Minutes from the center of Princeton, Willow Gate Farm, comprised of a restored 18th century stone manor house, several quaint outbuildings and a Waterscapes pool on 16 acres, presents a chance to preserve a refined country lifestyle that has all but disappeared from our modern world. A gated driveway edging Princeton in Lawrenceville opens to an award-winning landscape design leading to a new portico entry. As much for its stunning decor as for its rich heritage, the house was recently featured on The Historical Society of Princeton's famous house tour. A hand-painted mural, one of many artistic accents, ascends a formal staircase open to the living room with 2 working fireplaces. Past an intimate library, the c. 1750 dining room hosts the original cooking hearth. An added sunroom and the casual areas, including the cook's kitchen, are infused with warmth and whimsy. Attention to detail is carried upstairs, where 5 renovated bathrooms serve a bevy of adaptable bedrooms.
