About 83 Allison Road

Positioned on a one-way street favored for its immediate proximity to campus, town and parks, this authentic mid-century modern home is sheltered by an array of curated plantings on a deep lot. Mrs. Fong’s expertly designed gardens with a gazebo and koi pond are so peaceful they feel otherworldly. This is merely one of many intriguing spaces cherished by the art-loving owners. Professor Fong, creator of the Asian Art Museum within the Metropolitan Museum of Art and trusted advisor to world-renowned collectors, often gathered with his Princeton students and illustrious peers around the fireplace of the dramatic sunken living room to engage in lively discussion about art and culture. History and art lovers will appreciate that Douglas Dillon, Brooke Astor, John Elliot, and Oscar Tang are just some who enjoyed visiting this home. The large communal spaces of the main floor are strategically arranged to foster an easy flow for entertaining. Remarkably spacious, the kitchen can accommodate every possible commercial-sized appliance along with an expansive island and dining. The adjoining dining or family room has lovely hardwood floors, a second fireplace and glass doors to the deck. A private wing houses 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, including a potential main suite. The larger main suite is enhanced by a vaulted ceiling, clerestory windows, 2 bathrooms and an atrium. While 2 airy spaces on the second floor are inspiring havens for study, work and creativity, they could also be enviable hang-out areas for the younger set, the home gym of your dreams or more bedrooms, ideal for guests. While new 6” gutters and downspouts, fresh paint and a clean-as-can-be semi-finished basement are evidence of loving upkeep, many spaces are ready for a new modern look.
