Property Description

Once in a lifetime opportunity to restore two charming 18th Century buildings nestled side-by-side along the picturesque Pickering Creek at Merlin and Pickering Roads. These historic buildings anchored the original Village of Merlin, an important Chester County crossroads for industry and agriculture in the 18th & 19th centuries. The first building is a sweet three-story stone house reportedly built in the 1830-1840's. There are two bedrooms on the second level and space for a possible third bedroom in the attic, which has a dormer and many windows. The second building is the old J.J. Emery Cider Mill, a two-story structure featuring gorgeous exposed stone interiors, two stone fireplaces and a wonderful stone courtyard overlooking the
creek. Stunning views, wildlife, and the rush of the creek are all enjoyed from nearly every window and the exterior deck/porch of each building. There is a beautiful stone wall along the creek side of the grounds. Live in one house and rent the other or create an artist studio/in-law suite next to your home. The two buildings are contributing resources in the Middle Pickering National Register Historic District and are also listed resources under Article 16 of the township Historic Resources Protection Ordinance. Buyer needs the vision and resources to completely renovate both buildings. Buyers without an understanding of the realities of renovating historic properties are discouraged from considering this property. Roofs on both structures are newer. Buildings and septic system are being sold in as-is condition. Creek-side quarter-acre lot at 1794 Pickering Road is part of this sale and houses the septic system which is functioning but is in unsatisfactory condition (see listing agent for additional detail). Anglers will find a variety of fish including smallmouth bass, rainbow trout and brown trout in Pickering Creek. Easy access to the Pennsylvania Turnpike slip ramp at Rt 29, the Great Valley Corporate Office Parks, Rt 202, wonderful downtown Phoenixville and the charming village of Kimberton. Listing agent must accompany all showings. Please do not access the property without an appointment.
