RELIVE HISTORY IN A STORIED HOME OF THE PAST AT WHITE HORSE FARM
The original stone dwelling dates to 1770. Then in 1810 an addition with a glass-enclosed sleeping porch was erected. In 1915, the home was expanded into two stories at the rear of the house featuring a Grand Ballroom and an impressive veranda with magnificent columns dramatized.
Additionally, the property is being sold including two separate parcels (27-6A-72) (27-6A-72.1) with two separate deeds! The home is on 3/4 acres and the barn sits on 1.1 acre both of which are included in the total price!
White Horse Farm was the residence of Elijah F. Pennypacker, a member of the PA State legislature until he retired from politics to support the antislavery movement. The farm became a hub on the Underground Railroad. The home is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The tunnel where runaways traveled through seeking freedom was hidden in the farmhouse basement and led to the barn. Though covered, it is still evident today.
The wonderment of White Horse Farm appeals to historic home purists who appreciate its epic past and current potential. The stately mansion offers 5 bedrooms and 3 full-and-2-half baths. Fireplaces (some converted to gas) grace nearly every room, and original millwork, shadow boxes, tray ceilings, and rich wood floors are reminiscent of the quality demanded by America s early homeowners.
Among its countless high points are the ballroom w/10'ceiling (now used as a fabulous multi-purpose Great Room) adjoining room has a wet bar, brick FP and PR. Guests can also enter the party from outside. Amazing Home For Entertaining.
The island kitchen is punctuated with a 6-burner Viking gas stove, double oven, built-in pantry cabinet, and new $12,000 sub-zero refrigerator. Adjoining breakfast room w/ butler s pantry and PR. Warmth and charm distinguishes the classic DR that is enhanced by another butler area, built-in cabinetry, original floors, and a direct entrance. Large laundry and mudroom on first floor.
A study, perfect for home office or library, is cozy and comfortable. This original living area is where legend says wives gathered during the Civil War to sew soldiers uniforms. A newer sunroom addition, dazzling in light from greenhouse windows and sliding doors is yet another spot to sit back and enjoy life.
Upstairs, plentiful window seats provide view space at its finest. Look out on lush greenery, dogwood blossoms, and flowers galore. The primary suite w/gas FP has a large sitting/dressing room and bath, complete with a Jacuzzi tub and private shower. An adjacent room can serve as a nursery, office. There are 3 more bedrooms, one with a private bath. Another bath is shared and there's a common computer/office/dressing area in between.
The centerpiece of the completely fenced-in backyard is a large swimming pool situated by a cabana, which includes a full bath w/shower. A versatile paver patio provides ample lounging space for swimmers and sunbathers. More leisure time awaits in the recreation/sunroom that can be entered from the pool area.
Additionally, it is enhanced by new roof, high ceilings, myriad-built ins. There is a spring house and the separately deeded lot where the 24'x 46' barn sits. The barn can accommodate many uses - more garage space, storage, party room, workshop, convert to another home.... Other advantages are natural gas heat, central a/c, public water and sewer, a 3-car garage, and 2 new heaters. This is a fascinating singular home where one can write their own history.
