Elm Court: A Revered Princeton Landmark Since 1928
132 Elm Road Princeton, New Jersey 08540 United States 

About 132 Elm Road

Elm Court has been a treasured Princeton landmark for nearly a century. Although the in-town location at the culmination of Hodge Road is well known and admired by all, the enclosed European-style crushed stone courtyard gives the French Provincial manse a sense of privacy and shelter. Celebrated American architect and Princeton grad, Marion Sims Wyeth, designed the house for Junius Morgan’s daughter on land originally owned by William Penn, then Richard Stockton. As a Wyeth design, Elm Court joins the ranks of two of America’s most famous residences, Marjorie Merriweather Post’s Mar-A-Lago in Palm Beach and Doris Duke’s Shangri-La in Honolulu. The estate is nearly 3 acres with rear gardens that revel in unimpeded sunset views, a swimming pool and a full acre that can be kept or sold. French doors across the back of the house open to a stone terrace under a candy-striped awning. Inside, detailing includes finely carved wood and marble mantles, acanthus leaf crown molding and graceful art niches that echo arched doorways. A reception hall opens to the formal rooms, a morning room and library, while the kitchen and breakfast rooms have their own entrance. The master suite is being redesigned to meet and exceed modern expectations. Two more double-room suites have their own fireplace and bathroom, as does a third floor bedroom. The former servants’ wing is now a 2-bedroom apartment with large living room, den and kitchen. The southern wing houses a fully equipped regulation squash court, behind which there is also an outdoor tennis court. Some photography is courtesy of the owner taken during his residency at Elm Court.
