Identified as Villa Martinet, somewhere in Midvale. Where was it?

Identified as Murchio's Stone House, somewhere in Wanaque. It has been said that a boxer by the name of "Pancho Villa" may have trained there.

This building was identified by George Murchio, great-grandson of it's builder, Serafino Murchio. The house was on Hook Rd. and would have been located very near where the southern end of the Raymond Dam now stands. This photo will be moved in the not too distant future to the section dedicated to the building of the reservoir.

On the bottom right of the above photo is described as the Villa Ramillo, Wanaque. What and where is this building?
