Single Family Home

Toward the end of a private lane, a bountiful paradise known as Hollybrook Farm is nestled among walnut and almond trees, towering pines, tulip trees, Japanese maples and, of course, hollies. Garden walls of native stone and gentle brooks edge the 6-acre property, 5 of which are farm assessed. An orchard bearing pears, cherries, apples and plums and a prolific blueberry patch yield more than enough fruit to keep, share and sell. Two residences, the Southampton-inspired main house and a converted barn guesthouse, retain the original wood and stonework of their charming 1950's predecessors. Beginning with a wraparound porch, the main house was greatly expanded. The first floor features open beams, knotty pine paneling, pegged wood floors and a double-sided stone fireplace. The roomy kitchen, complete with Viking range, a guest suite and an indispensable mudroom are some of the modern additions that blend effortlessly. Just above, a study space leads to a huge bonus room that hosts billiards, movies nights, sleepovers and more. The master suite, one of four upper bedrooms, is set apart by its extra amenities, including radiant heat, a spa bath, a deck and a lofty retreat with office and studio. The basement presents more space for exercise and play. Pursue hobbies and complete projects out in the barn's workshop, where hidden compartments await discovery within the thick stone walls. In-laws and guests will love having their very own self-sufficient space, complete with a sun deck, two bedrooms and its own stone fireplace in the open living area. Live the life of a gentleman farmer at Princeton's edge in Lawrence Township.
