Reduced. ~ What was once a humble Toll House is now a beautifully expanded, 2,234-square-foot residence with character-laden interiors. Snugged into a river-facing .73 acres near Cuttalossa Road with easy access to the canal path, this stone and frame house with separate guest apartment is a mix of dramatic and cozy, with carefully milled moldings, wide pine floors, built-ins and fireplaces throughout. Step through the vestibule entry into the front parlor/library with its classic staircase and wall of built-ins. Behind pocket doors is a great room -- the original toll house -- with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, vaulted ceiling and triple-bay window on both the front and rear walls. Behind is a series of spaces with radiant-heated tile floors, including a garden room, powder room with a unique sink (a must see!), laundry room and expansive formal dining room with fireplace - might Fred Astaire have enjoyed a celebratory dinner here since his daughter once owned this home? An updated kitchen is adjacent to a pleasant breakfast room line in windows. An exterior door opens to a patio area. A Shaws Original farmhouse sink with copper faucet, Jenn-Air six burner gas range with Faber stainless hood, Jenn-Air French door refrigerator, U-Line under cabinet wine cooler, Bosch dishwasher and pantry storage complete the well-designed kitchen. Upstairs is a surprising amount of closet storage. A loft landing leads to a bedroom with walk-in closet, second closet and reading nook. A hall bath with stall shower serves this bedroom. The main suite with fireplace is now configured to include a sleeping area, separate sitting/dressing room, three walk-in closets and a full bath with tub/shower, bidet and large vanity. Adjoining the two-car garage is a guest house (a legal rental) with a big main living room with high ceiling and fireplace, wall of built-in storage, wood floors and a bay window. There is a galley kitchen, bedroom with sliding doors to a patio and a wall of closet storage. The full bath has a tub/shower. Pull-down stairs lead to a loft area offering the potential for more finished living space. Additional off-street parking allows space for guests. Only 40 minutes to Princeton and Rt 1 Corridor; just over an hour to Philadelphia; under two hours to New York City. Only steps from one of the most scenic country roads in the state!
