Property Description

A streamlined-silhouette home surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds combine in this updated mid-century modern in Princeton’s Institute neighborhood. Built in the 1950’s and extensively renovated, remodeled, and upgraded in and since the 1990’s, this classic property has all the architectural components of the period, including vaulted beam ceilings, full-glass doors, and expansive panes of glass with minimal trim inviting light and the outdoors in. A staggered bluestone walkway leads to a raised and covered front landing where, upon entry, an all-hardwood floor plan, open-concept rooms, and large windows bring outdoor views into every room. To the left of the entrance hall is a family room/study with vaulted ceiling and skylight, custom bookshelves on three walls, and built-in file cabinets. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace flanked by alcoves with spot lighting, and French doors opening to the large deck and patio. The adjacent dining room has a built-in cabinet topped in walnut with upper beveled-glass cabinets—both rooms have stunning beamed ceilings above. The kitchen with Mexican tile flooring, custom pine cabinets, granite counters, and a breakfast nook with a bay window offers a commercial-grade Five Star gas stove/oven and a large Sub-Zero refrigerator. The tile flooring continues into the adjacent laundry room with plant shelf and lighting above along with additional storage, and a back-hall mudroom opening to a glass-covered walkway leading to the two-car garage. A long vaulted and beamed galley hall with clerestory windows above leads to the bedroom wing, where two bedrooms, each with vaulted ceilings and dual closets, share a full hall bathroom with a vaulted ceiling and skylight, Italian floor tiles, a jetted soaking tub/shower combo, and a porcelain pedestal sink. At the end of the hall, a front-to-back master suite with a dressing area and three double-door closets opens to a master bath with Italian tumbled marble flooring, dual sinks, and a glass-enclosed tiled shower. Below, a large partially finished and carpeted lower level adds more living, recreation, and/or storage space. The front and backyards are filled with specimen trees and plantings, ground covers, and raised beds. The backyard hardscaping consists of a large open deck with steps down to a bluestone terrace enhanced by a large stone-walled planter, a stunning, recently rebuilt pergola for dappled sunlight, and a garden shed on a cement pad with a small deck—all of this surrounded by custom clean-line wooden fencing. Enjoy the outdoor vibe with lots of visiting birds, red foxes, and other critters, and Sunday afternoon carillon concerts emanating from the nearby Graduate College. Walkable to downtown Princeton, the University, the Institute for Advanced Study, McCarter Theater, the Springdale Golf Club and more.
