About 225 Mountain Avenue

Honeybrook is one of very few true Princeton estates, sitting upon almost 5 acres, and tucked away in the Western section, so close to downtown and Princeton University. Designed by renowned architect Rolf W. Bauhan, this grand and elegant brick home is certainly one of his masterpieces. It possesses: an in-ground pool, spa, a lovely covered stone terrace, bluestone patios, brick-walled gardens, an attached greenhouse and a tennis court. A spacious and gracious sanctuary, Honeybrook offers a refined, yet comfortable, lifestyle, and features period details such as: richly paneled walls, intricate moldings, six fireplaces, wood and marble floors, as well as French doors opening from multiple rooms onto private terraces, and all overlooking luscious grounds. A superb entry hall welcomes family and friends, and leads to a grand living room/great room with a fireplace, room for a grand piano, and doors out to the covered terrace, lawn and pool. At the front entrance, to the left, you’ll find the original morning room, (or family room near the kitchen), with glorious views, from a large bowed picture window, of the gardens and fountains. It, too, leads out to the covered terrace, and the room itself is warmed by a fireplace with an antique carved marble mantel. Across the hall, one finds a formal powder room and the large eat-in kitchen with: butlers pantry, wet bar, two wall ovens, gas cooktop, double sink, prep sink, kitchen island, SubZero refrigerator and open breakfast room. One door takes you from the kitchen into the superbly paneled dining room, with fireplace, floor-to-ceiling bay windows and access out to another private terrace. The den, (or office), a second half bathroom, the rear staircase up to the second floor, as well as a laundry room, large mudroom and entry to the 4-car attached garage, are found just beyond the kitchen. A wonderful library/recreation room, with a hidden built-in television cabinet and fireplace, is found off the impressive living/great room, and rests beside the attached greenhouse. Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite, with fireplace, includes a walk-in dressing room closet, as well as an en suite main bathroom. Another four full bathrooms service the five additional bedrooms, (several of which are also en suite). Central air conditioning, newer gas heat, a full basement and the surprising third floor attic spaces are all additional bonuses. If you are searching for a rare Princeton estate, with easy access to town and gown, you’ve just found it.
