Historic Country Home in West Chester, PA – Weekend Escape? Bed and Breakfast?

 

137 N. Wawaset Road

 

This is a bit unusual.

 

I’m writing about a listing that isn’t even mine.

 

It’s also not anywhere near me, in fact it’s 2000+ miles away, on the East Coast.

 

But I know this property pretty well, and I thought I would do what I could, through the power and reach of ActiveRain, to help my Mom sell her house.

What a fabulous home, Jeff.  I am sure your mom is sorry to part with it.  And can you believe the price!  I am sure it will sell quickly, especially with the power of Active Rain behind it.

Well, the history is pretty interesting, and there are architectural features we just don't see here. And of course I don't think there are homes anywhere near this age. Can you imagine what this would command price ways jsut given the land in our neck of the woods?

This place is huge and there are so many options.

Jeff, I hope you are getting a Referral Fee:) All kidding aside I hope your mother sells it fast. BB's are great money makers if you know what you are doing. I know one in Calastoga CA and you would need another zero behind your mothers if they sold it:)
