    Description

    Imagine living in a magnificent estate built during the Gilded Age, ideally located just one block from the center of Princeton. Walk to nearby McCarter Theatre, the train, shops and many restaurants! The preeminent architect of his day, Richard Morris Hunt - the designer of the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, the Breakers, in Newport, RI and the facade of the Museum of Natural History - designed this home as a gift to the first president of the Princeton Theological Seminary in 1882. Also, Miss Fine started her school, (Princeton Day School) PDS, on the third floor of this home in 1897.This grand brick home has been brought into the modern era by its current owners. The grand 6500+ square foot, 3-story home, with 6+ bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 9 fireplaces, and the original lead glass oversized windows has an engaging front porch where you can enjoy cocktails with friends or read a book enjoying a cup of coffee. Very gracious rooms, including the library, living room and dining room have maintained their original charm with intricate plaster ceiling medallions, chestnut pocket doors, millwork and dramatic 12+ foot high ceilings.The central part of the home is the newly renovated chef?s kitchen with a gazebo, breakfast room addition. These rooms are accentuated by the many windows and views from all angles and a 2-sided river rock fireplace which connects to the family room and wet bar.The brick exterior has been completely repointed. This home sits majestically on a manicured .79 acre corner lot. The current owners were presented with the Historical Society of Princeton?s Historic Preservation Award in 2003.
