Own a piece of Abington's rich history! Built in 1866, the house was originally built to be the home of the manager and assistant manager of the iron forge mill of Smith Harper, one of Abington~s leading businessmen of the 19th century. Mr. Harper ran a prosperous milll manufacturing iron farming and garden implements from 1857 to 1902 (site was across the road from the house). He owned most of the valley from Rockledge Ave to Moredon Rd, which served as the watershed for the original waterwheel powered mill. He also helped to organize the company that built the Philadelphia to Newtown Railroad (across the road in Lorimer Park, now the Pennypack Trail). The current owners have done many updates to the the property to make it comfortable and functional, while maintaining the charm of this historic home - including an updated, remodeled kitchen with custom cabinets and soap stone counter tops, a huge family room with slate fireplace and breakfast room addition, updated bathrooms, as well as a convenient upstairs laundry room. Warm, random-width floors (second and third floors have original Pumpkin Pine floors and master bath is Teak.) The partially covered patio, and mature plantings and gardens covering the grounds, provide a peaceful, serene setting to enjoy this lovely property. A wonderful house for entertaining both inside and out. This is a unique home in a beautiful location. Truly a must see!
