1928 Storybook Stone Cottage Sells in Princeton, New Jersey

SOLD | Built 1928 | 5 Beds | 2.5+ Baths | 5.62 Acres
348 Cherry Valley Rd, Princeton, NJ 08540

The ultimate hideaway in the woods is closer to civilization than you imagine! While totally private at the end of a long driveway, this storybook stone lodge is within the confines of Princeton, not far at all from top-ranked schools and world-class entertainment. Moss-covered boulders are scattered among ferns and pines on 5.62 acres, the perfect size to feel totally immersed in the peace and quiet of nature. Understood to be based on the widely published designs by noted architect Ernst Flagg, it is a superb example of the attention to materials and craftsmanship. Cottage-like from the outside, but far bigger than expected, every inch of the home is enchanting with casement windows and outdoor access from nearly every room. The foyer strikes a warm, rugged tone with brick flooring and a fireplace capped with a metal hood.

The library, sunroom and dining room are all memorable with peaked, beamed ceilings, but the living room is the most alluring of all the gathering spaces thanks to a big stone fireplace. Even the kitchen with its spruce-green cabinetry and bar alcove feels just right in this woodsy atmosphere. Three bedrooms on the first floor share a full bath, while two more share a bathroom above. It’s easy to envision the second floor dedicated entirely to a primary suite with all the creature comforts and closet space you desire. Another area ripe with possibility is the guest apartment above the detached garage, which lets you share the tranquility of this timeless property with anyone who might appreciate an escape from the real world.

Take the 3D Matterport tour!
