Basque-Style Home Blazes Across the Market
The Basque Country and its culture are one of a kind, but to find a home inspired by its architectural stylings is even more rare. Truly an unexpected find, this Moorestown gem whose design was inspired by the French portion is situated along the boating and fishing-friendly Strawbridge Lake, which has a park with playgrounds and picnic spaces right across the bank.
Thus, it’s without surprise that the home–listed just last month–is now pending sale. The custom-built property was built in the Basque cottage house style circa 1970 by an artist. Inside the home, Botticino marble floors cover the foyer and there are “Peek-a-Boo” fireplaces throughout. Additionally, the tall window in one of the sitting areas has a Church-like lunette with colorful designs, a feature echoed back in the wine cellar’s distinctly arched doors that look to be made of stained glass.
Other perks: An open kitchen and informal dining area with banquette seating, formal dining room, entertainment room, bar area, and gym space.
