    Description

    All the hallmarks of exceptional design are on display in this classic Princeton home. From its handsome brick exterior, wrought iron entry gates and circular driveway to the finely detailed interior, traditionalism and post-modernism unite in a combination that is truly irresistible. This landmark 1930's residence is surrounded by a manicured acre of gardens, specimen trees, bluestone terraces, meandering stone walls and a private tennis court. The floor plan incorporates a modern addition featuring bright, airy window-walled family and breakfast rooms topped by a unique pyramidal skylight, as well as a skylit chef's center island kitchen with designer cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances. A spacious entrance foyer introduces generously-sized main floor living spaces, well suited for gracious entertaining as well as casual every day living. The step-down living room has sweeping views of lush gardens while the dining room features graceful plasterwork details. A cozy wood-paneled library with a fireplace, the site of numerous historic meetings during World War II, and an adjacent study complete the main floor. The master suite has a fireplace, dual baths and abundant closets. On the third floor, a guest bedroom suite is enclosed by a modernist glass block wall. A true blend of innovation and classical style, this special home is sited on a quiet cul-de-sac and backs onto ten acres of pristine woodlands. Sheltered and private, its ideal location is just a short walk to downtown Princeton's shops, restaurants, cultural venues and is readily accessible to the area's extraordinary educational institutions.
