Property Description

“Woodlee” is a classic circa 1820's stone Pennsylvania farmhouse set on 5.25 lush acres with magnificent old growth trees, flowering plants, bushes, open meadows & an acre of woods with a portion of beautiful Rocky Run creek! This “old school” nature lover’s paradise was once a part of Wawa farms & its storied past is experienced in the present throughout with its thick stone walls, period double hung windows & shutters, original hardwood floors & architectural details! While it is approached close to Darlington Road behind trees, its living arrangement is set in the landscape towards the rear of the property, taking in the breathtaking lush & quiet acreage. The rear covered porch extends nearly the full length of the house, which overlooks the fenced yard, ideal for secure needs of pets & children. Nature is present from every window of this graceful lady. The house is presently structured with a 3-Story main house portion with 3 BRs, 2 ½ Baths with a sizable two-story apartment that is “grandfathered” in with the township with 2 BRs, 1 ½ Bath. Ideal for extended family, in-law quarters or as a rental; it is possible to configure as a Single-Family home with proper vision. At present there is a door on the second floor which can be reopened to unite both units. The main house has gracious proportions with updated kitchen with “breakfast nook” with exposed stone walls, main level laundry & half bath. Off the kitchen there is a space ideal for a dining room with bay window overlooking the stunning backyard. This space opens to the living room featuring original colonial fireplace mantle with built-ins, front door & access to basement. The staircase to the second floor offers a master bedroom with fireplace & dressing/sitting area along with main bathroom. The third floor has a loft/office space, two bedrooms, one with dressing/bonus space along with another full bath. The apartment has a separate entrance with kitchen offering a beautiful view of rear yard, a half bath, pantry, dining room & showcase rustic living (great) room with stove & stone wall on the main level. Upper-level features two bedrooms & full bath. The house has been in the same family since 1945 & its recent owners, since 1985, have installed new heating, air conditioning & septic systems, connected to public water & completed numerous inspections with repairs. Now is your chance to become the new “curator” of "Woodlee" so that this treasure will remain in the community for generations to come! Potential for 2 lot subdivision sketch plan from 2007 available. Located within Rose Tree Media Schools District, the Natural Lands Trust Wawa Preserve’s Rocky Run Trail is nearby & it is convenient to Wawa Headquarters, downtown Media, cultural sites of the Brandywine Valley, Riddle Hospital, Rt 476, Ridley Creek State Park, Tyler Arboretum, Philadelphia Airport, shopping & the soon updated Septa Franklin Station!
