About 61 Westcott Road

With sophisticated additions by Michael Graves and local architect Ron Berlin, this superlative Western Section colonial beautifully pairs the classic with the dynamic. A surprisingly large and superlative English park-inspired sloping rear garden is overlooked by two terraces, offering multiple sitting areas for reflection and repose. In the house and designed by Graves, a generous open family room/kitchen with floor to ceiling windows and a curved glass block wall brings the incredible light and splendor of the gardens right in. Other holiday-sized formal room combinations allow dinner-party seating for more than 20 or lead to special, tucked-away spaces like a glass-framed study with more exquisite garden views, or a windowed octagon with a hand-painted floor, perfect for sun-accompanied small breakfasts. Another large living room, with fireplace, and a powder room complete the first floor. An attached "cottage" adjacent to the garden with its own bath and entrance provides additional accommodation for a variety of pursuits. The second floor landing leads to three bedrooms including a regal master suite with two marble baths, one elegantly designed with a vaulted ceiling and generous windows out to the garden and a double tub, all divinely lit, and an adjacent dressing area – the other, more modest and practical, with an adjacent small, private gym. Another bedroom, also Graves-designed, has a light well, curved bookcases and an incredible floor to ceiling wall mural by Graves. The adjacent 'jack-and-jill' bath, with an amusing ventilation feature from the Alps, connects to a third large light-filled bedroom which includes another beautiful windowed octagonal area toward the front for a variety of creative pursuits, computer activity, or business. The top floor offers two large bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling, with a shared full bath, ready for the younger set. An unusual and truly sophisticated offering in the heart of the western section of Princeton, this property is not to be missed!
