The New Jersey house that is shaped like a cookie jar
Driving the roads of New Jersey and rolling through all sorts of neighborhoods, I often gaze at the homes. Some big. Some small. Some luxurious. Some hideous. But I'm only aware of one that looks like a big cookie jar — and it is amazing!
Let me start by saying that this home is a private residence, so there will be no open houses but below you can get a pretty good sense of this glorious home, which is located in the Glendora section of Gloucester Township.
Driving by will not do it justice as it is surrounded by a wall of trees. What do we know about this home?
- It was built in 1947, 1949, or 1964. Information is conflicting. Maybe you know?
- Features 3 floors. Bedrooms on top. Bathroom and storage on bottom. Living room and kitchen in the middle.
- The owner Robert Berman believes it was built because the original owner "was a woman from Kansas who had it built because her house kept getting whipped around in tornadoes.''
- Featured on season 1 of Offbeat America on HGTV.
- Roadside America shares, "according to legend, its curved shape was designed to survive an atomic blast." We cannot confirm that.
- It did go on the market for sale in 2017 at $165K. However, according to Zillow, it would appear that the home did not sell. You'll have to be ready to buy the next time it is available. It is a one-of-a-kind!
