An extraordinary stone house dating to 1727 is waiting for you to be its next steward. Fire Creek Farm is a special property with two exceptional but different homes sitting far back from the road and each other. A serene and bucolic environment awaits a discerning buyer that appreciates the convenient location and its privacy. The historic main house with 3-levels of living space has updated utilities and every modern convenience you expect while retaining the character of what once was a wealthy landowner's home. Featuring high beamed ceilings and five fireplaces, including the beehive oven once used as the local bakery, it has wide plank pumpkin pine flooring, rich patina wood paneled walls, deep sill windows and original millwork, doors and hardware that attest to its provenance. Closets in unexpected places are everywhere. An updated kitchen, heated solarium and stone & glass-walled breakfast room blend seamlessly with the authenticity of the living room, dining room and family room. Sitting room with window seat and door to outside and a powder room complete the first floor. Second floor has three bedrooms each with its own bathroom and the well-proportioned master suite is filled with natural light. Third floor offers many possibilities to suit your needs. There are three rooms, two used as bedrooms, and a full bath. If indoors provides a gracious and comfortable respite from everyday stress, outdoor amenities and outbuildings add to the ambiance. Step outside through French doors to a seating & dining area under a wisteria covered pergola. Enjoy the in-ground pool, unique hand-crafted twig gazebo, a one-room hideaway and patio near remains of long-ago stone walls and marvel at the cool root cellar. Antique bank barn is in great condition and can shelter horses & small animals. Huge second level is a workshop & also has a heated room with skylight that is used as an art studio. There is a 4-car garage w/workshop and second floor storage plus another garage beside the barn. The remodeled second house is a one-level cottage with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, spacious deck & lovely gardens. Perfect for guests, family, a caretaker or as a legal rental. A potpourri of mature specimen trees, shrubs & perennials provide exquisite landscaping throughout the seasons and flowering trees line the driveway. Easy access to Philadelphia and New York, this 10-acre property is an oasis of beauty and grace that will always welcome you home.
