Princeton, New Jersey

This home was created for newlyweds moving to Princeton from Washington, D.C. As with the marriage, the house fuses common interests in literature, gardening, adventure travel, and entertaining, while allowing separate work and guests' quarters.

The plan is roughly "H" shaped with the rear flagstone court centered on an old pink flowering cherry tree and illuminated by gas lanterns. Picturesque and charming, the home adapts for cozy two person evenings or large house parties.
