For the first time in nearly 100 years, historic Clove Brook Farm is being offered for sale. Centered around the ca. 1770 six bedroom stone house with abundant period details and panoramic scenic views, the 172-acres of preserved farmland has been enjoyed by the direct descendants of J.P. Morgan as a home and weekend retreat for 4 generations. The house and farm provided a refuge from the city where friends and family could walk, ride and hunt on the extensive grounds abutting Schunnemunk Mountain.
Clove Brook Farm has been placed under a permanent scenic conservation easement since 2001, thereby protecting its bucolic views in perpetuity. Highlights of the property are an outdoor living room, an in-ground pool with stone coping and a pool/sauna building, a tennis court, and a large fenced vegetable and flower garden. Further property features include three additional residences for guests, tenants or staff (totaling 10 bedrooms) and a number of agricultural facilities including a horse stable, dog kennel and barns. A spring-fed stream flows through the property and feeds a 3+ acres pond full of fish that supports abundant wildlife and migrating birds.
The property is a nature lover’s dream with its rolling hills and scenic views, and benefits from access to the adjacent 3,300-acre Schunnemunk State Park (part of which was donated by the owners of Clove Brook Farm) and the nearby Storm King Art Center. Clove Brook Farm is conveniently located just 50 miles from New York City, and only 2 miles from the Salisbury Mills Train Station, providing direct access to New York on the Port Jervis line. Stewart Airport is 15 minutes away.
Clove Brook Farm is one of the largest single estates still intact and preserved within a short drive of New York City. The property has been meticulously maintained and presents the opportunity for a new owner to upgrade the estate to their personal liking.
