A Stitch in Time...Like a classic antique sampler, Pennsylvania history is woven into the charming framework of this meticulously restored, stone and frame Quaker Farmhouse, c.1766 with late 1800's addition, situated on lush acreage. Owned by the Brinton family for 150 years, this picturesque property was originally part of a 1600's Penn Land Grant. The careful restoration retains and highlights rare, authentic features like original wide plank oak and pumpkin pine flooring, exposed beam ceilings, original hook and latch hardware, vintage windows, 6 working fireplaces including the impressive, 1st floor walk-in with remnants of a beehive oven and even traditional Quaker/Colonial separate entry doors (sometimes designated male/female, other times as formal/informal--either way, a splendid piece of antiquity.) Wrap yourself in the rich fabric of history, display prized heirlooms or create a comfortable, eclectic blend that transcends time. Outside, bountiful privacy, fertile fields and massive shade/dogwood trees surround the charismatic farmhouse and appealing 2 story carriage house w/porch. Tall pine tree sentries shield the enticing stone fire pit and relaxation/entertaining niche situated within two remaining large, stone barn walls and adjoining dry-laid stone wall. Even cooler weather enjoyment is inviting in this pleasingly, wind-shielded, fire-warmed area! Inside, spacious rooms, filled with primitive character and detail, afford both traditional and modern room decor/usage. Current owners love having their busy lifestyle accommodated with the ample dining rm/walk-in firepl, used as a modern "keeping rm"/great rm--the comfortable gathering center. The expansive, late 1800's kitchen addition is a primer on "heart of the home"--picture happy "cookie-baking" parties in this welcoming area! Washer/Dryer/Dishwasher hide in a large closet cabinet here. The living rm w/firepl/woodstove, deep-silled original windows, chair rail and beaded, exposed beams provides a conversation sanctuary or gracious entertaining space. The comfy den is enhanced by a unique corner firepl, exposed beams, vintage trim and tile vestibule leading to the rear environs. Front and rear stairs ascend to the pleasant 2nd floor, w/additional stairs to wonderful 3rd flr hideaway office/storage. 2nd floor includes a roomy, Victorian style bath/claw foot tub/wlk-in closet, serene Master Br/firepl, cozy sitting/reading rm and 3 addtl cheerful BRs. A special property, embroidered in noteworthy detail
