Standing on just over an acre immediately adjacent to the glorious meadow that introduces the world famous Institute for Advanced Study, this gracious 1930’s home deftly blends traditional polish and contemporary edge. Not only was the house strategically enlarged, an incredible studio was built behind the garage. With a 16-foot peaked ceiling, a commanding stone fireplace and inspiring garden views, it is an enviable place to dive into a project, harness your creativity or host lively discussions. Even guests with the highest standards would be thrilled to take up temporary residence in this dramatic space. The main house is filled with rooms large enough for festive entertaining, yet completely comfortable for a quiet evening alone. The boldly hued study is especially cozy and unconventionally sophisticated. The central kitchen is thoughtfully laid out with both butler’s and walk-in pantries and an open flow into the window-lined breakfast room. French doors here and in the family room encourage enjoyment of the stone patio and delightfully private backyard. Each of four bedrooms displays individual character and desirable features, like walk-in closets, built-ins and soaring windows. While it already offers a walk-in closet, the main suite with adjoining office poses several options to elevate it to the next level. A basement game room with half bath and a handsome brick mudroom are valuable spaces not to be overlooked. Stroll the Institute woods, explore IAS’s renowned wine list, perfect your swing at Springdale Golf Club – these diversions and more are right at the edge of this storied Princeton neighborhood.
