This 7140 sq. ft. two and a half story 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Moorestown is filled with charm and history. Lovingly restored in 2015 by the current owner, well-appointed renovations have seamlessly preserved the old and blended the new. The current owner worked closely with an architect, builder and structural engineer to bring the home into code compliance while being careful to not compromise the aesthetics and character.
