Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

As one of Princeton’s oldest structures, dating back to 1720, this sunny yellow Colonial has a spot on the National Register of Historic Places. While the home is as charming as expected, the interior is surprisingly livable and the grounds offer a cornucopia of blooms, herbs and greenery arranged into garden rooms and formal parterres, all shrouded in privacy. The landscape designer/owner even carved a path to neighboring Stony Brook to complete the bucolic experience. Whether entering into the original foyer or into the expanded chef’s kitchen, antique floor boards and big working fireplaces make it nearly impossible to distinguish “old” from “new”. A total of 5 sets of French doors in the open breakfast room, functional butlers pantry and ample dining room give way to a newly laid brick patio, while a door between the beamed living room and cozy family room opens to a covered porch with new mahogany floor. Be it the garden views, the expertly crafted built-ins beneath a cathedral ceiling or the romantic en suite bath with clawfoot tub, the master suite is on par with the best room at a 5-star inn. Two more bedrooms and a nursery/office share a second bath and the same idyllic views. This house is located in a flood zone. An elevation certificate is available. The home owners of more than two decades, have never submitted a flood claim.
