Within a 5.7 acre property in the historical Hamlet of Wickerton in London Grove Township, this rare fieldstone and clapboard home, dating back to 1834, has roots that originate with Christopher Pennock~s arrival in Southeastern Pennsylvania in the late 1600~s, and also with Joseph Pennock~s construction of his ~Primitive Hall~, just a few miles north, in 1738.The thick stone walls resound with an abundance of Southern Chester County Quaker history, yet the home has been lovingly updated with a mind toward maintaining the original charm.The living room opens to the library with a wall of built-ins. The dining room with wood stove is capable of serving a large party and opens to the delightfully breezy screen porch. The country kitchen with fireplace and vintage brick pavers, and the home~s baths have been recently updated.The original blacksmith~s shop makes an excellent space for woodworkers or as a gardener~s potting workplace.Open the door to the fanciful playhouse that is perfect for a little one~s tea party.Two stall horse barn, adjacent tack room with one car garage, fenced field, and running ring. No need to board your horses away from home.And then there is the 38~ X 26~ bank barn! Upstairs is a two-story open space with exposed fieldstone wall, more than large enough to park a tractor, but also a potential venue for special events. Slip down through the trap door to a large heated and cooled basement, with exposed fieldstone wall, that opens to a charming stone patio; this space is ideal for a large home office, exercise equipment, teenager gatherings, etc. The bank barn also includes two garage spaces with additional storage.This is truly a home to experience.
