    Description

    Come home to your own Country Resort and a piece of Delaware County & Wawa history! This magnificent 3 story Georgian fieldstone historic home dates back to 1790 and is known as +G+Little Forge Hill+G-. It has been loved and hugged by it+GGs owners over the years. The 3rd floor was added in 1812 and is documented by the date stamped on the outside of the addition and by the Historical Society. Baltimore Pike used to run off the dining room side of the residence and then was relocated to its current location and as a result of that the owner insisted that PENDOT construct the fabulous River Rock stone walls that welcomes you on to the property as well as other walls in the landscaping, which was harvested from the nearby Chester Creek. George Wood/Wawa bought the property in 1900 along with several other large parcels of adjoining this property. Thus Mr. Wood began dairy farming Rocky Run Dairy Farm and began home delivery of milk. At some point it became known as +G+Home Farm+G-. As growth and expansion took place, they opened the first Wawa store in 1939, which gave birth to Wawa, Inc as we now know it today. The current owners have gone to great lengths to preserve, remodel and tastefully renovate to bring it to the exquisite estate it is today. The home is now 3400 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4 +-+ baths with an in-ground salt water pool with new pump, new heater, new deck, new fence and (new- not new) covered cabana with new ceiling fan and shed near by surrounded by magnificent tiered landscaping using more of the original River Rock from the banks of Chester Creek. Some of the outstanding feature are; original front door with original hardware, hardwoods floors, deep window sills, (1 not 3 in dining room) very large gas fire places with built-in cabinets in dining room, new eat-in kitchen with granite counter tops, stone back splash, engineered bamboo floor, pendant lights, 5 burner gas stove, dishwasher and range hood, 1st floor office/bedroom with beaded board accent and full almost new bath, 1st floor family room with bar area and bar sink with new granite countertop, 1st floor bright and cheery TV/play room with (not new to TV/play) French doors closing it off from the adult family room area, 1st floor powder room and laundry, (new French Doors out to pool), 2nd floor hall/kids ceramic bath, 2nd bedroom with ceiling fan and fire place with side built-in cabinets, primary bedroom with brand new state of art bath, new custom walk in closet, bamboo flooring and ceiling fan, walk-in attic area that could be finished, walk up to 3rd floor with additional room with walk-in closet and full bath(no shower just bath tub), basement with utility room and bilco doors out to terrace and old well, 2 car garage with barn doors, whole house has been freshly painted in and out,with 2 50 gallon propane leased tanks to heat the pool.
