Sugartree Farm is the name and offering 10-plus acres, three outbuildings, and a slew of cozy home charms is its game. The property also has a conservation easement, courtesy of the current owners, which it got following several renovations, including one by noted builder John Diament who’s responsible for these gems. The coolest part of this Delco house though? Probably the family room, which has an old cooking fireplace and glass-covered dug well.

A modern cherry wood kitchen, living and dining rooms with fireplaces, and a grand center hall are some of the features you’ll find on the first level, along with a master suite addition that has a private entrance off the the living room. The original master bedroom can be found on the second floor. Home details include paneled wood doors, hardwood floors, and decorated paneling. Outside, the fieldstone Colonial main house enjoys an in-ground pool surrounded by a brick patio and a two-car garage with a two-bedroom caretaker’s apartment above it (comes with a deck to boot!). Adding to the property is a 1929 barn with eight stalls, antique cast iron stall fronts and door latches, tack room, and an office.

Joining these three structures is a two-story stone and frame “gate house.” It’s used for firewood storage and housing electrical, but it could be converted into an office or art studio.
