    An incredible opportunity and an amazing and rare find of a historic house and period barn in the center of the Gladwyne Village, this historic property is categorized as a Montgomery County Farm Homestead, that includes: a COLONIAL HOME (approx. 4569 sq. ft.) built in 1826 with five Bedrooms and four and one half Baths, random width wood floors, deep window sills,  and lovely millwork throughout.  The house opens to lovely terraces and covered porches for outside relaxing and entertaining.  There is a sunken stone walled garden with fish pond and fountain that was designed by renowned Philadelphia landscape architect, Thomas W. Sears. A period BARN  that includes two horse stalls, lots of storage, work space, and a two bedrm guest apartment (approx. 926 sq. ft.).  COTTAGE (approx. 1422 sq.ft

    + basement) includes:  two bedrooms, full bath, entry/ dining room, kitchen, and partially finished basement.   Cottage and its' property of .5 acre (approx.) lot have been approved for subdivision (with proviso that cottage is connected to sewer on street) from main house and barn with their 1.33 acre lot.  Subdivision will be at the discretion of new owners.  Cottage is valued at $399,000(+ -)
