A hedge-fund-manager-turned-philosophy-teacher is selling his Buddhist-inspired New Jersey home.
Firebird Fund Management co-founder Daniel Cloud has listed the nine-acre Princeton property for $3.575 million, a discount to the $3.7 million he paid for it in 2007.

The property features wooded grounds, a stream and walking trails. The house has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms.
