Property Description:

Rare opportunity to own a 5,400+ square foot historic homestead in very desirable Charlestown Township on 66+ protected acres. This one-of-a kind property has been in the care of one family since 1960. Title has been traced to one of the original settlers of Charlestown and the parcel was within the original grant of lands made by William Penn to Charles Pickering in 1682. The original manor house was built in 1751 by Griffith Jones and expanded with a sizable addition in the mid-1800s. The 7-bedroom, center-hall colonial has 4 full and 2 half baths, high ceilings, unique millwork, hardwood floors, fireplaces, and great light throughout. The home exudes historic charm with many modern updates. Outdoors, enjoy mature gardens, a pool house and swimming pool, greenhouse, porch, additional outdoor entertaining space with a lean-to added in 2021, and 2+ miles of hiking trails throughout the property. The acreage features rolling topography with mature trees and open land with streams, all under conservation easement with French and Pickering Creeks Conservation Trust. For the horse enthusiast, this property, known for generations as Fox Hollow Farm, has two barns, an outdoor riding ring, pastures and run-in sheds. The large bank-barn has also been used as an entertaining space to host lively square dances and dinner parties. There is a 2,200 square foot secondary home (tenant house) on the property with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths and a 1-car garage underneath. The property offers country living minutes from Malvern, Kimberton, Great Valley & close to the PA turnpike and highways providing access to Philadelphia and West Chester.
