A country road in the heart of beautiful Hunterdon County, delivers you to the pastoral setting of Bell Well Farm. Surrounded on all side by preserved land, the 1820 farmhouse is sited within a canvas of open lawns, mature specimen trees, flower beds, pastures, antique barn and a picturesque vineyard. The home has been tastefully expanded and renovated with a sophisticated eye and a true respect for preserving period detail. Unique for a dwelling of this age are the abundance of windows, high ceilings and light and airy charm throughout. The spacious rocking chair porch features the original stone well that lends its name to this historic farm. Vintage Dutch doors lead to a welcoming foyer complete with period Mercer tile and exposed beams. A sunny office area adjacent to the foyer is ideal for working at home, greeting clients, or homework. A powder room and mud/laundry room complete the area. The chef's kitchen is bathed in light and offers Viking/Thermador appliances, maple cabinetry, granite counters and original wide plank floors that flow into the open dining room with a decorative Mercer tile fireplace-perfect for family dinners and festive holiday gatherings. The spacious living room is the heart of the home, with hardwood floors and a wood burning fireplace it is perfect for both intimate gatherings and large scale entertaining. The living room opens directly to a sun-filled solarium that leads out to an expansive outdoor living space. Enjoy grilling, dining and entertaining areas under the shade of soaring trees. A private hot tub/plunge pool and outdoor shower are set apart and perfect for relaxing. Imagine alfresco dinners and BBQs overlooking the 1800s stone milk house for added character. The main bedroom suite offers all that one desires in a grand bed chamber...showcase windows overlooking the estate, high ceilings, a sitting area, wide plank flooring, a covered balcony and large spa-like master bath. There are three additional bedrooms for family and guests. All are large and bright with wide plank floors and 2 more renovated baths, one ensuite. The entire third floor is a spacious bonus room for family room, added office space, yoga studio or sleepovers with plenty of hidden storage. The outbuildings offer endless opportunities to live the country life. The circa 1800 bank barn is a treasure awaiting your imagination and the newer pole barn could house animals, a car collection or a workshop. Fully owned solar panels provide virtually free energy and the whole house auto-generator gives valuable peace of mind. Overlooking the vineyard, is a dining pergola and stone fire ring for fabulous campfire parties. Beautiful, low-maintenance perennial gardens and flowering trees bloom throughout the year adding colorful strokes to this living painting. Bell Well Farm has been designed to be a manageable country home with the sensibility of a splendid estate. History, nature and seclusion are yours just an hour from New York and Philadelphia and minutes from charming river towns like Lambertville, New Hope and the essential services of Flemington and Princeton.
