Historic Natirar Estate to Debut as a Pendry Residential Wellness Community


Debuting in 2021, the Farm Villa residences at Pendry Natirar will feature wellness-related technology from Delos.

As technology infiltrates nearly every aspect of our lives, it’s no surprise that residential wellness communities are leading the way with high-tech options that enhance health, wellbeing, and performance. Imagine if the home you lived in could actually help you live a healthier life. That’s the idea behind Pendry Residences Natirar, a new luxury offering by Montage, in Somerset County, NJ. Located about an hour from New York City, Natirar is a storied country estate with a Tudor-style mansion that was once owned by the King of Morocco. It is being transformed into a hotel and residences designed for farm-style living. The resort, which is slated to be a sanctuary of wellness for guests and residences, will feature Spa Pendry, a fitness center, a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a host of outdoor activities.

Pendry Natirar recently partnered with Delos, a wellness and real estate technology company, to offer residents Delos’s leading home wellness intelligence network. Debuting in 2021, a limited collection of fully serviced private Farm Villa residences will feature DARWIN Premier, Delos’s most exclusive offering. The technology optimizes wellbeing by:

  • Monitoring air quality and temperature and mitigating environmental concerns by reducing indoor contaminants that negatively impact respiratory, cardiovascular, immune, and cognitive health.
  • Ensuring cleaner, better tasting water with a DARWIN Water Filtration System.
  • Providing circadian lighting that mimics the patterns of the sun to reset residents’ natural circadian rhythms.
  • Creating spaces that help reduce stress, regulate energy levels, promote mindful living, and improve sleep quality.

The Farm Villa bedrooms will also incorporate Delos technology, which will provide circadian lighting to improve sleep quality.

Encompassing 90 acres and featuring a sustainable 12-acre farm, Pendry Natirar will debut the redesigned mansion estate as a modern-day manor with 66 guestrooms and suites as well as 24 fully serviced private Estate and Farm Villa residences. Whereas the Estate Villa Residences offer a semi-custom home-building experience with options to personalize selections and home configurations within a gated enclave named Abbey Road, the Farm Villa Residences encompass a true Agrihood, with a working farm as the backdrop. Owners can enjoy all the benefits of advanced home technology while also immersing themselves in a community focused on sustainable living.

Natirar, a bucolic estate in Somerset County, NJ, is being transformed into a wellness residential community.

“By working with Delos to integrate DARWIN Premier, Pendry Residences Natirar are furthering our commitment to exceptional residential experiences, especially within the wellness space,” says Tina Necrason, executive vice president, residential Montage International. “We are truly offering residents the most optimal connection to outdoor living and wellness management with modern design spaces and residential amenities that inspire the ultimate indoor-outdoor experiences. In the current climate, it’s never been more important to create a home that benefits owners mental health and wellbeing, and we foresee this being a necessity for buyers more now than ever.”
