    Description

    This is the home that love built. The home was a wedding gift from Frank Bobbitt to his daughter, Lydia Pratt Bobbitt and loving son-in-law Dr. Emlen Stokes. Steeped not only in Moorestown history, but the history of America's greatest families and fortunes. The Bobbitt and Stokes family trace their lineage to the founders of American Eastern Kodak, Borax, Pratt institute, the New York Board of Education, and Standard Oil, to name a few. A fantasy of history, combined with a quality of craftsmanship and details, completely modernized for the 21st century. The story of this home is evidenced by the lovingly designed architectural details, quality of craftsmanship, and property grandeur. Over 10,000 square feet the estate rests on 5.5 acres of lush landscaping, century old English secret gardens and features a perfectly designed horticultural growing condition greenhouse, Fire pits, a lavish pool and two spectacular fountains. This 1920's manor has updated modern amenities from the 21st century and is waiting a buying loving and decorative touch. The grand entrance to this 3-floor fantasy estate house opens to 10-foot ceilings with crown plaster molding details, solid mahogany wood pocket doors, teak floors and a coffered ceiling grand dining area. Custom milled wood graces the office, library 4 gas fireplaces, and hand fired etched glass. All millwork and glasswork was handcrafted by the finest artists from the 1920s. One of America's first electric refrigerators graces the 1920's butlers' pantry and catering zone. New 17 Zone heating and air conditioning, including radiant heat in the kitchen floors turns 1920s charm into 2017 comfort. A truly spacious kitchen complements the outdoor entertaining area with indoor luxury. The kitchen is designed around an outsize centrally positioned island counter. A dramatic balcony delivers second floor views of the kitchen. Upstairs leads to 7 oversized bedrooms and a master suite with dramatic walk-in Clive Christian closet/dressing room and adjoining bath w/ radiant floor heat & steam shower. Bathrooms lend 1920s charm and a second laundry room adds modern practicality. The new buyer will bring a loving family to this home and add their own personal stamp to this singular piece of American History.
