Malvern Bank House of the Week: Historic Colonial in Newtown Square

By
An historic Colonial home in Newtown Square.

A beautiful historic colonial home with five bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms is available for sale in Newtown Square, writes Sandy Smith for the Philadelphia Magazine.

The house was originally built in 1710 by James Price, who was given a grant of land by William Penn. However, the full home as it stands today was constructed a century later, when a subsequent owner built the larger central-hall house addition.

Inside the historic colonial main house, highlights include a living room with fireplace, an elegant formal dining room, as well as the side wing with its bonus room and the kitchen and breakfast room.

Meanwhile, the original James Price house now serves as a family room with an original hearth fireplace and a beehive oven.

The nicely-sized primary bedroom on the second floor boasts a decorative fireplace and access to the upper floors of the original house and the side wing.

This level includes two more bedrooms, while the fourth and the fifth bedrooms are on the third floor.

The 2.29-acre property is also home to a two-story bank barn.
