Interesting historic home currently for sale in Tredyffrin Township

Today, there are fifty five homes on the market available for purchase in the award winning Tredyffrin Easttown School district, rated as having the 3rd best high school, Conestoga in the state, that are priced over $1,000,000. These are all luxury homes, with the majority of the highest priced homes being in Easttown.

Easttown has always been considered the more expensive of the two townships, but there are locations in Tredyffrin that command multi-million dollar prices, such as lots on Valley Forge Mountain and close to Valley Forge National Park.

This home in Tredyffrin is of more interest, and I think one of the more interesting homes currently for sale. There are not many properties remaining for sale today with the history and the land that this home has available for it's next buyer at a price, $1,599,000, that really is a bargain in today's market. If you are looking for a home that is a little different, has today's modern amenities, but with historical perspectives that will allow you to place antiques and classic furniture in the home then this property is for you. Admittedly the location is a challenge, historic homes nearly always are located in places that used to be convenient for travel; development around them can change what once was a bucolic setting. The location of this home on Duportail Road close to the southbound entrance to Route 202 can be viewed as convenient or seen as a nuisance, but with the price taking this in to consideration it provides a wonderful opportunity for a savvy buyer. Anywhere else in either township and this home would be priced at a significantly higher level. So check out these details and photos and let me know what you think.
