Designing a home to meet your particular vision must be kind of fun, don’t you think? In the case of this South Jersey residence, it seems whoever had a say in its look was at least partially influenced by the modern aesthetics of the seventies (indeed, agent Kathleen McNamara tells us it was built circa 1978) and the light-friendly appeal of hotel suites.

Oh, did we mention it has swimming pool and deck with lounge space?

Located on a one-acre lot in Cherry Hill’s Wilderness Acres neighborhood, the John J. Olivieri-designed home features oak flooring, two functioning fireplaces (one gas; one wood), and walls of windows throughout. A two-story foyer awaits near the entrance and the kitchen, festooned with cherry cabinets and granite counters, opens to a two-story dining area with windows overlooking the pool area.

New Spa/Fitness/Nutrition Center Opening in Cherry Hill

pg3For Kate Galvez, PB3 has been more than a decade in the making. The idea of a multifaceted, holistic wellness center began as a thesis project back in 2004, when she studied interior architecture and design in college. She envisioned an all-in-one facility that incorporated yoga, meditation, fitness classes and more.

“It became a dream of mine to have a spa of my own,” she says.

After college, Galvez worked at a Philly architecture firm but became active in the local fitness community. Three years ago, she began working on a business plan that would bring her 2004 thesis to life. The result: PB3 — it stands for “Pure Body, Pure Bliss, Pure Balance” — which is set to open in Cherry Hill on April 11th.   Read more »

Moving out of this Italian-inspired estate in the Hunt Tract section of Cherry Hill is a little bittersweet for Riccardo Longo. His new restaurant/gelato and coffee bar, Gran Caffe L’Aquila at 1716 Chestnut Street, opened at the beginning of the year and Longo is looking to get back into the city. “Philadelphia was the first city I lived in when I emigrated to America as a child,” said Longo in an email. “Those early memories of South Philadelphia are very special. With my dream project now in Rittenhouse Square, the timing feels right to move back to the city that I love.”

That’s not to say he doesn’t adore his home in Cherry Hill: Read more »

Here’s your chance, people. A bona fide piece of architectural history has just hit the market.

Louis Kahn may have designed around two dozen houses in his day (Oh, and this and this and this), but only nine of these modern residences were ever built. While plaudits abound for The Esherick House or The Korman House, it’s The Clever House in Cherry Hill that’s available and could make for one hell of a restoration project. Being sold in “As-Is” condition, the house located at 417 Sherry Way in Cherry Hill is 1,694 square-feet of pure experimental modern that gives a new definition to cathedral ceilings.
