Ivy-Clad Mansion in the Heart of Ivy League Princeton, New Jersey

Location: Princeton, New Jersey

Price: $3,950,000

Set on a walled lot near the heart of Princeton, New Jersey, this sprawling mansion is a beauty, on the outside anyway, where the multi-gabled roof meets ivy-covered walls and Tudor detailing. The interiors are another matter entirely. Sure, the living room is fine, with its wood paneling and intricate ceiling plasterwork, but the kitchen is a mess of over-the-top cabinetry and garish granite. At least the amenity-rich grounds help to make up for the missteps inside, with a tennis court, 50-foot swimming pool, in-ground hot tub, and perennial garden. The six-bed, eight-bath estate is currently asking almost $4,000,000.
