Experience a luxurious, dramatic living environment at the Hart-Vorhees Farmstead, a late 1700s barn that has evolved into a gracious home with a mix of rustic elements and modern comforts. Situated on nearly 10 acres in the idyllic Hopewell Valley, it is as beautiful outside as it is inside, surrounded by carefully planned gardens so special they have been accepted into the Smithsonian Archives of American Gardens. Expanded from its original footprint, it is scaled to accommodate everyday living as well as entertaining on the grandest of scales. The main living space is rich in authentic details, including exposed stone walls, substantial posts and beams and sky-high rafters. It is one of the most richly textured interiors one could wish for with stone in hues of tan, gray and brown. A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace is oversized to properly fit the scale of the space and creates almost a lodge-like feel in the great room. A kitchen with timeless, furniture-finish cabinetry, granite countertops, a large island and plenty of storage is open to a living room awash in natural light thanks to walls lined in windows and French doors. To the other side of the kitchen is a dining room with fireplace and access to a butler's pantry/wet bar. Like the kitchen/living room, the dining room also has French door access to a terrace ready for al fresco dining and views of spectacular plantings, stone walls and other visual delights. The generous square footage now includes an office/library and game area on the first floor. Stairs lead to lofts overlooking each side of the great room ? truly a stunning view from either side. These areas are perfect reading nooks or lounge areas. Private quarters are upstairs. The main bedroom suite offers views of a pond, or gaze at the stars from the private deck. The suite offers phenomenal storage in the walk-in dressing room and in the large bathroom. There are three additional bedrooms and 2.1 additional baths. For recreation, the outdoor spaces are superbly designed for privacy with courtyards and terraces that bring to mind a great European country house. Cool off in the party-sized in-ground pool with spa and large lounging area surrounded by lovely perennial beds. All of this is yours to enjoy along with easy access to Princeton the regional airport and train service.
