Originally built as a working studio for a well known local artist & antiques dealer, the airy space has the feel of a church with stained glass, large casement windows, gorgeous garden view, and a funky free standing claw foot tub/shower.
The space is still used as a painter's lair, but was recently upgraded to rent as a luxurious one of a kind escape getaway. Located on the 2nd floor of a detached garage in Lawrenceville, it is 1 block from The Lawrenceville School and 6 miles from Princeton University. There is complete privacy and the only sounds are the birds chirping.
Guests enter through a garden gate at the back of the property and have private access to the studio through a side door on the garage.
Interaction with guests
The artist and her husband live in the main house and are available if you need anything. But we do like our privacy, and make sure to give our guests the same. We have lived in the area for 23 years though, and are happy to share suggestions, directions, etc. There is a list of recommended restaurants, hikes, sights of interest, etc. in the studio.
Other things to note
You might see our adorable cock a poo Georgia in the back yard. Please be sure to keep the gate closed! And if you leave your door open, she might come up to visit.
We want you to enjoy and relax, but to treat the space as a special refuge. It is an extension of our home and our best guests are ones we don't even know are there. We expect quiet, cleanliness, no parties. If you smoke, please do so on the patio outside. And be mindful of the Murphy bed. It is super luxurious, was very $$, is easy to open/close, but it must be properly used.
