Surrounded on three sides by the 535 acre Warwick County Park and in an area of numerous deed restricted properties, this farm is situated in a highly protected area. The property is of extreme historic significance. In 1717, Samuel Nutt built his home and the Coventry Forge on this property. This iron works was the first constructed in Chester County and only the second in Pennsylvania. Later, Mordecai Lincoln, the great-great grandfather of Abraham Lincoln, became a part owner in the business. Additionally, the works got the attention of such notables as Benjamin Franklin and led to the development of other iron works in this area of Chester County. The antique stone farmhouse is truly special and features deep windowsills and original flooring. You will love the original walk-in fireplace, still located in the Kitchen.
