An Exceptional Blend of Architectural Elegance, Outdoor Beauty and Historical Worth - This stately property encompasses two legal parcels (696 Princeton-Kingston Road consisting of 0.75 acres and 682 Princeton-Kingston Road consisting of 0.72 acres). The next owner(s) can take advantage of the strong demand for single-family building sites in Princeton currently and sell it or enjoy the expansive grounds during their tenure, holding onto it as an investment for the future. The elegant house is a significant part of Princetonâs rich history. Charles Steadman, the prolific architect who transformed both the town and university with his signature Greek Revival style is credited with creating this eye-catching landmark that has been admired for nearly two hundred years. For this house, he began with a modest, existing, 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 second level of the residence 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 yourself and learn more about its fascinating past and future potential.
