RE/MAX Classic Lists Historic Home with Views of Valley Forge
WAYNE, Pa. – Jan. 1, 2020 – PRLog — There’s an old adage that says, “home is not a place, it’s a feeling,” and thanks to a new listing by RE/MAX Classic and Brett Furman Group, you now have the opportunity to get a feel for a historic home that’s available for purchase.
“The great thing about this listing is that it features a 3D tour, which affords the consumer the ability to take the viewing experience deeper in virtual reality,” said Brett Furman, owner of RE/MAX Classic and Brett Furman Group.
Sara Spector, a historical consultant with Furman’s RE/MAX Classic Historic Housing division, researched the property and revealed that according to historical records, the home was built in 1775. In fact, when William Penn started selling lands in Pennsylvania, he reserved about a third of it for his own personal use and that of his family.
One of such parcels, or manors, was located between the banks of the Schuylkill River and those of Valley Creek. This land, known as the Manor of Bilton was granted by Penn to William and Margaret Lowther, who was either his niece or his sister, and today contains the newly listed property located at 19 Oakwood Lane, Phoenixville, PA 19460.
The availability of this historic home could prove to have perfect timing. In fact, according to MoneyWise.com (https://moneywise.com/
Furman, an award-winning Real Estate Broker, who is known as one of Pennsylvania’s top agents since 1986, noted that the 1,472 square-foot single-family farmhouse is situated on 1.1 acres of land with views overlooking Valley Forge National Park.
In addition, the home comes equipped with a welcoming covered front porch, charming living/ dining room with a fireplace, an eat-in kitchen, family room, first floor Master Suite, plus a private second-floor bedroom and dressing room.
