A wonderful chance to own a piece of history with all the modern luxuries—a superb property originally deeded by the William Penn family and featured on the Chester County Day home tour! Rare is the opportunity to own such an extraordinary home and property!

So perfect for everyday living, intimate gatherings, and large festive affairs!

Plus irrigation system!
True to the style & design of this home's period, the new 2-story oversized (30x24) Multi-Car Garage was built with stone from the original barn’s foundation. It also features double carriage doors; generator hook-up; and a separate entrance door which opens to a staircase up to the huge second floor storage (potential for finishing!).
Other noteworthy appointments include a newer cedar roof (30-yr warranty) & heated gutters; security system; electric animal fencing; new windows in original wing; recently painted exterior & garage; newer propane hot water heating system; 5 zones of heating & air conditioning via ductless cooling inverters (so you can control individual room temps & energy usage!).
Your own personal retreat, yet so close to major routes/PA Turnpike, dining, shopping, parks, and Twin Valley Schools plus local academies.
