Description

At perhaps the most recognizable and revered crossroad in all of Princeton, this elegant brick Georgian stands with distinguished presence. A brick walled garden designed by Glen Fries hides a private Eden in the heart of the Western Section, blocks from town center. Step through the entry���s leaded glass vestibule into the receiving hall, where a finely detailed spindle staircase ascends toward a tall Palladian window with countless delicate panes catching the light. Double parlors, one more formal and feminine, the other decidedly masculine and relaxed, feature two of the home���s seven fireplaces topped by hand-carved mantels. Both showcase the impeccable style of Jim Klein, the decorator behind Drumthwacket���s interior. Beyond French doors, an ethereal sunroom adjoins the dining room. A hand-painted chinoiserie mural encircles the space, fostering a sense of intimacy and plenty of conversation. The kitchen with adjoining butler���s pantry is fitted with cherry cabinetry and matching wainscoting. Click here to learn more about this listing.
