Custom built 13 years ago with top-notch construction by Garrison Builders and architectural drawings by Princeton's Cathy Knight. Situated on 6+ acres, this mini estate has a long drive that opens to a circular driveway featuring a stunning 3-story colonial and an adjacent two-story detached garage with finished studio space/guest suite above. The main house has a generous blue stone porch with curved iron railings that greet you upon entry, the hall foyer with high ceilings, tall doors, beautiful cherry hardwood floors and custom moldings signals this home was designed with meticulous details. The kitchen has custom maple cabinets, with granite counters, a commercial 6 burner stove with a carved wood hood, a butcher block topped center island with open book shelves, desk space, walk-in pantry and a side kitchen door and porch for easy in and out. Just off the kitchen is a well thought out mudroom featuring a powder room, coat and broom closets, built-in bench, a coat rack, a wood pass-through along with a back staircase to the second floor entrance hall. The dining area overlooks the kitchen and has a bank of skylights above the vaulted ceiling and is open to the family room where the wood burning fireplace is flanked by built-in china/TV cabinets opposite a wall of tall windows with a French door opening to the blue stone terrace with perfect views of the backyard. Off the center entrance hall is a 4th bedroom with floor to ceiling built-ins and its own private bath that is handicap accessible. A living room/den at the rear of the home has a French door that opens to a screened porch with blue stone flooring, a vaulted bead board ceiling complete with a fan and a screen door to access to the blue stone terrace. Up the main staircase, the landing displays custom wall sconces and a bank of windows with spectacular backyard views before entering the second floor. A front-to-back master suite offers a (never used) fireplace; the master bath has a cast iron soaking (claw) tub, oversized shower, and dual sinks with plenty of counter space, all decorated with granite and marble. A door to a screened sleeping porch with a vaulted ceiling is well aired for warmer months and offers many opportunities. Two more generous size bedrooms share a full bathroom and a spacious second floor laundry room has a hidden staircase to the semi-finished third floor with the potential of more living space! The two-car detached garage is set at a short distance from the house; the garage space is oversized and could fit storage of boat, motorcycle and/or a workbench. A side door and staircase leads to a second floor open studio of approximately 500+ sq. ft. with a full bathroom and designed as yoga space for the owner but could serve as a 5th bedroom guest suite or in-home schooling, office, artist/architect space or just a shelter-in-place get-away ! The grounds and setting are very private with majestic trees, flowering shrubs and perennial gardens. The home was built with the finest selections by the current owners: Marvin windows/doors/Toto toilets, Franke and Blanco sinks, random length cherry floors throughout, 10 foot ceilings on the first floor, blue-stone patios and terraces and much more. Owner has just over $2M into upgrades and design - this is a perfect opportunity to be in a custom built home in Princeton less than two miles from town, the University, the arts, theater and dining.
