This North American Land Trust farm consists of 5.9 acres with a converted barn home, a detached garage, wood shop and stable. The property has been occupied by the family since the 1940's when they converted it into a family home. There are 5 bedrooms 4.5 baths, and 2 fireplaces. Originally a barn, this was constructed in 1790 of field stone, mortar and chestnut beams. The original features have been incorporated into the spacious home. The kitchen was added to the original structure, with it's own separate terrace; electric and propane cooking. All three stories have a ground level entrance. The first floor opens to a covered terrace. The second floor opens to a 15 ft x 48 ft covered porch which faces southwest. The home has a private setting, surrounded by quiet woods, pasture, pond and stream. Natural light, exposed beams, oak floors, wood paneling and wrought iron hardware set the clock back to a slower, simpler way of life, out of the fast lane, into an unhurried time filled with peace. This Delaware County property is within a drive or train ride of Philadelphia, the airport, and all major roads. Within 1000 yards are hundreds of acres of preserved trails, woods, rivers and streams, thereby connecting to the state park and Chester County trails. The taxes are favorable. Agricultural income and farm credit financing are possible.
