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.

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.
