To have your event at the Cobble Close Farm is to write your name in history. The Cobble Close Farm is a historic masterpiece with an illustrious past. Constructed in the early 1900s, the estate was originally owned by the Straus family, former owners of Macy’s department stores. Since then, the Straus’ and McConnells’ have tried to maintain the estate’s historic past in the face of a changing nation. They certainly succeeded, as the estate has remained nearly untouched. In fact, when the Straus and McConnell decedents recently revisited the property, they found an old Cadillac and Bugatti coupe still parked in one of the many garages!
Today, the Cobble Close Farm is a rare treasure. The French Norman architecture is completely authentic as most of it was shipped, in the 1920′s, from dismantled French and Belgium estates. Situated on 13-acres, the property is lined with prestigious gardens accompanied by historic fountains and statues. Multiple covered walkways, courtyards, archways, rod-iron gates, and distressed stone walls transport guests to the Old World. Grandfather trees and mature greenery peek through Parisian arcs on the estate’s walkways, and grand pines hang over cobble paths and secret gardens. Some unique features include a gorgeous clock-tower building housing 8 garages, multiple homes including a “Gardener’s home”, “Butler’s home”, and “Stableman’s home”, a private pond, and converted stables.
Cobble Close Farm’s reputable past has transcended the 1900s. As the estate has carried over into the 21st century, it has appeared in multiple films, TV shows, and magazine ads (such as Vogue, and Victoria’s Secret). Located in the exclusive Rumson-area suburb, it is not only in the neighborhood of rockstars and actors, it is also conveniently located just 40 minutes from Manhattan. Overnight accommodations available for an additional fee. Of the 4 luxurious bedrooms there are 2 King and 2 Queen beds.
The Cobble Close Farm is ready to continue its lavish history by hosting fabulous events of the 2000s!
