About 306 Carter Road

Every home has a story, but this is an epic tale that spans generations and continents with America's most famous Gilded Age family at the epicenter. It all begins in the French Countryside, where a chateau is dismantled brick by brick to be transported to an idyllic nearly-100-acre property at Princeton's edge. Once reconstructed, it's adorned with architectural treasures reclaimed from 5th Avenue's Vanderbilt Mansion, the grandest home NYC has ever seen to this day. Entire rooms were recreated using gilded panels, crystal chandeliers, mirrored French doors and detailed ironwork. The glimmering dining room feels like a jewel box and the living room's mantle is a marble gem. As impressive as this sounds, the view often steals the show, especially in the upstairs ballroom with a wraparound terrace high above meadows and pastures. Architect Ron Berlin expertly designed a sunroom off the chef's kitchen that feels both refined enough for the house and relaxed enough to sip coffee in pajamas. The indoor pool lined with French doors and a game room opening to the patio are more spots to casually unwind. Equine facilities, including an indoor riding arena with rubber footing and stables, encourage you to explore miles of trails and make the most of the heavenly surroundings, forever part of the D&R Greenway Land Trust. In addition to a 2-bedroom guesthouse that gives everyone a place to escape, a renovated 2-bedroom caretaker's apartment is perfectly placed over the workshop. The 93-acre property, mostly farm-assessed, includes a 40-acre building lot, already subdivided and accessible from Cleveland Road.
