Beautiful, tree-lined Battle Road with its enviable location straddling the peaceful Institute Woods and the activity of town has long topped the list of Princeton’s most desirable streets. This handsome home perfectly embodies the gracious historic nature of the neighborhood, while an open family room and main suite expansion by Lasley Brahaney offers the effortless flow and added private space today’s lifestyle requires. Custom interior shutters and refinished original floors add to the refinement of the formal rooms flanking the impressively wide foyer. Entertain al fresco or just enjoy peaceful me-time out on the stone courtyard festooned with wisteria and the screened porch capped with a cathedral wood ceiling. The yard beyond is so large and lovely, it once hosted a jubilant wedding celebration! Aside from the multitude of spacious rooms, all radiating from the wide open, white kitchen, there are plenty of private corners for retreat: a multi-room office suite/5th bedroom on the main floor, a cozy bedroom up the backstairs lined with custom built-ins and the main suite with 2 walk-in closets and pretty views of the grounds, to name a few. Extra cedar-lined storage and the laundry are also handy on the second floor. An oversized garage attached via a breezeway and mudroom makes this winsome Institute Area property complete.
