This historic mini-mansion was built in 1886 by famous architect James Rowland for his own family. From the museum quality medallions on the living room ceiling to the exquisite archways, Hempstead Farm is all about elegance from a bygone era. One portion of the house dates back to the 17th century, with a window seat of leaded glass.James T. Rowland built a city, Jersey City, and he paid special attention when he built his home.
Originally a dairy farm, the house had also been the residence of a Ship's Captain, and a Gardener/Florist. The Captain mounted a piece of his ship's wainscoting to the bedroom hallway, and the florist planted perennial gardens along the pathways. The property had been part of the parade grounds for the war of 1812.
Modernized with a pool for swimming, pool patio, deck, screened room and outdoor shower. The ceramic tile that lines the second floor bathrooms from floor to ceiling, was special ordered and imported from Spain. The roof was updated with slate from New Hampshire, ice breakers and gutter toppers.
