Historic Estate in Elverson, Once Part of Isabella Furnace, Hits Market

Isabella Furnace estate

A sprawling, 26-acre estate in Elverson that was once part of Isabella Furnace — the last to operate in Chester County — has hit the market. Lisa Dukart covered the property and its $2.1 million asking price for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The home at 261 Bollinger Road boasts a 5,743-square-foot main dwelling, three accessory buildings, a pool with a spa, and gardens — along with the remnants of its historic furnace.

The main house spans three levels; the previous owner repurposed it.

“It was an industrial building that’s been converted into a residence,” said Mark Willcox III, a Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices associate who has the listing.

The stone and brick-accented building transitioned into a home in the 1970s. Deborah Flint and her late husband, Theodore, who purchased the property in 1986, made numerous updates since then.

Among the changes, they converted the stone walls of former buildings into a modern wing with a primary bedroom and bathroom, several closets, and other amenities.

The overall home has two bedrooms and four full bathrooms. It boasts four wood-burning fireplaces and several living spaces with exposed wooden beams.
