Single Family Home for sale
"Never judge a house by its cover, and this home, which I affectionately call the Magical House, perfectly exemplifies that sentiment. This incredible property boasts 4 bedrooms, 3 and a half baths, and has been a cherished space where laughter and love have filled the years. Nestled within the Stanwick Glen development of Moorestown, NJ, this magnificent home originally built in the 1960s by the esteemed Ravikio, a prestigious resident and home builder of Moorestown.
Ravikio was known for his attention to detail and creative design elements, including beautiful wood floors, side entry garages, and convenient laundry sinks in each home. In the late 1980s, the current homeowner embarked on a remarkable journey to expand and enhance the house, enlisting the talents of acclaimed architect, William Roger Hanst. Hanst drew inspiration from the legendary local architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, to create an organic architectural masterpiece that harmonizes with the surrounding landscape.
The extension, masterfully crafted by Hanst, incorporated organic materials such as wood and natural stone, resulting in an open and inviting space. The use of exposed beams, high ceilings, and expansive walls of glass fills the home with abundant natural light. This addition transformed the house into a passive solar home, cleverly designed to collect and retain heat from the sun, providing both summer comfort and efficient winter heating through thermal mass materials.
The home's interior is a true entertainer's dream, boasting a large dining room, a creatively designed kitchen, a charming pub, and an oversized great room just waiting to host its next family gathering. Upstairs, you'll find four additional bedrooms and three full baths, ensuring ample space for everyone. The half-finished basement offers additional versatility for recreation and storage. And let's not forget to mention the unbeatable location—truly, there is no better place to call home than this!
Looking forward to envision the creative updates you could bring to this home. With its rich history, unique architectural features, and inviting spaces, the possibilities for adding your personal touch and making it truly your own are boundless.
Come and experience the enchantment of the Magical House, where architectural beauty, thoughtful design, and a warm atmosphere await you and your loved ones."
