As you turn off a stretch of country road aptly named Mountain View and wind up the private gravel driveway, close-by Princeton suddenly seems worlds away. When the Villa-style home and its fountain courtyard appear, you feel transported to an estate in the rolling hills of Tuscany. In reality, the sweeping 6-acre property, only 50 miles from NYC, showcases a distant Sourland Mountain vista. Savor the seasonal changes from the shelter of a rose-draped loggia with fireplace. Then come evening, enjoy the most magical stargazing around. Beginning with a set of antique iron gates, the home is brimming with artisan-crafted details and imported materials that add immeasurable warmth and unforgettable character. This is most apparent in the Great Room, where hand-hewn, salvaged barn beams are the perfect contrast to lustrous Venetian plaster and a shimmering bronze chandelier hanging 16-feet overhead. The fireplace mantle is such a fine example of centuries-old scagliola artistry, it was featured in the Wall Street Journal. Thoughtful considerations like radiant heat and clad Marvin French doors keep large rooms comfortable. Whether catered or homemade, dinner parties run swimmingly with 2 Sub Zeros, double ovens and chilled wine pulled from the finished basement cellar. Gorgeous mahogany doors introduce the private rooms, including a study and 4 sumptuous suites. The main suite has the most stunning views from twin Juliet balconies. Open the French doors to let in the soothing sound of the backyard fountain below. This special property with a Princeton address is simply beyond compare in beauty, privacy and craftsmanship.
