Property Details

505 MERCER RD, Princeton, New Jersey 08540 - A visually dramatic living space and separate well-appointed quarters are found in this distinctive home with an important local history. Built in 1901 as part of the dairy farm for the original Drumthwacket estate, it was transformed by its architect owner creating a never-to-be-repeated opportunity. With both the main house and a finished converted barn attached, possibilities are endless for the artist, professional, yoga enthusiast, extended stay guests, or even as a future pool house. This remarkable space features original New York subway tile, cove ceilings with Guastavino tile, kitchenette, full bath and multiple flexible rooms with radiant heated floors. A colonnade connects to the main house that was renovated to incorporate all the elegance of a bygone era along with everything you'd expect in a 21st century home. Hand-blown glass windows softly filter light into well-dressed rooms. The kitchen was refurbished with both granite and cherry countertops. Three baths upstairs were either added or re-done to accommodate four bedrooms, one a gorgeous master suite with dressing room and walk-in closet. Formal rooms are gracious and surrounded by a porch with both glass or screens for summer, and a charming study. Three fireplaces - two gas, one wood-burning - warm the dining room, the porch and the play room. On a sheltered, nearly two-acre parcel, close to Nassau Street and the Institute for Advanced Study woodlands while adjacent to the Battlefield of Princeton, this one is not to be missed!
