As if in a place far removed from the scurrying world, Boxwood Farm offers a serene and pastoral beauty, its 9.82 acres of rolling fields, meadows and woodlands a true panorama, its three mile proximity to the heart of Princeton a startling surprise. Each addition to the rambling c1930 one-level house has ensured that its major rooms open to the continuum of a broad stone terrace meandering along its architectural outline. The elegant living room is dressed with a tray ceiling, fine moldings and cabinetry and a fireplace with delicately carved wood mantel. Adjacent is an inviting study. The light-filled dining room has chair-rail and crown molding and opens to a cheerful step-down family room featuring a marble fireplace. Wood floors unite the evolving floor plan. In the well-appointed kitchen, an imported ceramic tile floor extends to a delightful breakfast area and its charming raised hearth fireplace. There are two bedrooms with baths en suite and a third pleasant bedroom and bath. The spacious master suite has a bedroom detailed with a marble fireplace and crown and picture frame molding, a dressing area with vanity, and a bath with marble floor. The suite's large handsomely paneled sitting room/office is detailed with built-in cabinetry and a seventh fireplace. A breezeway connects to an apartment with a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath, and there is a one-stall barn. Offering further pleasure for this idyllic property is a swimming pool.
