“We were sensitive to the prominence of the home as part of the viewshed that people experience as they drive along Wemrock Road, and felt that designing a home to replicate the old home would be a treasure for generations to enjoy,” said Roger Mumford, President of Roger Mumford Homes.
FREEHOLD, N.J. (PRWEB) June 14, 2018
Nestled among spectacular heritage trees on Gulley and Wemrock Roads in Freehold Township, a brand new “replica” colonial home celebrates Monmouth County’s historic past. Built by Roger Mumford Homes, this highly anticipated new home incorporates the interior design and detail for which the company is known. Developed on land that was once part of the Crossroads of the Revolution in Western Monmouth County, the new home sits less than one mile from where the Battle of Monmouth (1778) was fought.
Upon initial evaluation of the farm for development potential, Roger Mumford Homes recognized that the highly visible landmark was part of the fabric of the area and concluded that a plan to recreate the dilapidated farmhouse, once known as the Boude house (circa 1860), as part of a cluster development was preferable to replacing it with a contemporary home. Today, a brand-new replica of the original home sits on three acres of property and is available for immediate move-in for $799,900.
“We were sensitive to the prominence of the home as part of the viewshed that people experience as they drive along Wemrock Road, and felt that designing a home to replicate the old home would be a treasure for generations to enjoy,” said Roger Mumford, President of Roger Mumford Homes. “We are now pleased to announce that this thoroughly custom home is complete and we are confident that whoever purchases it is going to love it.”
The farmhouse features front porch details and huge corbels on the exterior trim, with brick veneer superior wall foundation, four brick chimneys, Hardie plank siding and Anderson architectural windows. Upon entering, the home’s modern floor plan and substantial trim details are immediately apparent. The tilework, hickory floors, cabinet work, trim and custom paint all add to the incredible charm. A two-car garage with similar details is also located on the property.
“We really wanted to capture all of the exterior details,” said Mumford. “We were also able to save the existing trees located on the property, some of which are 5’ in diameter.”
