From the Zillow listing:


Built as a luxurious respite for early-century business barons, Cragwood Estate offers close-in comfortable and historic town and country living one hour from New York City. The story of the estate dates from 1899 when it was the original location of the Somerset Hills Country Club. The commanding hilltop site offered an inspiring place for the members to gather with friends. Refashioned as a private estate, and completed in 1923, a grand Georgian-style mansion replaced the original clubhouse, and the grounds were transformed into an English park featuring a walled garden, graceful fountains, and open meadows set among the woods and ravines. Accessory buildings include a pool house, 5-unit staff apt building, offices, and farm buildings. The estate is gated and private.
