Welcome to Guinea Bridge Farm, a stunning stone Quaker-built home dating back to 1745, the year that Ben Franklin first published "The Pennsylvania Gazette" in the United States. This magnificent property has been lovingly preserved to retain its original character and charm, with rare salvaged chestnut tongue and groove flooring in the kitchen and a large stone fireplace, exposed wood beam ceiling, and stone walls. Pella windows with interior wood shutters. As you step inside this historic home, you'll be transported back in time to the year when the United States was still a young and growing country. Imagine living in an era where the colonists were dealing with challenges like conflicts with Native American tribes, the French and Indian War, and growing tensions with Great Britain. Nestled on a private 14.88-acre lot in the Goose Creek Historic District, this home offers a serene setting with mature trees, rolling pastures, and a large pond that can be viewed from the expansive covered mahogany porch. Of the 14 acres, roughly 9+ acres are mature dense trees on one side creating privacy with tall trees like Walnut and Black Locust. Approx. 5 acres are rolling majestic pasture. The property features 4 working fireplaces, one in every room, and solid stone walls almost 2 feet thick, providing a cozy and comfortable atmosphere during chilly winter nights. In addition to the main house, there's a 4-stall barn for horses and a machine shed. The guest cottage/detached office provides extra space for guests or a peaceful retreat for work. The standing seam metal roof with galvanized steel gutters and 2 zoned oil heat offer peace of mind and comfort all year round. While the property is incredibly private, with all access via paved roads to downtown Purcellville, only 4 miles away, please refrain from drive-bys, as the home cannot be seen from the entrance.
