Mercer County Homes for Sale, Hightstown Real Estate Listings, 158 North Academy Street, MLS #6814455 Luxury Homes, Condos, Estates for Sale

158 North Academy Street

Hightstown, NJ 08520

Totally unique estate property at an affordable price in the bustling, world-class technology and health corridor that links Princeton, New Brunswick and Trenton. Step-in and complete a house and glorious grounds project first imagined by a distinguished Princeton University professor and his family. It starts with a very private setting created by significant shrubbery on a huge beautiful lot in Hightstown that slopes dramatically from North Academy Street (west) to the rear of the lot (east), with a high overlook of Rocky Brook (north). The arc of sun during the day sweeps across the entire lot and the south facade of this venerable Victorian that has been customized to accommodate a wonderful eclectic collection of architectural artifacts that, in combination, create the effect of an early 19th century country home. The original portion of the house dates to the 1890's. A slate roof not more than five years old covers the entire structure. Also new: updated electrical wiring and Pella windows throughout. First floor rooms feature finely-crafted oak parquet flooring. Principal rooms include a bright, sunny entry room added about 1907, a dining room large enough for two sideboards, two living/sitting rooms, and kitchen. The kitchen's former wood-burning stove has been expertly converted to a gas stove and oven. This room also features a hidden dishwasher, marble sink surrounds a second oven and fascinating cabinetry re-purposed from a former life. The back of the house is an exciting project that awaits a new owner to bring out the full potential of the great room, giant garden facade, and private library. Many architectural elements can be used to bring this great room to its full Regency Period glory. Available elements include a door and fanlight as well as several other pieces from Point Breeze in Bordentown, the former home of Joseph Bonapart (now demolished). The unfinished great room in the rear could be configured into a mother-in-law suite or home office. Bring your architect; bring your builder!
