From the Zillow listing:

STRUCTURE ONLY, WHICH MUST BE MOVED – This offering does NOT include the land. – Calling all history buffs and mid-century modern enthusiasts! Now is your chance to own a piece of Princeton’s past with this one-of-a-kind Mid-Century Modern house designed by Wynant D. Vanderpool, Jr. for celebrated mathematician Atle Selberg. Currently located in the Institute for Advanced Study neighborhood, this residence has been recognized as significant due to both its design and Selberg’s important work. Only the structure is being sold and it must be relocated. However, given its history and wonderful bones, it will be well worth it. They just do not build houses like this anymore! This rare find features a classic overhanging flat roof, center chimney block, big windows and doors that bring nature inside throughout the living and dining areas, three bedrooms, a year-round sunroom, a home office with its own entrance, and a spacious kitchen with a breakfast nook. Stone and wood floors tie the rooms together. This is an unrivaled opportunity to preserve a piece of Princeton’s history while creating new memories in a location of your choosing. While currently located within the Princeton Public School district, the municipality where the house is moved will determine where students will attend public schools.
