A storied 1920 villa located right in the heart of Princeton is our featured home of the week. Callaway Henderson Sotheby’s International Realty is listing this Battle Road property for $2.499 million. In addition to its historic past, this home features four bedrooms, three full baths, two partial baths, two fireplaces and a patio.

According to the real estate listing, this single family home was built in 1920 for Princeton University professor and Einstein companion, Charles McClure. Einstein is said to have serenaded fellow guests on his violin from one of the property’s balconies.

Architect Bob Bennett has since renovated the spaces for better functionality and repurposed a guest house as the new main level master wing, complete with separate dressing rooms leading to a luxurious bath.

Described by real estate agents as radiating old world romance, this home features plaster walls, wrought iron detailing and Juliet balconies. From a Spanish tile roof to the crushed stone paths, the property has the ambiance of a European country villa.
