Perfect place for someone who enjoys clean modern architecture and furnishings and is looking for a tranquil setting away from the hustle and bustle of life and yet only minutes away from downtown Pennington, which provides all the necessary amenities, food stores, restaurants, shops and drycleaner, plus much more, and is a 12-minute drive into Princeton. Great public and private schools nearby. The property connects to 2 different well-maintained trail systems and is walking distance to a number of farmer's markets. Only the ground floor of the house is offered, this includes 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a sitting room, and a sunroom that leads to a spa area with an electric sauna and outdoor shower. The primary bedroom has access to a private bathroom with a bathtub, lots of storage and a large walk-in closet and dressing area. The main part of the house is an open plan with a living room, dining area, kitchen connected to the mudroom. The living room has a library wall containing art and architecture books as well as lots of fiction. The opposite wall has glass patio doors that look out to a beautiful view. There is also a Steinway piano and a wood burning stove, with plenty of wood stacked outside. The kitchen is fully equipped with an induction cooktop, there is no microwave oven, but one can be furnished if requested. The laundry room is also on the first level with full size washer and dryer. The home offers plenty of privacy as well as generous common areas, very comfortable to be alone in or for entertaining. Plenty of parking on premises. The house is eco-friendly being all electric, with solar panels on the roof, and compost bins outback if you want to compost. If you want to know more about the property, please let me know. My 38 year old son, who is an architect, lives nearby and is available for any questions or problems.
