Escape to your luxurious country estate on the outskirts of Princeton, NJ. Nestled in hundreds of acres of pastoral, rolling hills, the homestead is on 3 acres shaded by mature, specimen trees, with 9 additional acres of woodlands and meadows, and bordered on one side by Jacobs Creek. A gorgeous stone house, with its oldest section dating from pre-Revolutionary times, is only one highlight of the property which was expanded and lovingly restored by a visiting Englishman in 1998. The expansion included a grand hall with built-in, paneled cabinetry, large fireplace and exposed beams that relate beautifully with the traditional details. Throughout the residence, the patina of yesteryear is present, blended with the amenities of a modern lifestyle Pumpkin pine wood floors, the original "cook in" fireplace in the dining room, five additional fireplaces, hand-hewn beams, and deep-set windows still grace the house. The master bedroom features a deep vaulted beamed ceiling and marble, en suite bathroom with full dressing room. Four additional bedrooms can be found on the upper level, one of which is a second master suite. The sanctuary of a beautiful, tranquil yoga studio with heated floor awaits on the lower level. Well-proportioned decks and patios, pool and spa, and extensive landscaping seamlessly connect the property and its structures. This is an enchanting offering with the main house comprising almost seven thousand square feet of comfort and charm, able to accommodate large parties. No detail has been overlooked to create a warm and entertaining-friendly place to call home. Approaching the house, one passes a large barn, the carriage house and an open shed, all sharing the oldest period construction (hand-hewn beams and dowels) and all meticulously maintained. The barn is an inviting space for entertaining but could be adapted into equestrian facilities. Explore the property to discover mature woods and a meadow, with a historic carriage trail and another leading to a hidden bluff overlooking a horseshoe bend in the river. Four seasons of private wilderness hiking, biking and snow activities are just steps from the back door. Situated in Hopewell Township with convenient access to Newark and Philadelphia airports, train stations, and Interstate 95. Only fifteen minutes from Trenton Mercer regional airport (KTTN) for corporate, charter and private aircraft. Includes whole house generator and option to purchase "Clarence", a Kawasaki Mule 4x4.
