Stately Colonial Home


Straight from the pages of a history book, this picture-perfect Princeton home was built in the early 1900s, then lovingly enhanced by the Lasley Brahaney restoration team more than a century later. From the elaborate dentil moldings that ring the sophisticated white exterior, to the ionic columns on the stunning front porch addition, to the copper accents on windows, door frames, shutters — and even the roof of the bird house in the garden — every detail is awe-inspiring.

Other key features of the impressive estate include: an elegant ballroom that was moved onto the property from downtown Princeton in the 1920s, a new kitchen addition with an 11-foot skylight, custom cabinetry and a European antique wood floor finish, a pool surrounded by a garden with tiered grass stairs, and a secondary structure with a pool house, a 4-car garage and 4-bedroom living quarters. Together, the home and its surrounding landscape are the ultimate epitome of timeless charm.
