Property Description

This lakefront retreat has it all: a stunning view of Lake Carnegie, a totally renovated solid brick main residence, and a stand-alone guest house that offers an ideal work from home oasis in the coveted Riverside neighborhood. Walk down the Belgian block driveway and you will find a meticulously renovated main house with 3 fireplaces, solid hardwood floors throughout, and an open flow ideal for entertaining and taking in the view. You will be wowed when you enter the elegant living room overlooking the lake through a massive picture window. The newly renovated open gourmet kitchen features custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, quartzite countertops, marble backsplashes and plenty of room to entertain in both the adjoining sitting and dining areas. The main floor also offers a powder room and a formal dining room with French doors that open to one of two stone patios. The second floor of the main house includes four bedrooms. The private master suite overlooks the lake and includes a fireplace, large walk-in closet and a tastefully renovated master bathroom with custom cabinets and a steam shower. The hall bath features a jetted whirlpool tub and an upstairs laundry room. Both upstairs baths have radiant heated floors. The detached and newly updated guest house with 2 two levels above the garage features an open main floor with a full bath, kitchenette, a large living area and access to two cedar decks. Upstairs is a flex office/loft/sleeping area. The wide views of Lake Carnegie, large workspaces, and dedicated HVAC, make this an ideal space for guests, work from home, or creative endeavor of your choice. Rounding out this mini compound is offering direct lake access for your kayaks and canoes as well as a built-in outdoor grill. Walking distance to the bus to Manhattan and convenient to all the wonderful shopping and dining in downtown Princeton. Award winning Princeton school district!
