    Property Details

    Location, location, location! Welcome to a unique home that was custom built by the locally-known Princeton architect, Oliver Houghton, in 1957, and served as his family home for 50 years. A classic colonial, it exudes charm and tradition throughout. Situated in the desirable western section of Princeton, the home sits on a large, beautiful, wooded and private lot that is within close proximity to downtown Princeton and the University. Filled with interesting details and built-ins, the home features a Dutch door, cedar paneling, pine flooring, a four seasons porch off of the kitchen, a large working wood fire place, a spacious walk up attic for storage that can be finished, a tool/storage room below the porch with its own entrance, a shed and much more. With or without upgrades and renovations, this home is a gem. Additionally, there have been improvements over the years, including central air conditioning on the second floor, expanded closets, and a heated private studio/office adjacent to the garage. The result is a home that has, and will stand the test of time and outlast any home decor trend! The home is being sold '˜as is', so come in with your own creative vision and make this home a special haven for you and your family! Princeton schools, close to trails, parks, restaurants, library and the Princeton YMCA. Dont Miss!
