Description

This newly expanded contemporary home sitting on almost 3 acres next to the Woodfield Reservation in Princeton has all the luxuries you need for sophisticated Princeton living. Designed in the mid century modern style with 3 full floors, it has expansive views to the south and modest exposure to the north, in the manner of Frank Lloyd Wright. The ground floor opens to a bluestone terrace through elegant custom glass mahogany doors; it also contains a large family room, three bedrooms and two baths and a skylit laundry room. The main floor above has a beautiful open plan custom kitchen, living room and dining room with windows on three sides. The top floor has a single bedroom suite with three rooms and a large outdoor rooftop deck sitting up in the tree canopy. This house has privacy galore and outstanding views, a rarity in Princeton. The systems are sophisticated; containing full radiant hydronic heat in the floors throughout the entire house and multi zoned air conditioning for full comfort across all three floors. A spacious two car garage and complete mechanical room with outside entry create quality support spaces; all new electric systems, generator, natural gas fuel, city water and bio-advanced septic system will provide you with trouble free maintenance for years to come. Here is an opportunity to possess what may be one of Princeton~s most awe-inspiring new offerings, born from what was once a humble mid-century modern house, but now thanks to the Princeton Design Guild, is a bold and artfully designed home with breathtaking panoramas and globally-sourced finishes. Step through the north-facing Mahogany front door into an entry that gives the first hint of refinement with white oak cabinets and drawers, a sleek powder room, and Sapele pocket doors introducing the main living level. Drawing first-time and repeat visitors alike to its wall of glass overlooking the Princeton ridge and its ever-changing vistas, there is a sense of arrival that can only be described as extraordinary. Rift cut white oak floors and floating stairs with cable railings, Kessebohmer cabinets, a large quartz island, and a separate breakfast peninsula are just some of the features that make up the extraordinary open-concept floorplan. Above, the master bedroom suite is for so much more than sleeping with a huge roof deck with south and east exposures, a dressing room with a closet system, a luxury en suite bath, and a bedroom that seemingly integrates the view as artwork. Additional bedrooms surround a walk-out family room and full bathroom and include two suites, one with its own entrance and private bath, and a fourth bedroom with cheery sun-filled clerestory windows. As precise as the architecture, the systems in this home have been thoughtfully laid out for the ultimate in comfort.
