How about a truly unique project? Let your creative talent begin..... Build your forever home here! A 1.38 acre lot (approx.60,000 sq.ft.) with a rare, Delaware County PA barn built in the 1880s. Situated on an elevated lot along Philips Lane, a small and quiet cul de sac, off Boot Road in Newtown Square with expansive views including Crum Creek, and the beautiful 180 acre Okehocking Nature Preserve. There are six stalls and two sizable hay lofts in the barn, which is approximately 4,000 sq ft with a paddock to the rear which was used for holding livestock. A sizeable property itself, but with plenty of space to build an addition, at the side or in the rear. Barn is sold "As is". Open space beyond. This street consists of some existing, older homes and more recently, newly constructed homes, including a $1.4M property, which sold just last year. All homes are on similar sized lots. This lot has recently had a successful perc test for a septic system. Some history about the barn; The lot is part of what was the Velde Farm, owned by Helen Piersol Velde and her husband William Velde. Mrs Velde's father, Caleb Piersol, moved to the farm on the day he was married on March 31, 1893. The barn is of solid oak and dowel construction. Piersol was quoted in a 1957 "County Leader" article, at age 90, as saying, "Make sure to mention that I owned one of the best fox-hunting horses in the country."
