    Description

    It will be a privilege to own and honor this class 1 historic home built in 1787 on a large secluded yard set far off the road. Leedom House has solid unusually thick stone walls that create an interior of peace and quiet. Entering the front hall the well preserved, stunning original woodwork including curved bannister running up to 3rd floor, deep window sills, fireplace and random width flooring jumps out. The large, charming, living room with fireplace is filled with light on 3 sides. Across the front hall is the kitchen with an enormous tiled counter facing the Viking range and a nice, well lit eat-in space. The kitchen door leads out to convenient parking. The kitchen opens into a large playroom/office/exercise room with separate powder room on backside of house. Second floor has a very large bedroom on one side with excellent storage space and fireplace and there is a smaller bedroom with enclosed full bath on other side of hallway. In hall is another full bathroom.The third floor has a very large double height vaulted ceiling bedroom on one side, and a smaller bedroom/office/library on other, again with enclosed full bath and as per floor below another full bath in hall. The creative possibilities for using this combination of spaces are endless.On the bottom floor of this 4 story home there is an apartment which has 2 doors to the driveway outside at grade (note- you also can enter upstairs to both kitchen and front hall at ground as well because Leedom house is on a slight grade). The apartment is accessed on interior downstairs off kitchen and has its own kitchen, living room, bedroom, good storage spaces, washer/dryer and full bath. Note the well preserved original cook-in colonial wall oven- a delightful artifact harkening to when this home was one of just a few for miles around! The yard is nicely landscaped, has a large expanse of grass and has a wooded section including some cool old stone walls remnant of colonial out building. The long drive off Marywatersford road curves around the home where there is plenty of parking not visible from street and very convenient to the kitchen entrance. Leedom House is a unique home in an amazing location with quick easy access to both the city and mainline
