In an idyllic expanse where Rosedale Park, Curlis Lake Woods and the Stony Brook converge, surrounded by 1600 acres of protected forest, Park Land and Lawrence Hopewell trail, 2 Old Mill Road is nestled on a gentle rise, taking full advantage of the beautiful vistas from every window of this custom-built home. Nicely set back from the quiet road, a long drive leads to the side entry garage and a meandering walkway leading to the front door. The two-story foyer is warm, inviting and sunlit from all angles, including a wall of windows where the staircase turns to make its way to the second story. Hardwood floors flow seamlessly throughout the main level. The foyer leads to the living room which opens to the dining room, creating a formal entertaining area that can accommodate a crowd as easily as it can an intimate gathering. The kitchen is expansive and cheery, with white cabinets and counter tops gleaming in the sunlight from the windows surrounding the room. French doors lead to the deck, making impromptu outdoor dining an easy option. A back staircase is a shortcut to the second level, while a back hall leads to the powder room, laundry / mud room and a closet pantry. A pair of double doors leads to the family room where a built-in bookcase with cabinets provides both display and storage space. Window seats flank the fireplace while two sets of French doors provide endless views and access to the deck. The primary suite has a tray ceiling, inlay wood floors and a walk-in closet/dressing room with built-in organizers. The primary bath has a large shower with extraordinary views bench seating, dual vanities, and a separate water closet. Two additional nicely-sized bedrooms share a hall bath, while a second en suite bedroom is at the end of the hall opposite the primary bedroom. The unfinished basement is bright, with many windows. Outside, the backyard slopes gradually downward, ending where the grass meets the Stony Brook. Adding to the already serene ambience surrounding the home, the gentle babbles of the brook can be heard from the deck and the patio, where a fire pit invites toasted marshmallows and smores no matter the season. While the location feels pristine and remote, 2 Old Mill Road is just minutes from Hopewell Valley Central High School and the quaint historic towns of Pennington and Hopewell, and a fifteen minute drive into downtown Princeton.
