    Property Details


    Fully renovated and extended historic home in downtown Princeton. Set back from the road, this 1903 house was expanded to provide almost 3700 SQFT of luxurious living space in 2019. Accessed from the idyllic wrap around porch is a foyer complete with stained glass window. From here you access both the bay fronted sitting room - complete with original wainscoting, architrave and decorative fireplace, and also the large, elegant dining room - which easily seats 20 for dinner parties. The bespoke black walnut shelving in the library is complete with an artisan sliding ladder, so readers can find a meditative space closed off from the house via a barn door. A full bathroom is found next to the library - which could be used as a first floor suite should you require one. From the dining room is a large open plan family room and kitchen; designed to fit your preference for modern day living it has a vaulted ceiling, doors out to the garden, focal gas fireplace and radiant floor heating underfoot. The gourmet kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including an 8 burner double range oven, Paragon Aurea Stone worktops and a beautiful, handcrafted Macassar ebony island. A mudroom off of the family room allows for access from the 6 car driveway. This 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home abounds with classic features such as 9ft ceilings, original deep trim and molding, decorative fireplaces (non-working) and wood floors, all of which give this light filled home character. On the second floor the primary suite has a large bedroom, walk-in closet fitted with cedar shelving, ensuite bathroom and a private, quiet office - radiant flooring in the office and bathroom will keep you warm during winter months. Two further bedrooms and a hall bathroom with tub complete this floor. On the third floor there are two further good sized bedrooms and another full bathroom. There are ample storage closets throughout the home and additional storage in the attic and basement. The inside of this home is both warm and welcoming, upgraded to high specifications so you need only move in. Outside is equally delightful; 0.46 acres of newly landscaped garden in a prime downtown location with seating area, water feature, vegetable garden and mature trees. A double garage is currently used as a workshop but could be converted back by the new owner. There is also an abundance of potential in the large unfinished, walkout basement which is rough in plumbed for future radiant flooring and bathroom. Close to downtown restaurants, shops, Princeton University and the top rated Princeton High and Middle Schools - you may never need to get in a car again to enjoy all that Princeton offers.

        What Our Customers Say

         "Moving to a new state, we needed a new insurance agent.  We're so glad our real estate agent referred Trident Insurance Agency!" 

        They really work as a team they made everything fast and easy. They also made sure I understood every single step in the process. All agencies should be this way but they are not so why risk it. Go Trident!
