Junior League of Greater Princeton – Priory Court House Tour

Priory Court

Every year the Junior League of Greater Princeton picks a beautiful home to do up with all the latest and greatest the interior design world has to offer. Then, they open it to the public for anyone seeking  inspiration. They always use local talent and all proceeds go to charity. This year’s tour promises to be a special one as it is at Priory Court in the beautiful Edgerstoune neighborhood of Princeton. Priory Court was designed in 1933 by renowned architect, Alfred Hopkins. Hopkins was known as an estate architect who specialized in country houses and farms. He had a long list of well to do clients, including the highly discriminating Louis Comfort Tiffany, but it turns out his most difficult client to please was indeed himself:  he spent over 20 years searching for the perfect location to build his own estate, the stunning Priory Court! The attention to detail, quality of craftsmanship and old-world feel are extraordinary. We have it on good authority that Albert Einstein loved the music wing so much that he logged countless hours playing his violin there. The tour runs from April 22nd to May 20th.  There as some pretty nifty events planned so be sure to check the JLGP website at  www.jlgp.org . There is a one on one design consultation day, a special showhouse scoop tour with Princeton Tour Companies Mimi O and architect extraordinaire Max Hayden, and much more. We also cannot fail to mention (we are after all ladies of real estate) that this beautiful estate is…FOR SALE! http://www.callawayhenderson.com/listing/NJ/Princeton/124-Edgerstoune-Road/5715575/554810 . Enjoy!  Sig&Syl
