Fernbank Farm was the 1846 summer home of Philadelphia physician James Cheston Morris, who raised Devon Cattle here.

This property offers the best of both worlds? period details, along with high-efficiency heating and cooling, new roof, updated electric, kitchen and baths.

French doors from most of the first-floor rooms provide access to covered porch and gardens. (Floor plan available to see dimensions and flow.) Entry opens to the foyer with unique herringbone hardwood floor, flanked by the living room and library/study, which flows into the dining room, and chef's kitchen with adjacent breakfast and great room. 2nd floor offers 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Third floor has 3 bedrooms and one full bath.
