Sweet and soothing are words that spring to mind upon entering this modernized mid-century Cape Cod. Set back on its wooded half-acre lot, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is in perfect turnkey condition with its tan siding, black shutters and cherry red front door. Inside, you’ll delight in gleaming hardwood floors nearly throughout and walls painted in calming shades of pale blue, gray and cream. An immaculate kitchen at the heart of the home is outfitted with cream-painted cabinets that are lightly distressed, and a suite of stainless steel Jenn Air appliances including a convection oven/flat-top range with downdraft exhaust and a French-door refrigerator with freezer below. Casement windows above the sink and in the adjoining breakfast nook flood the room with light, while double French doors lead from the family room to the spacious deck. In the family room, a woodburning fireplace with gray and white tile surround and mission-style iron doors is flanked by floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves. Spacious enough for cozy armchairs, it’s the perfect place from which to watch the wildlife outside. Two bedrooms on the first level share a remodeled hall bath that features white subway tile on the lower half of the wall, a pedestal sink, sconce lights on either side of the tiltable mirror, wooden plantation shutters and hexagon floor tile. At the front of the home, the living room features wooden plantation shutters and chair rail and crown molding for an understated yet elegant touch. The entire second level is the carpeted master suite, and features a sitting area with built-in shelving at the landing, a bedroom with two walk-in closets, and a bathroom with glass-doored shower and pedestal sink. The spacious unfinished basement houses the laundry area and offers easy access to the backyard via a Bilco door. Closets throughout the home provide ample storage. An attached garage for one car completes the picture, with additional parking in a cutaway near the front of the property. Location wise, this home ticks a lot of items off the list. It’s near major highways for commuters, five minutes from downtown Pennington, and 20 minutes from Princeton. The road is quiet and a bit winding, which adds to the feeling of a country retreat at the end of your drive. And, for lovers of the outdoors, there are ample preserved open spaces nearby, plus Washington Crossing State Park, which attracts enthusiasts to its trails year-round.
