Up a long, winding drive sits a home of timeless elegance with a storied past. Designed by Rolf Bauhan, one of Princetons most influential architects, this Norman Tudor was commissioned in 1932 by John Higgins Wallace, a noted chemist at Princeton and completed in 1934. The architectural design features an octagonal turret at the homes center with two separate wings forming an L shape and extending three stories. As a labor of love, this gracious tudor has been completely updated (over $2M) to 21st century standards - both aesthetic and mechanical - by its current owners, with the help of noted architect Jerry Ford. A graceful foyer introduces the living room, dining room and library featuring period details - leaded glass windows (replaced with custom storms), restored red oak paneling, and limestone fireplaces. The timeless beauty of the kitchen, dining area and butlers pantry is enhanced by Carrera marble countertops, heated antique limestone floors, and Viking appliances. The upper two floors provide the perfect spaces to retreat and to work undisturbed. The extensive master suite has been reimagined in neutral hues with a stunning master bathroom, with radiant heat floors and walk-in shower with added steam shower, and separate study/dressing room/half bath with a wall of cedar-lined closets. Three additional bedrooms, a generous office with added dormer window, den, and two full bathrooms complete the second floor, while the homes third floor offers yet another bedroom suite. The homes landscaping features multiple bluestone terraces, gardens and stunning manicured grounds. The back terrace overlooking the tiered lawn is ideal for entertaining, while the property is large enough to easily accommodate a pool, tennis court or even a wedding! Fenced and plans for a lap pool. Almost a mile and a half from downtown Princeton and all it offers, this is a period home of enduring beauty restored for todays lifestyle. Window treatments, custom lighting and fixtures included. Furnishings negotiable.
