About Horse Farm and Estate in New York Area, GRAND GEORGIAN-STYLE MANOR, Peapack, New Jersey
Set atop a hill at the end of a long winding driveway, this elegant Georgian-style estate is majestically situated on more than 62 secluded acres, with dramatic panoramas of the rolling Somerset Hills.
Designed by New York architect James C. Mackenzie, the residence has been impeccably restored and renovated. The gracious 19-room floor plan, which includes five bedrooms and seven full and two half bathrooms, features stunning architectural features, marble and hardwood floors, high ceilings, exquisite mill work, detailed paneling,and a wine cellar and tasting room. Principal rooms on the main floor fan out from the marble-floored front-to-back entry hall.
A sophisticated living room and formal dining room are ideal for entertaining, with French doors opening to a broad blue stone terrace and expansive English gardens. The salon, adjacent to the dining room, is an intimate gathering spot before dinner or for use as a game room. The cherry-paneled library is adjacent to a pub room featuring a zinc bar imported from France. In the gourmet kitchen, commercial grade stainless steel appliances, four ovens, a six-burner stove top plus grill, a pizza oven, dual islands, and two dishwashers are a cook's delight, while a sunny breakfast room opens to the back terrace.
On the second floor, an impressive master bedroom includes two dressing rooms and two separate bathrooms. Four additional bedrooms each have a full bathroom. In the newer office suite, a wood-paneled study adjoins a conference room, and there is an additional office/study on the second floor. The third floor features eight rooms that once housed staff.
