Congratulates Robin Wallack

on another banner year! Platinum Level Circle of Excellence Award

Built in 1960 for Robert H. Taylor, this Princeton home is of modernist design, set back from the street, a perfect example of “less is more.” Take a few steps inside and dramatic lake views unfold, acting as the backdrop for the elegantly scaled interior spaces. The living room is over twelve feet high, having floor to ceiling windows overlooking Lake Carnegie. Virtually every room has a lake view that is hard to beat, and the lot itself slopes ever so slightly, creating easy access and entry to the lake. Offered by it’s second owner, this could be the chance of a lifetime to own such a piece of history! $1,975,000
