Farmhouses became all the rage with Johanna Gaines' signature style but a good farmhouse isn't just trendy, its timeless. A good farmhouse in a convenient location is nearly impossible to find in the greater Philadelphia area unless its surrounded by new townhomes or listed higher than the average buyer could afford, but low and behold, our house of the week - 1085 Fort Washington Ave in Fort Washington, PA.
This 5 bedroom, 1.5 bath house has 2800+ sq ft and sits on a whole acre in desirable Upper Dublin School District.
Further, it still has the original barn which can work as a workspace or perhaps converted to more living space!
This house has been tastefully updated and modern amenities added throughout such as rebuilt chimneys, new roof, new hot water heater, new central air system and new well components (see listing for full details).
The house is also right across the street from the local elementary school and sports fields.
The grounds are also a wonderful mix of mature trees and open green lawns, reminiscent of its original heyday.
The property is listed at $679,900 with Carmel Archdeckin and Karrie Gavin of Elfant-Wissahickon Realtors.
