Wish to own a piece of Chester County history, come visit The Collins Mansion, also known as the Joseph Collins House. This historic home located in West Goshen Twp, was built in 1727, and is a 2 1~2-story, stone dwelling, with a serpentine stone facade and fieldstone sidewalls. It was extensively renovated in 1758-1760 and in 2012 the present owners built a large modern addition and conducted other major renovations in the home. If not the, it is considered one of the oldest dwellings in West Chester (Find it on Google). After the 2012 addition/renovation the total square footage for the combined 1st & 2nd floors was brought up to 2280sq~. The lower level laundry room measures at 177 sq~ and the 3rd floor walkup loft area measures 280 sq~ and is currently used as a home office. Many reclaimed materials were creatively and professionally utilized for much of the renovations to brilliantly tie in the New with the Old and now has a much more modern floor plan. Consideration had been given to the utilization of the gathering area on the 2nd floor to make it a 3rd bedroom, but the present owners decided to leave well enough alone for now and leave that to the next stewards of this fine home. Despite the age of this home, you will find it Move-In Ready and you will find the surrounding outdoor areas perfect for relaxing, gathering and enjoying friends and family. Looking to move and for a change, feeling like you~re living on retreat every day, or perhaps looking for a place to retreat to after your busy work week in the city, this could be the perfect home for you. Come and tour this fine property rich with Chester County history, you will be impressed!**** Please note that after the 2012 addition, West Goshen Twp. changed the mailing address of the home to: 906 Collins Dr. ***
