Property History
The 1815 Moses Lukens House can be traced all the way back to the original Patent from John Penn in the early 18th Century. Part of an original 183 Acre tract that is now known as Maple Glen. Original interior of the house remains historically intact.

 
Property Description
The 1815 Moses Lukens House is a fine example of a Pennsylvania Federal Farmhouse. The house was constructed in 1815, but the property itself can be traced all the way back to the original Patent from John Penn in the early 18th century. Originally situated on 183 acres in what is now known as Maple Glen, the Moses Lukens farmhouse, bank barn and carriage house are now located on 2.3 acres set back from Welsh Road. The original interior plan of the home remains historically intact with a grand center hall entrance with two large rooms on either side, each interconnecting and opening into the hall itself. The front and matching rear doors are original, including the locks and brass knobs. The staircase, chair rails and window moldings are also original. The beautiful interior doors on the first floor are cherry and pine on the second floor as was the custom of the day. The center hall mural was believed to painted by an itinerant artist for the wealthy Lukens family and is now waiting to be restored (or left as is for you history buffs). Presently, the house has five bedrooms and two and a half baths and seven fireplaces! Take note of the King of Prussia marble fireplace surround in the oversized drawing room, a walk in fireplace in the kitchen and Mercer tile in the mudroom. The mechanicals of the home have been updated. Central air installed on all three floors in 2019, new hot water heater in 2020, updated electric, a new concrete floor in basement and gas service to the house. The hard part of the renovations have been done for you. This classic farmhouse is just waiting for a new owner with the vision to bring it back to it's original grandeur.

The two story stone Pennsylvania bank barn on the property is absolutely stunning. You will appreciate the soaring ceilings and oversized custom windows and skylights that bring in an abundance of natural light. Exterior barn doors slide back to reveal french doors that allow access and even more light when needed. The barn is heated and industrial ceiling fans have been installed for increased air circulation. The present owners are using the barn for storage for their in-home business. The possibilities for this approx 7,000 sq.ft. space is only limited by your imagination. Would be ideal for the artist, sculptor, car collector, home gym, family movie theater, etc.

A carriage home, built in 1827, located across from the main house, completes this compound. The carriage house has electric, heat, and split system air conditioning, as well as a powder room. The carriage home is zoned for in home professional use as well. There is still plenty of room on the property to play and create a wonderful outdoor space (pool, perhaps?) in the park like setting behind the barn and home. Located in the highly rated Upper Dublin School District. Conveniently located near PA Turnpike, Septa Trains, downtown Ambler, the new Pavillion shopping District and Center City.
