjumping stadium. This magnificent property is turnkey ready for continued use as a commercial equestrian operation and private family compound; alternatively, it could be subdivided for further development.
