    Description

    It's no wonder this mid-century modern residence incorporates some of the best elements of striking public buildings of its time (1955). The husband and wife architectural team, Victorine DuPont Homsey and Samuel Homsey, who designed it, were much in-demand after successfully completing several important museums. Favoring large rooms with tall streamlined doors, windows stacked floor to ceiling, and discreet storage, the spaces are ideal for entertaining, showcasing art of any style, and just calming the mind. Joseph Esrey Johnson, a U.N. delegate and president of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, commissioned the house as his summer retreat, surely did all three on the substantial wooded Princeton property above a stream. Johnson used the house as his home-base while serving the United Nations. Imagine the array of guests welcomed into the grand terrazzo foyer and the tales the thick plaster walls could tell. In addition to the high level discussions many gala parties were hosted here. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and 3 fireplaces, one of which is in a lower-level family room filled with light. Skylights also funnel sunshine into a circular stairwell, as well as the central gallery. The living and dining rooms, as well as the kitchen, flow out seamlessly to a brand new deck. With all major systems replaced within the last few years along with a brand new roof, this storied property awaits its final cosmetic touches to begin its next chapter in time. What a fortunate situation for admirers of good design!
