My Notes

A Princeton Classic built in 1929, designed by noted New York architect, A. Embury II. Four full baths plus powder room and renovated eat-in kitchen. 1.36 professionally landscaped acres with stone terraces, covered porch, a kidney-shaped swimming pool and ponds with waterfall were the vision of Ellen Biddle Shipman, a trailblazer known for her transporting landscapes. Filled with inimitable details throughout, the house begins with a bright center hall adorned with delicate millwork. Paneling in the intimate study is completely enveloping, especially with the fireplace in use, one of three. A barrel-vaulted sunroom overlooks the pond. The formal dining room with elegant arched display niches flows into the up-to-date kitchen, with breakfast nook. Ample storage in basement, garage and walk-up floored attic. Walk to town and all Princeton has to offer: entertainment, transportation, boutiques, cafes, and fine dining.  More Less
