Own a piece of history on Bank Street in the heart of Princeton. This authentic Victorian home built in 1896 was sympathetically and meticulously renovated in 2018. Many of the original charms have been preserved, and much of the interior has been tastefully upgraded. With the Bank Street Historic District adjacent to Nassau Street, the home is a short walk to Palmer Square, Princeton University, the Princeton Public Library, the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, McCarter Theater, the Princeton Garden Theater, the Dinky train station, and top-rated schools. There are three floors with high ceilings and a finished basement, all fully furnished, and a small but private fenced-in courtyard containing a mature persimmon tree. When entering the front door, you will be greeted by a rare 19th century Italian handmade oil lamp which has been converted into a chandelier and a stunning exposed brick wall dating back to when the house was built. The foyer provides open sun-drenched views to the parlor/living room featuring a bay window, the dining room, and a tastefully designed gourmet kitchen with a seated bar area, a large pantry, skylights, and a wall of windows overlooking the rear courtyard. Here the preserved exposed brick wall meets high-end appliances and exquisite quartz stone extra deep countertops. The kitchen includes a Miele steam oven, a Jura fully automated espresso machine, and an Omega juicer. The main level showcases a stunning Porcelanosa marble tiled bathroom, a rain shower, and a wall mounted vanity and toilet. The second floor currently houses a primary bedroom with generous closet space, a charming full bathroom with a Miele washing machine, and a spacious open living area that could easily be converted in one or two extra bedrooms. A charming second floor balcony looks out over the street. Beautiful custom-made wood floors from Carlisle NYC and Lancaster PA are found throughout the home. The 3rd level currently functions as a large bedroom with a bathroom and yoga studio. It is bathed in natural light thanks to strategically placed skylights. The basement has been meticulously finished and could easily be adapted for multiple uses. Enjoy the virtual tour of this unique home. Street parking with township permit or parking garage on the next block.
