The historic country estate of my dreams is for sale! I listed this 268 year old Colonial-era Georgian home, “Charming Forge”, about 10 years ago. It is now available again for only $825,000. This is such an amazing value - for a sensitively updated 7000 sq ft house on almost 50 acres in Berks County. The photos of the current listing don’t do it justice so please enjoy mine and for goodness sake, if you want to see it or buy it please let me know. I don’t take listings out there anymore but would relish the opportunity to represent the buyer.

274 Charming Forge Rd
Womelsdorf, PA 19567


Santa I have been good this year. Can I have this property please? 😂🤩

Happy Thanksgiving my fellow historic architecture enthusiasts! This is the childhood home of Thomas Mifflin, first governor of Pennsylvania, circa 1752. At some point the two historic buildings (the 2 story on the right is likely even older) were combined to create one uniquely special home. When my client said she wanted to buy this house, a couple of blocks from mine, the first call I made was to a structural engineer. Luckily she is standing strong and my client turned friend is loving living in her quirky piece of history. •
Thankful for so many things this year but for this post’s purposes, I am thankful for my new neighbor and friend! And to get to visit this awesome house!!!

@Regran_ed from @chstoday - It’s raining, it’s pouring... and it ain’t gonna stop any time soon. The good news: temps are heating up into the 70s today. The bad news: they’ll be back in the 50s tomorrow. Which do you prefer- warm and muggy, or cold and wet? // #charlestonsc #charlestonlife #charlestonmarket 📸: @charlestonsc_ - #regrann #realtorlife #realtor #sellingcharleston

Fall colors in full effect today! Weekend house hunting in Bucks County with clients. Couldn’t help but share some of the beautiful color and a couple snapshots of my favorite house of the day - a 1700’s Lumberville farmhouse updated to perfection!!!

New POD! 🎙️ Our friends from @knowhistorycanada and the “Notice History” podcast takeover this episode of Haunted Talks and join us for a walk! 🚶They turn the tables (microphone?) on us and ask about how and why we use history in our tours and what role it plays in how we promote our adventures to guests. Some of the answers are quite surprising! 😱

Listen on our website by following the link in our bio or search for "Haunted Talks" on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.

Gentlemen’s farm in Plymouth Meeting coming soon. Spent the morning touring the 12 acre property with historic home (c1750-1900) and 10 stall barn. This fixer upper needs someone with vision but it will be a bargain! Message me for details. •




It was pouring rain so I reposted this Plymouth Meeting photo from @mattisphoto. Thanks!

Holy Guildford! Calling all anglophiles! Had the pleasure of touring this 18 acre, 21,000 sq ft estate - just a stones throw from Philadelphia today. Masterfully put together from many salvaged rooms and pieces brought over from England. Some dating as early as the 900’s AD but mostly from the 16th century. A huge congrats to my colleague and friend Hannah Griswold McFarland @hhgriswold on the listing - quintessential Sotheby’s! Asking $9.3 million but undoubtedly worth so much more. •

Robert Venturi 1925-2018
I had the pleasure of representing and selling “Mother’s House” in 2016. This iconic home is located in Chestnut Hill and was the turning point of post modern architecture. Bob built it for his mother, Vanna Venturi, and it forever changed the perspective of architects and designers around the world. Rest In Peace. •

The epitome of luxury! I had the pleasure of previewing a historic Rittenhouse mansion yesterday which was painstakingly renovated. This 10,000+ square foot beauty can be yours. I don’t typically promote other agents’ listings but this one is special. Contact me for details. •

This 1930’s condo has some amazing stories to tell. At the time it was built it was the only “high rise” in the Forest Park community. Now it’s surrounded by many others. However, it hasn’t lost its charm or view!

One way or another, Charleston’s British consul, George Hopley, got his hands on the imposing Sword Gate, which he installed at 32 Legare by 1850. Likely built by Solomon Legare, the house had hosted Madame Talvande’s exclusive girls’ school in the 1820s and ’30s—it’s for that reason that high masonry walls surround the property today.
This home is one of those that springs to mind when I think of homes in historic Charleston.
Sword Gate was originally constructed by Solomon Legare, the man for whom Legare Street is named, this elegant estate of over 17,000 square feet includes 9 bedrooms, 13 full and 3 half baths and is one of the most impressive and historically significant homes on Peninsular Charleston.

Frank Furness Auction September 29th! Gorgeous 1888 cut sandstone and cedar shingle construction. Brooke Mansion has 42 rooms with 16 bedrooms, and was most recently a working B&B. Only downside is the location - Birdsboro in Berks County PA. Not much to do there and the closest city is Reading but what a spectacular property. It will likely sell for a bargain, well under a million. Don’t mind being in the sticks? This house might be for you! 75K buy in. •

Spent the evening with clients who bought their extraordinary Chestnut Hill home exactly 2 years ago today. What a transformation! It’s always such a treat to be invited back to a home to see “the after”. Scroll to the last photo to see what the living room looked like when they bought the house. •

Offer Time! How gorgeous is this beauty? She’s a beast on the inside though. Lucky to have a client who appreciates this historic fixer as much as I do! High ceilings, original wood floors, gorgeous light, Victorian era tile & mantles are just a few of the highlights. Fingers crossed she gets it🤞🤞🤞

1929 Center Hall Colonial - just put this picture perfect Jenkintown home under contract for some great clients (unnamed in case they haven’t divulged that they are burb bound yet). Can’t say enough about the quality real estate values here just as our city homes are skyrocketing. I sold the two houses directly across the street last summer. The “Gold Coast” of Jenkintown is definitely turning over to a younger professional generation. The commute is short with two rails to choose from, the public school is small and enviably amazing, the neighborhood is walkable and situated 5 minutes to Whole Foods & Trader Joe’s. Considering the burbs? Let’s chat about all your options. You might be pleasantly surprised. •

Historic Farmhouse Fixer Upper Alert! Just listed this 1830 farmhouse in Penn Valley for $691,000. It needs everything but it is so worth it. Situated on 1.29 prime Main Line acres. In the same family since 1959 - now ready for its next steward. Love a good fixer and this is a great one!
