Description

Just an hour+GGs drive to NYC and Philadelphia, the idyllic Delaware Township has long been an escape for weekend homeowners and commuters alike, including the Roebling family. Scion John A. Roebling was the civil engineer behind the Brooklyn Bridge and numerous other suspension bridges. And while the area has its fair share of historic homesteads, Red Bridge Farm, once home to a Roebling heir, is unique among them. Nestled on 16+ acres along the serene Wickecheoke Creek, and featuring terraced gardens, a saltwater pool, all-weather tennis court, pool house w/ spa shower and wet bar, this historic property has been artfully transformed into a soothing, modern-day retreat that preserves the old world feel of a 19th century stone farmhouse. And feels worlds away from the city+GGs bustle. Comprised of a 4-bedroom, 3 1/2 bath fieldstone main residence, stone writer+GGs cottage with fireplace, and separate caretaker+GGs apartment (above a heated 2-car garage), the property is ideal for hosting family and friends, while affording everyone a welcome privacy. Originally built in 1805, Red Bridge Farm was home to two generations of the storied Rittenhouse family (considered the founders of America+GGs paper industry). The estate has historically been used as a weekend escape by its owners, whose number (while relatively few) included philanthropist, Mary G. Roebling (America+GGs first female Bank owner). In the 1980s, the owners commissioned a modern addition by celebrated architect Manuel Fernandez-Casteleiro (designer of Battery Park City and Soho+GGs Dean & Deluca) featuring expanses of glass that allow residences to enjoy the verdant grounds year-round; and a custom kitchen designed to gourmet chef standards of efficiency and access. Red Bridge Farm+GGs sense of bucolic isolation resonates more powerfully than ever. With New Jersey+GGs only remaining covered bridge within walking distance, and its storied connection to the Brooklyn Bridge, Red Bridge Farm is both a bridge to the past and a promise for the future. The property resonates with a unique history. And with its swimming holes, trout fishing and tow paths, it+GGs an idyllic place for families to build on that history. The estate+GGs dreamlike calm and surrounding preserved farmland belie the breadth of available sporting activities: Fishing; Boating; Ballooning; A destination for cycling groups from around the country; Walking and jogging along the Delaware River Tow Path; Hiking; Riding; Golf; Tennis; Bird Watching.The many cultural and culinary destinations nearby offer something for everyone: Local farm produce; Local breweries and distilleries; Great restaurants; ArtYard Contemporary Art Center; Music; Wineries; Festivals; Historic Bucks County Playhouse; New Hope and Lambertville nightlife only 10-15 minutes; Proximity to Princeton; Rich in history and historic buildings.
