c. 1917 Historic Home

Bindon Farm

This stately 80-acre property has deep roots in the celebrated history of turn-of-the-last-century Bedminster. Designed by the eminent New York-based architect Montague Flagg, and completed in 1917, the main residence at Bindon is a sprawling, French-inspired stucco home, sited to maximize views of its bucolic surrounds of gently rolling hills and woodlands. Characterized by a slate roof, multiple bay windows and dormers, and an unusual conical turret, Bindon is unique among the area’s country homes.

Bindon Farm is offered for sale in its entirety of 80.88 acres: 68.88 acres have been placed in conservation with farmland assessment; a 12-acre exception area envelopes the existing structures.

More About This House

Crafted for gracious living and entertaining, Bindon has grand formal rooms, all with fireplaces decorated by intricately carved wood mantels. Hardwood flooring, crown molding, doors with recessed paneling, and period casement windows are found throughout. A butler’s pantry, formal powder room, and large kitchen with adjoining breakfast room and bluestone breakfast patio service the demands of a bustling household with executive entertaining needs.

Elegant winding stairs with graceful wrought-iron balusters lead up to the home’s five main bedrooms, including a master suite with two bathrooms and two fireplaces. The main house includes both a first-floor and a second-floor apartment, each with a private living room and kitchen/ette.

An unusual offering of Bindon is the 1920’s Godwin-designed brick pool house, which features a vast cathedral-ceilinged living room, loft bedroom, kitchen, and two bathrooms. Wall murals, depicting jungle animals, painted by the late well-known local artist Mare Watts, adorn the 23-foot great room. Beyond are the large lap pool and a Har-Tru tennis court, both strategically placed to take in the sweeping hillside views.

The original owner, Pierrepont, was an avid horseman with a passionate interest in farming the property, as reflected in the large stable and barn complex, designed in similar style to the house. Stucco with a slate roof, the seven-stall structure with a tack/wash room, as well as tool, utility, and storage rooms, is built around an open courtyard. Three apartments, with a total of seven bedrooms, are included in the stables.

A secondary two-story barn for hay and garage storage, three run-in sheds, and fenced pastures lend themselves to a fully equipped farm or equestrian operation, as envisaged by the Pierreponts, who kept cattle, sheep, pigs, and bird dogs, in addition to their beloved horses.
