Description

A gorgeous escape from the city, located in the rolling hills of Delaware Township, Stockton, NJ in the heart of horse country, Holly Farm comprising 120 acres is a World Class equestrian facility, currently used as an Olympic-caliber show jumping facility. The topography also lends itself to other disciplines. The main barn, designed by renowned architect Ralph C Fey, has won numerous awards. The degree of quality and detail that took two years to build is evident immediately from the solid mahogany doors to the stone construction with pedimented and true keystone archways. There are 16 main barn stalls, four of which are oversized, multiple grooming and wash stalls, two with heated solariums, as well as a vet/farrier stall. The stall construction is by Corton and imported from the Netherlands. Corton is renowned for their superior powder coat finish that is built to last over time. Barn walls are two-inch-thick tongue and groove oak. Heavy mahogany doors feature Rocky Mountain bronze hardware. There is a 70 foot clear span six horse hot walker attached to the east wing with windows that open to let fresh air circulate and a solarium upper level to let in light. All floors are brick with subfloor radiant heat throughout. There is a trunk room with outside access to make loading and unloading equipment easy. There are two laundry rooms, a powder room, a large office with lounge area for guests, and an elevator to the second floor. There are 15 security cameras strategically located to be able to see all areas of the barn from one central monitoring location. The feed room is metal lined to prevent rodents. The upper level consists of a 5,000 sq ft unfinished luxury apartment. The systems are already in place, the wiring is complete, and the walls are studded out. At this stage you can choose your own finish materials or re-design the space. The elevator opens into the apartment. There is an open-air balcony and a large great room with a gas fireplace, which opens to a bright kitchen with skylights and center island. There is a separate library plus bedrooms and bathrooms. The apartment opens to an atrium with custom iron railing for guests to stroll and explore with a glass of wine and a view of horses below. Another wing is hay storage with reinforced floors to accommodate two tractor loads of hay. Adjacent to the main barn is a summer barn with eight stalls, wash and tack rooms, plus a large hay loft. There are multiple paddocks by each barn and two, ten acre plus fenced fields with run in sheds. Behind the summer barn is a large four bay Morton building for storage of tractors, trailers, and farm equipment. There is ample parking for cars and trailers and RV hookups for traveling guests. The equestrian facility also includes a caretaker’s house and a two bedroom grooms cottage. Bid on the 83 plus acre horse lots, or the entire 120 acre estate, with two private but connecting entries. This stunning estate includes a stone manor home, a storybook log cabin, guest cottages as well as additional staff housing and multiple outbuildings. The highlight of Holly Farm is the world class derby jumping field. The jumping arena features the finest quality silica sand footing available. The design of the jumping field is truly unparalleled.
