Welcome to the historic district of the quaint village of Alloway Township in the heart of Salem County. This home, circa 1848, is a staple of this community and rich with history. Builders of this estate operated a shipyard along the Alloway Creek between 1831 to 1859. As you enter the grand foyer of the home, you will be greeted by beauty and tranquility. To the left is the spacious formal living room with beautiful wood flooring, crown molding and marble fireplace. The journey continues to the right as you enter the formal dining room, again with the same wood flooring, moldings and fireplace along with longer ~almost~ floor-to-ceiling windows. Circle around to the eat-in kitchen that is almost as large as the dining room. 2 sinks, island for plenty of seating, wall ovens, plenty of storage and plenty of light! Continuing the journey, you will pass a half bath perfectly positioned under the staircase, a main floor laundry and then into the cozy family room with wooden built-ins, moldings and fireplace. Moving to the upper levels, one will experience the same glamour and craftsmanship throughout the main bed and bath suite and the other 3 bedrooms and hall bath on level 2. Then, practically repeating itself on level 3, one will find an additional 4 bedrooms and hall bath. Yes, 8 bedrooms in total. There is a full, unfinished basement, that has a clean slate to do with as needed. The brick exterior boasts the old-world charm. The rear wrap-around screened in porch is spacious to continue one~s journey to the outdoor living space. A farm building and bonnet shed are also on the grounds. The Historical Society and other local organizations provide many opportunities to highlight Alloway TWP~s history and heritage. Located just a few hours from NYC, less than 45 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport, 15 minutes to major highways (including 295 & NJ Turnpike) and less than an hour to the New Jersey beaches. A must-see home in the friendly neighborhood of historic Alloway Township!
