This amazing historic home was built in 1745, with an original land grant to William Penn. Nestled on over an acre of land, the home has been thoughtfully remodeled and restored, perfectly combining old and new. The modernized, gourmet 34 handle kitchen features stainless appliances, has excellent storage and a full-sized eat in area. Off the kitchen you will find the family room, which showcases a gorgeous stone, wood burning fireplace. The elegant dining room will be a perfect place to host dinner guests. The living room boasts built ins and an original fireplace. Going up to the second floor, you'll find four generous sized bedrooms. The master bedroom has a private walk out deck and two-story dressing room. The fifth bedroom, located on the third floor, is oversized, with lots of storage and is perfect for a studio or guest room. The deep windowsills, wide wood plank and natural stone speak to a bygone age. The basement is fully finished with ample storage, an original bake oven fireplace, and a workshop. The root cellar has been converted to a wine cellar that is used year-round. The inground pool is fenced and very private but easily accessible from the yard. Additionally, there is a newly renovated oversized two car garage. A lovely mix of old and new. A true Pennsylvania stone house, very rarely seen or for sale in this area. This is a must-see home offering the new owner a forgotten charm and architecture that most can only dream of. Call today to make your showing appointment. Welcome Home!
