Description

The charming, shingled exterior of this versatile home belies a view so magnificent it never fails to inspire a sense of calm wonder. Step through the foyer and into the great room to enjoy the sweeping scene of Carnegie Lake, alive with swooping birds, sunning turtles and word-class rowers gliding through the morning mist. Direct access to the water allows you to join them in your kayak, canoe or paddleboard. A covered patio off the walk-out lower level keeps gear handy and dry, but the best place to savor the view is from the lengthy deck above. Inside, hardwood floors and a fireplace are traditional elements within the vaulted great room. The kitchen is roomy and rich in storage with a darling window seat in the breakfast area. Down a hallway, 3 bedrooms, also with hardwood floors, include the main suite with more wide sliders and a private bath. You may choose to embrace the vintage tile in the hall bathroom, as it+GGs in great shape sporting a happy, retro hue. Downstairs, a second fireplace warms the central family room with several smaller rooms radiating around it, including an office, workshop/studio and laundry room, along with a screened porch. This home is offered as-is, but it+GGs easy to see how it can be updated into a modern, lakeside escape full of laid-back, livable spaces. Also of note...it's less than 3/4 of a mile to the coveted Riverside School and only 1.4 miles to Jadwin Gymnasium on Princeton University's campus and 1.5 miles to the Blue Point Grill on Nassau Street. Opportunity knocks, come see!
