George Washington probably did not sleep here, but he could have; and he maybe did ride by back during the time when Philadelphia was the nation's capital and he lived here. Built in 1785, this original farmhouse (Christened Middle Bank) is updated with lots of the modern conveniences yet retains the colonialist feel of the original architecture. On a large, sloping, wooded lot with lots of privacy produced by mature trees. Wide planked original wood floors, plantation shutters, antique hardware, original (we think) brick floors and exposed beams are some of the distinctive features. Come in to a large Living Room/Great Room (21 x 15) with original wooden floors, lots of natural light, colonial shutters, recessed lights, ceiling fan, built in book shelves and replacement windows. Eat in Kitchen has the original (we think) brick floor, hard wood counters, colonial looking metal back-splash, stainless steel sink and appliances (Dishwasher, Refrigerator, Stove, Micro Wave), track lights, breakfast bar and spacious pantry. Dining area is open to the Kitchen and Breakfast Bar (Granite Top) for great flow and an ideal layout for entertaining. Dining Room also has a flagstone tile floor, sky lights, built in bench, lots of windows, egress to the outside and access door to the enclosed porch, recessed lights, track lights and wainscoting. Enclosed screened in porch has what looks like an original brick floor and connects to the back yard deck made of Brazilian hardwood. First floor powder room has another original looking tile floor, updated with new fixtures, over and under washer and dryer and a generous storage area. Den/Study completes the first floor again with original wide plank floor, exposed original beams, built in storage and wainscoting. Direct access door to the powder room means this room could also be used as a fourth bedroom if desired. Ample sized Master Bed Room with carpet, ceiling fan, track lights, large walk through closet, jalousie windows and wainscoting. Bedroom 2 has original wide plank floor with exposed beams and double French doors. Bedroom 3 also has original wide plank floor, track lights and built in storage. Outside is complemented with a large (22 x 16) ground level Brazilian hardwood deck, a great spot to hang out with friends and family on a summer evening. Two car detached garage. Very large, beautifully terraced and landscaped back yard, with play house and play set.
