Historical Landmark Home

Amongst Delaware's most historic homes. Originally built in Circa 1663 by 3 Swedes who constructed the original stone foundation; this home has sheltered 14 different families in its long & storied tenure. The "original" Hilltop Manor structure overlooking the Delaware River, it's been the property of names like Baynton & Perkins nearly a hundred years before the Revolutionary War. I just can't imagine what it must have felt like seeing the British Fleet sailing up the Delaware from here. In more recent years, the QEII, the New Jersey & various aircraft carriers destined for Philadelphia have passed her way. Much has been done to maintain & expand the original structure over the past 347 years. However, much remains to be done to get it back to its beautiful state of elegance. This is a wonderful opportunity to be able to add your family name as the 15th guardian of this Historical Treasure. Over an acre of former orchards on a hillside offering a "hawk's eye" view of history passing each & every day.
