About This Old House

“Glendower”

Arched fieldstone entry walls flank your “Welcome Home” leading to a sweeping driveway as you are immediately taken aback by the grandeur of this historic homestead. Perched on 5.7 acres and complemented by stately trees and lush gardens, this elegant home is nestled in a secluded settling that can’t be duplicated.

The history and folklore includes George Washington stopping by en route to Valley Forge, Forefathers of the Declaration of Independence escaped to Glendower for county retreats, a stop on the underground railroad, Abe Lincoln’s Grandmother resided for a time, hand written sheep skin deeds used to convey its ownership through the years.

Formal living areas offer original wide plank random width hardwood floors, high ceilings, tall windows with deep window sills, detailed moldings and built-in hutches and cabinetry. Cozy-up to any of the 7 wood burning fireplaces. Escape to the library or kick-up and watch the game in the family Room, be entertained in the music room, greet guests in the formal entry hall and host grand events in the inter connecting living, dining and music Rooms. The household can catch up on their daily activities while dining informally in the original summer kitchen warmed by a walk-in fireplace that was used for the daily cooking in its day.
Master suite offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the household, a princess Suite and 3-4 additional bedrooms and 3 baths, super convenience of a 2nd floor Laundry and back staircase.

2+ car garage with the luxury of auto openers makes coming home a seamless effort. Garage connects directly to the homestead through a window paned enclosed breezeway. So you never have to bear the outdoors and inclement weather. This informal entry offers multiple closets and shelved storage.
Outside living offers multiple settings to relax, entertain guests, have a picnic and fire up the built-in barbeque. Terraces, patios, decks, canopy areas, and in ground pool, it’s your choice!

The Barn has been restored and converted into a multi-purpose building- pool house with baths and changing rooms; an event center or party hall- complete with a full kitchen and wet bar, soaring ceilings, fireplace and wall of glass looking out to the pool decks and terraces; 2 Bedrooms- Au Pair, Caretaker or In-Law Quarters; Garage, Workshop and abundance of storage. Additional 2-car detached Garage to tuck away your personal treasures.

Two all-weather Tennis Courts are reached by paved walks and are surrounded by a fence and garnished by extensive landscaping for privacy.

If this is a property that piques any interest, it is a must see to appreciate all that it offers.
