1879 Dutch Colonial
Chester, NJ

What we started with 60 years ago...

 Garden view, Dining Room

A relaxing Country-English Living room;

From an 1879 Hip-roofed hunting-lodge to…

This comfortable, well functioning combination of old style hominess and 20th C. renovations dominates the centre-top of our hill, in its own park-like grove of 100” trees, a wide range of perennials, specimen shrubs, and hand- built stone walls.

Despite Cicero’s admonition that “if you have a garden and a library you need little else” there is much more to love about this uniquely contrived little country estate.
