Property Description

In the heart of Princeton, prized for its elegant period homes and close proximity to town, this picture postcard home and carriage house present a regal presence on a corner lot, surrounded by patios and established gardens, one with a sweet cherub fountain. Elegant period details like hardwood floors, unique fireplaces and custom millwork add character and grace to every room. For all its traditional beauty, this home and carriage house provide modern flexibility for the way you want to live-whether you are looking to escape city life, need space to accommodate the generations, or want to supplement your lifestyle with rental income. Both the main residence in front and carriage house in back can be stand alone residences; together, they provide living at its grandest. With highlights like a sun-filled library and spacious living and dining rooms connecting to a charming butler's pantry, the main front house boasts 5 bedrooms, 4 of which are en suite. The carriage house in back provides beamed, open-concept living and dining, 4 bedrooms, 2 of which can be used as bedrooms but can also be utilized as a FLEX room or home office and 2 1/2 baths. A fabulous location and opportunity and an easy stroll to downtown Princeton, the Dinky and top Princeton schools! Carriage house lot (0.14) included in sale of house (2019 tax $712). Owner is NJ Real Estate Licensee.
