Welcome to the historic district of the quaint village of Alloway Township in the heart of Salem County. The Josiah M. Reeve House circ. 1836 is a staple of this community and rich with history. Builders of this estate, brothers Josiah, William and Emmor, operated a shipyard along the Alloway Creek between 1831 ~ 1859. As you enter the grand foyer, you will see scenes depicting the history of Alloway painted over original plaster walls by Philadelphia artist B. Aden. This unique historical home has been beautifully maintained with original grand double doors, free standing spiral staircase, crown moldings, 10 fireplaces, wide plank pine flooring, hardware and wood trim throughout the entire home. The Winter Kitchen has been renovated with modern essentials; a garbage disposal, dishwasher, electric stove, custom replicated cabinets to match existing original cabinetry, and granite counter tops. The large brick basement could be converted into a wine cellar. Featuring 7 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, the home was previously opened to guest as a bed & breakfast. Situated on almost 4 1/2 acres of lush grounds with mature shade trees, brick walkways, slate patio, and screened porch, make this estate a perfect place to entertain. Zoned as "Historic Preservation / Medium Residential", the possibilities are endless; as mentioned a bed & breakfast, small reception venue, microbrewery, or a private family home as it is currently being occupied. The 30x60 two story garage outbuilding can be easily converted or repurposed to store collector's cars or a small business. (must obtain township approval prior to operating a business. Measurements are approximate.)To top off this extraordinary property, is the Captain's Walk at the top of the house! Also the original Spring House and Outhouse are still on the grounds.
