Nestled in picturesque rural lands surrounding Easton sits this antique, stone and slate home with 2-stories, 4 bedrooms and 2.1 baths on an acre of ground. Historic hallmarks of the home include original molding, exposed wood beams, deep set windows, wrought iron hardware and 5 fireplaces. A wide front porch spans the front entrance while secluded patios stretch from the rear of the house. In the entrance foyer the center stair is flanked by a wide planked wooden floor and exposed stone walls. Unlike typical historic homes the floor plans here offer flexibility. The existing first floor offers an eat-in kitchen, den, living room and in-law suite with a second kitchen. With a flexible elimination of the in-law suite space could be available for a master suite or a large dining room and a great room on the first floor. The attic, with a finished room, offers space for a playroom or additional storage. The partial basement, with root cellar below, would make a spacious wine cellar. Lovely stone, brick and wooden outbuildings provide character as well as functional space for storage, a planting shed and a garage with unfinished second floor. The grounds, with colorful landscaping, provide a background for an event as special as a wedding. This property has an interesting beginning as a farm house in the late 1700's, later transforming into a popular hotel on the well-traveled Stage Coach route between Philadelphia and Easton, before resuming its identity as the existing residence of today. Close proximity to Easton shopping, entertainment, river recreation and main road arteries of I-78 and Route 611.

  1. That dining and I think kitchen area with the fireplace and exposed stone walls is really wonderful. Would love to sit by the fire and enjoy some hot coffee or cider on a chilly winter day.

  2. Why the string of mailboxes? Are they for convenience to mail carrier and belong to nearby houses? It is a single residence, right?

    • It is a bit confusing to look at the street-view with all the open space yet so many mailboxes nearby. My guess is that the house is single-family and the other boxes belong to neighbors. I’ve seen a few situations where the houses are pretty well separate, yet the mailboxes are clustered in one place.

  3. Nobody has as beautiful old Stone Houses in this country as Pennsylvania does. Does anyone know the history of why here and not in other states?

    • I hope someone will correct me if I am wrong, but for the brief time I lived in northeast, I often heard that stone was a common and abundant Colonial-era building material in New England, Pennsylvania, Delaware etc. due to the region’s glacial/geological history. Stone cleared from fields was often used for fences and homes.

  4. I too love the exposed stone all over the house, is that a guest room over the garage? Love this house!

  5. I live not far from this home and yes, the numerous mailboxes are frequently seen in the rural areas. There are some long driveways to get to some of the houses and bunching the boxes together is a time saver for postal workers
