Property Details

40 MERCER ST, Princeton, New Jersey 08540 - Proudly set on a prominent corner in historic Mercer Hill, this fine Federal-Style/Greek Revival built by Charles Steadman (1790 - 1868) Princeton architect-builder for his two daughters is an exquisite balance of original charm and modern day comforts, thanks to period 1825 detail, recent renovations, and a stroll-to-town location. Hardwoods flow throughout, as marble fireplaces, lofty ceilings, and acorn leaf millwork adorn the living and dining rooms. The jewel of the home is the recently renovated, eat-in kitchen, anchored by a pull-up counter of honed granite, as stainless and marble gleam alongside a skylit breakfast nook with built-ins and a matching wet bar. A sheltered back terrace inspires with views of manicured gardens, a slate patio and fenced back-yard. With incredible storage, a walk-out lower level includes a half bath, great room with the original kitchen fireplace, and a charming new mudroom/laundry/craft room. A new full bath graces the landing, and then it's upstairs to 2 bedrooms: one wrapped in bookcases, and a fireside master suite. The top floor offers a 2nd suite and a loft with a full bath for the younger set. The detached 2-bay garage plus 1 additional parking space directly in front of the garage, is unique to in-town living. Located a block from Princeton's main street; Nassau Street, with Princeton University, restaurants, shops, Princeton Art Museum and more. Just a short stroll to Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall, McCarter Theater, and the Princeton Train Station with the "Dinky" shuttle to Princeton Junction Train Station.
