The SpaceA quiet hideaway on two floors of The Foreman House. Built in the 1830’s, the property is a Class 1 Historic Site and formerly part of The Leiper Estate, "Avondale" circa 1785, nestled in a valley on the banks of Crum Creek in Wallingford, PA. Please understand that we prefer multiple night stays vs single nights. We have made exceptions on occasion, but prefer multiple nights or a two-night stay minimum. Ideal for a romantic getaway, or to visit the many historic and cultural sites in the area, or for visiting college students or parents. Visiting professors and medical students performing residencies at area hospitals will find an ideal, quiet retreat to study or simply unwind and rest. Beautiful, original wide plank hardwood floors warm your private, two level space. The lower level on the second floor of The Foreman House includes a recently-renovated, open-space full kitchen, dining and living area with a quaint, cast-iron gas stove. The upper level on the third floor includes a beautifully furnished, romantic, open-space bedroom also with quaint, cast-iron gas stove, and a vintage-modernized full bath and soaking tub. Relax in the modern adirondack chairs on your private deck overlooking the spring-fed waterfall and brook, or walk the beautifully-landscaped and secluded grounds, footbridge, and paths, surrounded on two sides by Springhaven Country Club and the other by Avondale Road and Crum Creek. Walk down Avondale Road along Crum Creek to the creekside park on The Leiper Estate, and visit the The Thomas Leiper House and museum, circa 1785. The Den of Antiquity offers old world charm and new, modern amenities with a sense of seclusion near Philadelphia International Airport, Swarthmore and its renowned College, Media, Springfield, as well as minutes away from shopping and dining in nearly every direction. The Septa Bus line is a convenient fifty yard walk away, and the Wallingford Station on the Septa Media-Elwyn Rail Line, as well as Swarthmore Station just a few bus stops, and minutes away. The first floor of The Foreman House and the attached Studio are offices occupied by a design firm from Mondays through Fridays, and are rarely occupied on weekends. Guest AccessParking is in the rear of the building, from which you cross the footbridge. The entrance is on the second floor, just up the steps on the deck. The keys are in a lock box. The code for your stay will be provided prior to your arrival. The apartment will be cleaned and prepped for your stay. The bed will be made up with fresh linens and there are plenty of clean towels too. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances and dishes, silverware, etc. But there is no dishwasher nor washer and dryer. WiFi access is provided as well.
