Property Description

A wealth of space, all of it spectacularly finished and kept in impeccable condition, surrounded by 8+ acres of trees, fields and lush lawns for a totally secluded experience minutes from central Jerseys best destinations: culturally rich Princeton, charming Pennington and the farms of Hopewell. Built by a reputable local outfit known for classic style and modern luxury, then professionally decorated, the all-brick house is full of memorable design moments beginning with a butterfly staircase illuminated by a perfectly scaled chandelier. Special details, like hand-painted walls and handsome millwork, inspired a feature article in NJ Living magazine. Impressively sized rooms with high ceilings allow everyone to spread out or come together as a group in comfort. Just imagine all of your loved ones sharing a fireside meal in the dining room. With double dishwashers, pro-level appliances and a sprawling island in the central kitchen, everyone can lend a hand. A host of amenities enhance 6 bedrooms, including balconies with scenic vistas, private bathrooms and custom walk-in closets, but the main suite raises the bar with a palatial spa-inspired bath, a heavenly circular sitting room, separate dressing rooms and more. A cherry-panelled office with a fireplace and access to a wet bar and covered veranda make the work-from-home experience far more palatable. Just as finely finished with real wood floors and French doors, the lower level is ready for fun of any kind with a party room, gym, wine storage, media room and loads of flex space. A seamless power, whole house Generac generator keeps everything going no matter the weather.This gated property with a Princeton address is minutes from a choice of renowned schools, both public and private.
