Bucolic home overlooking the Chester River on a spacious, wooded property. Originally the hunting retreat of a prominent Philadelphia physician, the home has foregone a recent renovation to add modern amenities while preserving the existing warmth and rustic charm. Great fishing, crabbing, and exploring awaits with complimentary use of four kayaks and canoe. Experience everything that waterfront living has to offer- right out the back door!
For those reluctant to paddle off down river, rest assured- this is one relaxing place. Snuggle into a hammock under the shade of tall trees for a rejuvenating afternoon nap. Mosey down to the dock and stretch out on a chaise for a dose of vitamin D. Sip your morning coffee or an evening drink on the back porch and get lost in your thoughts for a while.
The home features 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, eat-in kitchen, dining area, laundry room, large living room (downstairs), small living room (upstairs) and a large screened-in porch which leads down to a very large dock.
