Welcome to 2 Riverside Drive, a home filled with charm and history. This 3-bed, 2.5-bath house was originally built in 1750, with additions in 1890, 1940, and 1961. Today, the house includes a light-filled kitchen with patio access, basement workshop, office space, and bonus room (perfect for a playroom or art studio). HVAC and electrical systems have been modernized. The large yard features two patios, a quaint garden shed, multiple gardens, and plenty of room for expansion. Originally, the property was a toll house and tavern on the main New York to Philadelphia road. In the 1940s, the literary powerhouse couple Allen Tate and Caroline Gordon bought the property and made it their own; famous guests reportedly included T.S. Eliot, Edmund Wilson, and Dorothy Day. The dining room’s decorative fireplace has the word “UNION” etched into the stone, likely a marker that this was a safe house for the pre-Civil War Underground Railroad. Downtown Princeton, with its many restaurants and boutiques, is a short walk away, and Riverside Elementary School is just down the block.
