Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Private on 1.28 manicured acres, this 6 bedroom Tudor Revival, known as the Vreeland House, blends romance, tradition, and ease with Arts and Crafts-inspired interiors and a prized walk-to-town location on Princeton's historic Mercer Street. Bearing the home's 1903 hallmarks of long leaf yellow pine and hardwood floors, pointed archways, and diagonal woodworking, the entrance hall leads to grand living and dining rooms, each with a fireplace and transomed doors to a sun-dazzled conservatory wrapped in windows. An outfitted butler's pantry is an extension of the renovated kitchen, up-to-date with granite counters, a stepped island, and stainless appliances that include a Viking Professional 6-burner range. Above the library's fireplace, one of five, is the University seal - a nod to the home's first owner, Professor Williamson Vreeland. A hall with a full bath leads to an in-law suite with its own stone patio. A grand staircase leads to 2 upper floors, where 5 more bedrooms are supported by 3 baths and additional spaces flexible for any need.
