Description

WALL STREET TO THE JERSEY SHORE IN 40 MINUTES4350 SF TUDOR REVIVALMONMOUTH HILLS, MIDDLETOWN, NJ13 Serpentine Dr. Monmouth Hills in Middletown, NJ; aka General Charles Raymond HousePerched on the highest elevation along the east coast south of Maine with exceptional views of NYC and of the confluence of the Atlantic Ocean, Lower New York Harbor and the Raritan Bay, the Historic District of Monmouth Hills' most distinctive reminder of its early 20th Century origins is now for sale, an event occurring only twice in the last 54 years.Located on one acre at 13 Serpentine Drive, a private road, the home was commissioned by military engineer and Army General Charles W. Raymond after his retirement in 1904; a career that included his significant contributions to the rail tunnelsunder the Hudson River and the Panama Canal. The home's unique style retains its original architectural elements. Its design is highly original and reflects the influence of Raymond's contemporary, renowned English architect Edwin Lutyens. As reflected in the National Registry of Historic Places regarding Monmouth Hills, the General Raymond House is a two and one-half story, 4350 square foot Tudor Revival with a steeply pitched intersecting gable roof; restored in 1999 to resemble its original mottled, purple & green Vermont slate. The rounded peaks above the gables are intended to suggest thatch. Prominent on the facade is a pair of 6 light casement windows situated within the front facing gable. The entire exterior is stuccoed. The front and side facade windows are highlighted by decorative red brick surrounds. The Monmouth Hills Clubhouse, aka, the Water Witch Club, sits on a 1.4 acre site approximately 200 feet above sea level and drew its name from the James Fennimore Cooper novel, The Water Witch, after Cooper remarked about the area's natural beauty. The Clubhouse consists of a casino, meeting room, bar, billiard room, kitchen, pantry, dining room, lounge and 2nd floor bedrooms. Adjacent to the Clubhouse is the tennis court, also for residents' use. The Seastreak Ferry, 10 blocks away, offers a 40 minute commute to Wall Street. Proximity to ocean beaches on Sandy Hook and to private beach clubs at nearby Sea Bright offer oceanfront access starting less than a mile away. Yet within approximately 100 yards from 13 Serpentine, residents can enter the 1000 acre natural parkland setting of Hartshorne Woods with trails leading to the beacons at Twin Lights and to the Navesink River. Monmouth Hills Corporation Fee includes sewer & road maintenance (grading, leaves, snow). This is a stockholder owned NJ for profit corporation. $2500 dues are paid semi-annually to Monmouth Hills Inc.
