Although it has grown over the years, this 19th century farmhouse remains true to its soul and organic to its setting, a privately situated 4-acre plot surrounded by preserved land and unlike any other in Princeton Township. Rustic stone walls edge terraces overlooking a tree-dotted lawn stretching down to a pond and thatch-roof teahouse hidden by the landscape. Completing the scene, a classic red barn accommodates cars, a studio, and separate office warmed by a wood stove. Follow a stone path to a side entry into the seamlessly added dining room topped with exposed beams to mimic those of the original kitchen, now updated with stainless appliances. Wide pumpkin pine floors extend into the living room, where the past and present unite. One side is intimate, while the other dramatically opens to a two-story atrium. Beyond the fireplace, a handsome library is fitted with bookcases and French doors. A cathedral bedroom, sitting room with lovely view and full bath combine for a marvelous guest or master wing.
