Let’s head out to Chester County just west of Phoenixville for a moment to check in on a property that looks to be the quintessential farmhouse. The home dates back 269 years (!) and was later expanded to give it more space and a covered patio. We can imagine catching many a firefly on its 2.70-acres of land.

Don’t let the age fool you, it has all those much-needed modern amenities that you’ll need, including two-zone air conditioning, an in-ground pool in the yard and a workout room in the barn. Features like the two wood burning fireplaces, hardwood floors, exposed beams, farmhouse tub and dual-horse stalls in the barn call back to its workmanlike past. In other words: this place has kept it real after all these years.

Probably the most enticing thing about the home is its location near one of the many bends in French Creek. As the listing states, you can go for a tranquil hike or even take the horses out for a leisurely jaunt through beautiful Chester County. It’s also a quick trip to the Kimberton Inn and nearby Sly Fox in Phoenixville, if you’re looking for some food and local beer.

Don’t sleep on the kitchen though, especially with its large (and sunny) dining area with built-in seating.

Beds: 4
Baths: 2 full, 1 half
Square feet: 2,998
Price: $699,999
Additional Info: Barn currently houses horse stalls and workout room, Pond
