Come see the historic home that inspired Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Our Town! Situated in the heart of Moorestown, this 6,036 Sq. Ft. magnificent colonial, built in 1923, has been masterfully restored and updated to reflect today’s modern living while maintaining its original elegance and character. Nestled on .91 acres, this impeccably maintained corner lot offers privacy as well as the space to enjoy entertaining! Stroll up the circular driveway and enter through the oversized solid wood door into the grand foyer. The high ceilings, original arched windows, oak hardwood floors, and intricately designed staircase offer an impressive welcome to this fabulous home. The spacious and modernized eat-in kitchen with updated appliances (Viking gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, built-in microwave) opens to the sun-filled family room with large bay windows, a gas fireplace, and beautiful custom built-ins. Continue entertaining in the intimate dining room or make your way into the expansive game room to relax and enjoy a round of pool. The large sunroom and the screened-in porch with slate floors provide additional spaces to work and play. On the second and third floors, you will find six bedrooms that maintain the character and charm of the home with custom built-ins and spacious closets while also providing the modern convenience of four full updated bathrooms. The primary bedroom suite includes a sitting room with a built-in desk area, a walk-in closet, and a large bathroom with double vanity sinks and an oversized shower. The laundry room sits on the second floor and provides plenty of space to wash and fold with granite countertops, a full sink, and a large storage closet. Walk down the back staircase where you will land near the backdoor and mudroom area and then continue down to the carpeted finished basement that is completed by two bonus rooms that can be used for additional living space. As you walk outside, you will see the three-car detached garage with loads of storage and a stunning backyard. Entertain away in this beautifully landscaped and thoughtfully designed oasis, which includes a raised covered bluestone patio equipped with a firepit and television, a built-in Lynx gas grill, a stamped concrete patio with a stone retaining wall, low voltage landscape lighting, and a new sprinkler system. Roof and HVAC have both been recently replaced. This exceptional historic home is a must see!
