Property Description

This one-of-a-kind custom masterpiece stands proudly atop the premiere property within a very desirable Princeton cul-de-sac, where no stone has been left unturned in its creation. Here is a spectacular sanctuary, perpetually abloom with lush professional landscaping, and 3+ acres that are entirely fenced, enveloping: a 50' heated saltwater pool with electric cover, spacious gazebo/yoga hut, grand stone patios, a hidden hot tub spa and built-in stone outdoor kitchen, all surrounded by natural splendor, lawn and gardens. Over 100 acres of preserved land, the Woodfield Reservation, abuts the rear of the property, providing the ultimate in peaceful privacy. As you enter the house itself, gracious interior open spaces, both formal and relaxed, showcase finely-crafted moldings, wood floors, tall windows, and custom wrought iron. The floor plan is open, bright and airy, with the formal living room and home office leading out to a magnificent mahogany screened porch, overlooking the pool and grounds. A stunning formal dining room sits adjacent to a full butler's pantry, complete with wet bar and first-floor wine cellar. The family room evokes dreams of a grand Colorado mountain lodge, with its soaring stone fireplace and beamed ceiling, while the designer gourmet kitchen, and breakfast room, adjoin. A serene spot, nearby, is the stone-walled courtyard off the sunroom, where you can dine and unwind to the sound of a trickling fountain, while the sunroom itself was recently renovated to include radiant heated floors, built-in bookcases, and stately mahogany doors. The luxe lower level hosts a media space with projection, craft room, full bar with TV, billiards area, game room, gym or 6th bedroom, two full baths and another family room with fireplace - all leading out to a covered terrace and the pool. Upstairs, rests a fabulously redesigned and fully renovated master bedroom suite with: glorious picture windows to take in the marvelous views, 2 large walk-in closets with built-ins, a luxurious master bath with radiant heat, sauna and steam shower, a peaceful sitting room and a private balcony. The master wing sits apart from four additional large bedroom suites, each with ensuite baths and walk-in closets, while the laundry room is found, nearby, as is a delightful 2nd-floor loft, with built-in desk and cabinetry, providing a great spot for an office or homework station. The 3-car over-sized attached garage and large mudroom with built-ins are just icing on the cake! Current owners have extensively remodeled, renovated, landscaped and hardscaped the house and grounds since their purchase. Recent improvements list available. A successful recent tax appeal reduced the taxes to approximately $64,000 for 2019. This is truly a special place to just relax and enjoy life to the fullest.
