From a Public Record search, this abandoned colonial house was built in 1720. It use to be a farm house with over 100 acres of land.. It is about 3200 Sq Feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It was renovated in 1930 but not sure if an addition was put on. In 2005, the house sold for a low 116,000 dollars which to me makes me believe it was a foreclosure. The previous owner was a landscaper that specialized in nurseries which explains the small green house on the side. The current owner is a development company and the land was shorten to 3.3 acres. Right behind the house is a brand new luxury home development being built. It seems the current owner has not done much to the home as it in a terrible condition. Video to follow.

  1. I believe the old closed up fireplace in the basement was part of the original kitchen or a summer kitchen. In the 1700s they would have no air conditioning and would have tried to keep both the house and the kitchen itself cooler by being below grade level.

  2. Hi,, What a Great Hobby! If I were younger, i would certainly join you on your venture.
    I’ve still got a wish to find a big, old house in the country that i could pick up for a reasonable price and live out my remaining 10-20 years. I’m Still looking !

  3. Hey Steve, great website! I love exploring here in New England. I enjoyed your videos and photos. @George Georgeson, I’m 33 years old and have been exploring/photographing for about 5 years with my father who is 62… Moral of the story, if you have a passion for something such as people like us, it’s never too late to start! Goodluck to all!

  4. Hey Steve. I am quite familiar with a bit of the more recent history of the house. I was friends with one of the children that lived there back in the 1990s. It really was a nice home. The tree house was amazing and the pond was good for fishing. The property was a christmas tree farm during the time I knew the family. As I have been told, the house was used as a hospital during the revolution since the Brandywine battlefield is nearby. Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions about the property
