About 238 Mercer Street

A row of red brick townhouses proudly lines one of Mill Hill’s handsome one-way streets, where, twice yearly, admirers stroll the sidewalks during home and garden tours that celebrate the historic neighborhood. Otherwise, this urban enclave is surprisingly peaceful and quiet. Step inside this residence to discover beautifully renovated spaces across all three levels. Absolutely everything was upgraded and perfected, from the wood floors to the walk-in closets! The large living and dining rooms are trimmed with crown molding and wainscoting. The kitchen is done in classic black and white with an island and a stainless steel appliance package that includes a 5-burner gas range. The smaller spaces beyond are absolutely invaluable: mudroom storage, laundry, powder room and even a built-in desk. Three bright bedrooms share a huge bathroom with double sinks and separate tub and shower on the second floor. Occupying the entire top floor, the main suite is a sunny refuge with ample space for two wardrobes within 3 closets and another big bathroom, this one with a pretty clawfoot tub. The property even includes the type of backyard you’d expect to see only in the suburbs, complete with a pergola, stone patio and raised planting beds - all neatly fenced. It's extraordinary for a 19th century townhouse to have spacious and well appointed closets along with generously sized bedrooms and ample modern basement storage. Yet, with the freshly reimagined floor plan of a 2017 gut renovation, this new layout yielded just that. And it only begins the unexpected delights found in this quaint, 1860s home nestled in Trenton’s Historic Mill Hill. Other upgrades to this gem include dual zoned central air and heat, spacious baths on second and third floors, a laundry area conveniently located in a mud room which includes a home office area, all tucked behind a light filled modern kitchen. Or if you prefer to work more proximate to your private quarters, why not repurpose the inspired walk-in closet ensuite to the owner’s bedroom? This gracious area has full sized windows looking out onto tree-lined Mercer Street. Two additional full sized closets here ensure that you still have plenty of space for clothing. Four bedrooms, two and a half baths that spread over three floors perfectly suit our modern need for space and privacy. Let your eyes dance across the gleaming Jacobean stained hardwood floors flowing throughout each floor or they can feast on the tasteful ceramic tile that appoints each bath. No time for a trip to the spa but need a space to rejuvenate? This house pampers you with separate tubs and showers as well as double sinks in both the family bath and the primary bedroom suite. On the main floor, balanced and ordered passages between the living room and dining room accommodate entertaining with flair. A modern, California-themed rear garden makes hosting outdoor gatherings a dream. The clean, spacious concrete-floored basement storage area is comparable to what you would expect to find in a newly-constructed home. Lastly, enjoy the charm and camaraderie that characterizes this tight knit community while ensconced in the comforts of your surprisingly modern piece of history. Blocks away from city and state government complexes, walking to transit hub for access to Philly, NYC and Washington DC also convenient; easy ride via Rte 1 and Rte 29 for weekend pleasures in Lambertville or nearby Princeton's McCarter Theatre. Vibrancy and thrill of urban energy unsurpassed.
