Single Family Home

This gem of a two story home is framed by 1.73 acres of treed landscape designed for magnificent fall color, soft colored brick paver patios front and back, side deck, and asphalt driveway/courtyard. The first floor has a custom, open floor plan with a 38 ft x14 ft great room which features a stunning floor to ceiling brick fireplace soaring through the center of this chalet-like home. The great room boasts vaulted ceilings with three skylights filling the room with soft sunlight, a huge picture window with an attractive view of the length of the park-like back yard, and French doors opening onto a 10 ft x 20ft deck with awesome views of the western sky at dusk. The kitchen is finished with custom oak cabinetry and has a charming breakfast nook with a picture window looking onto a dwarf flowering crabapple tree. The first floor also includes a full bathroom along with a large bonus room which could function as a comfortable office/den/library/optional first floor bedroom. There are natural, high-polished oak hardwood floors throughout the first and second floor, hallways, and stairs. A bank of hidden closets lines the downstairs hallway. The stairs and hallway to the second floor circle along the textured, soft browns of the central fireplace's exposed brick and open onto an oak-railed balcony that overlooks the great room. The balcony fronts the exposed brick of the central fireplace. The four upstairs bedrooms and closets have oak hardwood floors. Three enjoy cathedral ceilings with overhead fans while the fourth makes a cozy nursery or reading room. On the west side of the house is the light filled master bedroom suite with mirrored closets leading into a airy master bathroom with dressing table vanity. On the east side of the house are two large bedrooms, both with large closets and access to the third full bath; the front bedroom features a stunning trapezoidal window while the back bedroom has a leafy view of the backyard. There is a spacious two car garage with quick grocery-unloading access to the kitchen. This charming home offers an ideal commuting situation from its location in a tranquil, rural setting: only five minutes drive to downtown Cranbury's school and restaurants, and ten minutes drive to Princeton Junction train station, Route One, or Exit 8A of the NJ Turnpike. In addition, the school bus to Cranbury Elementary stops at its driveway.
