Jaw Dropper of the Week: This Stunning Window Wall in Schwenksville is Everything
We know what you’re thinking: man, I’d really, really, reallllly love to live in a restored farmhouse near the Perkiomen Creek, but I just can’t seem to find one that has a dramatic great room with two-story fireplace and the tallest window walls not on a Center City skyscraper.
Enter this incredible estate home in Schwenksville. It’s located on 6-acres of pastoral Montgomery County land, and that window wall you’ve long desired pretty much looks out onto every single shred of it. Overlooking the great room is a loft area, which the listing states could be one helluva billiards or writer’s room (we’re paraphrasing, of course).
The home dates back to 1760, and includes various out buildings, a two-car garage, a small livestock barn and a large bank barn.
The exterior boasts a blend of stone and shingle that just screams quintessential farmhouse, and the wraparound porch really puts it over the edge. Inside, there’s a Tavern room, which is exactly what you’d expect: a largely stone room with tremendous wood beam and truss accents. Throw a hide-wrapped winged back chair and some legit beer barrels in there and you could easily reenact the Gaston scenes from Beauty and the Beast … easily.
Seriously, don’t miss this gallery.
