Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty is listing The Bouwerie, one of Princeton’s most iconic properties, for $5.9 million. The 9.73-acre property is located on Pretty Brook Road and has quite the history.

According to the Callaway Henderson SIR listing, this home was built in 1772 by a Dutch farmer. It was a homestead during George Washington’s occupation of Princeton, and in 1991 it was renovated to preserve the original details—hand-hewn beams, pine flooring, a walk-in Beehive fireplace, stone steps leading to a study and half bath that once housed horses, and a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by period Delft tiles.

The single family home has six bedrooms, five full baths, three partial baths and a four car garage.
