Location: Hopewell, N.J.
Price: $1,650,000
The Skinny: A '70s relic with modernist leanings in Hopewell, New Jersey, has been bouncing on and off the market since 2010. Recently relisted with Keller Williams (no, not that Keller Williams), it's been reduced in price from $2.75M to $1.65M. The 3,750-square-foot home was designed by architect Philip Collin (no, not that guy), who was trained at Princeton and contributed a spiraling pavilion to the 1964 New York World's Fair. For this home, built in 1970 and sited on 42 acres, Collin filled in a stone and cedar frame with white walls and large floor-to-ceiling windows. The living room at the center has a wet bar and a sunken seating area—one of those groovy and ill-fated residential relics that are so abhorred they just have to be due for a comeback—and clerestories in the interior walls that keep it and the bedrooms very bright. The carpet and the tile aren't doing the place any favors, but that's a pretty simple fix. Also included: a pool, a small guesthouse, and an odd, yellow-green basement.
