At perhaps the most recognizable and revered crossroad in all of Princeton, this elegant brick Georgian stands with distinguished presence. A brick walled garden designed by Glen Fries hides a private Eden in the heart of the Western Section, blocks from town center. Step through the entry’s leaded glass vestibule into the receiving hall, where a finely detailed spindle staircase ascends toward a tall Palladian window with countless delicate panes catching the light. Double parlors, one more formal and feminine, the other decidedly masculine and relaxed, feature two of the home’s seven fireplaces topped by hand-carved mantels. Both showcase the impeccable style of Jim Klein, the decorator behind Drumthwacket’s interior. Beyond French doors, an ethereal sunroom adjoins the dining room. A hand-painted chinoiserie mural encircles the space, fostering a sense of intimacy and plenty of conversation. The kitchen with adjoining butler’s pantry is fitted with cherry cabinetry and matching wainscoting.
