Incredible NEW PRICE! Circa 1851 Federal Colonial BEAUTIFUL EXACTING RESTORATION with 4 car garage and Central Air on 3.5 acres!"Penn View" was named by John and Mary Thompson, the Quakers who built the home which at one time was considered to be in DE right on the state line. The 1889 resurveying of the arc line between the states, determined it to actually be in Pennsylvania. One of the most beautifully cared for vintage properties we have seen in the most amazing location. Incredible opportunity to own a piece of history just a stones throw from the Delaware line and backing directly up to the 1000 acre White Clay Preserve. Pristine nearly 3.5 acres of ground with multiple gardens and framed by mature forest. The beautiful 3 story federal style home was restored and improved in keeping with the integrity of the period over the past 17 years by exacting owner. 5772 Square feet of living space with 7 Bedrooms and many gathering areas including a fabulous screened porch/3 season room overlooking the picturesque yard. Ceilings are 10' on the first floor, 9' on the second and 8' on the 3rd. Very thoughtfully and symmetrically built, the windows are also to scale as you ascend the structure. Nearly all of the wood floors on all 3 floors are original heart pine. There is an original root cellar on a level lower than the beautiful reparged basement. So many important improvements like dual zoned CENTRAL AIR! New boilers in 2002. The screened porch has amazing private views, and exposed stone areas. 15 minutes from the University of DE, 20 minutes from Longwood Gardens, and hiking/nature activities right out the back door make this a rare opportunity for possible B&B. New multi-zoned central air! FOUR car custom amish-built garage. This one must be toured to fully appreciate.
