House of the Week: Is This the Coolest Mansion in Moorestown?
In Latin, tabula rasa means “scraped tablet.” In the current vernacular we say “clean slate.” It just so happens that this Jersey home has the term for its name. And actually, Tabula Rasa’s title fits it: the property, built circa 1819 by Josiah Lippincott, a Moorestown founder, faced possible demolition at one point.
Luckily, it was saved and went on to be renovated and expanded. The clean slate it was afforded has resulted in what is possibly the coolest house we’ve seen in awhile. Here’s a list of fun features the home offers:
- two-lane bowling alley
- indoor basketball court
- virtual golf driving range
- two-story ballroom
- home theater
- card room
- billiards room
- 2 full basement bars
The property also has two kitchens, two laundry rooms, and finish carpentry inspired by Carpenter’s Hall in Philadelphia.
