About Blairsden

Blairsden, a 62,000 square foot, châteauesque architectural gem overlooking the Somerset Hills, is the Garden State's most magnificent Gilded Age mansion. Considered by many to be one of the finest examples of Beaux-Arts architecture in America, the iconic mansion was built at the turn of the 20th century for financier and railroad magnate C. Ledyard Blair. In its prime, Blairsden regularly hosted large-scale Gatsby-like social gatherings and equestrian "Four-in-Hand" coaching runs, engaging Manhattan's most elite families. In 2014, Blairsden reopened its doors for the benefit of "Mansions in May." 

After being vacant for years, FH Alum Anthony Melillo '99 purchased the magnificent property in 2022. Now, we invite you to step back in time as Anthony opens the mansion's stunning doors for Far Hills Country Day School's Casino Night.
