Country living at its finest. Nestled in hundreds of acres of preserved open space with meandering streams and ancient trails yet only 12 miles from Princeton and 8 miles from Lambertville / New Hope. This nearly 12-acre estate is a truly expansive wonderland for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross country skiing. The natural offerings are beautifully complemented by a handsome pool and patio complex, well-established gardens, and a large barn, which could be adapted for stabling horses. Then there is the residence, which evolved from a circa 1750s structure at its core that is now a gracious fireside dining room, and grew with an iconic stone addition that has become the face of the property. More recently, the residence was masterfully restored and expanded with a marvelously conceived addition to host large-scale events, supported by modern conveniences. The legacy of the standards by which this property has been maintained and updated will not disappoint. Five generous bedrooms and three baths on the second floor are each arranged with a strong sense of privacy and tranquility. Nearly 9 acres are farmland assessed as "woodlands" ($35/year taxes). Four independent heating and cooling zones allow energy consumption to be moderated, and a silent diesel generator easily powers the whole estate, when needed. Easy access to Princeton for cultural, scholarly, and business options, and all of the dining and entertainment offerings of surrounding communities with their charming downtowns. Convenient access to major highways, airports, and train stations. Easy living whether full time or the perfect country retreat.
