About 253 Wendover Drive

Note the lower taxes than comparable properties 2019, $23,547.00! Nestled in Princeton's Brookstone enclave, just a stroll to Johnson Park Elementary School, and sidewalks to the center of Princeton, this east-facing, brick-wrapped Colonial has been brought completely up-to-date freshly painted in neutral colors, with youthful renovations that handle modern life with ease and style. Custom millwork of the highest quality fills the home, showcased by a graceful, hand-crafted bannister, which gives architectural presence to the 2-story front hall, and cherry paneled library with ceiling-high bookcases and a sunburst fireplace mantel. Four sets of French doors open to tiered bluestone terraces and gardens of lilies, irises, and monarch-attracting milkweed, framing the back of the home. A fully-fenced, garden-party backyard dazzles with views of a stacked stone wall, towering trees, and a bird's eye view of babbling Stony Brook. Crown molding, recessed lights, and hardwood floors fill the 1st floor, including the living room, warm with a marble-framed gas fireplace, and formal dining room with a bay casement windows. Cherry cabinets, top-line stainless appliances, and granite counters gleam in the recently renovated kitchen. The mudroom/laundry room centers on the ultimate gas dryer/steamer - never send your sweaters out again! Front and back stairs rise to the 2nd floor, where you'll be greeted by the carpeted family room, whose utility changes as needs change: playroom, hangout, movie night haven. A half bath is nearby - the home's third! Three of the 4 bedrooms are suites with renovated baths and good closets. The master suite is so special with a closet-lined dressing room and a built-in marble dressing table, plus a beautiful bath that features a multi-jet shower with a rain fixture. A finished 3rd floor hosts a walk-in cedar closet, storage space and an office. Providing peace of mind are a replaced electric panel and furnace, plus a back-up generator. This leafy location is pretty much perfect: an easy 2 mile drive to downtown Princeton, and within strolling distance to Johnson Park School and Greenway Meadows Park! Enjoy a neighborhood setting without Home Owner Association (HOA) Fees!
