Clocktower Farm Is Now On the Market

Just look outside to check the time.

The first clock tower ever to exist was purportedly built in China circa 1094. Supposedly, a Buddhist monk spent six years working on it and used water power to keep it running. The story doesn’t exactly have a happy ending (read it here), but a little background on the structure could enhance appreciation for Clocktower Farm.

Listed just three days ago, Clocktower Farm is an Colonial manor situated on less than eight acres of private land. In addition to the premises including a barn, riding paddock, workshop, and pool, the aptly named property also has a five-story clock tower.

Inside the home you’ll find an open two-story staircase, 11-foot ceilings, ten fireplaces, and historic millwork. Hardwood floors are throughout the residence, and across the street is the Applebrook Country Club. It is also near the Paoli train station and major highways for direct access to Center City, Wilmington, or the airport.

    The Clock Tower property and home is absolutely amazing. I have been fortunate to visit many times to swim in the salted pool and attend a very fun Halloween Party. The restoration looks fabulous. The Clock Tower is very cool to climb to the top and see all of Apple Brook Country Club. This beautiful Historic home is a must see property.
