“This is truly a home for sports enthusiasts,” said Caldwell Banker Realty listing agent Flor de Maria Thomas. “There is something for everyone to do what they want.” How many homes have an irrigated baseball field? You name it, we can do it right here.

The current owner bought the 14-room 1997-built home in 2000 and “completely transformed the house and property,” she said.

“The beauty of this property is that it was part of an old estate,” she said.

“The property has many flat areas and is well maintained,” said Thomas.

Neighborhood Note

“Fir Hills is a very small town,” Thomas said. “Yes, there’s a downtown area, but you’ll miss it if you blink.”

About a 10-minute drive to Bernersville, NJ, Chester is “a charming town with plenty of shopping.”

Far Hills has a train station and is close to several highways, she said.
