Description for 108 Clover Lane Princeton, NJ 08540
One of just 34 homes in the very special and historically significant Deer Path-Clover Lane section of Princeton~s beloved Littlebrook neighborhood, 108 Clover Lane~s modest cedar-sided facade belies the expansive floor plan that lies within. Authentically mid-century modern, the home was built in the mid-1950s, with a two-story addition designed by celebrated, Princeton-based architect Michael Graves constructed in the 1980s, and a second expansion in 2013 that added a powder room and an additional bedroom with its own entrance. The result is a cohesive, well-thought-out home with all the hallmarks of its original David Savage design, with the exception of the carport, which was converted into a two-car garage during the 2013 expansion. The current owner, once a notable architect himself, commissioned a custom-built garage door of translucent glass with red mullions to maintain the architectural integrity of the home. Inside, the home has been given new life with updates to all aspects of the home, from behind-the-scenes items like the electrical system, plumbing, heating and central air conditioning, to the more obvious like new roof and windows, fresh paint throughout, refinished hardwood floors, meticulously updated baths with Michael Graves lighting fixtures and Michael Graves tile and from the 1970s to create cohesion with the addition, and most recently, a custom, state-of-the-art kitchen completed in 2018. The Wood-Mode birdseye maple and cherry finish cabinets with minimalist nickel hardware are both in keeping with the home~s distinctive architectural style and timeless, all at once. The honed absolute black granite counter tops provide a beautiful contrast to the light cabinetry and stainless steel Fisher Paykel appliances. Sliding glass doors line the back wall of the kitchen, letting in natural light and allowing access to the bluestone patio and fully-fenced backyard. A modern take on the sliding barn door separates the dining room from the kitchen while adding a touch of industrial chic. The main hall runs from the front door to the back door, with a gallery wall along one side with prominent spot lighting. The living room is centered by a gas fireplace with a custom molding mimicking the molding on the exterior of the Michael Graves addition, visible just outside the oversized living room windows. At the very back of the house, the two-story Michael Graves addition creates a family room on the first floor and a master suite with a study/sitting area and full bath on the second floor. Beautifully integrated from within, the careful and deliberate exterior design carries the cedar siding from the original home through the base of the addition, creating a continuity when viewing the home from the backyard. The front yard features bluestone walkways leading to a central courtyard and accentuated by flowering trees, adding to the appeal of a home that was already built in harmony with its surroundings. This unique neighborhood is not only beloved for its distinctive architecture, but also for its enviable location, just blocks from the Littlebrook School and Princeton Shopping Center, and minutes from downtown Princeton.
