    Oh for the want of interior photos!
    What a wonderful setup and with that amount of land.

  2. what a wonderful property….but a shame the taxes will be raised so high that they will take the land for more development. thats what happens to wonderful old farms. they eat it up until there is nothing left but the old homeplace, and then they want to condemn that. the only way to save it is to have enough money you can take it apart and move it to a far far away piece of land….yes, they already took the lower field and made it into a ‘very desirable’ ‘highly sought-after’ PRESERVE (thats a joke) at ‘hideaway farm’…or what used to be hideaway farm….nothing but a future extension of the development below….so sad.

      NoHarm, I think legally they are permitted to call it a ”preserve” because the specimens that once grew there have been cut, processed, and bonded with formaldehyde glue as the chipboard that gives shape to the new crop of McMiniMansions, and therefore a bit of the old farmstead has indeed been preserved. When you see the drone’s-eye view of the sparkling new subdivision, it looks like a camptown meeting behind the old house. ¡Ay qué romántico!

  3. I use to live in Downingtown. It’s a wonderful place.
