Property description
On one of the quietest Western Section streets with the closest proximity to town, location alone makes this turn-of-the-century beauty worthy of admiration. Factor in extensive work by Princeton’s most celebrated architect and it will top your must-see list. Michael Graves himself infused the Neoclassical interior with his signature style, resulting in an elegant modern atmosphere. His work is most recognizable in the dining room’s plaster fireplace wall and restrained coffered ceiling illuminated by onyx fixtures that complement antique French lighting throughout the house. Across the wide welcoming foyer is the living room with working fireplace and the library with custom built-ins and bar by Max Hayden, a Graves protegee. The large family room is flooded with light from added windows and French doors opening to a sunroom perched above a sunken garden, another Graves vision come to life framed by a deconstructed pergola. A built-in buffet, a host of top-tier appliances and a desk large enough to actually facilitate work make the kitchen a multi-tasking command central. Below is finished space for exercise and play with a full bath in between. Follow the grand staircase to 5 gracious bedrooms spread out over two levels. Updated bathrooms are luxuriously clad in marble, onyx and shimmering mosaic tile. Choose between two main suites each boasting superbly designed dressing rooms. Not to be dismissed, the laundry room is another enviable space with custom built-ins. A new DaVinci Slate roof exemplifies the exceptional quality of improvements undertaken all around the property.
