Location and lifestyle are everything! If you're yearning for a tranquil retreat with easy access to Princeton and major attractions, this is the perfect spot. This William Thompson-designed center hall colonial has been masterfully renovated and expanded top to bottom by meticulous owners. The 4 bedroom and 3 Â½ bath home on 1.3 acres is surrounded by preserved farmland and Mercer County Park which includes the extensive Lawrenceville Hopewell Trail system. An apple-picking orchard on one end of the street and Mercer Meadows on the other with a vineyard/farm in between. Never to change. Priceless!! Enter the home either through the beautiful front door entrance or the side 'Friends Entry'. At this entrance you are greeted by a light-filled foyer/mudroom with heated tile floor, large coat closets, powder room, and a door to the 1000 sq. ft. 3-plus car garage complete with hydraulic lift & air compressor system for the car enthusiast. Off to one side of the main foyer is the dining room with custom built-in cabinets, fireplace and French doors to the patio. On the other side, a cozy sitting room. Head to the custom SpyGlass designed Chef's kitchen with Neff cabinets & moldings, high-end appliances (Five Star, Miele, Dacor), gas stove, 2 ovens, warming drawer, appliance garage, and tons of storage. French doors lead to a very private and expansive bluestone patio, with gazebo, overlooking a professionally landscaped backyard. Adjoining the kitchen is the breakfast room with a window seat overlooking the patio leading you to the fabulous great room with vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace surrounded by custom-built bookcases, and another window seat. Expansive windows and another set of French doors lead you to the patio. Take the staircase to the lower level to enjoy the media room/study area and also separate home office space with windows. On the second level, you'll be greeted with a spacious landing, window seat and built-in bookcases with more storage and four bedrooms, including two master suites with fireplaces. The owner's suite will 'wow' you with a vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace, and window views of the backyard and mature trees. You'll feel like you are in a treehouse! Next, fall in love with the two dressing rooms/walk-in closets with custom cabinets. The ensuite bath also has custom Neff cabinets & moldings, a heated floor and a large glass-walled shower. There's an additional full hall bathroom. All bathrooms have been fully renovated on this level also. Don't miss the large light-filled laundry room with a built-in hamper, built-in ironing board, huge linen closet, shelves & cabinets. Lots of storage has been designed into this house. The home has undergone three major renovations/additions with careful considerations to every detail including the outdoor landscaping that was professionally master planned and designed by Garden Makers. Additional features and systems include: a large storage area above the garage accessed by pull-down stairs; an unfinished area in the basement hosts a cedar closet and large workshop with built-in cabinets; Timberline Select Williamsburg Slate 40-year shingles; entire house resided with cedar plank siding; double insulated Pella, Crestline and Marvin windows and doors; back-up power generator; two Roth double insulated 275-gallon fuel oil tanks located in the basement; 4 zone heating and cooling; all interior walls of additions insulated for maximum soundproofing; well management system; built-in Sonos sound system with wireless connectivity in the master suite, great room, and dining room with surround sound speakers built into the great room; and CAT 5 wiring.

The BEST way to appreciate it is to see it in person. There's pride of ownership everywhere!
