Anyone who's made their way through Princeton's famous Western Section has picked out a dream home. For many, this is the one that stands out among all the eye-catching properties as the pinnacle of splendor and graciousness. Its angle on a prominent corner affords the fountain-splashed terraces and sun-dappled pool as much privacy as a country estate, but with Palmer Square, McCarter Theater and the activity of the University just a stroll away. The interior is dressed to the nines after being recently redecorated. Now, hand-stenciled walls, bespoke window treatments and opulent new bathrooms join the numerous fireplaces, French doors and incredible moldings that made the home a show-stopper in the first place. Off the grand foyer, where a wet bar hides under the split staircase, is a party-perfect living room that flows out to a covered loggia, as well as separate studies - both inviting jewel-boxes in which to grab some quiet time. In the kitchen, a thick slab of marble provides ample island workspace beside a Wolf range and bright breakfast area. Conveniently extending from the coffered family room, a mud entry and breezeway connect a 3-bay garage. The way the current owners live shows just how modern and adaptable the upper levels can be. A central bedroom lined with built-ins makes a perfect lounge for the younger set, while another of the 6 total bedrooms is a suite sized for two. The crown jewel of the multi-room main suite is a glimmering mosaic tiled bathroom fit for a queen. A third floor gym is lined with interior windows for a motivating dose of morning light. There are so many exceptional details here, both new and original, to discover and admire.
