On the front porch of this grand Park Ave. East home, you'll see chiseled in stone the words, "Winnie-Taska," which means "Pleasant Place: Home of Many Laughters." This name was given to this home by Chief Red Fox and Black Hawk, friends of the early owners. This "pleasant place" could give you joy and laughter for many years to come if you decide this remarkable, historic home in Princeton is the place for you! This home has been beautifully maintained and updated over the course of its history. Built in 1834, an addition was added later to the east side that became the first Post Office in Princeton, with the entire residence totaling over 4,000 square feet. The home has two main entrances, the first door that opens into a beautiful Foyer with marble flooring and a second front door that was the entrance to the former post office, but now leads into a library/den complete with an adjoining room with a fireplace currently used as an office. There are a total of 4 fireplaces in the home--3 wood burning and 1 decorative. The kitchen, living room, dining room, sunroom, half bath, and laundry room complete the main floor. Upstairs are four bedrooms, including the Master Suite with a fireplace, a large 17' long Walk-in-Closet, and a huge Master Bathroom with double sinks, Jacuzzi, and separate shower just a few steps away. Three more bedrooms, another full bath, and a storage room complete the second floor. Look at the Updates sheet to get a full picture of all the work done on this property to maintain its historical integrity but yet modernize it for current times. For example, this home has a new ADT Security System, new Tankless Hot Water Heater, a new High Efficiency Gas Boiler with 5 heating zones, and an updated 200 amp electric service. But wait, there's more: the 2-car attached garage and the over-sized barn with a raised ceiling that can accommodate a large RV, camper, or truck. All this on beautifully landscaped and fenced 1.17 acres (mol) with delightful gazebo, hammock, patio, perennial flowers, and enough extra land for a pool or tennis court. Don't let this one slip away. Come see this "pleasant home of laughter" today!
