Introducing "Dawesfield," an exceptional 22-acre property in an extraordinary Whitpain Township location, dating back to 1736, surrounded by Wissahickon Watershed permanently preserved open space, featuring two 3-Story Stone Colonials, 3 Barns, one dating to 1796, multiple detached Garages, Sheds, Greenhouse, Spring House and Guest House, and including a 3-hole Golf Course and Swimming Pool. Horse lovers will be thrilled with the connection to the surrounding trails. Car lovers will be enthralled with the capacity for car collections in the multiple barns. Horticulturists will be delighted with the age and multitude of specimen trees, shrubs and continually blooming perennials in the magnificent gardens with surrounding stone walls. Historians will be fascinated by the stories detailing the use of one of 2 stone colonials as George Washington's headquarters in 1777 during the Revolutionary War, including the encampment of over 10,000 troops on the grounds and adjacent properties. One house is 5829 sq ft with 7 bedrooms, and the other is 5129, with 5 bedrooms. The 1 Bedroom Guest House is an ideal location for a Home Office. 1000s of daffodils blanket the gardens; specimen magnolias provide brilliant blooms; ancient trees grace the expansive grounds. The panoramic views are magnificent, and the possibilities are endless at this enchanting location. Many historical items are included with the purchase, including the bed that George Washington slept in while the property was his headquarters, along with various framed historical documents as follows: Richard Whitpaine (for whom Whitpain township is named) was the recipient of a Penn land grant for the property, and his will, signed by William Penn is included, as well as the indenture of Whitpaine's widow who sold the property to Abraham Daws, who then built the house. Also included will be many pieces of equipment including a golf cart, tractor and mowers. Sale includes 4 separate parcels. Separate parcels may be available for purchase. Call for more details.
