Property Description

When an award-winning architect and an avid gardener tackle a whole home renovation together the result is nothing short of spectacular. They took a charming Dutch Colonial with vintage roots and more than tripled the size, while adding modern functionality using materials of the highest caliber. At one of the highest points on The Princeton Ridge, the 1.5-acre yard with stone paths winding through a secret garden basks in the shade of a majestic elm, oaks and sycamores. The bluestone terrace with limestone octagonal fountain is a haven for relaxation and entertaining. A picturesque shed with custom oak cabinetry worthy of Martha Stewart keeps gardening gear at the ready. The house is a host~s dream with a huge, smartly planned kitchen outfitted with Amish-made tiger maple cabinetry and a suite of Sub Zero and Miele appliances. If it seems familiar, you may have admired it while featured on the masthead of the Wall Street Journal. Period mantels, custom built-ins and antique lighting turn each of the gathering rooms into unforgettable works of art. With a deck, gym, lavishly appointed bathroom, custom closets and a striking circular window, the master suite will not disappoint. There are 2 more bedrooms, an office and existing plans to create a second suite.
