Walk into the foyer of this expansive home and the view in front of you is a bank of six French doors and windows that bring the outdoors in, infusing the interior with a warm soft glow. Beyond the glass you’ll be awed by a row of mature, violet-hued rhododendrons, and just beyond, a Japanese teahouse pavilion that sits amidst a large shade garden under the oaks, spruce, and pine of the cedar-fenced back yard. Built in 1963, this multi-level home has a decidedly modern feel. A stone floor in the foyer leads to a spacious oak-floored living and dining room. Nearby, the chef’s kitchen is equipped with cherry cabinetry (including a tall pantry with swing-out shelving), granite counters, muted terra cotta floor tile and backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator. Cooking options abound with a five-burner ceramic stove top, convection wall oven, and a built-in Advantium microwave that does double duty as the kitchen’s second wall oven. Designer and recessed fixtures are throughout the house and light the kitchen and breakfast nook, which overlook the front lawn through a large picture window. On the home’s lower level is a large family room (currently used as a professor’s study) with two walls of built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcases and cabinets, a wood-burning fireplace, and a trio of French door sliders opening up to the pool and a sunny cottage garden. Adjoining the study is a bedroom suite with a kitchenette and full bath that’s perfect for in-laws, guests, an au pair, or older children. On the upper level, three bedrooms share a hall bath; the fourth, master, bedroom has its own adjoining bathroom. Both of these upstairs bathrooms feature black Cohiba granite counters, custom bamboo cabinets (including a custom two-level makeup drawer and built in clothes-hampers in the master), Toto toilets, and Jado faucets. The master bath also has its shower walls lined with honey onyx tile, twin Robern medicine chests with mirrored interiors, designer sconces, and twin undermount Toto sinks. Cedar fencing complements the timber-framed teahouse on the upper level of the back yard, built of pine and locally-sourced Atlantic white cedar from the Pine Barrens. The richly planted garden beds that surround it are watered automatically, as are all of this property’s gardens, thanks to an automatic drip irrigation system. There is a full-house natural gas generator. Solar roof panels provide free electricity and income. Improvements last year included painting the exterior, a new driveway, and new natural gas furnace and A/C units. Location wise, the neighborhood is filled with children of all ages who are here for the lifestyle and great schools the Hopewell Valley offers. The area is a history and nature enthusiast’s dream, and this house is moments away from where Gen. Washington and his troops crossed the Delaware, as well as walking and biking trails along the D&R Canal and Washington Crossing State Park. Commuters will relish fast access to 95 and train stations to NYC and Philly
