This is one of Princeton's most beautiful remaining tracts of land offering spectacular views of and access to Lake Carnegie in the coveted Riverside section. Originally a private residence, this gracious stone-sheathed manor home was built in 1914. When the non-profit research firm, Textile Research Institute, sought expansion and closer collaboration with universities after World War II, it purchased this estate in Princeton, a town which was attracting many new research and development companies. TRI-Princeton preserved the stately residence creating within its walls meeting rooms and offices, and the institution has remained a responsible caretaker for this beautiful estate for the past 70 years. The estate's land, originally including more acreage, now encompasses 18.47 acres featuring groves of specimen trees, broad expansive lawns, and a gentle slope to Lake Carnegie. The property is zoned R-5, which allows for the creation of 1/2 acre lots and is easily accessible with broad frontage on both Riverside Drive and Prospect Avenue. The stone manor house can be re-purposed once again or removed depending on the vision of the purchaser. The possibilities are limitless.
The Rushbrook enclave is known for spacious homes of distinction and this tudor-style residence, clad in stone, is perhaps the most picturesque of them all. Perched on a wide lot just shy of 3.5 acres, it is wrapped in woodsy privacy on three sides. Renowned Barsky Builders, skilled at creating custom spaces that make entertaining easier and everyday life a bit more indulgent, did not hold back on architectural features. A corbeled archway in the foyer and a recessed oval ceiling in the dining room make a striking impression, but such details are not just for formal rooms. The open Great room off the gourmet kitchen awes with a rounded two-story window and a paneled wall to match. While a sunroom lined with French doors and fanlights sparkles with light, the adjacent library's rich wood paneling and coffered ceiling are completely enveloping. Seven bedrooms all have custom closets, including the decadent master with double sided dressing room. On the lower level, a gym with sauna, home theater, and wine cellar radiate from an open party room.
What gives this Hodge Road house its undeniable air of dignity? Perhaps it's the leaded windows accented with stained glass, the paneled wood doors with hefty wrought iron hardware or the solid stone walls built from the very same material used for Princeton University's world-famous buildings, which happen to be just a half-mile away. Since its completion nearly 100 years ago, five generations have lived happily under its slate roof. From the gleaming oak and Mercer tile floors to the coved and coffered ceilings, every inch within has been lovingly maintained. The main hall, crowd-friendly formal rooms and paneled library remain as warm and welcoming as they've always been, while the kitchen and former servant's spaces have been modernized and opened up to create a large, laidback gathering area with French doors. Stretching out from the terrace, half shaded by flowering wisteria, a deep lawn edged with perrenials culminates in a koi pond, once the site of a picture-perfect wedding. One of two side lawns hosts the aqua-blue pool. Enjoy water's thereputic benefits any time of year in the intimate garden room with trickling fountain. On the second floor, there are three marble-tiled bathrooms serving six bedrooms, many with fireplaces and terrace access, plus the laundry room and a linen room lined with built-ins. A separate apartment is completely updated, wonderful for a nanny, caretaker or extended-stay guests. Untapped space in the full attic and basement can accommodate any unmet needs. Original amenities, like the telephone booth and hand-cranked firewood haul, may spark conversation about bygone days, but this house is prepped for the latest systems and ready to serve the next five generations with distinction and grace.
