The Board of Commissioners is entering into an escrow agreement with Haddonfield Development Group, LLC for the redevelopment of Lullworth Hall. The proposed concept includes renovating the existing property into four (4) for-sale residential condominium units. Three units are proposed within the present structure; one is a to-be-built single-unit carriage house-style structure with a garage and loft.
Lullworth Hall, built in 1886 by Charles Mann, sits on 1.06 acres. It was acquired by the Bancroft School in 1919 and used as their administrative office. The building has been sitting vacant for several years and requires extensive repairs. In March of 2022, the Commissioners solicited Requests for Qualifications and Proposals to redevelop the historic building site, but they did not receive any responses. Then in September, the Commissioners signed a listing agreement with Markeim Chalmers, Inc.
Lullworth Hall is protected by an historic easement, is part of the Borough’s historic district, and is listed on the State of New Jersey Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places.
