The Hart Vorhees Farmstead artfully blends the old and the new, creating a soulful and extraordinary home. The original bones of the home served as a hay barn dating back to the late 1700s. The stone and exposed timber framing reaches almost 30 feet to the peaked roof of the spacious great room, with light spilling in from all angles. Beams on either side were used to create a pair of lofts perfect for a library, office, or lounge.
The warm, neutral palette continues into the kitchen, which boasts honey-colored cabinetry and wood-toned granite. The seamless flowing floor-plan suitable for intimate or grand entertaining includes the adjacent living room with its walls of windows, spacious dining room with fireplace, custom banquette, and built-ins, plus a large office. The second floor features a master suite with dressing room/ walk-in closet, spacious master bath, and balcony overlooking a serene natural pond. Three additional bedrooms, two baths, a reading loft, and a library complete this level.
The third floor boasts a fifth bedroom or loft with vaulted ceiling and exposed wood rafters. Above the three-car garage is a spacious bonus room perfect for an office, exercise room, or craft room. This lovely home is sited on nearly 10 acres with rolling pasture, woods, a natural pond, gorgeous in-ground pool, and gardens recently accepted into the Smithsonian Archives of American Gardens.
The location also offers easy access to major highways and a local airport for private or corporate planes. To see more, visit www.glorianilson.com. Offered by Gloria Nilson & Co. Real Estate, Princeton; contact Anne Nosnitsky at 609-921-2600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
