Welcome to the best of both worlds. Imagine a spacious ~like new~ 11 year old dream home built over and around an 18th century log house. The front of the home features a naturally weathered wood exterior accentuating an exposed portion of the 18th century log house. The log house portion of the home was built for relatives of the renowned George Boone family. (An old canon ball was discovered during the 2 year long renovation and construction project.) There are random width hardwood floors throughout the home. The authentic handcrafted reproduction cabinetry in the kitchen looks beautiful next to the modern stainless steel appliances. The Kitchen has vaulted ceiling with skylights and enjoys a wonderful view of the large pond. The expansive great room with fireplace has more than enough space to set up living room, dining room and office areas. The master bedroom has high ceilings and all the modern amenities. The first story of the original log home section could be used as a cozy guest bedroom with an adjacent full bath and laundry. There is Central Air, an oversized attached 2 car garage and a 17x8 covered porch. The residence has 3 lovely acres. You can enjoy relaxing while fishing in the pond or tinkering in the barn which was renovated in 2007. The long lane down to the home makes it feel like you are way out in the country, yet you are only a few minutes to Target, Panera, and the 422 corridor to King of Prussia.
