A Victorian farmhouse with six bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms is available for sale in Lansdowne.
The historic home, originally known as Mansion Violet, was built by Abraham Pennock in 1875 and is listed on the National Historical Home registry.
With more than an acre of gardens, surrounding specimen trees, and the adjoining large nature preserve on Darby Creek, the home provides much privacy and serenity.
The home was first renovated in 1890 by Minerva Parker, one of the nation’s first female architects. Over the years, it has been updated with all modern conveniences while preserving its original features.
Among the home’s highlights are a living room with a large wood-burning stove and a recently renovated kitchen with modern appliances and large island with seating.
An added bonus is the two-bedroom apartment with private access.
