Princeton, NJ Real Estate

 

Princeton real estate is highly sought for its beautiful houses and upscale community—not to mention the prestige associated with a Princeton mailing address. The town has long been the heart of culture and history in central New Jersey thanks in no small part to the community being built around one of the top three universities in the nation.

Princeton homes for sale benefit from being almost equidistant from Philadelphia and New York; both cities are just around an hour away. For this reason and because of its small town feel, residents of Princeton enjoy the quaintness of the epitomical college town with the convenience of being a short drive or train ride from two of the world’s major metropolises.

The area’s two municipalities of Princeton Township and the Borough of Princeton, which lies wholly within the township, are merging to form a single municipality. Princeton University occupies a third of the borough, with the downtown area backing right up to the campus. The tree-lined streets and upscale shopping and dining of downtown coupled with a cozy, quiet residential area contributed to Princeton being named the 15th best place to live in the United States by Money Magazine in the past decade.

Princeton houses for sale run the gamut in size and style, ranging from small starter homes and single-person units to palatial estates with acres of verdant property for large families. Parents have their choice of excellent public schools, serviced by the Princeton Regional Schools district, and a number of outstanding private and boarding schools. An extremely low and declining crime rate is just another reasons many families seek out Princeton real estate listings.

The opportunities for recreation are endless in Princeton. Carnegie Lake is a manmade body commissioned by Andrew Carnegie just south of the Princeton campus. A towpath along the lake offers picturesque vistas and many places to take a stroll or have a picnic. In fact, all of downtown Princeton and the university’s campus are easily traversable, and hours could be spent just taking in the spectacular architecture, including the university’s Collegiate Gothic halls and the sprawling 19th Century manors of Library Place and Elm Street.

Princeton area real estate is never far from a thriving arts and cultural scene. If you’re a fan of the performing arts, McCarter Theater showcases many stage productions before they make it to Broadway. Triumph Brewing Company offers a hip atmosphere with live bands and, of course, loads of libations. If history is more your speed, Princeton is rife with it. Historic buildings and ties to everything from the Revolutionary War to Albert Einstein make up dozens of fascinating sites to visit.

If you’re looking for a safe, affluent community in which to settle down with your family or perhaps to start one, contact your local Prudential Fox & Roach agent today and learn more about Princeton real estate.
