31 Cold Brook Road,
Tewksbury Twp. NJ

4 beds | 4.1 baths | 40 Acres | MLS/ID#: 16564148


Cold Brook Farm is beautifully situated on 40 picturesque acres in the heart of the Essex Hunt country. The land is open and held in two contiguous parcels, providing the opportunity for a second home site.  It includes a one-acre spring-fed pond.  Stunning panoramic views of the pond, pastures and countryside abound on this magical landmark property. 

The centerpiece of the farm is an antique Colonial, circa 1850. Later additions in 1900 and 1940 expanded the original floor plan.  In 2017, the current owners undertook a major renovation that brought modern amenities to all fourteen rooms in this antique gem.  Restored hardwood floors, four new bathrooms, a renovated kitchen, new windows, and central air conditioning are some of the many improvements. The home’s rural origins and architectural details, including five fireplaces and hand-hewn beams, have been preserved for future generations and to honor the rich history of Cold Brook Farm. 

A gravel path leads to a new covered porch entry with a copper roof, herringbone brick terrace and copper light fixtures.  An antique wood door opens into a lovely entry foyer that adjoins the formal dining room. A cozy paneled library/office with one of five working fireplaces is tucked between the dining room and living room. A large living room with an adjoining enclosed porch offers revolving views of the pool and property. The kitchen runs from the front to the back of the house.  New stainless steel appliances blend beautifully with the restored wide-plank pumpkin pine floors in the breakfast area.  The breakfast area is anchored by a fireplace and was opened to the formal dining room during the recent renovation.  A side porch conveniently serves as a mud room and laundry area. 

A gracious front staircase or a discrete back stairwell lead to the second floor, where all four of the bedrooms are located. The master bedroom features a dressing area, wood-burning fireplace and luxurious new bathroom.  Three additional bedrooms, three new full bathrooms and an open lounge and office area complete the second floor.  

Cold Brook Farm is accessible from two driveways off of Cold Brook Road.  The farm  includes a three-story 1850s timber frame bank barn with four stalls and an office, a studio barn with a finished second floor office, an equipment barn with a mud room/half bath, a third barn for goats and donkeys and a fourth barn with four more horse stalls and covered storage for equipment. 

Celebrated for its rolling hillsides, equestrian properties and pastoral estates, Tewksbury Township is convenient to Route 78 and approximately 45 miles from New York City and 35 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport. 

The farm encompasses 40 acres of beautiful land, now held in two contiguous parcels due to a recent subdivision. The centerpiece of the property is an antique Colonial and a timber frame barn with 4 stalls. The residence features 4 bedrooms, 4-1/2 new bathrooms, an updated kitchen with upscale appliances. Five working fireplaces, refinished hardwood floors, new windows, central air conditioning, and a freshly painted interior and exterior provide a unique opportunity for the buyer who yearns for a restored country property. Three additional barns, 1-acre pond and three pastures complete this bucolic setting.
