432 Timber Pass

A charming farmhouse from the 1700s is set on 1.4 beautiful acres with four bedrooms and two bathrooms and available for sale in Downingtown. 

This lovely homestead was once owned by John Hershey and remains one of the oldest intact food forests in America.

Its many great features include an indoor heated pool, hardwood floors, and a wrap-around porch. Additionally, the home perfectly blends old-world charm with the convenience of modern-day amenities.

Highlights include an alluring country kitchen with island and a walk-in butler’s pantry, dining room with walk-in fireplace, a secluded office, and a “keeping room” with fireplace. 

The primary bedroom on the second floor boasts walnut tops and interiors. This level is also home to two additional bedrooms, a full bath, and an office. The third floor features spacious living space as well as exposed fieldstone walls.

The large paver patio, with its stone wall, offers gorgeous, serene views. The homestead, that overlooks a nearby pond, is surrounded by many of Hershey’s fruit and nut trees that harken back to the time when Teddy Roosevelt commissioned Hershey to focus on trees and their benefit to humanity and their livestock.
