Lambertville’s Brookmill Farm: Formality Plus Lawn Chess

A 14-acre mix of quaint and quirky.

There’s quaint and then there’s a barn and covered bridge on your property, which strangers often rent out for weddings. There’s quirky and then there’s human-sized chess out back. This Lambertville home has its quaint and its quirky game on point.

The nearly 14-acre property includes a fieldstone and clapboard home, a carriage house, a pool house and a small barn. There are six bedrooms in all, and six full baths (plus two powder rooms). Interior design elements include stone fireplaces, wainscoting and exposed timber galore. Charming! The main home includes a private wet bar made largely of field stone, which current owners have used as a partial arcade. Quirky! The carriage house is just as lovely.

In addition to the covered bridge, the grounds at Brookmill Farm also include a stone-edged stream, a giant pool and the aforementioned chess board which is just adjacent to the tennis courts.
