The newly restored Woodslea House, a 1927 Princeton manor nestled into the picturesque Edgerstoune neighborhood, is a prime example of famed society architect Marion Sims Wyeth's grand style. Educated in Princeton and Paris, Wyeth's most notable homes include Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and Doris Duke's Shangri-La. The past two years were spent recapturing the ambiance of its heyday. Many priceless details remain intact such as 17th century Queen Anne doorways, carved mantelpieces imported from England, the pond's whimsical pagoda and the sweeping brick terrace. Now, thanks to the expertise of passionate craftsmen overseen by owners dedicated to the preservation of architectural beauty, plaster walls are smooth once more, windows gleam and the pool is a refreshing oasis. While the reconfigured marble main bath is entirely brand new and the kitchen has every modern luxury, from full-size wine fridge to professional range, many spaces intentionally flaunt vintage fittings and tile to beautiful effect. Neither words nor pictures do this property justice. Only in-person can one truly appreciate the splendor of the domed skylight illuminating the gracefully curving staircase and quarter-sawn herringbone floors. Just like a crown, the stone balustrade encircling Woodslea's roof perfectly embodies the noble spirit that once again graces this very special 3.38-acre property.
