This seven-bedroom home on 16-acres in Harding Township, NJ, doesn’t look much like the typical country estate. Asking $4,975,000, the 14,000-square-foot home was designed by Gwathmey Siegel, the renowned architecture firm behind the renovation of the Guggenheim Museum. The firm is known for the late 20th-century modern style showcased in the curves and colors of this striking residence at 75 Sand Spring Road. When you’re finished marveling at the house, you’ll find plenty to do within, where there’s a full recreation room, a well-appointed gym, and a half-court basketball court. Also on the property: a guest cottage, a pool, and a lighted tennis court.

At the center of the house is a stunning great room with geometric curves framed by glass and topped by a massive skylight. The home’s art and furniture echo the home’s architectural style.

Filled with light, spaces flow from private retreats to sprawling gathering spots. The center of the home is open, so the top floor hallway is visible from below.

The sleek, modern kitchen follows the home’s geometry, with a curving wood island anchoring dark wood cabinetry and granite worktops. Appliances fit seamlessly in-between.

A hallway library overlooking the gym leads to a wood-paneled office. The upstairs hallway curves around the floor and looks down on the great room below.

The home’s primary bedroom has built-in cabinetry that echoes the home’s design. The master bath is a study in curves and gleaming stainless steel, with fixtures that reflect the geometry of the stunning suite. The home has seven bedrooms in all.

More vacation retreat than everyday home, the fun begins with a full recreation center with a kitchen, media facilities, dining booth, and pool table. A ball court and full exercise room and sauna keep everyone in shape. The sprawling grounds offer a grass tennis court lighted for evening play.

An outdoor pool complex offers a guest cottage with a kitchen, changing rooms, and bath. There’s also a rooftop terrace for less athletic entertaining.

The home also offers six garage bays. This unusual country retreat is just 35 miles from Midtown Manhattan and a 10-minute drive to Newark Airport.
