Historic Homestead the Lindberghs Once Rented Wants $4.25M

New, 3 comments


A severely adorable piece of New Jersey history called White Cloud Farm was put on the market last week for $4.25M. Though the white-clapboard compound dates back to the 1800s, its most pressing claim to fame is the fact that aviator Charles Lindbergh and his wife Anne Morrow Lindbergh rented it in the early '30s while their home was being built in nearby East Amwell, from where the couple's first son was kidnapped in 1933, sparking the media frenzy that would eventually drive them into "voluntary exile" in Europe. Anne is said to have written fondly of the family's time at the farm in her eventually published diaries, and according to the listing, Charles landed his plane on the property at least once. Of the three subdivided parcels currently for sale, the 13 acres that contain the adorably, not-too-fussily appointed 4,324-square-foot main house—currently owned by architect and "gentleman farmer" Nicholas R. Carnevale and his wife, a designer of fancy cake stands—also come with a pool, a pool house, multiple barns, a five-bay vehicle storage building, stables, a fishpond, "numerous bluestone terraces," and a silo with an attached chicken coop. Take the tour below:
