It’s a property with just a touch of the historic, but you wouldn’t notice what with all the work its had.  The main house, for example, is a newer construction with hardwood flooring, a slew of formal rooms, gourmet kitchen, and a great room with access to stone patio dining spaces. Outside, the residence has a tennis court and more than twelve acres of Delaware County land.

Before all this, however, the Harrison Estates was the site of several 18th-century structures. One that continues to stand is the historic Iddings House, which, according to an Inquirer article from April 1999, once belonged to Richard and Margaret Iddings, grandparents of Revolutionary War hero Gen. Anthony Wayne. Today, the Iddings House has been renovated with new kitchens and bathrooms and is the guest home of this property.

What’s more, there’s also a stone and siding barn attached to the main house by a covered breezeway. It too is a historic building, but it’s been renovated into a five-car garage on the first level and finished studio space on the second floor. Specs and photos below.
