Just minutes from the heart of Hopewell Borough, come home to a beautiful retreat in the Sourlands, surrounded by thousands of acres of preserved woodlands, trails, and a friendly community of neighbors. This custom home has grown, through several additions and renovations, into a unique home of cedar and stone craftsmanship, 2500+ sq ft on 3.02 acres, conveniently located between Flemington, Lambertville, and Princeton. Enter the foyer to a stone hearth with chiseled beam mantle that occupies one entire wall and contains a pellet stove insert. Exposed wood and stone appear throughout the main level, adding substance, texture, and warmth to the post and beam construction. Off the foyer, the large office/library with French doors and vaulted ceiling has built in bookshelves and large windows. The kitchen, with oak cabinets, roof windows, and tile back splash is separated from the cedar planked dining room by a stone counter in an open floor plan. The dining room has a wood stove and its own cozy sitting area and opens to a spacious living room with exposed beams that cross the high ceiling and contains built in shelves, bay window, and a pellet stove inserted into a second stone fireplace. Both living and dining rooms have sliding glass doors leading onto an expansive tiered deck and gardens. A main level bedroom has an adjoining sitting room--set up currently as a sewing room--offering flexible possibilities for how these rooms might be used by the next owner: an in-law suite; guest quarters; or perhaps rooms for a returning student. The main level is completed by a full bath with large slate-tiled walk-in shower and a laundry/mud room with an entrance door. Two spacious bedrooms upstairs have high ceilings with fans and are surrounded by windows. One of these bedrooms opens onto a balcony overlooking the backyard. Both have substantial closet and storage space, one with a walk-in the other with a cedar closet. The elegantly appointed upstairs bath has twin sinks in granite counters, a walk-in shower, a tile and river stone floor, and an attached sauna. An easily accessible utility room with workbench is next to the mudroom. A chicken coop (with chickens) and a large tool shed are on the grounds. Central air, newer auto-metered oil tank, and NEW $45, 000 SEPTIC SYSTEM was installed in January. A wonderful and special home, indeed, awaits its next owner.
