This stately three and a half story Victorian Manor exudes character, beauty and warmth. The castle-like building is an architectural masterpiece of the famous Philadelphian architect Clement Remington. Built in 1895, this amazing residence has the charm of yesterday with the amenities of today. This home sits on a 125’ x 125’ lot and is just 2 blocks from the Blue-Ribbon Elizabeth Haddon Elementary School. As you approach the house, notice the gorgeous PA Ribbon and Vermont Slate roof, amazing stonework on the exterior of the home, the wall that flanks the front and side of the house, and the curved, walled steps leading to the covered front porch. The porch is the perfect place to sit and relax and enjoy the view through the arched openings. As you step inside the large, wooden Dutch-style door you will feel the warmth of the elegant foyer accented with deep windowsills, wood floors, original detailed millwork on the walls, high ceilings, stained glass windows, tin ceiling, and the grand staircase (one of two in the home). The dining room to the right flows nicely into the living room and both are large enough to host large family gatherings. The family room in the middle will become the gathering spot for sure. There’s a large cozy window seat with storage underneath tucked under the back staircase. This staircase is open to the family room showcasing the original millwork and railings as well. This room leads into the eat-in kitchen. Here you’ll find an abundance of cabinets and room for a table large enough to seat 10! This is a chef’s dream with double ovens and lots of counter workspace. There is mudroom space just inside the side door, a half bath, and sliders leading out to the newly refurbished back deck with a retractable awning. As you head up the front staircase, you will find another beautiful stained-glass window that brightens the landing. This level has 4 large bedrooms, all with beautiful wood floors and the extra-large windows with deep sills. There is a full hall bath as well. The third floor is another full level with high ceilings. It is up here that you find the primary bedroom space. There is an enormous bedroom highlighted by the two gothic arch windows and the original built in oak armoire. There is another bedroom which is currently being used as an office, and a bonus room that was turned into a glamorous dressing room. There is a full bath on this level which includes the much sought-after original claw foot tub. There is still more-a full staircase leading to the fourth floor. This is floored attic space for even more storage. The basement has wonderful play space, gym space, a separate workshop room and houses the laundry. There is an abundance of storage as well. There is an attached 2 car garage with room for toys, bikes and lawn equipment. The backyard space is a dream! It is fully fenced in and offers so much play space. Imagine the possibilities here? Pool, play-set, trampoline…….or green space to run around and play! The character and charm in this home cannot be matched. This is a one-of-a-kind home that is steps from the schools, PATCO train station, and downtown Haddonfield. Do not miss this one!
