Spacious and extremely welcoming mid-century Cape Cod on private cul-de-sac lot, smartly expanded and modernized for the needs of today's households. With its perfect proportions, beautifully refinished (2016) oak hardwood floors, and stylish paint colors throughout, this gorgeous and well loved home exudes warmth and invites you to relax. Current owners (one of whom is an architect) have made intelligent choices in renovating and upgrading the property. In 2015, all windows and patio doors were replaced by Anderson 400 series, and all exterior doors were replaced by Therma-Tru. The kitchen was renovated that year (and a Thermador range added) and the primary bath in 2016. The exterior was painted in 2017. Each room in the house is unusually attractive and noticeably comfortable, while the overall floor plan is both functional and flexible, with two bedrooms and a full bath on each floor. The family room addition with its cozy gas stove (2016) is obviously a favorite hangout, while the combination living/dining room with its gas fireplace insert (2019) offers a more formal space for entertaining. The breakfast room off the well-appointed kitchen boasts an oversized window seat, the third bedroom has a fun beach-y feel, and the fourth bedroom with its walls of built-in cabinets and bookshelves makes a fabulous home office. Upstairs, two oversized bedrooms with cedar closets and another full bath complete the layout. The home's beauty and functionality continue outdoors to the super private slate terrace in the courtyard between house and garage, and the large, fully fenced yard that backs to mature trees. Even the fencing and garage doors are new (2019) and look great! Located in the heart of charming Pennington, a small town with a lot of community spirit, this house is only a few minutes' walk to Kunkel Park, schools, shops, restaurants, professional services, the post office, two libraries, and many houses of worship. Outdoor enthusiasts will be thrilled with the property's easy access to the 19-mile Lawrence-Hopewell Trail, the Baldwin State Wildlife Management Area, Curlis Lake Woods, Rosedale Park, Mercer Meadows, and the Watershed Reserve. The house is fifteen minutes to downtown Princeton and twenty minutes to either the Princeton Junction or Hamilton train stations. It is 45 minutes to Center City, Philadelphia, 75 minutes to midtown Manhattan, one hour to the Jersey shore at Belmar or Asbury Park. On public water and sewer, with gas heat and central air (including brand new mini split system upstairs), this is a stunning, easy to run home you can adapt to your own needs, a home that can represent your own personal sanctuary. All you have to do is move in and enjoy!
