Old House Lovers--rare opportunity to own a historical landmark! The Samuel Shreve house was built in 1835, one of the first homes in Mt. Laurel, originally on 101 acres and at one time housed the local post office and general store. Samuel Shreve was a prolific local businessman and farmer. He was involved in a variety of businesses including Waterford Glass Works which made windows (some in the White House)and hollow ware. This Greek Revival home has been lovingly restored through the years by the owners. Some of the special features include 8 fireplaces (3 with rare Valley Forge marble), all original flooring & doors, and most of the mouldings and woodwork are original. The kitchen has soapstone countertops, copper sink, handmade tiles and a brick fireplace. The back of the home opens to an unusual screened porch (all sides) with a beautiful vaulted ceiling and outdoor Jacuzzi tub. The grounds are truly incredible with 150 year old boxwood from England, 125 year old pecan trees, wonderful gardens and lighted tennis court. The outbuildings include a most wonderful smoke house (all original interior), barn, 3-car garage and 2 additional buildings. Additional features include 2-zone A/C & gas heat and a sprinkler system covering the entire property. This is a truly special home impeccably kept and maintained. Enjoy history on a daily basis!
