Description

"Linden Hill" with roots well into the Rumson soil, is an extraordinary example of the large estates of the past. Privacy and peace abound with the traditional style colonial main house, a caretaker's cottage, working greenhouse, har-tru tennis court with a red cedar gazebo, a 3 bay equipment garage and 6 additional garages. The estate encompasses a unique total of 7.96 acres and is comfortably ensconced in one of Rumson's best estate areas between the Navesink and Shrewsbury Rivers. With close proximity to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, it is in a central location to enjoy the activities of the surrounding area.As you meander the grounds, the "joy of the garden" unfolds with gardens meticulously planted by an English horticulturist, as well as, a significant vegetable garden, a fruit orchard, koi ponds and specimen trees and a well for watering the grounds. 7 horses can live on this 7.96 acres. This property fits all the criterion for a farm assessment for tax purposes. The main house is a classic Rumson colonial built in 1902 with warm hardwood floors, mantled fireplaces, curved doorways and Dutch doors. The 9 bedrooms includes a 3 bedroom apartment, as well as, a main level guest suite with private entrance. The house was updated in 2003 with a new 30 year roof, GAF ice and water shield on all eves and valleys, re-flashed chimney with copper flashing. All new Marvin windows were installed with 12 over 12 pattern, insulated glass, low E. New RR Western Red Cedar shakes were installed with 10 inch exposure. All gutters and leaders were replaced with white 5" gutters and 3"X 4" leaders with galvanized hardware cloth for leaf guard. The Caretaker's Cottage includes 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, as well as, a 2 car garage and a raised deck overlooking the stunning gardens and trees. A wonderful place for guests or family visits.A recent subdivision was approved by the town, if the buyer's so desire. The 7.96 acres would be subdivided into 2 lots of approximately 4 acres each. The back lot will have a "flag" lot driveway to the back area of the parcel. It has the caretakers cottage, the tennis court and the equipment garage with plenty of room to build a luxurious home.The main house is on the front lot with the driveway remaining the same. The size and scope of the property, the road frontage and the locations of the buildings, leave many options for an investor of prime land and /or future estate development. This Golden Goose is priced just above assessment.This is the sleeping beauty of Rumson, the golden goose of Rumson and is priced just above the assessed value. An awesome buy with no risk.
