A HISTORIAN'S DREAM! This sprawling estate dates back to William Penn and has historical documents to prove it! This 11.68 acre property includes an original, working beehive oven, stone wash table from 1738, and many other unique built-ins and craftsmanship marking the settlement era. The main house has Shaker shingles and boasts a bright kitchen, with glass cabinets, book-shelves, double-ovens, and butcher-block island. Eat in the sunny breakfast room, with windows on three sides, or in the formal dining room which has a real working fireplace, one of three total on the first floor. A beehive oven with the authentic wash table are located in a sitting room, a perfect place to relax and reflect on the beauty of the property. A usable and comfortable office space doubles as a hallway for guests to make their way to the large formal living room with an over-sized working fireplace, an entrance to a serene screened-in porch, and a handcrafted staircase leading to the upstairs quarters. Four bedrooms grace the second floor, one more welcoming and cozier than the next. The master bedroom has gorgeous ceilings with exposed beams, a bathroom and dressing room and two closets. Hardwood floors, storage and bathrooms are additional pluses for this colonial home, not the norm for the time period it was originally constructed. On the third floor, additional sleeping quarters and another full bath make the total count six bedrooms. A swimming pool with pool house and perennial garden, lush landscaping, trees galore, original barn (houses a studio apartment with loft, tons of storage space) and stalls anchor this "gentlemen's farm" which is sub-dividable. You'll truly be "away from it all" on this beautiful, one-of-a-kind property in sought after Horsham School District. Minutes to shopping, restaurants, parks,schools and train.
