Sycamore Creek: a secret hideaway of unmatched natural beauty, private tranquility, and bold architecture on 31+ acres! For well over a century, the original farmhouse and its 3-story barn stood nearly unchanged beside two picturesque ponds and the gently flowing waters of Stony Brook. Thanks to preserved surroundings, the bucolic ambiance of the 31+ acres can remain forever this unspoiled. The artfully enlarged house, however, is far from trapped in time. The structure evolved from a rambling farmhouse to a modern showplace designed for displaying world-class art to an unforgettable venue for the avid entertainer. The striking great room by NYC-based firm Stamberg and Aferiat just benefited from the addition of a bar worthy of the chicest cosmopolitan hotel. Pull up a stool beside the massive original cooking fireplace or step outside to the new outdoor kitchen. A curved wall of glass in the dining and sitting areas overlooks the heated saltwater pool with stone walls and the most glorious pair of Japanese maples, just one example of the specimen trees situated around the pond. While exploring the property, you will happen upon a magical tea house surrounded by pathways, plantings, and a footbridge to an island–what a setting for imaginative play and outdoor adventuring! A 2-bedroom caretaker’s cottage is privately situated behind the barn, both of which are ripe with potential. This one-of-a-kind, property is minutes from Princeton, nestled between NYC and Philadelphia.
