Property Description

This extraordinarily scenic property offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a paradise on a sprawling 35 acres of unencumbered land surrounded by prestigious homes less than 7 miles from Princeton. With its idyllic setting, so much is on offer here. Inimitably special, it features a breathtaking series of rapids and waterfalls along the wooded edge of the property, 22 acres of pasture, hedgerows, grasslands, and herbaceous plants, and approximately 13 acres of forest. There are remnants of an original 19th-century farmstead, adding to its allure. Stocked with trout, Rock Brook flows along the parcel's west end and there is a man-made pond that lines the long, gated gravel driveway in the center. This property is neither preserved nor in a conservation easement. However, it is in a wildlife and conservation management program, which encourages diversity of wildlife of native plants and animals and the control of invasive species. This contract could be transferred to the buyer, and it does compensate. The opportunity exists to build two houses if a compound is on your wish list. Or you could subdivide the land and sell off some of the acreage to another builder, offsetting the initial investment. Whether your dream is to farm, enjoy nature, keep loved ones close, or all of the above, properties of this caliber are a rarity and should not be overlooked. The Hopewell Fault, a geological formation, creates the series of rapids & waterfalls along the wooded area of the property. Truly an idyllic setting to build your dream home!
