161 Hodge Road, Princeton, NJ 08540


Circa 1928 and built of hand-selected Pennsylvania field-stone, this lovely manor house was designed by renowned Princeton architect Rolf Bauhan, who refers to 161 Hodge as, "one of my best". On over an acre of professionally landscaped lawn and gardens within Princeton's "Western Section", this house possesses 6 bedrooms and 6.5 redone bathrooms. The formal living room, library and dining room each have high ceilings, gorgeous moldings and prominent fireplaces, while the dining room walls display a delicate hand-painted mural telling the story of "Scenes of Princeton". Tucked away, off of the paneled library, is a private office with creamy custom built-ins. A total kitchen renovation in 2011 includes; all-white 'Raynor Woodworking' handmade custom cabinetry, 2-inch thick marble counter-tops, radiant flooring, Marvin windows, Viking/Sub-Zero/Miele appliances, a butler's pantry, new family room, full bath and a mudroom. The master bedroom, with gas fireplace and 2 master bathrooms, rests on the second floor, along with 5 additional bedrooms, 3 additional bathrooms and a large playroom, complete with laundry. The finished attic makes for a perfect future recreation area and comes with 4 secret storage rooms, while a heated in-ground pool, surrounded by a large fenced and walled lawn, provides three-season fun and frolic. The 3-car garage, with unfinished pool house space, was added to the grounds in 2013 by Lewis Barber Construction. Electrics, lighting, plumbing, 4-zone heat and 8-zone central air were all upgraded/added in the main house, and floors were refinished, while the original footprint, slate roof and period details were left intact. Self-testing whole house Kohler generator recently installed. Walk to downtown, restaurants, shops, Princeton University, McCarter Theater and The Institute for Advanced Study. Welcome to Princeton.
