Property Description

This imaginative and inviting light filled Princeton residence began as the greenhouses of the Moses Taylor Pyne estate, the main house of which is now the New Jersey Governor's mansion called Drumthwacket. Two large-scale renovations by the current owners were remarkably sensitive to the building's roots. Architectural firms Holt, Morgan and Russell and Outerbridge Morgan preserved a certain humble air, while incorporating high-end finishes.

The two renovations and a new addition substantially increased the footprint and raised ceilings exposing lustrous wood sheathing and industrial fittings from 1890. New materials seamlessly blend throughout, such as broad slate and heart pine flooring. Waterworks bathrooms are timelessly elegant. Wraparound windows give the master suite treetop views, while tiered windows in the gourmet kitchen look out over a tranquil landscape with magnificent trees and original greenhouse walls now edging stone patios. Beyond the 1.54-acre fenced yard, sidewalks lead straight to the center of town. A rare opportunity to own a unique home built on land once owned by William Penn.
