ABOUT 5279 PROVINCE LINE ROAD, PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY
Stunningly transformed “Everlasting” rivals the toniest East Coast estates, yet is privately situated on 12 acres in Princeton, accesible from 5 airports. Under the eye of architect/designer Michael La Rocca, skilled artisans used materials of the highest caliber to expand, open and visually elevate the brick manor house and its grounds. Inherently a welcoming refuge, Everlasting also functions superbly as an entertaining venue with bluestone terraces that extend rooms and highlight the poolscape and spring-fed pond. Oversized bronze windows enhance light, most notably in the pavilion dining room, where pearlescent plaster and antiqued glass shimmer above an intricate walnut floor. The sleek central kitchen was cleverly planned with double islands to serve a single chef or a team of caterers. Graceful metalwork curls along staircases, even to the lower level, replete with screening room. Four sumptuous suites include the master with his and hers baths. A guest cottage offer as much autonomy as desired.
