194 Kulp Road

Pottstown, PA 19465

Welcome to Covent Garden - land continuously occupied since granted by the Penn family in 1738. The earliest owners named this plantation in the mid 18th century after the fruit and vegetable markets found in London. Since then the property has served not only as a farm, but as a blacksmith shop, dairy, butcher shop, bakery and country retreat for one of Pottstown's wealthiest businessmen. The original log home gave way to the modest circa 1819 stone farm house that stands today. Original architectural details such as random width floorboards, raised panel doors, chair rail, wrought iron hardware, a Bible box and clock shelf remain preserved from this time long ago. This home also boasts one of the most extensive original open beamed floor systems in the area as well as a massive sandstone threshold which bears witness to almost 200 years of foot traffic. A circa 1850's summer kitchen contains a walk-in fireplace with a bee hive oven, separate loft and basement, and a smokehouse with red clay tile roof - perhaps the only one surviving in Chester County. In addition to the main house there is a large brick floored root cellar and a tractor shed made of wood salvaged from the original barn. This antique home has been lovingly restored to its original state while tastefully adding/upgrading modern amenities. Prepare a meal from the kitchen garden, the small orchard or berry patches. Come sit on the large front porch and watch the sunset over the neighboring pond. Or hike the 100+ acres of protected open space that are in walking distance of this colonial oasis. This home stands ready for its next caretakers to take it into its 200th year. Recent renovations include, 2005 new custom kitchen w/appliances, bathroom, new electric, well pump and newly refinished wide plank floors, 2013 new propane heating system, 2016 new septic system. Covent Garden awaits!
