Natirar (Raritan spelled backwards) is the 411-acre former estate of Kate Macy Ladd and Walter Graeme Ladd. The brick forty-room Tudor-style mansion was completed in 1912. Following Mrs. Ladd’s death, a convalescent facility located on the property was relocated to the main residence, where it operated until 1983. That year the property was sold to Hassan II, the King of Morocco. King Hassan died in 1999 and Natirar was inherited by his son, Mohammed VI. In 2003, Somerset County purchased the estate as open space, preserving that acreage in perpetuity.
The mansion and a portion of the estate have been leased to private parties are in the process of creating a luxury resort and spa. The mansion is being renovated to become a 76-room hotel featuring a 225-person ballroom function center anda state-of-the-art eco-friendly spa.
