Description

Perhaps the most visionary and ambitious project yet by renowned firm, Princeton Design Guild, this award-winning residence rooted in mid-century modern design is a celebration of fine craftsmanship, natural beauty and living the good life. Every inch of this extraordinary renovation is pure perfection and state-of-the-art, from radiant heat floors to retractable screens to novel storage solutions. Even the garage, naturally brightened by frosted glass panes, is flawlessly finished, heated and lined with cabinetry. Vast corner windows in the living or dining space showcase the incredible treehouse-like setting, a 3-acre perch above Woodfield Reservation. Sapele mahogany built-ins and paneling bring a cocoon-like warmth to the opposite end of the wide open floor plan. Ready for chic entertaining and ambitious culinary pursuits, the mahogany-clad kitchen comes equipped with double dishwashers, side-by-side Sub Zeros and a 48+G+ Wolf range. The main suite is a heavenly escape with a private sundeck, a wall of southerly windows, which only the birds can see, and a hotel-worthy bathroom beyond a fully customized dressing room ready for 2 wardrobes. A second suite offers private entry and climate control, ideal for guests, while another of the 4 total bedrooms has terrace-access. Imagine a home office with only the rustle of leaves to distract! A bright and versatile game room with tucked-away minibar also opens to the great outdoors. This perfectly-planned Princeton Ridge retreat is the pinnacle of casual sophistication and modern elan.
