Welcome to a custom designed, finely finished refuge scrupulously built by Lasley Brahaney in a hidden-away corner of Princeton. A meandering driveway culminates in a courtyard garden carefully orchestrated to put on a splendid show of color spring through fall. As enchanting as the sun-dappled lawns, stone pathways and boxwood-edged plantings are, they can not adequately prepare one for the awe-inspiring Stony Brook views to come. Beyond the house, a stone terrace and deck hover high over the rolling water amid a canopy of leaves, while a greenhouse ensures the interior is adorned with natural blooms and greenery even in winter. From plaster-coated walls to perfectly patinated hardware sourced from a bygone hotel, every detail within is also worth a moment of admiration. A marble and limestone fireplace anchors the soaring great room crowned with a peaked, coffered ceiling. The kitchen, just redesigned by Katie Eastridge, features luminous quartz counters around a monumental LaCornue range imported from France. Coordinating built-ins and a wet bar bring the open family into the kitchen’s embrace, while deep aubergine hues completely saturate the adjoining media room for a cocoon-like experience. Occupying opposite ends of the main floor are the versatile, multi-room, guest wing and the decadently, yet tastefully, outfitted main suite comprising a study, a barrel vaulted bedroom with Fortuny-lined wardrobes, a mirrored dressing room and a spa bathroom topped with a metallic-leaf ceiling. Fixtures by Waterworks are fabricated to last a lifetime and improve with age. A curving, formal staircase, as well as steps off the mudroom, lead to 3 more bedrooms with beautiful baths done in marble and basketweave tiling. Multiple storage rooms, one with a safe, and a wine cellar with tasting room keep all your collections in order.
