160-Acre Equestrian Estate in Northern New Jersey to List for $28.9 Million

A sprawling 160-acre equestrian estate in Colts Neck, New Jersey, that offers an artisan-crafted main residence, a barn built by Amish carpenters and a historic farmhouse, is coming onto the market for $28.9 million, Mansion Global has learned.

The main residence, clad in Jerusalem limestone, has nearly 25,000 square feet of interior living space with seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, according to Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon of Douglas Elliman, who are handling the sale in cooperation with listing agent Lisa Poggi, also of Douglas Elliman.

The team is planning to list the property early next week.

The four-story house, serviced by an elevator in addition to grand staircases, also offers a 24-seat dining room, a gourmet kitchen, a great room, a conservatory and an office occupying the entire third floor, which can be converted into bedrooms, Mr. Postilio said.

“The classic house was built to last for ages,” Mr. Conlon said. “The quality of the materials, the finishes, and the layout are second to none.”

The team declined to disclose the identity of the seller, who used a limited liability company to assemble the parcels and had the house custom built in 2007, property records show.

The main house also includes a 3,500-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, a 12-seat movie theater, a game room and a fitness center, according to the listing.

Outdoors, there is a fully equipped poohouse, a pool with a spa, a summer kitchen, formal gardens, two stocked ponds and a courtyard with a six-car garage, according to the listing.

The turnkey equestrian estate, located just one hour away from Manhattan in one of the highest-income communities in New Jersey, has a main barn hand-built by Amish carpenters. The two-story, Pennsylvania fieldstone structure has 24 oversized stalls, a foaling center, an owner’s office, a tack room and an apartment for a barn manager, according to the listing.

Surrounding the main barn is a quarantine barn, an equipment building, exercise ring, turnouts, fenced pastures and farm operations center with a circa-1890 farmhouse, according to the listing.
