Former home of a NJ Governor, this handsome residence has been completely renovated and expanded, from top to bottom, by the current owners and Princeton architect Max Hayden. Sited on a peaceful 2-acre parcel, in a quiet Princeton cul-de-sac neighborhood, this house sits proudly on one of the most tucked-away lots, with grounds that have been professionally landscaped with mature plantings, bluestone walkways and an expansive terrace. A gracious formal living room, with space for a grand piano, is warmed by a wood-burning fireplace with marble surround and large picture windows, and leads to a private screened porch for lovely evenings. The bright dining room, with modern glass chandelier and a wall of windows and French doors, leads out to the large stone patio. Fabulous flow fosters ease of daily living as well as entertaining in style. Wood floors throughout the first floor, recessed lighting and modern lighting fixtures are clean and crisp. A home office, with French doors for privacy, is found off the expanded foyer, along with a renovated powder room and closets galore for clothes and storage. The creamy kitchen, with granite countertops, Wolf and SubZero stainless appliances, walk-in pantry, seating for 4 at the large granite island and an adjacent breakfast room, all open to the spacious family room addition. Graced by built-in bookcases, a wood-burning fireplace and French doors to the gorgeous terrace with built-in brick grill and luscious lawn, the family room is a marvel. A mudroom entrance for family, caterers and package delivery, is perfectly placed and possesses an additional walk-in mud room with built-in cubbies and separate laundry room. The first-floor guest/in-law suite, with renovated ensuite full bath, is found nearby. Upstairs, you'll find a grand Master bedroom addition with high ceilings, two walk-in closets, an additional closet and soothing bath with neutral color palette, soaking tub and large shower. Three more roomy bedrooms, plus two more full baths and a walk-in attic, comprise the second floor, providing wonderful spaces for homework or for relaxation at the end of the day. The finished basement has ample room for recreation, games, media space and exercise equipment. New roof and HVAC. Close to downtown Princeton, Lawrenceville, Route 1, and trains to NYC and Philadelphia from Princeton Jct. and Hamilton stations. Bus to highly ranked Johnson Park school picks up right in front! Just move in and unpack.
