Situated atop a bluff, overlooking the Schuykill River valley, lies this 1930’s English Tudor manor house designed by the iconic architect, Walter K. Durham. The natural beauty of this property’s conserved 20+ acres is emphasized by the preservation of mature trees and natural rock outcroppings. Once quarried on the property, the indigenous stone was used for the construction of the original home and for the newly built landscape. A new timber framed arbor covering the rear stone terrace takes in the expansive views across the open field and through the canopy trees descending to the river valley below. This well-appointed outdoor room is sized for entertaining and detailed to complement the timeless quality of this historic property. This expansive home and property continues to unfold, leading you through a lushly planted stepped garden framed with an alle’e of flowering trees, terminating at the new pool and Victorian inspired conservatory/pool house.
