Property Description

In collaboration with Max Hayden, the former architect owner of this Princeton colonial created a venue for elegant entertaining and functional day-to-day living. The original home was expanded and infused with personality through custom millwork, antique brick and a dynamic floor plan with sunken spaces that feel open, yet enveloping. Both the living and family rooms open to a blue stone slate patio featuring a fire pit and areas for hosting gatherings large and small. The eat-in kitchen is the handsome hub of the home with honed granite, double sinks, double pantries with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. French doors offer quietude to an adjoining office with library built-ins. While a formal dining featuring one of two fireplaces has been split to offer more functional space, it can easily be re-joined and is still spacious enough for holiday feasts. Oak flooring extends upstairs into a bedroom suite, two bedrooms with a shared bath and the ethereal master suite with cathedral ceiling and five windows looking out over the rear of the beautifully planted property. A travertine spa bath with seamless glass shower and a trio of closets complete the master package. Spilling out onto almost two acres bounded by Stony Brook in the rear, and flanked by four of Princeton's finest magnolias, the home has easy access to both Princeton's town center by bike or foot and big box stores by car or delivery. The home is wired for backup generator use in case of an emergency. Back yard is partly fenced too.
