Every home assumes some portion of the history of those who have lived within its walls. This residence bears, with honor, the indelible mark of its philanthropic owner, who for 66 of his generous 100 years, effected landmark changes, locally and nationally, in scholarship and justice. Viewed through that lens, this parcel of real estate, in Princeton's coveted and venerable western section, is truly iconic. The property was part of the original Morven estate, developed at the beginning of the last century. Noted, then, as a double lot, the parcel consists of nearly a full acre of prime land. The house is a classic Tudor, often referred to as a Wilson Tudor in deference to the architectural preference of another original Morven property owner, Woodrow Wilson. Stylistic details, such as leaded windows, slate roofing, and a romantic balcony, have been well maintained or appropriately renewed. A tiled entryway opens to a foyer with access to the expansive living room, a powder room, and coat room. Beyond is a large sunlit library with fireplace, built-in shelves, and adjoining sitting area. A separate entrance to the side yard and the circular drive is provided by French doors, giving these rooms some versatility as a working office. The kitchen, with an additional side entrance and renovated pantry, a gracious dining room, and sunroom opening to a bluestone terrace, grace the back of the house. Formal gardens with specimen roses, and meandering walkways, dominate this portion of the backyard. On the second floor are four spacious bedrooms, each with its own full bath, plus a studio, nearby powder room, and linen storage corridor. Included is a generous main bedroom suite with dressing area, TV/exercise room and a renovated bath. Under the eaves, on the third floor, original bedrooms now serve as a playroom, a studio with tree-top and garden views, an office, and large storage spaces. A full dry basement with game room and outside access, plus a detached 2-car garage and carport, complete this inspirational property.
