About 1728 Millstone River Road

"The Brookie" is a historic 18th and 19th century farmstead that feels suspended in time. Postcard worthy, the stream-side country estate has been under the loving stewardship of only 3 families in its almost 300-year existence. In addition to the classic white house with Italianate ornamentation and a wraparound Victorian porch, the compound comprises 4 barns in a dramatic red hue, as well as various other outbuildings, including a tranquil studio. Wide-plank floors with their original patina, fireplaces, wonderful examples of early paneling and elegant proportions, especially in the final and grandest section of the residence, are reminders of the property's history, first built in approximately 1735. Glimmering fixtures make the formal parlor and dining room elegant alternatives to the large, more casual family room. With 3 staircases, a second kitchen, and a separate entrance, the interior is highly flexible, easily providing guests with their own autonomous quarters. 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, office, and first floor laundry are also present. At 6.38 acres the property offers many opportunities, including barns large enough to house any hobby or artistic passion, as well as proximity to the D&R Canal State Park and its recreational activities. The Brookie is one of many historic properties in the Millstone Valley Agricultural Historic District that is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and it is sited on Millstone River Road, a National Scenic Byway. This very accommodating property is under evaluation for inclusion in the New Jersey Historic Trust's easement program. Give this Garden State treasure the respect and care it deserves, and it will pay you back tenfold in joy, pride and beautiful memories.
