    Description

    Built in 1905, 101 Library Place was designed for David Magee, Professor of Classics at Princeton University. The Italianate exterior includes classical friezes and half columns. The interiors are colonial revival with the 4 principal rooms radiating from an octagonal foyer. The 8 rooms in the main block of the house each are anchored by a unique mantel. First floor includes oak paneled library, TV room, Living Room with French doors to the terrace, banquet size dining room with bay window with window seat and walk in safe originally for silver and linens. In the working section of the house can be found an intact Butler's Pantry with original cabinets, wine storage and a bar sink; food pantry; updated kitchen by Eastridge Design with hand painted back splash of Nantucket wild flowers by Debbie Seymour, Wolf Rangetop, Viking ovens and Sub-zero. First floor is completed with back stairs, second powder room and space currently used as home office which could be a convenient playroom or breakfast room. Mounting the Bridal staircase you arrive at a generous upstairs hallway providing informal sitting or study area. Accessible from the landing are 4 bedrooms each with en suite bath. Completing the second floor are two more bedrooms, hall bath and laundry. Walk up attic and second floor of detached 2 car garage provide additional space for creative expansion. Completing the property is a balustraded terrace and walled garden large enough to kick a soccer ball or host a garden party. Seeking a sensitive steward for the next 25 years. Owner is a licensed New Jersey Realtor.
