An 1820s farmhouse with some 1970s flair

Nestled into the gently rolling hills of a 30-acre farm in Ringoes, New Jersey, this four-bed, three-bath farmhouse, now on the market for just over $1 million, seamlessly blends rustic and modern.

The stone bones of the house were originally built in the 1820s, but the residence got an upgrade from architect Bob Hillier in the 1970s that has it an unexpectedly contemporary feel. Hillier expanded the home’s footprint by building a new timber shell. The glass roof comes to a point over the stone-clad great room, allowing unobstructed sunlight to shine onto a freestanding stone wall retained from the original house.

The use of original materials continues throughout, including a fireplace in the family room built from old stone. The house balances its rustic touches with more modern features and styles including a renovated eat-in kitchen, a covered patio, refinished wood floors, and the piece de resistance—a white spiral staircase that cuts a dramatic, contemporary shape against the 19th-century stone.

Impressed? 40 Lindbergh Road can be yours for $1,100,000.
