Property Description

Maple Shade Farm is a scenic farmstead with a rich past dating to the mid-1700s in a setting that is pure paradise on the edge of Hopewell Borough. The views are incredible, stretching across 59 bucolic acres and towards neighboring St. Michaels Preserve. A gated driveway rambles past an all-new lighted riding ring, five fenced pastures with a new waterline for irrigation, and a large pond. A Pebbletec pool and spa are surrounded by a Himalayan-cut stone patio with walls reclaimed and repurposed from abandoned foundations in Bucks County. The spectacular house, born from an 1850s English barn, a late-18th century wagon house, plus a stone house addition with a wine cellar, is an incredible reinvention of the past while incorporating the ultimate in creature comforts. With so many well-thought-out recent improvements, there is now a new state-of-the-art air conditioning system, new plumbing, a whole house water filtration system, and a brand new pro-style six-burner Thermador range in the high-end yet rustic kitchen that will satisfy any culinary perfectionist. Because of the traditional barn framing. conventional walls werent necessary creating an open-concept floorplan that will bring everyone together. The main level includes three great rooms. The first houses the living room, dining room, and a bar. The second unites the kitchen with a breakfast area and the family room, while the third is a wonderful entertaining space for the summer months with its multiple doors leading to the pool and grounds. Wide plank oak and chestnut flooring throughout the house and bluestone flooring over radiant heat add warmth and character to rooms. There is extensive use of handmade oak doors, all hung on locally designed handmade hinges and hardware, handmade lighting, plus solid oak and mahogany cabinetry throughout. A massive bedroom suite is the ultimate retreat with a fireplace, a dressing gallery with dual walk-in closets, built-in cabinetry, and a luxury bath. A second bedroom suite has a private bathroom, and across a broad loft, there are two additional bedrooms and another bathroom. A two-bay garage with a second-floor apartment and a new deck is handy for extra help, and a white oak early 19th-century garage barn can house additional vehicles. For livestock and machinery, the white oak timber barn, originally constructed in Readington, NJ, and moved in 2006 by the NJ Barn Company, contains two horse stalls, a large run-in area, a big machinery storage area, and custom lighting. This is an outstandingly presented offering that will be hard to duplicate elsewhere, whether your interest lies in horses or hobby farming or just the desire for a sprawling, private paradise to call home near Princeton.
