Description

Welcome to Cherry Cottage. This one-of-a-kind property is for sale for the first time in 25 years. Originally part of a land grant +G+Lamborne+G- in 1681, the current house was built in 1797 and expanded twice. Originally a 138-acre farm, the remaining 1.7 acres includes the main house, 1500 sq ft barn, in-ground pool, springhouse ruins and pond. The house has been fitted with a high-efficiency natural gas hydronic heat system as well as updated plumbing including a first-floor powder room, three modern baths on the 2nd floor and provision for two additional baths on the 3rd floor. The well was replaced in 2005 with a very productive deep well. A 200-amp electrical service and lighting has been updated throughout. The walls are 20+G- thick stone and insulation has been retrofitted whenever renovations were performed. Air conditioning is seldom required due to the mass of the stone. Floors, stairs, and central beams have been reinforced. Original leaky single-pane windows have been replaced with double-pane vinyl-clad wood windows. The expansive kitchen was designed for serious cooking and entertaining; with dual sinks, multiple workstations, and plenty of lighting. The 1st floor center hallway is 9+GG wide and runs the entire depth of the house. Guests can comfortably flow from large rooms that connect to the hallway. The +G+breakfast+G- room in the back of the house opens onto a spacious three-tiered deck. Dual exits from the deck lead to the in-ground pool and fenced-in garden. A doorway from the lower level also opens into the lower garden. In addition to the rear entertaining space, French doors from the living room open onto an enclosed side porch, a place for bird watching, sunsets, snowstorms, brunch and more. The basement is currently being used as an exercise/entertainment space. At the rear of the property is a 1500 ft2 2-story barn currently used for garden and automotive supplies. This could be converted into an in-law suite/apartment. The private space on the upper floors is designed for a large family or guests. The master suite includes the master bedroom, bath with clawfoot tub and shower, walk-in closet, and home office. There are three additional bedrooms and two additional baths on the 2nd floor. The newest bath includes a +G+wet room+G- with shower and soaking tub. The 3rd floor consists of two additional bedrooms, a 2nd home office. The yard is large and connects to Lenni Park which includes baseball, basketball, playground, and fields. This rare property is located in the Award-Winning Rose Tree Media Schools, has easy access to major highways, great shopping and the Philadelphia airport are nearby. Call today for your private tour. Agent can share the additional history of this spectacular property.
