Firebird Co-Founder Lists 'Buddhist-Inspired' Princeton House

Jun 20 2013 | 10:38am ET

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. Currently a philosophy lecturer at Princeton University, Cloud told The Wall Street Journal that the 7,000-square-foot home was simply "too much house for one person."

The home was renovated and expanded in 2005 with an eye towards the Buddhist notion of "three worlds," architect Jim Garrison said.

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