This home is nestled into a peaceful setting with lushly expansive lawn and garden beds, and it backs up to acres of preserved land. It has a classic feel, yet the openness of the floor plan and the gleaming hardwood floors will please contemporary tastes. The updated kitchen features granite counters and fresh appliances, plus a breakfast nook and work desk. The kitchen opens to the deck; beyond is the garden shed with fenced area. Mudroom, separate laundry room, and hallway half bath add welcome convenience. You may choose to relax in the living room with cozy fireplace or in the family room with soaring sky-light ceiling. Above, the master suite is bathed in light and has its own intimate deck. Three other bedrooms and hall bath complete this level. Up another set of stairs is a second bedroom suite with full bath: ideal for guests, in-laws, or au pair. The appeal of the area is complemented by the acclaimed Hopewell Valley Regional School District, which was given an overall A+ rating by the website of Niche. All with easy access to highways and trains, and to wonderfully charming towns.
