Property Details for 56 Princeton Ave


This property is no longer available to rent or buy. This description is from May 02, 2015
Visual poetry best describes this "one of a kind" center hall Colonial located on one of the nicest tree lined streets in all of Princeton. The curb appeal begins as you stroll up the river stone walkway edged in Belgium Block that frames the path to this charming home. Notice the lovely gardens and specimen plantings full of flowering buds. Upon entry, you can't help but notice the lovely foyer graced by the oak staircase that is full of traditional elegance and architectural style. The gleaming oak hardwood floors flow seamlessly from room to room and glisten from all the natural ligh...t that pours through the vast number of windows. The wood burning brick fireplace with handsome mantel warms the cozy living room with adjacent bonus room. This wonderful home is truly the epitome of design and character and will charm you with each step. Other character features include custom moldings, built in cabinets, a walk up attic, and the original flooring that echoes sounds from yesteryear. Maybe the most brilliant aspect of the home is the seamless blending from the original structure with today's modern amenities. The transition is flawless. The updated gourmet kitchen is well equipped with S/S Jenn-Air appliances, plenty of natural stone granite counter space and carefully constructed custom cabinets. Conveniently located between the dining and family room spaces, adds to the ease of living. The room sizes are generous and each space tells its own story of comfort. Accompanying the relaxing bedrooms are tastefully upgraded bathrooms with hotel quality fixtures that make end of the day relaxation spa-like. The rear yard is a great space to entertain with flowering English ground cover gardens and mature towering trees. The bluestone patio and deck add comfort to the surroundings where you can enjoy watching nature gather. This lovely home is a whisper from the past and has worn its years well. With era features throughout and tasteful updating, this lovely home is the definition of timeless grace. Located close to town and in the prestigious Princeton School District only adds to the value. Don't miss this rare opportunity to own a bit of history? it doesn't come around often.
