    Own a piece of living history! This is an extraordinary example of a Colonial period homestead. The earliest section of the Garrett-Booth-Cheney house dates back to 1721, when the 13 colonies were still being established and before the Revolutionary War. In 1810, a two-story addition was added, shortly after the US Capital was moved from Philadelphia to Washington, DC. An ardent student of history, the current owner added another addition in 1985 in a style that maintains its historic character. A 1683 William Penn style Robert Southery Log Cabin was saved, relocated to and restored on the property. It has two rooms over two rooms, with corner fireplaces and windows and doors on each end, a style which began what is known as the Philadelphia row home. The early 19th Century English bank barn was rebuilt after portions collapsed in Hurricane Hazel and a new, yet architecturally compatible, 4 car garage was built in 1990. All of these structures are in relatively good condition considering their age. The main house has three cascading sections and the attention to detail is stunning. The center is the oldest part. It has a center hall and hearth fireplace, with sunroom off the back (which was the original front). The upstairs is small bedroom and bath. The north side has what would have been the living room and dining room, with central fireplaces. Upstairs are three bedrooms, which connect to the center bath. The recent addition now houses a large kitchen, hearth and beehive oven and an enclosed porch room. Upstairs is another bedroom and bath. Most of the house is surrounded by brick patios, which give a tremendous home feel. The property has 3.8 acres, including a vegetable garden and piles of building stone for future walls and additions. Originally part of a 24 acre tract, the property is in the process of being subdivided. A Façade Easement is being placed on portions of the house, barn and log house to protect their historic character, while allowing for the interiors to be modernized. Conveniently located near Booths Corner, Foulk Road and the Conchester Highway (RT 322), the house is a short commute from Philadelphia, Wilmington, West Chester and the airport. Served by the award winning Garnet Valley school district. APPOINTMENT REQUIRED
