Welcome to Turtle Pond Farm, an 8-acre estate located in Rumson, New Jersey, which will provide you privacy and a tranquil setting. Incredibly, it’s a short 40-minute commuter ferry ride to New York City, we are also a 8 minute bike ride to the beach clubs (Ocean) which makes it the best of all worlds.
Unique properties such as this rarely come to the market, especially with this quality and size. This idyllic estate is steeped in American history, having hosted American Presidents while also offering every modern amenity.
Access this family compound through private gates and follow a tree-lined drive to reach Turtle Pond Farm. As you view the lush acres, you will be delighted to discover a historic main residence, a luxurious pool house with saltwater pool, and a six-stall equestrian center with five paddocks and a riding ring.
