Description

Built in the 1930s, this classical brick in-town residence has been masterfully restored to perfection offering all of todays conveniences and expanded with a fabulous post-modern addition with architecturally well-integrated spaces. Approached through wrought iron gates and a circular driveway, this beautifully positioned house is surrounded by majestic specimen trees, perennial gardens, stone walls, expansive blue stone terraces and a secluded tennis court. A gracious entrance foyer with arched doorways and deep-set moldings introduces the well-proportioned rooms throughout the house. Enter into the elegant sunken living room with high ceilings and views of the gardens through multiple French doors with transoms. Nearby, a spacious dining room with numerous custom plaster details is sure to make your holiday dinners memorable. The original library and study adjoining a hearth-warmed sitting area with window seats and built-in bookcases was the site of numerous historic meetings during WW II. The dramatic addition includes a pyramidal skylight over a spacious, sun-drenched breakfast/family room with an exposed brick wall tying the two-story stair tower to the main house. Adjacent, a well-appointed kitchen with a large center island and top-of-the-line appliances is awash in light with a huge skylight crowning the space. Upstairs, the sumptuous master bedroom features a vaulted ceiling with cove lighting, a fireplace (one of four), lavish his-and-hers bathrooms and dressing areas. A skylight above a spiral staircase connects the attic guest bedroom suite to the second floor via a dramatic, enclosed glass-block wall. Uniquely sited on an acre of land on a private cul-de-sac backing up to 10 acres of woodlands, this home is one of Princetons few luxury properties from which one can walk into pristine countryside from its back door and into town from its front door. It is a tribute to the craftsmanship of yesteryear with all the modern amenities coveted by todays buyer.
