About 1602 Great Road

This one-of-a-kind home, designed by renowned Princeton architect Jerry Ford and styled after a Lake Tahoe ski chalet, is located one mile from the Princeton border within the highly regarded Montgomery school system. Distinctively planned, this exceptional home was built with a passive solar design that collects solar energy in a greenhouse and passively allows the warm air to circulate around the house between two sets of walls. The double building envelope embraces the home’s connection to the outdoors with high angled windows, a timber ceiling, and exposed brick walls. An east-facing entry with a double closet introduces. Down a few steps, the great room is a space that can host large gatherings just as easily as it accommodates every other day of the year. Here, a large year-round, south-facing greenhouse serves as the source of this home’s passive energy. In recent years, three-zone heating and cooling systems were also added to supplement the passive solar. The kitchen and a full bath fan off the great room and above, two of three bedrooms have Juliet balconies that overlook the greenhouse, making almost every room feel one with nature. A full bath with eye-catching Italian tile flooring is also on the second floor. In the bedrooms and in the oversized two-car garage with a storage room, there’s no shortage of space to keep things tidy. You’ll be hard-pressed to find such a standout home so close to Princeton with Montgomery schools at this value-packed price!
