CURB APPEAL AND LOCATION! This pretty move-in ready 3-bedroom, 2 1/2-bath ranch home, set on one of the larger lots in the neighborhood and cared for by its original owners, offers the best of in-town living. Just around the corner from the sought-after Riverside Elementary School, it’s an easy walk or bike ride to Princeton University and downtown.
Upon entering the foyer, you’re struck by the graceful proportions of the rooms, the flow of light, and the warmth of the hardwood floors. The traditional living room, graced by a fireplace with a wood surround and mantle, and stone hearth, combines with the dining room at the far end of the room, which leads through double doors to the kitchen behind it. The kitchen features maple cabinets, a stainless steel sink, wall oven, electric cooktop, and recessed lighting, as well as a grid-covered skylight, softening the natural light. Over the sink is the original window looking out into the backyard. The window was transformed into an opening without glass, as many years ago the back wall of the adjacent den was pushed back by six feet, essentially creating a window-lined hallway behind the kitchen, providing easy access to the mudroom, coat closet, half bath, and oversized double garage, directly from the den. The back wall of the den became a wall of windows, with an exterior glass door in it, overlooking the nicely landscaped backyard. This is where you’ll spend most of your time! Carpeting covers the original hardwood floor and the 6-foot strip of new flooring that was added on.
There are hardwood floors in all the other rooms, except for the kitchen and bathrooms. The den also opens to the foyer, leading to the bedroom wing. The en suite primary bedroom features its own entry hall with a bathroom featuring original gleaming tiles, and a step-in shower. The airy bedroom has windows on two sides, and two closets straddle an inset dressing table. The remaining two bedrooms share the hall bath. The sprawling and dry basement, with bilco doors to the backyard, is unfinished but provides lots of possibilities, limited only by your imagination. This home has had only one owner and has been thoughtfully taken care of and improved.
Owner completely replaced the sewer line in 2016 and the furnace in 2021. Three dead ash trees are scheduled for removal in early July.
This location is ideal. Walk to schools, grocery stores, restaurants, shops, the canal path for a leisurely stroll in a beautiful setting, and enjoy the cultural offerings of both the university and the vibrant town of Princeton. Easy access to Philadelphia and NYC trains, airports, Route 1 shopping and, most of all, the endless benefits of Princeton. DO NOT MISS THIS GEM!
