(The sunset photos are NOT photoshopped!!) The "Farmstead of Ringoes" is a highly successful event center AND RESIDENCE located on Route 202 with an incredible presence that provides a charming, one-of-a-kind setting for weddings and other celebrations. Presently booked through 2022 with inquiries each and every week, the property and business are offered turnkey with all equipment. Hidden behind a classic clapboard farmhouse that once was the elegant Muirhead restaurant and was featured in Colonial Home magazine, the almost-4-acre property houses a collection of 8 buildings with the rear boundary of the property meeting the Black River & Western heritage railroad line. The "Farmstead" train stop is where many a bride has disembarked to meet her groom, and where guests have been able to board to enjoy cocktail hour in the bar car. Nearby, the "event lawn" is a level area with two arbors for ceremonies. It's just magnificent as the sun sets! There is a picture-perfect, 100-year-old barn that can seat up to 50 for sit-down events or serve as a dance hall for double that number. Private from the barn is the "bridal suite," a fully renovated, three-bedroom Sears Roebuck kit house with kitchen and full bath and a barn and shed addition that now has guest restrooms; a "groom shack" with changing space for guys; a carriage house with a commercial kitchen for refrigeration and clean-up and a grilling "shed" for caterers, plus a wealth of storage for all of the seating, tables and other tools of the trade that have made The Farmstead a very popular choice for rustic celebratory events. Two firepits are set up for post-dinner s'mores, and a tire swing and dinner bell add country flair. The farmhouse was built in three sections, dating from the 1700s. It is now used as a residence and business office and has 6 bedrooms and 2 full baths in the main house, including a full bath with clawfoot soaking tub. The later addition is high style and formal, with 12-foot ceilings, plaster crown moldings, a gorgeous central hall with main staircase, great room dimensions and substantial millwork along with tall windows and pocket doors. As it was used as a restaurant, it has a commercial kitchen with true pro-grade range and dishwasher, two extra wall ovens and a three-bay stainless steel dishwashing station. It also has a second "owner's" kitchen. The earliest section, dating to the 1700s, has a gas fireplace and wall of built-ins. There are living and dining spaces with character at every turn. The property has natural gas, hot water heat. The location, minutes from Lambertville, New Hope and Princeton with easy access to the Route 202/I-78 corridor, can draw from both the Philadelphia and New York MSAs. An idyllic property for the very popular farm weddings and events category!
