A Home with History? Originally built as a summer home 12 miles from Philadelphia, this 1856 Federal field stone Mansion House was designed in grand style, with 12-foot ceilings on the first floor and 10-foot ceilings on the second and third floors. Valley Forge marble and antique Delft tiles line fireplace surrounds, a stately Palladium window overlooks the main stairs and custom woodwork displays the height of period craftsmanship. The Mansion House features architectural detail, loving restoration and gracious design of exquisite English-country style d~cor. A few highlights; 10-bedroom, eight bathroom home, elegant formal living room?flanked by French doors on three sides, accented by a plaster frieze, punch and gouge molding, and built-in mahogany Colonial bookcases (with 13 panes)?is intimate enough for conversation and grand enough for a piano and two chandeliers. The former dining room, with original floors and a massive carved mantle, now serves as the billiards room attracting all ages, while the large, sunny, garden-view solarium beckons those seeking quiet time. The spacious dining room boasts room for a table seating 12, plus a window nook for more. The adjacent modern kitchen is any chef's dream, with modern appliances, three ovens, miles of counters and a large butler's pantry. There is a separate laundry room with large folding table?the scale throughout is spacious. Back stairs lead to a private 650-foot apartment within the mansion. Bedrooms of all sizes?many with fireplaces, sitting areas and private bath. A full attic and basement for additional storage space. The beautifully landscaped 6.6-acre property boasts specimen oak, hickory, cypress, magnolia and copper beech trees, plus mature rose gardens, koi pond and life-sized chess set. In addition to the main house, there are two cottages, (both with living room, dining room, kitchen and two bedrooms), four-bay garage, three-stall barn, 2.5-acre fenced paddock with turnout shed, and two-story tool shed. Currently licensed and operated as Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast. Property address also know as 115 Indian Springs Drive, Media PA
