Property Description

Once part of Princeton's historically significant Clarke Farm, experts believe this house neighboring the battlefield and the 1726 Quaker Meetinghouse dates back to the turn of the18th century. Over the years, it evolved from a tiny cottage that once served as a toll house to a 3-bedroom home complete with a garage connected via a pretty screened-in porch .Even the acre-large lot calls to mind another era with a rare American Elm branching out over the stone driveway. Inside, you'll be pleased to find wood floors with some rooms retaining their original wide planks. The southerly family room in the oldest section of the house also features exposed wood beams. A proper entry foyer with a roomy half-bath leads to the kitchen with the option of gas cooking. The dining room opens to a patio, perfect for grilling, and the living room is brightened by multiple windows. Atop the stairs is a large hall closet and a sizable full bath equally handy to all three bedrooms. FantasticPrinceton public schools are close by and the progressive Friends School is literally at your doorstep. Newly subdivided, taxes TBD by town. Subject to the recording of deeds memorializing the subdivision approval granted from the Princeton Zoning Board on June 24, 2020.
