Notre maison

Possibly one of the most stunning and unique homes in the New York City area, Cobble Close Farm is a French Norman historic masterpiece (much of it was shipped, in the 1920's, from dismantled French & Belguim estates). It is a "Norman farm group" designed by Alfred Hopkins and was once part of a 135 acre estate/farm complex built for one of America's richest families, the Stauss' (who owned Macy's department stores), a number of whom, tragically, met their end on the Titanic. The property has appeared in films and is often used in TV and magazine ads (Vogue, Victoria's Secret). It is located in the exclusive Rumson-area suburb, just south of Manhattan (40 minutes by ferry, 45/50 minutes by car, 1 hr. by train), home of rock stars (Springsteen & Bonjovi), actors (Queen Latifah), and many Wall St. executives. Today, our house is part of a 13-acre private-estate where three other owners share groundkeeping expenses and general estate management. The house, once a large cattle barn & milking/bottling facility, has 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, a den, livingroom, two working fireplaces, a basement HDTV room, newly renovated high-end kitchen, high-speed Internet, cable HDTV, private cutting gardens, a hot tub, swimming pool (w/table tennis/bar/cabana), and the charm of an authentic European country estate with livestock roaming our private pastures. Use of a 2006 Volvo convertible is possible.

En savoir plus sur nous

  1. I'm a semi-retired advertising and marketing consultant originally from San Francisco (previously SVP Marketing at Prudential Real Estate and worked at many large New York City ad agencies) who now works on Internet start-up projects. My wife, who is from New Jersey, is a retired bond and hedge fund trader. We have a son 18, and a daughter 18 both of whom attend boarding school in the northeast. We spent a year in Cape Town three years ago and loved it.





Just 40/45-minutes south of Manhattan by high-speed ferry, the Rumson area of New Jersey is one of the most prestigious suburban neighborhoods in the New York city metropolitan area. Our home is in the "estate" area with the Navesink Country Club on our left and a large horse farm to our right. While set in picturesque rural tranquility amoung hundreds of acres of horse pastures, we are literally just minutes from shopping and the town of Red Bank. A supermarket/mall (Whole Foods) is one minute away.
