Property Details

28 COUNTY ROAD 518, Princeton, New Jersey 08540 - An opportunity of a lifetime to own a historic home with architectural integrity that also delivers airy, loft-like rooms for modern life. Built circa 1770, the house has been sensibly expanded and updated throughout the years including a comprehensive, historically-sensitive, green renovation by the current owner. Everything has been touched and everything has been done right with energy- and resource-efficiency in mind. Generous proportions are complemented by beautiful details that only a seasoned craftsman with an eye for design and scale can deliver. Wide plank floors and hand-hewn beams merge beautifully with modern day comforts like high R-value windows, up-to-date kitchen and much more. The sun-drenched breakfast nook is a delight with the live-edge table top and the hidden-storage benches. A washer and a dryer are cleverly housed behind a masterfully executed swinging shelf-door. Out the front door, dappled in sunlight is a blue-stone patio braced by a fieldstone retaining wall; linger over the morning paper or enjoy long summer weekends and convivial times with friends and family. Back inside, adjoining the kitchen is the dining room with an air of simpler, more austere times. Beyond the family room -- nestled in the oldest part of the house are a bedroom and en suite bathroom. Back in the family room, up the hand-crafted winding staircase awaits a cozy seating loft with a built-in bookcase and a reading nook. A spacious master bedroom is to the right with large closets and en suite office with a barrel-vaulted ceiling. Back out and across the loft, behind a set of beautiful barn-style sliding doors is the main bath with tile-clad, marble shower, claw-foot soaking tub and a Nakashima-inspired custom-built vanity. A charming third bedroom completes the second floor. A rambling floor plan can accommodate a multitude of needs, all with the elegance of an understated classic. Lending itself to so many lifestyle possibilities -- a daily oasis, a we
