“Stand on the corner of Silvermine and Valley Roads and pretend, as you look at the northwest corner that the year is 1796! There stands a dignified square white house, obviously brand new, the product of a man’s desire to have a suitable homestead for himself and his family.” (Jane R. Barry, Author ) And so the history of the Crowfoot-Ireland House begins. Boasting a spot in the historic Silvermine District, this home has many of the original features; a “keeping room”, formal living room, formal dining room, grand front staircase and rear staircase off the kitchen. Original hardwood floors are featured throughout the majority of the rooms. 4 Bedrooms, 4 Full Baths, 4 fireplaces, plus an enclosed porch offering a wonderful spot to enjoy the private backyard overlooking magnificent stone walls and mature plantings. A few of the “modern” touches include an addition off the kitchen and a detached 3 car garage with a potting shed with electricity and water! If you have a love of history and are up to the challenge of bringing this home back to its original glory then this is the house for you!
