How often have you walked and or driven on Princeton's Jefferson Rd and wished you lived in the heart of all that Princeton had to offer? This lovingly updated duplex allows you to simply unpack and move into one of Princeton's most central and desired neighborhoods. The current owners have kept all the character - high ceilings, hardwood floors, cozy breakfast nook yet have already done all the hard work updating and modernizing this sunny, three-bed, one-and-one-half-bath duplex with a private backyard, so your time can be spent strolling to Nassau Street, taking the short walk to the high school and middle school campuses, or exploring the many nearby parks. The home itself offers the conveniences of in-town living with the rarity of an elegant and private rear garden along with ample off-street parking. As you walk into the front door you are met with an open, sunny well lit space with an easy front-to-back flow that favors day-to-day living as well as entertaining your guests. The modern kitchen with its own sitting area and dining area flow nicely into the main living space framed by high ceilings and ample windows. The second level has three well-sized bedrooms and a full bath and the finished third floor offers today's buyers the flexibility of a playroom, home office or exercise area. The improvements at 173 Jefferson Road encompass both exterior and interior upgrades. Exterior enhancements include a new roof and gutters installed in 2020, a new sewer line in 2016, and refreshed landscaping. Other internal enhancements include converting oil to gas heating in 2022, installing a new combination water heater and boiler, and removing the oil tank in the same year. Additionally, a new AC system featuring split units across the three floors was implemented in 2016, with one unit on the third floor, two on the second floor, and one on the first floor. The wood-burning fireplace was converted to the highest quality gas fireplace in 2018. Further improvements include all new wastewater pipes in the basement, refinishing the hardwood floors on the first and second floors in 2016, and the addition of breakfast nook benches in 2020. The hard work is done'¦173 Jefferson is ready for you to kick off your shoes and enjoy.
