Property Details

600 PRETTY BROOK RD, Princeton, New Jersey 08540 - Built in 1772 by a Dutch farmer, "The Bouwerie" is one of Princeton's most iconic properties. As a homestead during George Washington's occupation of Princeton, it was renovated in 1991 with meticulous attention to the preservation of its original details: hand-hewn beams, pine flooring, a walk-in Beehive fireplace, stone steps leading to a study and half bath that once housed horses, and a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by period Delft tiles. Reclaimed white-pine and heart-pine flooring, as well as interior and exterior beaded and dentil moldings were employed throughout the new addition to complement the authentic 1700's detailing. Entering through the front door of the home's new addition, one's eye is immediately drawn up to a stunning, artistic stained-glass skylight.

Two wood-burning fireplaces add cozy warmth on chilly days. The main gathering room of the original house has been transformed into a sitting area off of an updated country kitchen, which features a brick enclosed Aga range, pine cabinetry, and a breakfast nook enclosed with hand-carved wooden moldings. Below the kitchen is a finished space perfect for a home theater, playroom, or exercise. The second floor of the original home is accessed by a spiral, wooden staircase and offers fully appointed guest quarters, including two bedrooms, a playroom and two full baths, which can be secluded for privacy through another entrance. Adjoined by an outside deck, the second floor of the addition features three bedrooms, four baths, a laundry room, and a beautiful master suite boasting a sitting area with gas fireplace, dressing room, jetted tub, sauna, a double shower steam room, an exercise alcove, and two outdoor porches.
