Historical Charm Meets Modern Luxury: Own a Piece of Retail Real Estate Royalty

This stunning 5+ acre property located in Middletown, NJ, has a distinguished provenance. Originally the stable block and caretakers cottage on the Estate of the esteemed Nathan Straus, the founder of Macy's. The property has been reimagined into a one of a kind residence with exquisite design, well-maintained historical charm & impressive architecture. The current owner has taken this elegant home next level with extensive luxury upgrades. The modern day flexible floor plan could lend itself to multi-generational living, work from home or anything you can dream up! The zen setting will relax you with 100+ year Sycamore trees, formal flower & vegetable gardens designed by Lili of the Valley (garden designer at 'The Grove'), a 350K gallon naturally fed pond, a chicken coop and sweeping lawns. There is also a cottage that is a blank slate, waiting for its next owner to complete in any way they'd wish. During the early 20th century, Straus acquired hundreds of acres in Middletown for his country retreat. His estate was designed by the esteemed architect Alfred Hopkins, who was well known for designing residences for the Vanderbilts, Tiffanys and other important industrialists of the 19th century.. Later Mr Straus, a friend of Louis Pasteur, acquired one of Pasteur's patents and was the first to bring the process of milk 'Pasteurization' to the US which he developed at this property. Mr Staus transported his pasteurized milk to the city with horse drawn carriages from these stables to distribute to parents. This innovation was solely responsible for significantly lowering high childhood mortality at that time. Sadly, Mr Straus perished on the Titanic, but the stables remain and carry forth his rich history and legacy. A one-of-a-kind residence in an ideal location close to the beach, Red Bank, Whole Foods, and minutes to the NYC ferry!!
