In the 1830s Princeton architect Charles Steadman was commissioned to create a stately Greek Revival dwelling to rest on a site that was later to be transformed into a park of gardens by Russell Butler. The historic house remains one of the loveliest in Princeton, retaining its period luster and yet at the same time bestowing the many luxuries of contemporary life.?Three floors of handsome rooms afford beautiful views of the magnificent gardens, which highlight a large terrace off of the dining room and a nostalgic barn added in 1850 that, like the house itself, was constructed entirely with pegs. As you enter the house, a front-to-back foyer reveals a Palladian-proportioned living room, dining room, and library, each with high ceilings and a fireplace of marble. Exquisite original moldings, millwork, windowpanes, random-width pine flooring, and hardware infuse the rooms with warmth. Walls of windows accent the kitchen, which is adjoined by a terrace and kitchen garden.
