Welcome to Collingwood. This historic Farm House is situated next to Valley Forge Park and boasts easy access to all major highways, approximately 3-4 minutes to 76, 422, 202, the Towne Center, Gateway Shopping Center, and the King of Prussia Mall. It still maintains the feel of a farm but is in the center of all major arteries in the King of Prussia area and located in the award-winning Tredyffrin-Easttown School District. The original stone part of the house was built in 1705, but the interior was completely redone in 1972. The unique and historic home has an open floor plan flowing from the updated island kitchen and Breakfast area into an antique, hand- hewn, beamed Family Room with fireplace. This room adjoins the inviting screened Porch on one side and a large open flagstone Patio on the other, all of which allows for grand summer entertaining and months of family enjoyment. Also on this floor you will find the formal Dining Room with fireplace and Living Room with a built-in bar. A wonderful Flex Room with Half Bath is enriched with a flagstone floor and would make a fabulous Office as it is separated from the main part of the house, has a direct entrance from outside and even has additional parking off the driveway for guests. There are 2 separate staircases from the 1st floor to the 2nd floor, one that takes you to the original section of the house where you will find 2 Bedrooms, one with an original fireplace, Hall Bath and an enclosed staircase to a 3rd floor Bedroom that has its own Bathroom. The second staircase takes you to the Main Bedroom with vaulted ceiling, Main Bath and a Nursery or Office. Enjoy parking in the detached 2 car garage as well as a one car attached with adjoining Hobby Room with a second Half Bath. There is direct access to Trout Creek from the back yard and a few steps across, lies the park. There are many colonials in our area but there is only one Collingwood. This is a storied property and an original Colonial Home. Two Generals under George Washington lived here during the winter of 1777-1778. Abijah Stevens also lived here during the encampment at Valley Forge and used his medical training to care for the Soldiers. His family owned the land that is now Valley Forge Park. Not many homes have survived for more than 300 years. The history is palpable, but living in this home is comfortable and exciting. Join the generations that have enjoyed General Dekalb’s headquarters and you can be a part of that History.
