  • Description

    This stately white farmhouse has watched over the White Clay Creek for 176 years. The house has a very special setting with a view overlooking the valley and surrounded on three sides by the White Clay Preserve, a conservation area that connects with extensive natural areas in Delaware, Pennsylvania and Maryland.The deeds of the property are traceable to a land grant of William Penn and its earliest recorded use was the cultivation of hops, hence the name given to it of Hopyard Plantation. The oldest wing of the present house dates to the mid-1700's while the main house was built in 1843 by Samuel Tyson as shown by an inscription in the cellar. The white stucco exterior, columned porches and overall proportions of its three stories mark it out as late Federal in style. The Chambers and more recently the Hopkins farmed some 200 acres here until the 1970's.It is a fine 19th Century survivor with many original features-interior layout, high ceilings, staircases, fireplaces, millwork, hardware, floors and some original windows- but adapted for modern living by improvements and additions in keeping with its period. This home also features a gourmet granite kitchen, beautiful inground pool, new roof, new deck, and so much more. A perfect combination of all of the character of an older home with the tastefully updated amenities of a newer home. Come take a look, you will be glad you did!!This property is being marketed in partnership with Briggs Auction, Inc. and is scheduled for public auction on Saturday, June 22nd at 12:00 Noon. The auction is subject to prior sale. All pre-auction offers are subject to auction terms and condition
