Distinctive Princeton has southern style
The Princeton is a rambling estate-sized home with a distinctly southern colonial flavor.
Families that appreciate plenty of space to spread out will enjoy having more than 7,000 square feet to play around with. Gathering spaces and an exceptionally large utility room fill most of the main floor. Five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a deep bonus room are on the upper level.
A backyard pool would fit in nicely by the ground-level patio, which is set one level lower than the main floor. In fact, the daylight basement at the rear has one room designed for storing pool equipment. Another is for dressing plus pre- and post-swim bathing. The basement also boasts a wine cellar, and separate rooms for crafts, exercise, recreation and storage.
Arched openings to the right and left of the foyer lead into the living room and dining room, respectively. The living room has one of four fireplaces. Fireplace number two is in the spacious family room, through two arches on the far side of the foyer.
Fireplace number three is in the den, to the right, next to the powder room. Sliding glass doors there, and French doors in the family room, open onto the column-framed, elevated, and partially covered deck - a great place to enjoy summer breezes while taking in the view.
A large work island rimmed with an eating bar fills the center of the spacious kitchen, where a bayed garden window offers a panoramic view. An even wider window bay expands the nook/sunroom. A French door there opens onto another elevated deck.
Fireplace number four is upstairs in the Princeton's luxurious owners' suite, which also has a balcony.
