About 4 Evelyn Place

Just off Nassau Street in downtown Princeton is a quiet cul-de-sac steeped in Princeton’s past. A handful of residences, each full of personality, enjoys town ‘n gown vibrancy amid lushly planted gardens, in the neighborhood known as historic Jugtown. This distinguished white colonial served as home of the headmistress of nearby Evelyn College, a turn-of-the-century all women’s college, the first in New Jersey. Entering into the wide foyer from the welcoming front porch, you can almost hear the echoes of lively discussions about literature, science and social change in the large living room through tall pocket doors. Lustrous wood floors, 9-ft ceilings and a multitude of fireplaces are hallmarks of the era, while extras, like a diamond-paned china hutch, broad windows, and a breezy screened porch, conjure images of a more leisurely era. Today, the cream-colored kitchen is a prime spot for communal cooking and laidback meals thanks to an island and a sunny breakfast bay expansion, where floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the garden featuring rare holly trees and a vine-entwined arbor. Around the corner are the laundry, a desk alcove and a bar handy to the dining room. Ascend the switchback staircase to 4 corner bedrooms, each with distinctly charming features, such as tall bookcases and a front balcony. Two full baths serve this floor and another is found within a third floor bedroom suite with an adjacent office. A cedar closet, deep linen closet and a full storage room keep necessities neatly stowed away. Seamlessly blending history and practicality, tranquility and accessibility, this home has it all. Here is a unique chance to make your forever home on Evelyn Place, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and just a short stroll to restaurants, shops, NYC bus-stop, and Princeton University.
