Be marveled by this enclave situated on 20+ acres with rolling roads, common open courtyards, kissed by trees everywhere you look and just a few yards away to a path entering the beautiful 142 acre Herrontown Woods Arboretum.. This special home exudes taste, grace and warmth. The home has 4 levels of living all connected with a wide circular staircase as you move from one level to the next. All can enter the home from a brick entrance way at the front door or via the brick patio at the back door. The front entrance welcomes you into the ceramic tile floored foyer (20ft x 6ft) where you can move to the living room flooded with natural light and accented with wide ceiling molding, hardwood floors and an impressive wood burning fireplace with a designer relief mantle and ceramic surround. Let us move across the foyer to the grand dining room offering you more natural light screaming thru the huge bay window and reflecting off the rich hardwood floors. As you sit in the dining room you can sit at the breakfast bar that permits you to peak into the renovated kitchen with offers JennAir stainless steel appliances including a side by side refrigerator, 5 gas burner stove and JennAir Conventional oven with a stainless steel exhaust hood, microwave oven, dishwasher, trash compactor and an EXTRA large Marvel beverage cooler with a glass face permitting you to know if what you want is still available. This gourmet kitchen has cabinets galore to store all your cooking needs and is highlighted by a beautiful backsplash that brings this gorgeous design all together. This main level is finished with a renovated half bath, bigger than most, with a beautiful cabinet sink with high end counter and fixtures. Now you must decide if you want to wander down to the finished basement with composite wood floors, built in book shelves and watch a video, play a game of pool, put a puzzle together, o


r maybe you want to go the 2nd level of living space which offers you the master bedroom, the master bath and a 2nd bedroom though most use this space as the master den and make the entire 2nd level the master suite. Your choice. This open layout permits one to orchestrate the space that best fits their needs. The bedroom sits off a long hallway (19ft x 6ft) that has an abundance of closets. This hallway connects you to the 2nd full bath on this level that could be used by the occupant of the 2nd bedroom or just make it his and hers. The bedroom/den has built in shelves and desk space along with the 2nd wood burning fireplace with as an attractive mantle as you saw downstairs in the living room. This entire floor is highlighted by wide ceiling molding, designer chair rails, hardwood floors, ceramic tile in both baths and carpet in the master. As you wander up to the top level you will have noticed that each landing is expansive (10ft x 5ft) and where ever you look you see tastefully done molding highlights in each room and each stairway. As you move up to the top level you will note all the hardwood stairs are apportioned with a wide carpet runner from main level to the top level. The top floor offers you another wide landing, highlighted by a skylight, and 2 more bedrooms as well as your third full bath. The bedrooms on this level are a nice size and offer mush more than boring square or rectangular rooms. One needs to see these rooms to better appreciate what I am trying to say. Matter of fact one needs to see this home to understand that this is a rare opportunity to purchase such a magnificent home located in a quiet well maintained Princeton community that is just a short walk to Princeton Shopping Center and an easy walk/bike ride to downtown Princeton.
