A Louis I. Kahn-designed home in Cherry Hill has just hit the market.
The "Clever House," named for the family who Kahn built the home for, was completed in 1962. It's now listed for the first time in more than 50 years for $289,900.
Kahn designed the 1,694-square-foot residence for Fred and Elaine Clever, and it has been in the same family ever since, according to listing agent Rosemary Mercanti of BHHS Fox & Roach.
"It's a magnificent home," Mercanti said. "The house is built with a center room with an 18-foot ceiling and a pyramid roof."
The home has four large triangular windows in each of the four gables that are part of the roof, which lets in a lot of natural light.
There are five rooms that surround the central living room, each with its own wood-trimmed, pyramid roof. There are three bedrooms and two baths.
The "Clever House" is located in a quiet part of Cherry Hill, and sits on .69 acres of wooded land.
Kahn spent five years constructing this home, which is one of nine residences he designed in the Philly region. According to the listing, the home is being sold in "as-is" condition.
