Bucolic Clinton Township Horse Farm 

Embracing its pastoral setting in the Clinton Township countryside, a Contemporary-style home with farm outbuildings is a welcoming homestead that’s ideal for equestrian use. The home’s modern architecture offers relaxed living amid window walls that blur the lines between indoors and out. Set on 13.45 acres of open, level scenery, this rural property presents a four bedroom, three full bath cedar residence arranged on two levels, a four-stall horse barn, pastures enclosed by classic three-board fencing and vast open green spaces.

A common design element linking rooms on the first and second levels are cedar planked ceilings with exposed beams and oversized windows. The warm tones of the wood ceilings are illuminated by natural light streaming into an open floor plan. Additional details include oak parquet flooring, two wood-burning fireplaces, a built-in wet bar and skylights.

Outdoors, the heated in-ground pool features a newer liner and is overlooked by a roomy maintenance-free rear deck. The horse barn includes a large broodmare stall, three additional stalls, a tack room, workshop, two-plus parking bays and a lean-to for farm equipment. The barn’s hayloft can store up to 1,000 bales. Set far back from a quiet country road, this contemporary is approached by a long, paved circular drive.

Inside, the 4,600+ square-foot layout begins in a window-walled foyer containing an open staircase and double coat closet. This level has a huge family room anchored by a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace as well as sliding glass doors to the pool area. A two-level recreation room is set under skylit cathedral ceilings and features a spiral staircase to a huge lofted area adjoining the master bedroom. The home office on the first floor has a picture window framing peaceful views and access to the mud room, laundry and utility room. Two bedrooms with ample closet space share a full bath in the hallway. 

The upper level presents a living room warmed by the glow of a brick fireplace. Here, a curtain wall of sliding glass doors leads to the roomy rear deck. In the dining room, parquet oak floors and view-filled windows create a memorable special occasion space. The updated kitchen has oak cabinetry, granite countertops and a tile backsplash, while newer appliances, including a dishwasher and Samsung stainless steel refrigerator, are excellent additions. Tile floors, breakfast bar seating and vaulted beamed ceilings are further design enhancements. The adjacent breakfast area with parquet oak floors and chair rail moldings opens to the wet bar with seating for four.

Bedrooms on this level include a gracious master suite offering sliding glass doors to the deck, access to the upper level loft set above the recreation room and a master bath featuring a jetted tub, separate shower and skylight. The home’s fourth bedroom is served by another full bath. 

Further amenities include a new roof, oil-fired hot water baseboard heat, private septic and well water. Clinton Township has a longstanding rural heritage that can be witnessed on a drive through its borders. Bucolic landscapes include an abundance of wide open spaces, conservation land, parks and working farms. Clinton Township is approximately 50 miles west of New York City, and about 40 miles from Newark Liberty International Airport.

Clinton Township, NJ real estate market

Located amid the gently rolling hills of Hunterdon County along the South Branch of the Raritan River, Clinton Township encompasses 39-square-miles which encircle Lebanon Borough and border High Bridge and the townships of Franklin, Union, Lebanon, Tewksbury, Readington and Raritan. The township includes the rural hamlets of Annandale, Allerton, Readingsburg and part of Cokesbury.

Clinton's charming Victorian-era village attracts visitors and locals with its historic shopping area, flowering cherry tree-lined streets and scenic river and waterfall views. The antique truss bridge constructed in 1870 crosses the South Branch of the Raritan River and overlooks a 200-foot wide waterfall separating two old grist mills: Clinton's landmark Red Mill, home of the Hunterdon Historical Museum, and the Stone Mill, which houses the Hunterdon Museum of Art.

Often described as a quintessential American small town, Clinton has drawn the attention of Hollywood stars and movie producers over the years. Scenes from In and Out with Kevin Kline, One True Thing with Renée Zellweger and Meryl Streep, My Giant with Billy Crystal and Turbulence with Ray Liotta have all been shot in Clinton.
