On the Market: Historic Blairsden, a Beaux Arts treasure, was lovingingly constructed in 1902 as the country home of C. Ledyard Blair, a noted financier and banking heir. The 34 acre property is situated in the bucolic hills of New Jersey a mere 47 miles from Midtown!
Interior finishes include exotic marbles, rich woods and limestone- popular materials of the Gilded Age and most suitable for a gentleman of Mr. Blair's stature.
Picturesque gardens reflect the original thinking of noted landscape designer of the early 1900s-James Lyle Greenleaf (a very apropos surname, don't you think?!) The Peapack-Gladstone area is an idyllic area of the state long attracting the horsey set (including Jacqueline Kennedy Onansis) and other luminaries such as fun-loving financial publishing czar Malcom Forbes.
