Due to the health concerns created by Coronavirus we are offering personal 1-1 online video walkthough tours where possible.
For those who long to live in a storied neighborhood on a street lined with the legacy properties that Princeton's Western Section is famous for, yet shy away from the worries of owning such a home, this completely updated colonial is the rare offering you seek. A top-to-bottom renovation and expansion in 2008 by Lasley Brahaney not only beautified every space, but overhauled every system for smooth functionality and ultimate comfort. Every inch is modern and flawless, while the character and gracious scale that was originally intended shines through. The formal rooms are ideally sized for hosting parties and holidays, especially with a nearby butler's pantry/bar that encourages guests to help themselves. French doors open to the sunroom and a broad stone terrace overlooking the private yard, complete with a firepit that beckons on crisp fall nights. With a wide-open view into the family room and chef-approved appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele, the kitchen is a joy to use. Around the corner, a generous radiant-heated mudroom is loaded with custom storage. Upstairs, a library-like hallway leads to 4 bedroom suites with bathrooms done in an array of materials that stand the test of time. The main suite is luxurious with a balcony, custom built-ins, a dressing room and a spa-inspired, creamy-hued bath. The 3rd floor is a bright and cheerful alternative to a finished lower level with areas for gaming, billiards and a second office. A full bath also makes it ideal as a bunkroom. Be sure to thoroughly explore the basement, where an Endless Pool and separate workshop await! Copper gutters and cedar siding are classic choices that align with the home's roots and enhance the charm of the sheltered facade. Features that support a modern lifestyle and enhance efficiency include a Tesla charger, fully wired ethernet for perfect WiFI, Sonos whole-house-sound inside and out, 6 zones of HVAC, Nest thermostats, 3 ERV units to bring in fresh air and Aprilaire filters throughout.
