Nestled on a 2.43-acre lot in Princeton’s Brookstone development, this custom-built French château style ranch features classic European architecture defined by a sophisticated brick exterior and a mansard roof. The first floor interior incorporates many craftsman details that are heightened by the visual appeal of tall, recessed ceilings becoming an architecture focal point in all rooms. Designed with privacy in mind, all four bedrooms on the main floor are en-suites and a full guest suite on the lower level, could make for a five-bedroom home for a total of over 5,000 square feet of living. The impressive marbled entrance foyer opens to an expansive living room with dual sitting areas, built-in bookcases/cabinets, a dual sided wood burning fireplace and a hidden wet bar is found behind decorative arched doors, that match the arched doorway leading to a study with a full wall of built-in bookcases and the shared see-through fireplace from the living room. Just off the kitchen is a formal dining room with a second fireplace and an adjacent family room offers a third brick faced fireplace. The chef’s kitchen is a custom design with a center island offering a Viking six burner cook-top and an impressive floating hood above, dual Dacor wall ovens, dual Bosch dishwashers, Marvel wine cooler and a Sub-Zero refrigerator pepper the perimeter cabinets while tile backsplash and granite counters enhance the look. A powder room is off the foyer with an open staircase to the lower level, a half door to an upper loft and a pocket door to close off the bedroom wing where a master bedroom with dual walk-in closets, a master bath with dual vanities, over size shower, soaking tub and make-up counter with large windows and a skylight above make for a well lit master bathroom. Two more bedrooms each with their own private bathrooms are located in this wing and a fourth bedroom, again with a private full bathroom is located past the family room making for a quiet guest bedroom. The lower level has a large game room area with sliders to the outside and a hallway to a fifth full bathroom, a second kitchen complete with microwave, sink, refrigerator, dishwasher and a two-burner electric cook-top. A large back bedroom with a sitting area has a set of sliding glass doors to a private back deck and a full wall of built-ins are perfect for books and collectables. Off the game room are a generous craft room and laundry room with plenty of storage space and a walk-in cedar closet. Oh, and did I mention that a generator was recently installed. An exhilarating blend of glass French doors and sliding doors across the back of the home allows the magnificence of the outdoors in, while a long deck across the entire back of the home sits above it all. Stunning views along this hillside setting encompass a treed view down to Stonybook. Have fun clearing the lot for whatever outdoor excitement you enjoy or continue as others before you have in preserving the abundance of a natural setting to view from your deck and ground level terrace. Johnson Park School District and a great neighborhood with oversized lots-just minutes to the Town of Princeton where the vibe is changing due to the pandemic and outdoor dining overflows onto the streets and sidewalk.
