Stone Craftsman House Belonged to Local Environmental Hero

Real Estate Agent with Patterson-Schwartz Real Estate

Fox PointA waterfront site on the Delaware River is now a State Park, thanks to the efforts of S. Marston Fox, who lived just up the road from the River and felt it needed to be more than just a toxic dump. Thanks to Fox and his neighbors, we can now enjoy Fox Point State Park.

Not only that, but theFox House Craftsman style stone historic home built by S. Marston's father, Charles, is now available for the first time in 22 years. Behind a stone wall and up a set of stone steps from Marsh Road, the home's orientation has been changed to what was once the back by adding a circular driveway and adding extensive gardens and trees. The old carriage house is now a 2 car garage with a studio above, reached by an outside stairway.

The homes has 5 bedrooms and a third floor space could be used as a master suite with Living Roomthe addition of a full bath in what is now an attic space. The finish of the red oak millwork adds a mellow touch, never having been painted. The windows on the first floor have deep sills with a window seat in the dining room, which is one of many rooms finished with Bradbury and Bradbury Wallpaper and Borders. A special feature is an artwork created as part of the mantel in the living room--a piece by local artist and fellow Penny Hill area resident, Robert Shaw.

Take some time to call or email me for a private appointment to see this lovely treasure, for there will be no open houses held. You can view more pictures of this historic home on my website.
