c. 1795 Colonial

Malvern, Pennsylvania 19355

Own a Piece of History Just Outside Valley Forge National Park


Welcome to a very special listing available to the market for the first time in over 55 years. This historical home was originally built in 1792 with additions added in 1830 and 1976 with an unparalleled attention to detail and craftsmanship as well as the strictest attention to period integrity.

Despite the age of the house, the ceilings are surprisingly higher than one would expect: nearly 8 feet in the original section of the house and 8 1/2 feet in the 1830 addition. The 1976 addition added big skylights to make that room feel open.

Enter the expansive park-like property from one of two entrances of the recently repaved horseshoe driveway and you are immediately taken back in time to imagine life in the 1700s without electricity, modern building tools and who might have walked these grounds.

Today this 2.8acre property boasts a venerable nature preserve of mature specimen trees, fruit trees, beautiful landscaping where the deer and foxes and other wildlife roam free and a small stream to the left of the driveway (does not ever flow to the driveway or house) for a complete eco-system. There is a barn that can be used as a garage and extra storage, a former chicken coop and a peacock pen and a replica log cabin for use as a playhouse. The brick paver courtyard is an uniting feature between the bucolic exterior and the interior of this home. The owner uses this entrance as primary entrance to the home.

From the patio enter and notice the beautiful detail of the Dutch door and the hardware that has stood the test of time. The foyer sets the tone of the entire home, welcoming and spacious. Please note the immaculate woodworking details throughout the home: raised paneling, built-ins, etc.

The hardwood flooring on the main level was replaced approximately 20 years ago to replicate the original random width planking on the second and third floors. All the flooring was recently refinished. From the foyer pass to the front and the original section of the house with a living room and a dining area.

The kitchen is accessed from the foyer and the dining room and has tall 42" cabinets and additional built-in storage. From the kitchen access the warm and inviting family room area with large walk-in fireplace and a breakfast area. The skylights provide additional openness to this room and spectacular views of the large tree that probably has been around as long as the house.

From the foyer find a remodeled staircase that is also unique to older homes to allow easier access to the bedroom levels. On the second level you will find three spacious bedrooms and one has an ensuite bathroom and another hall bathroom.

Up a flight of stairs you will find the attic level with two large rooms which were recently made much more useable with the addition of two top-of-the-line Mitsubishi wall split air conditioners (with supplemental heating as well). One of these rooms could be a bedroom and the other a playroom or office. The 8x8 room is directly above the hall bathroom below and could be a possible 3rd bathroom.

Please come and join me at one of the Open Houses and experience in person this amazing historical property in the most peaceful park like setting, but close to all amenities such as shopping at the Town Center in Malvern or KoP, transportation of 202, the turnpike or the Paoli Amtrak and Septa train station and recreation spaces of Valley Forge National Park and Wilson Farm Park.
