This stately and historic 18th century Georgian colonial farmhouse combines unique curb appeal, expansive grounds and modern upgrades to provide for luxurious living and entertaining. Built circa 1720 by one of the first settlers to the Cherry Hill area, the home sits well back off the road offering quiet, peace and tranquility on over 1.6 acres of park-like land which backup to township property preserved from further development. Meticulously maintained by the current owners, the home has retained many of its historic features and is in pristine move-in condition. The beauty of the home is evident as one approaches through the 250 foot long driveway that passes through a canopy of maple trees. The exterior brick front formal entrance welcomes you inside to the traditional center hall. First floor highlights include a dining room and expansive great room with 19th century architectural details, original wide plank flooring, traditional moldings, closets and built-in cabinets, as well as a kitchen with two original brick archways. The main parlor and dining rooms have three wood burning fireplaces with wood mantles and brick/marble hearths. Off the kitchen is the laundry room with cabinet storage and a convenient side entrance door. In 2006, a 700+ sq ft addition (all permitted work) was added to the first floor to include a breakfast/eating room (with a walk-in pantry), a large and sunny bonus room with extensive shelving, a gym/dance room with abundant natural light and special dance flooring, a bedroom and a bathroom with stall shower. The formal banistered center hall staircase leads to the second floor, with three large bedrooms (each with hardwood floors and wood-burning fireplaces) and two modern full bathrooms, one with a jacuzzi. An additional flight of stairs leads to two additional large rooms with closets and plank flooring on the third floor. Another feature is a large parking area that can easily hold 8 cars and an oversized 56 x 30 foot 4 bay carriage house/garage with new garage doors and electrical wiring. This amount of garage space in a residential setting is unique with a potential limited only by one~s imagination. The location is excellent, in prestigious east Cherry Hill with an outstanding school system and easy access to Routes 70 and 73. The high speed line to Philadelphia is within an easy 15 minute drive.
