Resources Real Estate Presents Cobble Close Farm Historic Property


1678738846RUMSON, NJ USA - Resources Real Estate is proud to announce that for the first time since 1953, the main house of Cobble Close Farm has been brought to market.

Cobble Close Farm, a French country estate located in Middletown, NJ, was built in the 1920s for Herbert Straus, an heir of Macy's co-owner and U.S. Congressman Isidor Straus, who perished on the Titanic with his wife, Ida, who refused a seat in a lifeboat to remain at her husband's side while the ship was sinking.1678739051

Originally built on 143 acres, Herbert sought to create an estate in the French Norman style built with materials transported from Europe. The property is currently approximately 13 acres with four private residences built of stucco and cast stone with red, ceramic-tiled roofs and surrounded by fountains, gardens, a pool, lawns bordered by Greco-Roman statues, and an orangery. 1678739542

Despite the old world grandeur, the available home for sale is a converted dairy barn that measures 4,950 square feet and features a solarium, magnificent parlor and dining room, and an adjacent three-bedroom apartment. Its unique character has made it a favorite location for fashion, film and television shoots.

"I am so excited to bring such a unique piece of history to the market,” said listing agent Katherine Raftery, Sales Associate at Resources Real Estate. “This is truly a rare opportunity – the setting and architecture are something that must be seen to fully appreciate.”1678739572
