Princeton history is alive and well with the "Watts A. Johnson home" circa 1900. Featured in the May 4th, 1904 Bureau County Republican newspaper, the title of the article "New residence of Mayor Watts A. Johnson " This home is indeed fit for the Mayor, with so much old and new to offer. The home has only had one owner outside the Johnson family. These owners, the Curtis family, have invested 16 years in bringing the home back to it's original splendor. A large, wide foyer greets guests, with a front den, living room, dining room, huge custom kitchen complete with granite counter tops and a generous island. A walk in pantry hides your larger kitchen appliances as well as canned goods. There's plenty of details such as crown molding, wainscot, painted and natural woodwork, a "turret " style facade that extends to the second level, complete with curved glass windows. Custom kitchen cabinetry with soft close drawers, upgraded stainless steel appliances, Brazilian cherry flooring in Dining room. You will quickly feel this homes tile in floor heat that extends under the tile floors. A first level full bath makes it easy to "age in place " in this home. A builtin bench for storage is at the foot of the stairs. The second level has 4 bedrooms, two full baths, a laundry room, lots of closet space, a walk up attic, a neat office or kids homework area just behind the second story landing that overlooks the East yard. The practical functions of a home of this caliber include a generous sized rear walk in area that has a place for coats and shoes. Newer Marvin brand windows are featured in most windows with a few exceptions. A updated boiler provides heat as well as domestic hot water. The "zoned" system allows heating temperatures to be adjusted. A modern central air cooling system provides Summer relief for both first and second story. The homes basement has plenty of storage along with a toilet and sink......... A vintage carriage house now is home to two cars. Inside, there is a neat wooden floor and floored second level storage space. The corner lot goes North approximately 266 feet plus or minus. We'll ask you to take off your shoes as you tour one of Princeton's finest examples of what attention to details does in a home renovation. Please note one fireplace is non operational.
