About our home

Renovated raised ranch on 1 acre in the suburban countryside of Northern Chester County. Sleeps 7. Well behaved people and dogs welcome. Fiber Optic Cable TV with Shotime and Wireless Internet. Sirius Satellite Radio. 1 acre yard is totally fenced. Outdoor 5 person hot-tub. Outdoor Firepit. Webber Propane Professional Grill. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen. 3 TV sets. Indoor wood burning fireplace. Central Air Conditioning. Less than 10 minutes to Marsh Creek State Park (boating on lake), 20 minutes to French Creek State Park, 5 minutes to Phoenixville nightlife, 45 minutes to Center City Philadelphia (15 minutes to regional rail to city), 15 minutes to Valley Forge. There is SOOOOOO much to do here - and not enough room to describe it. Shopping, culture, rural, suburban, and urban. Everything is here. Rock climbing. Skiing. Amish. Pennsylvania Dutch. Hunting. Hiking. Camping. Boating.

Rural. Hike the local lightly traveled roads or the official and unofficial trails. The closest village is a 30 minute walk, but not much is there: a post office, antique store, gourmet french restaurant, and a few other local businesses. The township park (ballfields, gazebo, paved hiking trail, etc) is a 10 minute walk. Everything else is available via less than 5 minute car ride: restaurants, liquor store, tobacco shops, super markets, gas stations, specialty shopping, and every other service and shop imaginable.

I am a local real estate broker. My wife is a mechical engineer employed as a systems designed by a worldwide conglomerate. We have a dog and two cats. We would like to swap with people who can take care of our animals but are not bringing any of their own. We will still consider people who want to bring their pets or are unwilling to care for ours, as long as we are able to kennel our pets while you stay in our house. We expect anyone who swaps with us to respect our home and leave it as you found it. We will do the same for you. We require our own propriatary contract for house swapping to be completed by all parties of legal majority.
