Louis Kahn’s ‘Clever House’ under contract

That was fast!

That was fast!

Less than two months after it first hit the market, Louis Kahn's "Clever House" in Cherry Hill is already under contract.

Listing agent Rosemary Mercanti-Anthony of BHHS Fox & Roach told us that she had eight offers for the unique home designed by the acclaimed Philadelphia architect.

"I had over 100 people – including architecture students and architects – that came to see the home," Mercanti-Anthony said. "There was a lot of interest."

The home is expected to close mid-April.

The buyers will only be the second to own the property. Kahn built the home for Fred and Elaine Clever in 1962, and it had been in the same family ever since.

The "Clever House" is in need of some updates, as the pictures show, and is being sold in "as-is" condition.

Five rooms surround the center living room, which has an 18-foot-high pyramid roof with four large glass angular gables. This design lets in a lot of natural light, which is something that Kahn specialized in.

The 1,694-square-foot residence has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It's located in a quiet part of Cherry Hill on Sherry Way, and sits on .69 acres. The home was first listed in January for $289,900.

Kahn spent five years constructing the "Clever House," which is one of nine residences he designed in the Philly region.
