Freestone Farm: Exquisitely Sited on 76 Acres
Just around the corner from Brick Farm Tavern and Hopewell Borough, is 76+ acre Freestone Farm, a sophisticated sanctuary in Hopewell Township. Designed by prominent architect James Cutler, architect of Bill and Melinda Gates’ Xanadu 2.0, the main house is a perfect marriage of stone, timber and glass. The first floor features a semi-open floor plan, soaring ceilings, 28-foot spans of repurposed Douglas-fir and fieldstone bays. The kitchen is state of the art. 4 ensuite bedrooms, a sunroom, office and laundry, accessed by a semi-open walkway that runs the length of the house, are found on the second floor. ALL rooms in this amazing house showcase expansive meadow views. The charming original farmhouse, linked to the main house by a raised bluestone walkway, is perfect for guests or an Airbnb opportunity. A stream with a swimming hole that’s lored to have cooled George Washington’s soldiers during the Revolutionary War runs along the eastern side of the property. Ongoing maintenance of this magnificent property is a breeze: the fields are maintained by a neighboring farmer under a cooperative arrangement. Substantial acreage behind the house is forested, requiring little upkeep. A solar field and an energy-efficient heat pump reduce utility costs. In addition to the approximately 41 acres on which the main house is situated, this sale includes a separate, adjoining 35 acre lot. Both lots are substantially preserved. However, the separate lot also has a residential building opportunity and may be developed consistent with local zoning and planning requirements.
