Location, location, location! Welcome to a unique home that was custom built by the locally-known Princeton architect, Oliver Houghton, in 1957, and served as his family home for 50 years. A classic colonial, it exudes charm and tradition throughout. Situated in the desirable western section of Princeton, the home sits on a large, beautiful, wooded and private lot that is within close proximity to downtown Princeton and the University. Filled with interesting details and built-ins, the home features a Dutch door, cedar paneling, pine flooring, a four seasons porch off of the kitchen, a large working wood fire place, a spacious walk up attic for storage that can be finished, a tool/storage room below the porch with its own entrance, a shed and much more. With or without upgrades and renovations, this home is a gem. Additionally, there have been improvements over the years, including central air conditioning on the second floor, expanded closets, and a heated private studio/office adjacent to the garage. The result is a home that has, and will stand the test of time and outlast any home decor trend! The home is being sold ‘as is’, so come in with your own creative vision and make this home a special haven for you and your family! Princeton schools, close to trails, parks, restaurants, library and the Princeton YMCA. Dont Miss!
