Description

Green Valley Farm is unique in its privacy, its rural beauty and its exceptionally convenient location. Less than 4 miles from Princeton and near both train and transit stations, it is commutable to New York City and under an hour to Newark and Philadelphia airports. It is also within minutes of world-class schools and universities.Originally a pre-Revolutionary farm, it is a historic and gracious country house where the original 1760 structure blends cleverly with recent renovations. A pool is flanked by a century-old formal garden and blue-stone terraces overlook both. A great room with two story windows, a wall of bookshelves, a walk-in fireplace, French doors and salvaged barn beams, is the heart of the house and looks out over an apple orchard. In addition, a well-established vegetable garden supplements the local produce available at numerous nearby farm stands. The house is built for family and for entertaining, with generously proportioned rooms, two bars and easy traffic flow. It has been a campaign stop for politicians (the house has been visited twice by a sitting president), and has hosted innumerable memorable family holidays, celebrations and weddings. Green Valley Farm is a premiere Princeton property in outstanding condition. Easy to maintain, it enjoys low taxes through farmland assessment and has an energy-efficient geo-thermal heating and cooling system. Its long, tree-lined driveway and surrounding preserved land assure that this wonderful country home will remain a safe and welcoming family refuge in perpetuity.
