Description

(ZOOM showings available!!!) Groth Hill Farm is the perfect blend of romance and history. W/ over 26 pastoral acres, this historic homestead dates back to 1698 and is part of William Penn's land tract. This lovely equestrian property is equally suited as a gentlemen's farm and it has been lovingly restored and updated with all modern conveniences for today's lifestyle. The property is a registered riding academy and any horse enthusiast or equestrian will appreciate the 17 stalls, full size lit outdoor riding arena, 11 fenced in paddocks, plus additional pastures and opportunity to blaze woodland trails. This property will take you breath away as you wander amongst the stone ruins, two-story stone spring house hide-a-way and the spectacular 19th century English bank barn with stunning new doors and re-pointed stone walls. The Chef-designed kitchen is an ideal gathering spot for entertaining, testing recipes, cozying up with a book, or to watch TV, and certainly the ultimate experience for the cooking enthusiast. There are soapstone and granite counter tops, bar seating, radiant heated tile floors, solid cherry cabinets, Sub Zero refrigerator, a 60" duel fuel Wolf Range with double oven, 6 burners, PLUS a grill and a griddle, stainless steel Vent~a~Hood, pot filler and 2 kitchen sinks with Grohe and Cucina faucets: one is a French porcelain farmhouse apron sink and the other at the opposite end of the kitchen is a double stainless steel Blanco sink. The kitchen has a bar counter top and opens onto a spacious eat-in family area and has spectacular views of the horse pastures and antique stone barn walls. Off the kitchen is a potting and gardening atrium with views to the herb and perennial garden and access to the gravel terrace. A formal dining room with access to an outside brick covered porch is perfect for wonderful meals and entertaining in the warmer months. In winter, it's the perfect place to host friends and family since it adjoins with the formal living room that includes a wood burning stove, Mercer tile inlaid hearth and built in bookcases that have ample housing for plenty of fireside reads. The home has original pine wood flooring on all three floors, much of the original hardware, plaster and stone walls, & deep window sills that are clearly of an era long gone by. Fun fact ? there are 27 windows in this farmhouse so the house shines brilliantly with plenty of natural light, both days and on moon-lit nights! This home awaits you!!!
