The equestrian compound 318-322 Route 537 in Colts Neck, NJ has hit the market for $28,900,000 with Lisa Poggi of Douglas Elliman as the broker of record, in addition to both Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon of Douglas Elliman as the national marketing consultants.
The main house is clad in Jerusalem limestone. It’s a classically inspired compound with 25,000 square feet of artisan-crafted interior spaces that invite grand-scale living and entertaining.
The main level includes a 24-seat formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, lounge and eight-seat bar, great room, and conservatory. A grand staircase connects to three levels of the home, in addition to an elevator that services all four floors. The third floor houses the estate’s business office, four generous en-suite bedrooms, and lavish primary suite. A private staircase ascends to the fourth floor, offering two commodious en-suite bedrooms, a sitting room, and a dining area served by a Pullman kitchen.
The home’s lower level hosts a 3,500-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, a 12-seat movie theater, a game room, and a fitness center. At the rear of the main house is a grand pool and spa, summer kitchen, and fully equipped pool house. Adding to the grandeur are formal gardens, two stocked ponds, and a courtyard with a porte-cochère and six-car garage with staff apartment.
The estate’s equestrian barn is hand-built by Amish carpenters. It’s a two-story structure clad in Pennsylvania fieldstone and features 24 oversized stalls, a foaling center, an owner’s office, tack room, and barn manager’s apartment. Supporting the main barn is a quarantine barn, equipment building, exercise ring, turnouts, fenced pastures, 1.5 miles of roads, and farm operations center with a circa-1890 farmhouse. There is a substantial amount of acreage for use as agricultural land or for the installation of a racetrack, polo field, or a dressage/showjumping stadium. This magnificent property is turnkey ready for continued use as a commercial equestrian operation and private family compound.
