If you long for an in-town lifestyle and a home of manageable proportions, yet slow your stride when passing by those gracious estates of bygone days, then the stunning McCosh House on Princeton’s Nassau Street may hold the key to happiness! The elegant mansion was built in 1888 for the revered university president, then later served as a boarding school and was ultimately divided into two residences. The East unit is brimming with smart updates and all the inimitable character that makes an old home special. It all begins with a privately enclosed patio with new stamped concrete that echoes the extra guest parking pad below. A Dutch door reveals completely open living and dining areas crowned with a coffered ceiling. A long quartz-topped island offers extra seating and serving space. Fresh paint gives every inch a clean, bright feel that extends down to the updated lower level housing an office, storage room and renovated powder room, which is super practical when entering from the 2-car garage. Upstairs, a new full bath featuring a dual-head shower and stylish brushed brass hardware is yet another big-ticket upgrade. Choosing between bedrooms is no easy decision. One has a romantic Juliet balcony, a walk-in closet and a claw-foot slipper tub. The other has a working fireplace topped with a beautifully detailed mantel. The laundry is handy to both. This is truly the perfect blend of elegance and in-town ease!
(Chimney and fireplaces are in working order but are being sold as is.)
