    Description

    Homes like this are rare, and if walls could talk, this magnificent home could tell many stories in its 283-year history. Situated at the end of a long drive flanked by two ponds, this distinguished property was home to four generations of the Vanderslice-Custer families for 150 years. Built in 1736 and recognized by the Historical Society of Trappe, this stone farmhouse manor is peacefully nestled among ten magnificent and serene acres scattered with old stone barn ruins, outbuildings, and an old root cellar. The home consists of two sections: the original 1736 portion and an addition, built prior to 1803 and renovated in 1914 by Burd Evans, the renowned contractor that built Bomberger Hall at nearby Ursinus College. Upon entering the elegant foyer, you'll find the stately architectural details you'd expect from a historic home-hardwood flooring, exposed beams, high ceilings, and deep windowsills. Each room is expansive and generous in size, and the living room boasts an impressively robust, brick-surround wood-burning fireplace. The formal dining room boasts a second wood-burning fireplace, and the eat-in kitchen was fully renovated with butcher block counters, tile flooring, and recessed lighting. The kitchen has turned stairs leading to the second floor tucked away in the corner plus a large pantry. A convenient renovated first-floor powder and laundry room complete the main level. Proceed up the grand staircase to the second floor, where four large bedrooms await you with a third wood-burning fireplace in the master suite. The full, second-floor bathroom was fully renovated, and walk-up stairs offer access to the floored attic. From the kitchen, an adjoining enclosed porch leads to the original 1700's portion of the home which will require extensive TLC. This section of the home offers a full second living space and would be well-suited as an in-law or au pair suite. The first floor boasts a living room with wood-burning fireplace plus a dining room, and the second floor features two large bedrooms, a full bath, and a full kitchen plus walk-up attic access. Additional upgrades since 2014 include a new drip-irrigation septic installed in 2015, updated plumbing and electric in the main home, and newer well components. Located in award-winning Spring-Ford school district and just minutes from 422, Ursinus College, state parks and game lands, this impressive home awaits a buyer who can appreciate the abundance of rich history in a most idyllic setting. Let your next chapter begin here.
