Welcome to 73 Drakes Corner Road, a captivating blend of charm and space nestled in the heart of Princeton, NJ. This remarkable property offers a quintessential New England Style Salt Box home on a sprawling lot adorned with native and specimen planted trees, open yard, and tall woods. Originally built in 1955, this home has been thoughtfully expanded over the years, embracing its heritage while incorporating a flexible floor plan. Boasting 3 to 4 bedrooms and 4 baths, this home itself affords ample space for comfortable living. The charm of yesteryear welcomes all upon entry and the dramatic living room features a stunning bluestone floor, setting the stage for memorable gatherings or quiet evenings by the fireplace. Throughout the home, pegged oak random-width floors and stone fireplaces, add warmth and character to the living spaces. As the heart of the home, the kitchen offers a perfect blend of functionality and convenience. Immediately open to the breakfast area and overlooking the rear yard, the kitchen is an inviting space for culinary creations and casual dining alike. On the main level, beyond the study, the dining room and the living room, the primary suite, (which offers the ability to be two separate bedrooms with their own exterior entrance) provides a nearby, yet tranquil sanctuary at the end of the day. Two additional bedrooms and baths on the second floor offer as needed versatility. Outside, the enchanting landscape beckons you to explore and unwind. The expansive yard provides plenty of space for outdoor activities, while the surrounding woods offer a connection to nature. Enjoy al fresco dining on the patio or simply relax and soak in the beauty of your surroundings. Conveniently located just 3.5 miles from Nassau Street in downtown Princeton, this property offers the perfect balance of tranquility and accessibility. Experience the best of both worlds & the serenity of country living with the amenities of city life just moments away. The house, in need of some TLC, is being sold strictly as-is and represents an extraordinary opportunity. Come see!
