Tucked back discreetly along a winding drive, this custom-built post-and-beam home is an equestrianâs dream, with spacious fenced paddocks, six new horse stalls, and direct access to the Amwell Valley Trail System bordering the 14+ acres of property. At the center of it all is a stunning home constructed of Vermont timber beams, sited to maximize the surrounding views, which include open space, three new outbuildings, and a jumping area. In the main living space, a semi-open floor plan makes the most of a two-story great room with vaulted, skylit ceiling, wall of windows, and a stunning woodburning, fieldstone fireplace with exposed chimney, and a spacious eat-in kitchen with white cabinetry, granite countertops and backsplash, island with sink and seating, stainless-steel appliances, walk-in pantry, and access to the no-maintenance deck, which offers a front-row-seat view of the riding field, and an idyllic setting to enjoy house and horses. A first-floor master suite at the back of the home offers a second point of access to the deck, and features twin walk-in closets, and a bathroom with two sinks and overhead and handheld shower heads. Completing the main level are a powder room with table sink, a bedroom in use as a nursery (with potential as a home office), and a family room. Upstairs, two bedrooms share a bath with tub/shower combo, as well as a sitting area on the landing overlooking the great room. In one of the bedrooms, a mural of children frolicking with dogs, horses and other wildlife fills a wall; the homeâs second mural is downstairs, next to the fireplace, and features a family of foxes. New to the property are three outbuildings: an oversized three-car garage with tall doors and spacious bays, a beadboard-clad office space on the main level, and an unfinished loft ready to transform into a studio or office; a shed-row, four-stall barn; and two additional stalls with their own dedicated paddock. All paddock fencing is also new. Nestled in the Amwell valley, this lifestyle property delivers gorgeous year-round views, and easy access to miles and miles of cross-country trails for conditioning and pleasure riding. For commuters, there is easy access to Routes 202 and 31, as well as scenic back-road access to Princeton. Professional photos to come. Fireplace was inspected when home was purchased and is fine, but being sold "as is". Current owners added building/barns/fencing/updates to property $360,000
