Located on one acre at 13 Serpentine Drive, a private road, the house was commissioned by General Charles Raymond after his retirement in 1904. The home's unique style retains its original architectural elements. Its design is highly original and reflects the influence of Raymond's contemporary, renowned English architect Edwin Lutyens. The house is a two and one-half story, 4350 square foot Tudor Revival with a steeply pitched intersecting gable roof; restored in 1999 to resemble its original mottled, purple & green Vermont slate. The rounded peaks above the gables are intended to suggest thatch. Prominent on the facade is a pair of 6 light casement windows situated within the front facing gable. The entire exterior is stuccoed. The front and side facade windows are highlighted by decorative red brick surrounds. The Monmouth Hills Clubhouse, aka, the Water Witch Club, sits on a 1.4 acre promontory approximately 228 feet above sea level and drew its name from the James Fennimore Cooper novel, The Water Witch, after Cooper remarked about the area's natural beauty. The Clubhouse consists of a casino, meeting room, bar, billiard room, kitchen, pantry, dining room, lounge and 2nd floor bedrooms. Adjacent to the Clubhouse is the tennis court, also for residents' use. The Seastreak Ferry, 10 blocks away proximity to ocean beaches on Sandy Hook and private beach clubs at nearby Sea Bright offer oceanfront access starting less than a mile away. Yet within approximately 150 yards from 13 Serpentine, residents can enter the 1000 acre natural parkland setting of Hartshorne Woods with trails leading to the beacons at Twin Lights and to the Navesink River.
