Description

The Philip Rogers House +G+Penn Wick+G- beckons its next fortunate steward. Built in 1737 by early settler Philip Rogers, an English Quaker who came to America with a Penn Grant of 200 acres, the 3-bedroom 2.5 bath home rests on 8 acres in Warwick Township in the Owen J. Roberts School District. Registered on the National Registry of Historic Homes, the Georgian Center Hall Colonial house has been expanded and upgraded overtime but 95% of the house remains as it was in the 18th and 19th centuries. This property is a stately manor home, considered a plantation when it lorded over the whole of the Penn grant acreage. There is a carriage house +GG now a garage and storage space at the entry with stone pillars leading up the walk. The home and accompanying outbuildings contain numerous historical and architectural features, including original millwork, wood flooring and hand-hewn ceiling beams, local fieldstone exterior, and extensive hardscapes throughout the property. The Philip Rogers House has been meticulously maintained and upgraded to add modern amenities like an updated kitchen, central air, 3 zone heating and cooling, an irrigation system, and a whole house generator, but with care and reverence for the home+GGs history. The center hall style creates a spacious feel with the front-to-back foyer and allows for an abundance of natural light throughout both the first and second floors. The main floor features a formal dining room with fireplace and eat-in kitchen with fireplace on one side. On the other side of the center hall, is a large living room with a fireplace and beamed ceiling. Just off the living room is a cozy fireside sitting room in the mother-in-law living quarters added in 1842 from the original kitchen of 1825. Upstairs, the well-lit hallway, features a reading nook, and opens into a primary bedroom with a nursery or dressing room and full bath across the hall, a second bedroom with stenciled wood floor, and a second full bath and a sitting room/ office area that steps down into a third bedroom. This area makes a lovely guest suite for company. The stairs from the center hall lead up to a full attic. In the lower level, once the summer kitchen, there is a warm family room and entertaining space with open beams, brick flooring, a sizable fireplace, a half bath, and a utility area with workspace, laundry, and storage. The lower-level walks out to the back patio and kitchen garden. The expansive back yard is private and picturesque with gardens, a bubbling creek cascading past the springhouse, and wooded views. Such a uniquely loved and preserved historic property like this doesn't come around very often. All the history of the house will travel with the new owner. Don't miss this opportunity to make this once in a lifetime home your own!
