About 68 Library Place

Noted 19th century architect, Richard Morris Hunt, perhaps most famous for designing The Breakers in Newport, R.I. and the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, is the artist behind this breathtaking Library Place estate. Built in the 1880's as a gift to a Princeton Seminary dignitary, this grand home has been beautifully brought into modern day living and is ideally located a block from town center, close to McCarter Theater and the Dinky train. A symphony of period details sing through 3 floors and 6+ bedrooms, warm with original hardwoods, 9 fireplaces, and natural light flowing through over-height windows. Very gracious formal rooms like the library, dining room, and living room, are dramatic with high ceilings, intricate ceiling medallions, and exquisite millwork that includes chestnut pocket doors. The spirit of the home is modernized in the renovated dream kitchen, anchored by a gazebo breakfast room addition with 360 degrees of windows; a 2-sided fieldstone fireplace connects to the family room and a wet bar. Completely repointed, the brick facade perfectly counterpoints the expansiveness of its manicured corner lot.
