Located in Princeton's picturesque estate area on 3 serene acres, this impressive residence with its natural limestone detail is strongly appealing with its myriad amenities. Built in 2012, the home's custom design incorporates details inspired by English country manors and Princeton's University's architecture. The property's circular driveway leads to a courtyard that is perfect for accommodating party guests. Curved 8 ft double doors introduce the foyer which features an elegant 24 ft barrel ceiling entry with handsome crafted millwork and dual staircases. The open foyer allows you to see through to the skylit music room with terrace and bucolic views beyond. The foyer is flanked by a living room which is open to a soaring 24 ft conservatory with an octagonal dome ceiling feature and a gracious dining room large enough to fit everyone for the holidays. French doors with transoms open onto terraces from many rooms, enabling enjoyment of the property's natural beauty. The gourmet kitchen which is open to the 20 ft beamed ceiling family room is truly the place everyone will want to gather. It features a massive granite island and top-of-line appointments. Seeking a short commute to work? Just venture down the hall. There is a wood paneled home office with coffered ceiling offering plenty of space for multiple desks and it has access to the terrace. The six bedrooms were thoughtfully planned: all with en-suite baths (including one on the first floor), private terraces and walk-in closets. Have your choice of two massive luxurious master suites: A skylit 14 ft ceiling penthouse suite with large terrace, and a 2nd floor suite offering a room size closet, curved ceiling, storage room, 2 terraces and a luxury onyx bath with pocket doors. Also on the 2nd floor, there is a den plumbed for a kitchenette joined by a bedroom and bath that could potentially be au pair quarters. A high ceiling walk-out ground level includes a top-of-the-line kitchen, lounge, theater, hobby room, dining and game areas, 2 full baths and French doors that open to an expansive loggia with hot tub. Technology enhancements include security/cameras, home automation, climate control, lighting, sound/audio and phone/intercom, mostly controlled by your phone. A shaft for a future elevator installation to access all 4 levels was pre-built at the time of construction and, as an added bonus, there is a room above one of the garages that would make a great studio. The garages can accommodate 5-cars and include oversized doors and electric car charging. Enjoy travertine marble terraces on the ground level and 1st floor, all leading to a huge patio. The private backyard has a large lawn area made for outdoor recreation, with trails connected to a 100-acre nature preserve and ample room to add a pool and tennis court. There is so much to appreciate in this custom home - high ceilings, front and back staircases, 4 fireplaces, cove/accent lighting, high-tech systems and countless luxurious appointments. This home is about 3.5 miles to the center of downtown Princeton. A must see!
