About 101 Library Place

Standing since 1905, 101 Library Place was designed for Princeton’s renowned Professor of Classics, David Magee. Fittingly, the Italianate exterior is adorned with classic friezes and half columns. A vestibule opens to an octagonal foyer from which the principal rooms radiate, each anchored by a distinct fireplace mantel. Retreat to the family room or oak paneled library for evenings in. The living room is holiday-ready, as is the banquet-sized dining room, which hides a walk-in safe, originally for silver and linens. The working wing begins with an intact Butler’s pantry with original cabinets and bar sink. Sensitively updated by Eastridge Design, the kitchen is timeless and cheerful with hand-painted tiles and a breakfast bay. Past the back stairs and second powder room is a versatile space, currently an office. Mounting the bridal staircase takes one to a generous landing providing space for lounging or study encircled by four bedrooms, each with an en suite bath and fireplace. The back hall holds the laundry and extra bedrooms with a shared bath. A finished walk-up attic, plus a studio over the 2-car garage offer space for creative expansion. Completing this very special in-town property is a balustraded terrace overlooking a 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 NJ Licensed Realtor.
