Fabulous Suburban Estate - This 6,000 sqft Farmhouse sits atop 10+ acres overlooking a picturesque creek, large pond with gazebo, pasture, and woods. The views from house to pond are arguably the best in the county! The property is a gorgeous blend of beautiful gardens, manicured lawn, and natural woodlands, providing a haven for birds and wildlife. Even better, the Farmhouse was built in 1979 to replicate a historic home, but with all modern amenities. The authentic historic look includes hardwood floors (with cut nails) throughout, four fireplaces, thick stone walls, period front staircase, and many more features. Behind the Farmhouse you will enjoy the very private fenced-in and unusually large Anthony in-ground pool area. You must see the LR, DR, Office, Kitchen and Family Rooms to appreciate its 1776 American Independence era look. Moldings galore, four bedrooms, 3 and laundry room are located on the second floor. There are 4 ~ baths total, and don't forget the large floored attic space. The Finished Basement Level could easily become a family entertainment center, au-pair suite, or sizable home office or workshop with its several accesses, a plumbed full bathroom, tons of storage, and room for a kitchen and bedrooms. A Fitness Center is currently located in one of the many rooms on this level. An equestrian or hiker~s dream, this property abuts the Darlington Trail which is part of the Middletown Township Trail System. The Darlington Trail joins the Wawa Trail, which joins Tyler Arboretum, which joins Ridley Creek State Park - so hundreds of miles of trails are right out your front door. Though the house was built more recently, the property dates back to the original William Penn Land Grant in Middletown Twp, Delaware County, PA. The farm~s former owners include Sharpless, Darlington, Wood, and Bosacco as well as many others. A silo, art studio, and remains of a stone barn add to your range of possibilities. This property is a totally unique, absolutely gorgeous gentleman~s farm that is still within easy commuting distance by train or car to Center City Philadelphia, sits in the award-winning Rosetree/Media School District, and is convenient to major shopping centers, highways, and the airport.
