Don’t even think about subdividing it. Comprised of 58 acres, this sizable Pottstown property edges into both South Coventry and East Nantmeal Townships, but cannot be separated as it is part of theFrench and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust.

Aside from the farmhouse home, the grounds include a carport with upper-level studio space, cottage overlooking a pond, three barns (14-stall, 4-stall and 3-stall) and a pool house. There are also run-in sheds and paddocks.

Features in the main residence encompass everything from a sunporch entry with skylights to an authentic country kitchen with older high-end appliances. A nearby room that’s off of the kitchen can be used as a breakfast room or additional family room. Two bonus bedrooms can be found in the attic. Gallery below

Magnificent Elverson Farmhouse on 22 Acres in Chester County

At nearly 200 years old, this Elverson farmhouse comes with an interesting Chesco back story. It was originally sold from David Potts (yes, of thatPotts family) to Chris Knauer (we would like to believe it was this Knauer but the listing doesn’t say so explicitly) in 1833. The property also adjoins the Warwick Furnace Farm, where General Washington rested his soldiers after they were defeated at the Battle of the Brandywine in 1777.

In the intervening years, owners have done a fine job of maintaining some of the colonial era finishes and upgrading others. Original moldings and trims, exposed beams and a walk-in fireplace made the cut. But Marvin windows, a deck off the master suite, central air and heated floors have also been added.

Sly Fox Tripling Capacity

Sly Fox Brewery is making a major expansion. The Phoenixville based brewery is selling its Royersford restaurant location and will begin brewing at a new 30,000 square foot facility in Pottstown.

The new brewery facility will provide Sly Fox with the ability to brew 150 hectoliters a day,  triple their current brewing capacity. A new canning line will increase the brewery’s canning capacity from 28 cans per minute to a speedy one per second.

The equipment is expected to arrive by November with the first batches being brewed before the year is out. If a zoning variance is received the brewery will have a tasting room/pub.

Sly Fox will continue to operate the Phoenixville brew pub. The Royersford location has been sold to long time Sly Fox employee and current general manager, Stacey Hebert.

We can only hope that this means our personal crusade of getting Sly Fox Helles in cans will be closer to reality.
