Property Description

Welcome to this exceptional and timeless stately home, circa 1924, where elegance and charm unite with exquisite design and historical influences. Nestled on just over 1 acre of picturesque land in the town center of Moorestown, this residence offers a spacious and tranquil setting that will captivate your heart from the moment you arrive. Contrary to the prevailing Art Deco and Neo-Gothic trends of its time, this home embraces the elements of the Federal style, popular in the late 18th to mid-19th centuries in the United States and Britain. The architectural features, such as the covered entrance and double-hung windows on the second and third floors, pay homage to the Federal style while infusing the property with sophistication and glimpses of its grand interior. As you step inside, the attention to detail becomes even more apparent. The first floor boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, accompanied by fan light window elements above them. These windows, adorned with custom shutters, exemplify the meticulous craftsmanship and provide a visually stunning impact. This is continued throughout the home with its custom, layered millwork at every turn. The exterior of the house further contributes to its dramatic and classic ambiance. Inside, the traditional center hall entrance leads to a stately living room on the left and a formal dining room on the right. For more relaxed gatherings, a screened-in porch off the dining room provides a delightful space. A meticulously designed butler's pantry with custom wood floors, a catering kitchen, and a spacious modern main kitchen with a massive island and pizza oven adorned with hand painted tiles from Italy cater to both practicality and luxury. The addition made by a previous owner expanded the home's footprint, featuring an encompassing space housing the kitchen, eat-in area, drop zone, walk-in pantry, walk-in storage area, and a den. This addition includes a full basement and an exercise space above, providing ample room for various activities and storage needs. European influences can be seen throughout the home, from light fixtures and mantles sourced from France to the Andalusian-inspired gathering room with a custom bar and terracotta tile floor, offering breathtaking views of the backyard pool. A rich mahogany library showcases coffered ceilings, stunning custom cabinetry, and a gas fireplace, creating an inviting space to read, play chess, or enjoy a movie. The basement of the home boasts a wine tasting area, a wine room, and a large craft space to indulge your artistic endeavors. The addition in the basement provides high ceilings of 10 feet or more, a kitchen, a full bathroom, a stage for theatrical pursuits, and a billiards space. On the upper levels, the primary suite impresses with his and her bathrooms, closets, custom built-ins and an office space. The remaining bedrooms on the second floor are suites, with a total of three. The third floor features a hall bathroom, two bedrooms, plus an additional spacious bedroom suite offering an updated bathroom and sitting area. The backyard is an outdoor oasis designed for your entertainment pleasure. It features a beautiful pool, spa, full outdoor kitchen, and fireplace. The bluestone slate patio with brick inlay creates a delightful pattern that harmonizes with the outdoor kitchen space, equipped with multiple grills, warming drawers and a sink. Completing the outdoor area is a three-level barn transformed into a two-car garage, awaiting your personal touches and customization. This remarkable home presents a truly unique opportunity to own one of the most exceptional properties in Moorestown, while still enjoying the convenience of being close to the vibrant coffee shops and eateries located on Main Street. Don't miss the chance to experience the perfect blend of luxury, historical charm, and modern living in this extraordinary residence.
