Craftsmanship is the hallmark of this completely renovated, immaculately maintained Colonial gem situated in the Edgerstoune neighborhood in the prestigious Western Section of Princeton. Enjoy this beautiful custom residence with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths that is low maintenance and eco-friendly, featuring Everclear gutters and two zone heating/cooling. Outside, the lush yard and gardens surround an expansive blue-stone patio with an outside fireplace, screened porch, primary suite balcony, and paver circular driveway. Inside, discover a new dimension in easy and convenient living thanks to hardwood floors, three fireplaces, generous interior and exterior lighting and a gourmet kitchen. As you enter the home, the gracious entry foyer welcomes you into the property and gives you a taste of what lies beyond. The kitchen with large island is a great gathering spot for informal parties. With the gas cook top and oven in the island, you will feel part of the conversation when prepping food. The white cabinetry is accented by the granite counters and oversized glass subway tile backsplash. Appliances are high end, such as the SubZero built-in refrigerator, Dacor oven and Miele Dishwasher. Note the farmhouse style sink. The breakfast area features two dresser-style built -in cabinets and a sunny spot with skylights for a desk and access to the mud room and garage beyond. Next to the kitchen is a dining area with a stone surround fireplace that makes a stunning focal point. To the left of the dining room is a bright sunroom, with skylights to add to the natural light. There are French doors that lead to the patio, with lots of space for outside entertaining. A step up from the kitchen leads to the current family room and another fireplace. There are French doors here that lead to the screened in porch and patio. To complete the first floor there is a bedroom and full bath. The primary bedroom suite on the second floor is an oasis. A cathedral ceiling with ceiling fan adds a dramatic touch and the gas fireplace adds a hint of romanticism. Beyond the fireplace wall there is a balcony overlooking the rear yard. Imagine having your morning coffee listening to the chorus of birds in the yard! There are two walk-in closets as well as two shelved closets, providing lots of storage. The ensuite bath is spa-like, with deep soaking tub, large stall shower and double vanity with storage. The second bedroom has its own private bath, while bedrooms three and four share the hall bath.
