For the first time in nearly 100 years, historic Clove Brook Farm is being offered for sale. Centered around the ca. 1770 Stone House with abundant period details, the 172-acres of preserved farmland were once part of a much larger land holding purchased by Mabel S. Ingalls, eldest grandchild of John Pierpont Morgan, in 1932. The house and farm provided a refuge from the city where Mrs. Ingalls and her friends and family could walk, ride and hunt on the extensive grounds abutting Schunnemunk Mountain.
Four generations have called Clove Brook Farm home. J. P. Morgan’s great-granddaughter and noted environmentalist, Sandra van Heerden, continued the family tradition of stewardship, placing the property under a permanent conservation easement in 2001 to protect the 18th-century dairy farm and its bucolic views in perpetuity. The property is further enhanced by an in-ground pool with stone coping, three additional residences (totaling 16 bedrooms), landscaped grounds, and a number of agricultural facilities. From the rolling fields and natural spring-fed stream, the property is a nature lover’s dream, and benefits from access to the adjacent 3,300-acre Schunnemunk State Park, the Appalachian Trail, and the nearby Storm King Art Center. Clove Brook Farm is conveniently located just 60 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.
