A Look at 124 Old Turnpike Rd. in Tewksbury

124 Old Turnpike Road

Tewksbury Township in Hunterdon County NJ is known for expansive estates on lush farm properties. This listing at 124 Old Turnpike Rd. has everything you could ask for from size of property, to modern amenities to scenic surroundings.

A long winding circular drive introduces visitors to this 5 bedroom and 5 full bath and 2 half bath estate. The 7100 square foot home is set on almost 23 acres of secluded farmland bordered by conservation land. The estate features 14 rooms in total in this desirable town.

One of the main features of the property is a gourmet, custom designed kitchen that will suit chefs of any skill level. Walnut cabinets, granite counters, floor-to-ceiling stone walls, slate tile floors and high-end appliances make this kitchen a cook’s dream come true. Exiting outdoors from the kitchen leads residents to a 1000 square foot mahogany deck perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining.

If you would rather do your entertaining inside you have plenty of options here. Grandly-scaled for large gatherings, the two-story great room is enclosed by three window walls and presents diagonally-placed ash flooring featuring coffee-stained inlays, exposed beam ceilings, a balcony overlook, chandelier and glass door to the deck. Centering this inviting room is a dramatic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace which can be fueled by propane. A built-in maple wet bar streamlines entertaining. Or lead guests to the sound-proof movie room for a near-theatre experience.

The elegant master suite offers birch floors, a stone wall fireplace, high angle ceilings and a 10'x20' walk-in closet. An atrium door opens to the heated bluestone deck with fantastic views. In the master bath, details include travertine tile flooring and walls, a cherry dual sink vanity topped in granite, private water closet and "bubbler" air jet tub. A state-of-the-art steam shower is oversized and offers nine shower heads, a marble seat, clear glass door and decorative mosaic tilework.

While every amenity is pleasing to the eye, even those you can’t see are top of the line. Mechanical workings include multiple zones of propane gas heat with air filters and humidifiers on the furnace, central air conditioning, a whole-house backup generator, water filter and softening system, comprehensive home security system, integrated sound system, central vacuum, a tankless propane-fired hot water heater, radiant heated floors in select rooms, private septic, well water and underground utilities.
