Hidden yet just minutes from a wide range of restaurants and shops as well as Malvern Preparatory School and other private schools, this Victorian farmhouse wears its history and architectural detail well. Its front porch is large enough to host a party, and it opens to a large reception foyer with a richly detailed staircase. Its expansive interior, with tall 2/2 sash windows, solid-wood doors, rich millwork and moldings, hardwood floors, high ceilings and large formal rooms, is classic and works as well today as it did 100 years ago. Its farmhouse kitchen can still rustle up a country breakfast. The cook can take the back stairs straight into this part of the house from the bedrooms on the second floor. The private quarters are on the second floor and include four large bedrooms with hardwood floors. There are three bathrooms. Like many homes of this era, this house sports a sleeping porch off the bedrooms where early residents would try to catch a cool nighttime breeze. On 1.2 acres, there's certainly room to garden, and a shed stands ready to store tools and serve as a potting area. There's also a detached, three-car garage plus an additional small outbuilding that just might make an ideal she-shed or man-cave. Elegant yet understated this breathtaking property is truly one of a kind and yet only few minutes away from Randolph Woods Park and Malvern Train Station, an hour away from all major cities such as Philadelphia, Princeton and Wilmington. It has to be seen to be fully appreciated. This is a rare find in today's market. Don't miss the opportunity to call this historical gem home.
