Welcome to Rocky Hill Castle! This property is in the heart of Historic Chadds Ford Township and is steeped in it's own fascinating history! Not on the historical registry, so no worries about renovations! Current owners have owned the property since 1957. At that time the purchase included over 12 acres but has since been subdivided and now remains at just under 5 acres. This home was built by a Philadelphia business owner and was rumored to include about 600 acres. It was a "summer home" at that time, equipped with servant's quarters on the 3rd floor. In approximately 1912, major changes took place and the original Victorian style home with wrap around deck was converted to a stone "castle"! So much fascinating history to explore in this 12 bedroom, 3.5 bath mansion, where some of the original "horse and carriage lane" still exists and runs along the front of the property from Camly Lane up to the promenade at the entrance of the home! The 3 story BARN with 5 STALLS is just waiting to be renovated and since the original owner was a local equestrian, rumored to hold fox hunting events, it's likely that the nameplates on the stall doors were installed by him. The home and Barn will need extensive renovations and are all being sold in "AS IS" condition.
