Not just a forever home, but a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, this ten thousand square foot home is one of Princeton’s most architecturally stunning and amenity-rich offerings to come on the market in a very long while! Everything about this rural estate less than three miles from the center of town is exceptional! Situated on 19+ acres, set back upon a gated drive with two designated parking courts for service and guests, the fenced and well-lit grounds feature an extra-large pool/jacuzzi and two pool houses with a kitchen and twin changing rooms – each with its own full bath – plus a lighted tennis court nearby. Bluestone terraces and a wraparound screened porch look out upon impeccably landscaped grounds and a vast lawn that is fit for garden parties on the grandest scale - and that is just the beginning! Step inside to the flow-through entrance foyer with inlaid floors revealing arched doorways to splendidly-presented living and dining rooms with beautiful architectural features. French doors in the wood-paneled library unlock to a private, covered patio for a breath of fresh air when working from home. The informal rooms, reached via a broad gallery, include the dine-in kitchen with every accoutrement a chef could desire, the family room with one of seven fireplaces in the home, a sizable mudroom with multiple cubbies, and a full service butler pantry adjacent to the dining room. Front and service stairs climb to two upper floors. A suite of rooms near the second-floor laundry room and two ancillary en-suite bedrooms includes a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and a hobby space, and could function perfectly for live-in help. The principal bedroom suite is set off on its own side of the home featuring a luxury bathroom, private outdoor space, multiple walk-in closets plus a true dressing room with a second bathroom that also works well as a second home office. The third floor includes two more en-suite bedrooms plus a large playroom or extra guest room if needed. The mostly full-height basement houses loads of storage including a huge, organized pantry room. Absolutely serene, this home is in one of Princeton’s most distinguished neighborhoods and should not be missed if your search is for something truly spectacular!
