The stone ruins of a humble 19th century farmhouse serve as the backbone for a contemporary Robert Hillier-designed home. Wishing to honor her family history, along with the farmers who worked the once 100-acre land on the Sourland Mountain before them, the current owner tasked the budding architect with incorporating an existing, albeit crumbling, 1820 structure into a modern, light-filled, 4-bedroom home with open gathering spaces. And Hillier certainly delivered! A glass roof tops the central Great Room proudly displaying repointed free-standing stone walls and heavy timber framing. The materials and colors of the adjoining renovated kitchen complement the rustic ambiance, while KitchenAid appliances are a sleek contrast. Both the living room and family room with floor-to-ceiling glass showcase the utterly private surrounds, now 30 open and wooded acres on the Amwell Valley trail system with a creek meandering through. From the nearby barn perched on a gentle hill the views are spectacular!
