    Description

    As one of Princeton+GGs oldest structures, dating back to 1720, this sunny yellow Colonial has a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. While the home is as charming as expected, the interior is surprisingly livable and the grounds offer a cornucopia of blooms, herbs and greenery arranged into garden rooms and formal parterres, all shrouded in privacy. The landscape designer/owner even carved a path to neighboring Stony Brook to complete the bucolic experience. Whether entering into the original foyer or into the expanded chef+GGs kitchen, antique floor boards and big working fireplaces make it nearly impossible to distinguish +G+old+G- from +G+new+G-. A total of 5 sets of French doors in the open breakfast room, functional butlers pantry and ample dining room give way to a newly laid brick patio, while a door between the beamed living room and cozy family room opens to a covered porch with new mahogany floor. Be it the garden views, the expertly crafted built-ins beneath a cathedral ceiling or the romantic en suite bath with clawfoot tub, the master suite is on par with the best room at a 5-star inn. Two more bedrooms and a nursery/office share a second bath and the same idyllic views.This house is located in a flood zone. An elevation certificate is available. The home owners of more than two decades, have never submitted a flood claim.
