The Skinny: Built in the 1730s by Welsh settlers, this stone farmhouse, known affectionately as Plumb Nilly, was restored in the 1920s by Colonial Revival master R. Brognard Okie, who gained fame from his restoration of William Penn's colonial-era home, Pennsbury Manor. The charming, 2,600-square-foot farmhouse sits amid 8.7 acres of prime Main Line property, with a rolling lawn and established old-growth trees. If that's not enough leaf-peeping potential, the 70-acre McKaig Nature Conservancy abuts this property, with miles of walking trails. The house itself holds four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, six fireplaces, and original colonial details, while the grounds include a tennis court, a four-car garage, and other outbuildings. The estate, which came to market on Tuesday, is listed for $2.5M.
