Description

This stately c 1885 colonial was built on land which was subdivided from the original Morven tract, creating Morven Place, a quiet and distinguished street in Princeton's western section. Recent updates add to the elegant and gracious hallmarks of the period begining with a grand three story staircase that is perfectly positioned in the front-to-back, center hall which opens to handsomely proportioned rooms featuring tall ceilings, wood floors, moldings and mantels, pocket doors, built-in bookcases, arched windows and doorways and numerous French doors opening to columned covered porches, a stone terrace, upper balcony and rear deck. A wood paneled door opens (on the left) to the front parlor with twin pocket doors and the library (on the right) with built-in bookcases and charming powder room, the formal dining room has a bay window, double pocket doors opening to the parlor, the living room has twin window seats on either side of the fireplace with French doors to the side covered porch and twin archway openings to the glass walled sun room complete with a water feature (just needs a pump) should one enjoy a zen-like atmosphere. A long mudroom is just off a side door with tiled flooring and plenty of closets that opens into a renovated spacious kitchen complete with expansive granite center island, walls of floor-to-ceiling cabinets (upper cabinets are glass front and lighted) and topped with granite and a custom arched stone hearth with commercial stove and oven as an artistic center piece. The breakfast room or great room, if you'd prefer, is windowed with stunning views of the backyard with easy access to the deck from a glass door for breezy outdoor entertaining. The second level has a windowed landing and a large hall where the double door entry master suite has had a second renovation that encompasses an updated bathroom with tumbled marble flooring,over size shower with bench, soaking tub, dual vanities, a door to an upper balcony and a walk-in closet with large windows and a center island. Two more bedrooms and two more renovated full baths exist on this level, one bedroom (an en-suite) is currently being used as a home office while the other bedroom has direct access to a hall bathroom from inside the room and from the hall, a very large laundry room at the foot of the staircase could easily be converted into an office/gym-the pick is yours. The third level has three bedrooms with ample closets and one full hall bathroom. The feeling of grandeur is mixed with a colorful past where talk of a private speakeasy in the 1920's was accessed through a trap door in the living room down to a room in the basement complete with a fireplace. The backyard has gardens, majestic trees, a two-car detached garage, shed, plenty of parking and room for lawn games and a pool. There will many "favorite spaces' inside and out with three levels of living and easy entry to the outdoors,
