    Description

    "Glendower" Arched fieldstone entry walls flank your "Welcome Home" leading to a sweeping driveway as you are immediately taken aback by the grandeur of this historic homestead. Perched on 3.7 acres & complemented by stately trees & lush gardens, this elegant home is nestled in a secluded settling that can't be duplicated. The history & folklore includes George Washington stopping by en route to Valley Forge, Forefathers of the Declaration of Independence escaped to Glendower for county retreats, a stop on the underground railroad, Abe Lincoln's Grandmother resided for a time, hand written sheep skin deeds used to convey its ownership through the years. Formal living areas offer original wide plank random width hardwood floors, high ceilings, tall windows w/ deep window sills, detailed moldings & built-in hutches & cabinetry. Cozy-up to any of the 7 wood burning fireplaces. Escape to the Library or kick-up & watch the game in the Family Room, be entertained in the Music Room, greet guests in the formal entry hall & host grand events in the inter connecting Living, Dining & Music Rooms. The household can catch up on their daily activities while dining informally in the original summer Kitchen warmed by a walk-in fireplace that was used for the daily cooking in its day. Master Suite offers a retreat from the hustle & bustle of the household, a Princess Suite & 3-4 additional Bedrooms & 3 Baths, super convenience of a 2nd floor Laundry & back staircase. 2+ car Garage w/ the luxury of auto openers makes coming home a seamless effort. Garage connects directly to the homestead through a window paned enclosed breezeway, so you never have to bear the outdoors & inclement weather. This informal entry offers multiple closets & shelfed storage. Outside living offers multiple settings to relax, entertain guests, have a picnic & fire up the built-in BBQ. Terraces, patios, decks, canopy areas & in ground pool, it's your choice! The Barn has been restored & converted into a multi-purpose building- Pool House w/ Baths & changing rooms; an event center or party hall- complete w/ a full kitchen & wet bar, soaring ceilings, fireplace & wall of glass looking out to the pool decks & terraces; 2 Bedrooms- Au Pair, Caretaker or In-Law Quarters; Garage, Workshop & abundance of storage. Additional 2-car detached Garage to tuck away your personal treasures. If this is a property that piques any interest, it is a must see to appreciate all that it offers!
