Nestled in a quaint neighborhood within strolling distance of downtown Princeton and Princeton University and two blocks from Riverside Elementary School, this recently expanded and renovated mid-century home is ready for its next owner.Wood floors, neutral walls and an abundance of windows on the first floor contribute to the home’s open and airy feel. A wood-stove insert in the living room fireplace, installed by St. John’s Chimney, goes a long way toward keeping the house nice and toasty, and provides a perfect place to gather during colder months. French doors lead into the first-floor master suite, which features a high slanted ceiling, a private bath with tub/shower combo and tile flooring, a deep walk-in closet, and sliders that open to a raised deck in the fenced backyard. A nearby laundry room does double duty as a mudroom with access to the side yard.The L-shaped dining room and kitchen is perfect for entertaining. Wood cabinets fitted with soft-close drawers and doors stretch to the ceiling and are topped with crown molding. White subway tile for the backsplash and a suite of stainless steel appliances, including a Bosch dishwasher and five-burner gas stove, complete the look. A spacious closet steps away is ready to transform into a pantry.Upstairs, newly refinished hardwood floors shine underfoot. Three bedrooms share a hall bath updated with new floor tile, sink and toilet and a refurbished tub/shower combo.Storage options abound with a spacious shed in the side yard, a dry and painted basement, and an attic with easy-to-access pull-down stairs.Expanded and remodeled in 2015, and outfitted then with new central air, furnace and water heater, the home is in move-in condition. The industrial strength roof was added this year.This traditional cape has three or four bedrooms depending on how the next owners want to configure the house to suit their family's needs. What is now the very large ground floor bedroom with its high ceiling could easily become a spacious family room leading to the backyard through sliding doors, while its bay window fills the air with light. The upstairs retains the house's three traditional bedrooms and a refurbished full bath, fine for a family with children.Location wise, the home is ideal for anyone seeking an in-town lifestyle with easy access to Princeton’s bustling downtown filled with eateries, boutiques and entertainment venues. Commuters will enjoy its proximity to Routes 1, 95 and 295, as well as the Princeton and Princeton Junction train stations.
