An exceptional Dawesfield property with two stunning stone colonial homes is available for sale in Ambler.
This spectacular 22-acre plot is surrounded by Wissahickon Watershed preserved open space offering stunning views. It also boasts stunning flora in the magnificent gardens which are surrounded by stone walls.
In addition to the two three-story homes, the property features three barns, multiple detached garages, sheds, a greenhouse, a spring house, guest house, 3-hole golf course, and a swimming pool.

Many historic items are included in the sale, including the bed Washington slept in while the property served as his headquarters. There is also the framed will of Richard Whitpaine signed by William Penn.
