Built 2014
The most prized corner in the Western Section was an obvious choice for the site of a brand new dream home, and in-demand Knight Architects was the go-to firm for a refined design befitting the location. Gas lanterns flicker at the manicured entry to the French Provincial completed in 2014. Since then, the gardens and trees around the pool and walled lawn, land once owned by the McGraw-Hill Family, have matured to provide total privacy. A patio with built-in grill and fireplace invites al fresco entertaining nearly year-round. Beginning with leaded-glass framing the front door and continuing with antique lighting and salvaged marble mantels, great care was taken to incorporate hand-crafted elements and add patina to flawless spaces - the key to making a new house feel layered and dynamic. Quarter-sawn random-width oak floors are another worthwhile splurge that call to mind the craftsmanship of an earlier era. Double mudrooms, a main level bedroom suite and a full-service elevator are just a few telltale modern attributes that make life easier. Another is the open kitchen design featuring a rare chestnut island and 48” double Wolf range. In the antique-mirrored butler’s pantry, a full-size wine fridge makes choosing a vintage a quick task. Nearby French doors and clerestory windows high over the family room pass extra light between the adjoining spaces. Two staircases lead to 3 suites, each with beautifully finished walk-in closets, built-ins and marble-accented baths. The boudoir-inspired main suite is the peak of luxury thanks to extras, like a fireplace, slipper tub and dressing room island. With 9-ft ceilings and space galore, the top floor suite is an apartment-sized refuge. No modern-day luxury home is complete without an optimized lower level with zones for fitness and casual entertaining, including an authentic pub-style bar imported from the British Isles. An admirable addition to Princeton’s most iconic neighborhood!
