A winding drive leads to the majestic 7+ acre setting, where long range views provide the stunning backdrop for this classic farmhouse. Featured in Design NJ magazine, the modern design and high end finishes blend seamlessly to create a home with time honored sensibilities. White picket fence and cobblestone apron border the courtyard, where a blue stone walkway and portico front porch welcome you inside. Each professionally designed room highlights the wonderful views and architectural features that make this a true one of a kind residence. The open floor plan connects expansive areas for entertaining a crowd with intimate areas for coffee and the morning news. Well designed to incorporate ample storage, expansive work spaces and Wolf/subzero appliances, the gourmet kitchen anchors the first floor and creates the palette for the ongoing design elements. Golden brown veins warm the Calcutta Borghini marble countertops, complimenting the rough cut red cedar of the vaulted ceiling of the adjoining family room. A walnut countertop along the perimeter echoes the finish of the custom stained wide plank white oak flooring from top-of-the-line Carlisle Flooring Co. Additional architectural details include tongue-and-groove paneled walls, a floor-to-ceiling brick hearth, Hearthstone Soapstone wood burning stove, and high-end lighting. Custom built-ins compliment an adjacent office and breakfast area. The classically proportioned living room is flooded with natural light, and features built in bookcases, extensive millwork, and a wood burning fireplace with slate doors. French doors lead to an oversized covered porch, for gracious al fresco dining. The adjoining sunroom serves double duty to both welcome the day, or watch the amazing sunsets. The main floor also offers a marble-tiled full bath and laundry/mudroom, with room for Fido! The second floor creates a private sanctuary. The primary bedroom has an intimate outdoor balcony, his and her closets, vaulted ceiling and wood floors. A newly remodeled ensuite bath boasts a weathered oak vanity, quartz countertop with shiplap walls and radiant heated floors. Two additional bedrooms share a hall bath with glass surround and radiant heat flooring. There is an additional bedroom over the garage that can be used as a guest suite/office, complete with vaulted-white beam ceiling, newly remodeled bath, walnut countertop wet bar and private balcony. In addition to the main house, a large semi detached flex space can easily accommodate a home office or gym, art studio, game or hobby room. Four garages provide storage and convenience, and both the barn and garden outbuildings have water and electricity. This luxury property is tucked away on a premier country road in the coveted western section of Hopewell, yet an easy commute to Capital Health Systems, Trenton Airport, downtown Princeton, and NYC/PHL trains.
