Exceedingly private, positively intriguing and absolutely one-of-a-kind. Even most lifelong Western Section residents can only wonder what lies beyond these smooth stucco walls. The enchanting 1920’s home was intended to be inconspicuous, only revealing its many charms to those fortunate enough to be invited in. Originally built as the cottage of Dr. Charles Browne, beloved Princeton mayor for a decade, it was then privately passed from friend to friend. This short list includes Dr. Charles Ryskamp, discerning curator of the Frick and Morgan art collections. It was he who enlisted the help of Rachel Lambert Mellon, garden designer for Jackie O, to rework the grounds, which feature wonderfully private tiered lawns. A stone-floor sunroom, which showcases the backyard beautifully, is the first space to greet guests. A combination living/dining room is the main entertaining area, as well as a restful spot to end the day beside a roaring fire. Ceiling beams, built-ins and a windowed bay enhance the warm atmosphere. A darling powder room stands between a library and the kitchen, where soapstone counters and custom cabinetry are classic choices. The renovated family room is a retreat on its own level and offers great versatility as a guest space thanks to a full bath and wet bar with wine fridge. The private spaces of the upper level include 2 bedrooms sharing a pretty marble bath and the main suite, also with a bath clad in carrara marble. One bedroom has a rooftop terrace and the main has a fireplace and beautiful views through a bay window. There is a secure garage, as well as extra spots for guests.
