This is a house a history or architecture buff will love. Built in 1751 as a blacksmith shop, with a wheelwright addition added in 1780, the building is a historic treasure. The owner has written a delightful history of the house with copies available online or at the house.
In 2001 the current owners added a lovely and spacious room and small kitchen for their parents. This now easily integrates into the main house, but is a consideration for buyers needing private space for family members. There is a ramp at the entrance to this room. The second kitchen is adjacent to the main house kitchen and makes a wonderful party kitchen.
The rest of the first floor is comprised of an open dining and living area with original beams, floors, and fireplace, and a second large room with another fireplace perfect for a family room or office. French doors open from this room to what can be used as the 4th bedroom. (This room is currently being used as a storage area as owners prepare to move.) All first floor rooms connect, making for an easy flow. Full bath plus powder room on this level. The eat in kitchen overlooks the gardens which have been carefully curated for all season bloom and interest. Second floor with 3 bedrooms and one bath. Two attics accessed by pull down stairs, both with sloped ceilings but tall enough to stand in and with windows. A stream and lovely old trees border the property, and a small koi pond enhances the garden. Spring is welcomed by a huge ornamental cherry tree. A favorite family gathering spot is the deck with wisteria trellis and serene views of the garden. Thick stone walls keep the house cool in summer and warm in winter. The owners raised their family here and have been good stewards of this fascinating property.
Minutes from vibrant Malvern borough and train station, and across the street from the historic General Warren Inn. Award winning Great Valley School District. Please note: house needs extensive exterior repairs.
