TUSCULUM --An allee of Zelkova trees welcomes you to Princeton's most historic estate in private hands. This important stone and clapboard house was built in 1773 by the Rev. John Witherspoon, leading patriot, signer of the Declaration of Independence and 6th president of Princeton University. The house was completely restored and enlarged by its present owners in 1998, under the direction of Princeton architect, T.Jeffrey Clarke. The estate is located just minutes from downtown Princeton and the University. It consists of main residence, magnificent stone barn, caretakers' cottage, and numerous 18th-20th century farm outbuildings. All buildings have been recently repaired, restored or re-built. Tusculum retains its historic farm context but serves as a residence for luxurious modern living. Its main house and barn readily accommodate large scale entertaining. The elegant wine cellar holds 2,000 bottles and is entered through the special tasting room. Owner will give credit for pool renovovation.
