Location! Location! Enjoy proximity to Nassau Street favorites such as The Blue Point Grill, Hoagie Haven and Small World Coffee! Rarely offered for an in-town property, this circa 1900 Colonial features the convenience of a first-floor bedroom suite with its own laundry facility. Beautiful hardwood flooring abounds throughout this bright vintage home. The living room is open to the dining room and both are complemented with charming white shutters. Adjacent to the dining room is a cheerful retro eat-in kitchen. The design lends itself to an easy transformation. A door from the kitchen accesses the enclosed back porch which serves as a mudroom and place to start seedlings for a small garden. The second floor has three more bedrooms serviced by a hall bath and there is a cozy study nook. A walk-up attic with wide plank antique flooring offers great storage and potential for more useful space. There's also a basement that can accommodate storage needs. Hang out on the covered front porch - perfect for a morning cup of coffee and watching the world roll by. A nice little park adjacent to the property is an added benefit to the low maintenance side yard that comes with the house. This is truly a convenient location - close to Nassau Street in one direction and Princeton High School in the other. A must see!
