Circa 1830 Greek Revival! Manicured gardens! Includes timber-frame barn! $3.25 Million in New Jersey

$3,250,000 | 1830 | 5 Beds | 4.5 Baths | 1.47 Acres
696 Princeton Kingston Rd, Princeton, NJ 08540

An exceptional blend of architectural elegance, outdoor beauty and historical worth – with an enthralling narrative that goes back to the Revolutionary era and enchanting grounds that include two lots with a rare timber-frame barn, this stately home is a significant part of Princeton’s rich history. Charles Steadman, the prolific architect who transformed both the town and university with his signature Greek Revival style, began with a modest 18th century dwelling and created an elegant residence with high ceilings, carved marble fireplaces, grand pocket doors and all the exceptional millwork one would expect from an interior of this caliber. What may come as a surprise is the beautiful condition of these features, including original floors, and the overall livability of the comfortable rooms. Even the basement is as welcoming as it is functional with a fireplace-accented office and a rec space with built-ins and brick floors. Tucked away on the main floor, a tavern-like room clearly marks the oldest section of the home with a cooking fireplace, a beamed ceiling and even a handy half-bath.

A little covered patio draped in wisteria opens to the yard, as does the sunny kitchen addition. A breakfast room lined with windows and storage is a casual alternative to the banquet-sized dining room. Outdoor entertaining is another appealing option with a stone terrace overlooking a sweep of lawn studded with majestic trees, the site of more than one happy wedding celebration. The homes second level includes four spacious bedrooms with more tall ceilings, plentiful windows and handsome fireplaces. Three of them have adjoining baths. The top floor is a charming hideaway with a fifth bedroom and fourth full bath, along with valuable cedar-lined storage. Of course, the picturesque barn has all the storage you could ever need and potential to be so much more! Come experience the magic of this historic property for yourself and learn more about its fascinating past. Check out the virtual tour!
