If Park Avenue sophistication on a spacious wooded lot in a tony Princeton neighborhood appeals to you, consider this. A prime opportunity to step in and complete the renovation to your design aesthetic is easily attainable at this already very unique house. Current owners could not pass up the need to take over a large family property and are leaving behind a project where the fun stuff was about to begin after upgrading systems and making the house ready for long term enjoyment. Large rooms with tall streamlined doors, windows stacked floor to ceiling, and discreet storage are standard throughout. The spaces are ideal for entertaining, showcasing art of any style, and just calming the mind. Constructed for Joseph Esrey Johnson, a U.N. delegate and president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the larger than average scale of the rooms makes sense. Designed by the husband and wife architectural team, Victorine DuPont Homsey and Samuel Homsey, who were much in-demand after successfully completing several important museums. A pair of hefty entrance doors set the mid-century modern tone and open into a central gallery space with a terrazzo floor under a large skylight. Different functions radiate on three sides from this dramatic core, giving a great flow for public spaces, while keeping intimate spaces private. Living and dining rooms, as well as the kitchen, also flow out seamlessly to a brand new deck. Three spacious bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and three fireplaces, one of which is in a lower-level family room filled with light. Architecture aficionados, as well as most everybody else, will appreciate the J.W. Fiske & Co. spiral staircase. With a state of the art roof and all major systems replaced within the last few years, this is a fortunate situation for admirers of good design!
