Follow the trees on an historic Western Section street to the scrolled iron gate of this romantic four bedroom beauty,poised to win hearts with its welcoming portico, classic roof lines traced by an elegantly sculpted frieze, and encircling gardens in lushly layered greens. The entrance hall introduces the stunning 1830's character (random width hardwoods, tall ceilings, period molding) that graces expansive family, living, and dining rooms with decorative fireplaces. Serpentine marble complements incredible tiger maple cabinetry that stretches to the ceiling in a richly detailed kitchen with every modern amenity. Adjoining is a spacious conservatory, gilded with sunlight, and filled with views of the secluded, manicured gardens. A covered side porch offers tucked-away space. The 2nd floor houses a cozy study, two bedroom suites with Delft tile fireplaces and modern marble baths, and 2 more bedrooms sharing a bath, perfect for the younger set. A potential 5th bedroom suite occupies the entire 3rd floor. 2-car garage. Only a block from Nassau Street with the train, McCarter Theater and Princeton University just beyond!
