Brett Furman Group Announces the Listing For Sale of a Historic Masterpiece
WAYNE, Pa. – May 2, 2023 – PRLog — This remarkable piece of American history was likely constructed by the same builder responsible for General Washington’s Headquarters (a mere 6-minute walk away) over 200 years ago.
Mr. Furman has been privileged to represent some of the most iconic homes in the region. These include a rare Rittenhouse square mega-mansion on Locust Street, designed by Theophilus P. Chandler, founder of the UPenn Architectural School and attributed to Horace Trumbauer; 205 Maple Hill Road in Gladwyne reportedly famed architect Walter K. Durham’s favorite personal creation; and 2854 Egypt Road with ties to William Penn’s estate.
However, 1900 Valley Forge Road holds a special place in the heart of the team’s history enthusiast, as it was once owned by Colonel William Dewees and served as a hospital for sick and wounded soldiers during the American Revolutionary War. Prior to that, it was an established iron forge along Valley Creek where passersby could buy ingots traveling through the Appalachian Mountains.
Showcasing exceptional architectural design and craftsmanship throughout 3,200+ sq. ft. of living space with 5 spacious bedrooms, 4 fireplaces, 2 full and 2 half bathrooms, and a daylight walkout basement. The home’s historical charm is evident in its intricate built-in bookcases, molding details, deep-set windows, chestnut floors, and pie staircases. Mr. Furman shares “One of the most unique features of the home is its old-fashioned mechanical doorbell system, operated by the simple pull of a knob.” He joked, “There’s no ring doorbell here!” Modern amenities, such as a high-velocity central air system and a high-efficiency heater, have been added to create a perfect balance between historical allure and contemporary convenience.
