The Mill House Compound
Bedminster, New Jersey
The Mill House Compound is a stunning generational estate that offers would-be buyers the rare opportunity to acquire a piece of Bedminster history. This country compound is held in five parcels on 155 acres of land with panoramic mountain views and the tranquil sounds of the Lamington River and waterfall. Once Vliettown Village, a working farm and grist mill dating to the 1700s, Mill House Compound provides an extraordinary legacy and heritage. The exceptional setting offers three residences, a 24-stall stable, a farm office, agricultural outbuildings, and two additional building lots, making this truly a one-of-a-kind lifestyle property that is steeped in old country character and charm.
The main residence, the Mill House, is at the heart of the compound. This expansive 18th-century home, brought into modern convenience in the 1930s and 1970s, still holds its period charm. Mill House was renovated by R. Brognard Okie, a Philadelphia architect noted for his restoration of Colonial Revival houses and buildings. During this renovation, the southern wing was expanded, and an addition was put on the northern end of the house, creating the current residence that stands today.
As you approach, you will be struck by the charm of longstanding country style, featuring classic columns and a pillared portico. The exterior is finished in a crisp white paint, which is complemented by the dark shutters and trim. The roof is adorned with period chimneys adding to the home’s historical presence.
As you enter the main residence, the spacious and bright foyer accented by the traditional staircase will greet you. Wide-plank wood flooring adds warmth to the space. From the foyer, you will find the living spaces finished with the same wide plank wood floors, each showcasing a large, classic wood fireplace. The rooms are flooded with natural light thanks to the large windows, which also provide views of the river, waterfall, and the property’s sprawling lawns and pastures. The formal dining room wraps you in a sense of history with the same charm of wood, light, and details of times past. The room is large enough to host large dinners and is the perfect setting for special occasions. Six bedrooms and seven bathrooms ensure that there is plenty of space for all.
The property also features two additional residences, the three-bedroom, 3100 sq. ft. Farm House and two-bedroom Stable Cottage updated in 2021 with the same level of character and charm as the main home, making them comfortable and cozy places to retreat.
Mill House is an equestrian’s dream, with a 24-stall stable remodeled in the 1920s to resemble a Kentucky-style barn. Both historic and highly functional, the stable holds an indoor perimeter exercise track, tack room, feed room, and indoor wash stalls. Furthermore, the property boasts several fenced pastures, a large outdoor arena with sand footing, and a jumping field. The Farm Office offers two office spaces, a full bathroom, and a kitchenette. You will find workshop garages and agricultural outbuildings to support the estate.
Take your time strolling the riverside, admiring the bridge and waterfall that connects the past to the present, or sit and listen to the peaceful sounds. Across the bridge is the quaint Artist Studio set on a 7-acre island. With the unmatched potential to expand the compound, two exceptional thirty-acre buildable parcels are waiting for your vision and design. The Mill House Compound offers buyers the potential to make this remarkable estate their own and start a new era of this magnificent property’s legacy.
Bedminster, New Jersey’s horse country, known for its horse farms, rolling hills, picturesque countryside, and proximity to New York City, is just a short drive from the shops, restaurants, recreational opportunities, NJ Transit, and highways. Whether an equestrian or family compound, Mill House is the perfect escape from city life.
