Painter’s Folly, the Delaware County home that once belonged to artist Howard Pyle, has had its price reduced. You’ll recall from our original post on the property–back when it was listed for $1.15 million–that it served as inspiration for four of Andrew Wyeth’s works, most notably his titular tempura Painter’s Folly. The home now claims a $995,000 price tag.

Here are some notes that should refresh your memory as to its details:

  • Situated on 3.6 acres (borders the Brandywine Battlefield Park)
  • Random-width hardwood floors
  • Extensive millwork and built-ins
  • Au pair suite with full bathroom
  • Single-bedroom carriage home with kitchen and gathering room (viable as a rental)
