Long admired as one of the most stately houses in all of Princeton, this extraordinary home was transformed by Howard Russell Butler in 1912 from what was a Colonial into a magnificent Tuscan Villa on one of Princeton's most famous streets: Library Place. Butler, the leading portraitist for Andrew Carnegie and founder of the American Fine Arts Society, was also President of Carnegie Hall and oversaw the construction of Carnegie’s 5th Avenue mansion in New York City (now Cooper-Hewitt Museum). Grand and exquisite, this distinctive Princeton home is enveloped in lush gardens and mature landscaping, creating an air of privacy just three blocks from the town center. Spacious rooms, architectural detail and supreme finishes truly highlight the natural beauty of the home. The stunning, light drenched atrium, a hallmark of Butler’s renovation, which he created as his painting studio, has afforded recent entrepreneurial owners with dedicated space and a private entrance for business endeavors. More recent renovations include the award winning professional chef's kitchen, luxurious master suite with sauna and Jacuzzi, and bedroom wings for family, guests and live-in assistance. A great home for both casual and formal living, it is easily accessible for those traveling to New York or Philadelphia.
