Moorestown, NJ, US
1040 Riverton Road
Here's a rare opportunity to live in a Moorestown landmark: the original portion of the Joshua Lippincott House was built in 1817. Set amid 4.76 acres of landscaped privacy, its central location is just 12 miles from Center City, Philadelphia. This historic Colonial mansion is a true architectural gem with 7 bedrooms, 5 full and two half baths. Manicured grounds feature a newer architect-designed 3-bay garage, saltwater pool and spa complex with entertainment-friendly rustic stone kitchen/cabana, plus a carriage house with 4 original horse stalls and guest quarters above, ideal for multi-generational living. The first floor is a 3-bay garage plus storage space. Approached by a paved circular drive, the home's graceful proportions are enhanced by a wraparound covered front porch, charming rear porches and a bluestone patio, while a covered porte-cochere with side entry leads toward the garage. Vintage details include crown dentil moldings, dimensional woodwork, leaded glass windows, hardwood floors, 3 ornately-mantled fireplaces and magnificent working pocket doors. Updated baths, a renovated kitchen and expansive rooms throughout welcome grand events or quiet relaxation. All just minutes from shops, schools, restaurants and I-295 in a magical setting.
