Property Description

PRICED TO SELL! This gracious home in the most prestigious section is just a short distance to downtown, restaurants, and Princeton University. As you enter the front door you are greeted by a grand foyer with a lovely sweeping curved staircase and hardwood floor. The stunning living room boasts a wood-burning fireplace, picture moldings, and French doors that open onto a deck that overlooks the yard and patio. The adjoining cozy den/library with walls of windows could also be used as a downstairs office. Entertainment is made easier with the butler pantry, conveniently located between the ample-sized sunlit DR and the modern gourmet kitchen. With a granite countertop and French doors that also open, the eat-in kitchen has the space for either a family or a breakfast room. The back staircase will take you to the 2nd floor, which includes a generously sized primary suite with French doors that leads to a private balcony, a two-sink updated bathroom, and a walk-in closet. Also on this level are 2 bedrooms and a hall bathroom waiting for your special touches. The third level has the second office, a bedroom suite (claw-foot tub), and many windows to let fresh air and light in. The walk-out lower level includes laundry + mudroom, and substantial flexible space (i.e., gym, playroom, and even your own media room). Original details such as lustrous wood floors throughout, period windows & doors trim are preserved throughout the home. The one-car garage is being used as an Artist studio. This 4-level home is a treasure with updates that include newer windows, gas furnace and water heater (2013), 2 zoned system, C/A, and slate roof work.
