Description

The most prized corner in the Western Section was an obvious choice for the site of a brandnew dream home, and in-demand Knight Architects was the go-to firm for a refined designbefitting the location. Gas lanterns flicker at the manicured entry to the French Provincialcompleted in 2014. Since then, the gardens and trees around the pool and walled lawn, landonce owned by the McGraw-Hill Family, have matured to provide total privacy. A patio withbuilt-in grill and fireplace invites al fresco entertaining nearly year-round. Beginning withleaded-glass framing the front door and continuing with antique lighting and salvaged marblemantels, great care was taken to incorporate hand-crafted elements and add patina to flawlessspaces - the key to making a new house feel layered and dynamic. Quarter-sawn random-widthoak 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 telltalemodern attributes that make life easier. Another is the open kitchen design featuring a rarechestnut island and 48+G- double Wolf range. In the antique-mirrored butler+GGs pantry, a full-sizewine fridge makes choosing a vintage a quick task. Nearby French doors and clerestorywindows high over the family room pass extra light between the adjoining spaces. Twostaircases lead to 3 suites, each with beautifully finished walk-in closets, built-ins andmarble-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 topfloor suite is an apartment-sized refuge. No modern-day luxury home is complete without anoptimized lower level with zones for fitness and casual entertaining, including an authenticpub-style bar imported from the British Isles. An admirable addition to Princeton+GGs most iconicneighborhood!
