Circa 1910 Meets 2017 ? This in-town colonial, with the original Federal-style roofline corbels restored, is perhaps the very definition of today's transitional practicality & the ideal of form following function. Nearing completion of a thorough re-creation, the home is poised to retake its place on Main St. w/front porch seats to Pennington's Parades. Entering from the columned porch, which is nicely set back from the street across a generous front lawn, the interior rebuild is transformative. The original front parlor, with its sliding barn door accent, is both discrete & welcoming while belying the open-concept living spaces beyond. The richly finished hardwood floors anchors the free flowing feel of this significantly expanded home, which is almost double its original size. Centered & towards the rear of the light-filled central core of the home is the state-of-the-art kitchen, which is its own gallery of culinary grace & function. Classic white cabinetry wraps the perimeter & anchors the generous granite topped island & countertops. S/S appliances; a white porcelain farmhouse sink; 6 burner gas cooktop, pot-filler spigot & commercial hood, beverage center; generous installations of windows and a practical footprint are inspiring. Further warming the space's elegant flow is the gas-fired, brick tiled fireplace, across from an open balustrade staircase & wall of windows. Upstairs, the sense of quiet elegance is continued in each of the 4 bedrooms. The master suite, w/vaulted ceiling & wall of closets, is warmly complemented by the custom en-suite bath with free standing soaking tub, mosaic tile work & dual vanities. The two bright & light hall bedrooms share a crisply custom full bath, with a fourth bedroom, a few steps down, having its own en suite bath ? an ideal au-pair arrangement. The newly poured concrete foundation is professionally finished, adding an additional 600 sf of flexible living space. This concept of a comprehensive "roots to rafters" re-build continues outside as well, which includes a brand new oversized 2-car garage with significant fly-space storage capacity and fully re-landscaped grounds, courtesy of Kale's Nursery of Princeton. The HardiePlank exterior, new roof, windows, wiring & plumbing only begin to convey the undertaking. A pleasant walk to Tollgate, Parks, 10 minutes to Princeton and easy access to Routes 95, 1, 295 and train stations.
