About Heather Dougherty-Harris

Our family has lived in this home for over 10 years. It is truly a family home. We love this home so much we have decided to keep it and share it with others as we spend most of the school year in Florida. My husband was born and raised in Pennsylvania and I was born and raised in Florida. It is such a blessing to be able to spend time with both families as we raise our four children. Our time in Philadelphia is so special, we look forward to living in Florida and visiting the northeast as often as we can. In the meantime we look forward to sharing this amazing one of a kind, family home with you and your guests in the Philadelphia area.

Heather Dougherty-Harris purchased this Estate in 2004

Why Heather Dougherty-Harris chose Lower Pottsgrove

We purchased this property because of the unique beauty that it possessed. The location was a huge selling point for us. We are so close to Philadelphia, Washington D.C., New York City and Baltimore. The home is also one mile from a major road, so it makes it very easy to travel anywhere quickly. Philadelphia Premium outlets are a mile away as well as the nations largest mall is only 20 min away. Moving to Pennsylvania in 1999 after graduating from Chiropractic school, my husband and I both wanted to live in the community where our practice was located. This house was the perfect fit for our family and the extensive entertaining we do.

What makes this Estate unique

We purchased this property because of the unique beauty that it possessed. The high end finish internally and the beauty of the outside. We are so close to Philadelphia but also loved being on a large private property, which gave us additional peace and serenity. The view from the living room is beautiful in any season: winter snow, fall foliage, spring blossoms and summer's green. Sitting in the main living area allowed us to enjoy the beauty of the northeast.

Everything was great and Heather was very quick to respond to any questions we had, my family loved being able to stay with us and it was fantastic to have the wedding and reception all in the same location :) thank you Heather!!

Game room on the lower level was a big hit with our guests. Heather was great to work with.

                                                                  Excellent!

                                                                  Karen P.

                                                                  Heather was easy to communicate with. The property and the land is very spacious. Wish we had more time there to enjoy the outdoor on the property. The kitchen and dining space allowed my group to eat and hang out, while some people may decide to venture to the basement for pool games or watch movies. The cleaning staff arrived right when we were leaving, and they were friendly. The kitchen is well-equipped too but we didn't get to spend much time cooking. There are 2 grills outdoor. You will see kids-related toys and beds upstairs as this is a place that seems to be lived by a family. Also want to be mindful when deciding who will sleep in the basement where the 2 queen beds and 1 king bed are since they are right next to the pool table (for the noise). Consider calling Heather a little before arriving about setting the A/C temperature, since we realized the temp. was set to high until we call to confirm check in, then she could adjust remotely. The inside of the house was clean. The outdoor spaces can use a little tender and care in terms of landscaping or cleaning but nothing unusual for a space that's not constantly being used. Also note that since Heather may not be visiting the house immediately after the check out, you may not have the deposit back right away. It's been almost a week since my check out but she mentioned that I should get it next week.

                                                                  We went for a weekend stay with family and friends. The house is beautiful, it was setup perfectly and clean. Much better than the pictures. We regret not booking it for a longer stay than just the weekend. The grown-ups as well as the adults completely enjoyed the stay. Would come back next time for a longer stay.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

You had such a long way to travel just to spend time some quality together, I am so happy that you were all comfortable and able to relax! Please come back again & stay a little longer! We look forward to hosting you again!
