About 56 Edgerstoune Road

A most enchanting property, this Princeton classic, designed by noted New York Architect A. Embury II, was built in 1929. Like scenes from a storybook, tiered terraces overlook a pond, stone walls envelop a courtyard, and a wisteria arbor leads the way to an English conservatory. The deceptively spacious house, brimming with restored original detail, has elegance and charm in equal measure. During an extensive renovation that just wrapped up in 2018, the current owners took great care in stripping millwork, revitalizing leaded glass windows and even polishing knobs and hardware. A reimagined kitchen, sleek new bathrooms and smart additions, like Sonos speakers, bring the home up to high-end modern standards. Windows added over a Wolf range capture the best view, while Quartzite gleams atop the island. In the dining room, arched niches give special pieces pride of place, while in the large living room and cozy study, fireplaces are edged with built-ins. A third fireplace, this one gas, warms the master suite, which is replete with a closet-lined dressing room and a deep tub in the well-planned bath. Five bedrooms total include an au pair-ready suite tucked away on the first floor. Don’t miss the newly finished 3rd floor’s darling playrooms!
