Located in the western section of Princeton's Brookstone neighborhood and set on a sunny and partially treed 2+ acre lot with beautiful grounds and an inground pool. This classic colonial with a portico porch opens to a center entrance hall flanked by a large formal dining room with an elegant marble fireplace on the right and a similar sized formal living room on the left, both rooms offer bay windows with views of the expansive front lawn. From the living room, a set of glass French doors lead into a handsome library with a window-seat and custom built-in bookcases. The back of the house boasts various additions through the years that now includes an open concept kitchen complete with desk space and a center island with a wine refrigerator, a vegetable sink and seating for four or more. White perimeter cabinets with granite counters mix well with stainless steel appliances consisting of a Thermador cooktop, Thermador warming drawer, Miele dishwasher, dual wall ovens and an LG refrigerator. The removal of a wall opens the kitchen into the skylit family room on one side, and a delightful sitting area and breakfast room at the opposite end, giving a spacious feel to the kitchen with fabulous backyard and pool views. Two sets of French doors from the family room and breakfast room lead to the patio, pool and gardens. The addition of a second (informal) powder room easily services the pool and the smartly designed laundry area and mudroom act as a grand-central station with coat hooks, closets, cubicles that aid in the stowing of sports equipment, bookbags and briefcases along with a cork-board message center. The installation of a second staircase leads to a 5th or 6th bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, fireplace and its own full bath (this space could also be a perfect upstairs great room, guest room, in-law or au pair suite) three to four more bedrooms share two full hall baths and the primary bedroom has an updated primary bathroom with a walk-in closet. Gorgeous hardwood floors are found on both levels and tile flooring in all the bathrooms and mudroom area which is perfect for the pitter-patter of wet feet from the pool to the powder room. The lower level is finished into one large open space and the unfinished area is reserved for storage. The grounds are meticulously cared for where a heated gunite pool and patio take center stage and is enhanced by a fully fenced rear yard with raised beds, lawns, trees and a hammock for lazy summer days. Flowering trees and shrubs make for a private and peaceful oasis where coming home will be your own slice of heaven. An easy sidewalk stroll or bike ride to town where dining, shopping, culture and the University are waiting to amuse and entertain you.
