  • Property Details

    Own an historically significant federal style estate constructed during Jefferson's presidency. This masterpiece, dating from 1802 was built for the Lippincott family. It was one of the largest dairy farms in New Jersey, renovated in the 1870s by renowned architect Frank Furness. His period details make the home. Carved walnut balustrades, elaborate fireplace mantles, and artisanal hand painted tiles are all of museum quality. Pocket doors have etched glass that match the themes in the fireplace tiles. Heart pine floors and mahogany window shades are still magnificent after over 100 years of service. Even the door hardware is composed of intricate cast brass. Kitchen and baths are modern. The home sits on an expansive parkland of property, with five and a half acres of owned land, and two more acres that are township owned but are maintained and accessible only by this estate. There are 5 outbuildings on the property, which can be refitted as desired for multiple uses. These include a carriage house with post & beam construction to hold 5 cars. There is a barn; a milk house with half bath, used as an office and guest house; a smokehouse, used as a garden shed; and an ice house, in disrepair. These multiple buildings will ease the process of obtaining permits as the new owners create their own vision of the home for the next 200 years. A spacious entry foyer with carved walnut staircase is flanked by a living room and dining room, each generously sized and separated from the entry by elegant sliding doors. The living room, located to the east side of the home, has an elaborately sculpted walnut fireplace. It was in this room, at the prior owner's Steinway, that jazz legend Duke Ellington, a frequent houseguest, was inspired to compose his masterpiece, 'Suburban Beauty.' At the top of the stairs is a beautiful library with large windows and a glassed-in sleeping porch beyond, affording views of the leafy private yard. The house is secluded, about 100 yards off of Riverton Road. The backyard is expansive to accommodate your dreams. One could add formal gardens, an olympic pool and tennis courts, and still have room for a large pool house. We are offering the property at $995,000 with an allowance of $300,000 for your personal improvements. Other properties nearby are priced from $1.2 to 1.6 MM with much less property. The Zillow estimate is $629,507 on the Cinnaminson plot and $347,690 Moorestown plot that together comprise this property.
