FAR HILLS, N.J., May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Concierge Auctions, the New York-based auction house known for its market-driven solution for selling the world's finest high-end properties, has announced the June 24th auction of Pickle Brook Farm in New Jersey's affluent community of Far Hills. Originally offered for $18.5 million, the scenic, 26-acre property will be sold in cooperation with Michael Lattmann and Erica Levey of Kienlen Lattmann Sotheby's International Realty, the luxury real estate firm with roots in the Somerset Hills area.
Less than an hour from Manhattan and only thirty minutes from Newark Airport, Pickle Brook Farm is perfect for those seeking a secluded getaway, while near the hustle of city life and travel ease. Located at 410 Lake Road, the gated estate was designed by famed architect Jeffrey A. Beer. The two-story, Bavarian-style residence includes five bedrooms, seven full and two half bathrooms, and custom details such as reclaimed timber beams, Pennsylvania fieldstone, and hand-carved fireplace mantles. Outdoors, the scenic acreage offers blooming foliage, custom water features, and expansive, groomed lawns with majestic views of Ravine Lake and the surrounding communities in the Somerset Hills.
"This estate is the ultimate in privacy with panoramic views that are rarely seen in the area. It's undoubtedly one of the most prestigious and iconic properties in the Somerset Hills. Built with pride and passion, this home is a triumph of architectural skill and the scenic splendor of nature's handiwork," stated Lattmann. "Additionally, since the property is farmland assessed, the taxes are considerably lower."
One of America's largest and oldest metropolitan areas, Somerset County urban comforts are balanced with beautiful hilly vistas, sprawling horse farms, and idyllic waterways. Highly acclaimed private and public schools, world-class golf courses, equestrian facilities, and Morristown airport are prized local amenities.
"The picturesque setting, quality design and ideal location make Pickle Brook Farm a perfect candidate for our platform," stated Concierge Auctions founder and president, Laura Brady. "We invite any interested parties to schedule a private preview. It simply has to be experienced in person to fully appreciate this unique buying opportunity."
