Farmhouse Friday: Pastoral Pottstown Estate Dates Back to the 1780’s
We don’t know if it’s the hangover from Popeadelphia or the driving rain Philly has experienced towards the end of this week, but this pastoral home in Pottstown is making us long for a good old-fashioned frolic through the sun-kissed fields of Chester County. Don’t you agree?
The historic farm estate dates back to the 1780’s, and has managed to really pull off that romantic old world aesthetic that you’re really looking for in a country home. One one hand, there is the gorgeous stone facade, manicured gardens, a fresh-water pond, multiple pastures and beautiful horse barn. On the other, you have new amenities like the master bedroom, which has a wood burning fireplace and Jacuzzi tub, and an expansive eat-in kitchen with custom walnut cabinets.
There’s also a 2-bedroom, 2-bath carriage house, which has multiple wood burning fireplaces, a laundry and garage. It would make a great in-law suite or we’re thinking it might do well as a getaway retreat on Airbnb. After all, it has a front porch that overlooks the valley that has the French Creek running right through it.
