Description

Constructed by the present owners in 2003, this custom-built property was designed to accommodate extensive social gatherings while offering resort-like amenities for both relaxation and athletic activities. Situated on two woodsy acres, the residence boasts a full brick exterior with an expansive rear stone balcony overlooking the sloping terrain leading to the picturesque Stony Brook. Enter the grand entrance foyer adorned with a floating staircase and captivating vistas, where expansive floor-to-ceiling windows seamlessly merge the interior with the natural surroundings. Adjacent the foyer, the formal dining room sets the stage for refined dining with a side wet bar, while the contemporary kitchen impressess with its array of commercial grade appliances catering to the culinary enthusiasts. A circular breakfast room is enveloped by a window seat providing panoramic views of the backyard landscape. Just off the kitchen, the sunken living room exudes elegance with its cozy fireplace and stunning views of the interior architecture with easy access to the exterior open air balcony through sets of French doors. A private front study offers a tranquil retreat for work, adding a touch of seclusion when needed. The first floor primary suite was intentionally designed to receive the gentle wakening of the morning sun with a generous size bathroom and dual walk-in closets. At the opposite end of this level is a second entry which serves as a mudroom with access to a walk-in closet, a laundry room, powder room, the three car attached garage and a second staircase to the lower level. Ascending the floating staircase to the upper level unveils a striking bridge spanning the east and west wings-each wing offers two bedrooms adjoined by thoughtfully appointed bathrooms between them. The eastern wing has a family room with a gas fireplace that serves as a gathering space for the four bedrooms while overlooking the living room below. Dual staircases from the first level lead to the 3,200 sq.ft. walkout basement which is column free due to the installation of steel beams and offers twelve foot high ceilings. This level has three distinct areas: a gym, a large 60 x 30 open space (complete with a bar, pool table, a dance floor and a second kitchen) and a mother-in-law suite with a private entrance consisting of a kitchen/living room combo, one bedroom and a full bath with laundry. From the center open space room, sets of French doors lead to a large paver stone patio covered by the balcony above for outdoor entertainment and relaxation in equal measures. The patio offers the ideal setting for al fresco gatherings whether hosting lively basketball games (could transform into a pickle ball court) or leisurely outdoor meals. A putting green and driving range beckon golf enthusiasts to hone their skills amongst the serene surroundings. With the freedom to unleash countles golf balls into the lush woods, this feature adds a playful element to the outdoor experience, promising endless entertainment and laughter. Whether engaging in spirited sports competitions or enjoying moments of tranquility this outdoor haven promises boundless enjoyment for all. Minutes to the university town of Princeton for shopping,dining, theater or simple luxuries of gourmet ice cream parlors and coffee shops.
