Available for the first time in decades, this remarkable property at the epicenter of downtown Princeton boasts an oversized lot that extends from vibrant Paul Robeson Place to tree-lined Green Street. The community-focused Arts Council is immediately next door and the world-class public library is just across the street. As a proud part of the history-rich Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood, the charming house, defined by its wide front porch, has watched as its surroundings evolved over the course of a century, from Princeton’s self-sustained African-American enclave to a designated historic district full of an eclectic mix of residences ranging from Victorian to Contemporary. While it’s easy to imagine the house all spruced up, like some of the other vintage homes along the street, the array of options is wide. The original structure could be expanded or an income-producing Accessory Dwelling Unit could be added, both subject to zoning parameters and permission from the historic district. With a lot of this size, off-street parking could likely be retained, a valuable commodity in this location. Whether its future includes a careful restoration or a complete reimagination, this long-treasured residence will remain a prominent part of a special neighborhood thanks to its key location and historical significance
