Single Family Home

The walkable Princeton home you've been waiting for! This contemporary Colonial combines the best of old and new Princeton and is located in Riverside, one of our town's most beloved neighborhoods. Quiet, one-way street is walking distance to university (including athletic facilities) and all of downtown Princeton's attractions, as well as the freeB bus stop. Also very close to a small park, Lake Carnegie, and the D & R Canal with its multi-use (running/biking) towpath. Easy access to the highways via Harrison, but house is far enough down street that you hear no noise from Harrison. Schoolchildren walk or bike to outstanding Riverside Elementary, less than half a mile away (with the assistance of crossing guards). Broadmead Swim Club (affiliated with the university but open to all) has been a summertime focal point of the neighborhood for generations. This is a safe street where neighbors know each other and even have old-fashioned block parties together. Backyard is private and fenced on three sides, beautifully planted with a stand of bamboo and mature perennials (including azalea, forsythia, peony, daffodil, snowdrops, crocus, lilac, dogwood, blueberry) that require little maintenance and attract birds and bunnies but no deer. This house has tremendous light throughout due to oversized windows. The master bath and back addition (family room/MBR sleeping area), are heated with radiant flooring. The original part of the house has hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace and a picture window in the dining room overlooking the pretty backyard. The back addition has a modern urban feel with its siding of two courses of cement block (the insulation layer between interior and exterior walls ensures no drafts or dampness!) Family room was originally intended to be a new kitchen/great room and the plumbing and gas lines are in place to complete this renovation (plans available on request). It would also be easy to add a half bath downstairs. Master suite as currently configured includes a den, now used as a home office, which could easily function as fourth bedroom. All bedrooms are generously sized and closet space is ample. One-car garage includes large functional workspace. Driveway parks 2-3 cars. Basement tall by Princeton standards and good for storage (additional storage in floorboarded attic). It's time to enjoy that walkable college town lifestyle that is so in demand, at a very attractive price point. Won't last, so make your appointment today
