    Property Details


    Come home to your own Country Resort and a piece of Delaware County & Wawa history! This magnificent 3 story Georgian fieldstone historic home dates back to 1790 and is known as 'Little Forge Hill'. It has been loved and hugged by it's owners over the years. The 3rd floor was added in 1812 and is documented by the date stamped on the outside of the addition and by the Historical Society. Baltimore Pike used to run off the dining room side of the residence and then was relocated to its current location and as a result of that the owner insisted that PENDOT construct the fabulous River Rock stone walls that welcomes you on to the property as well as other walls in the landscaping, which was harvested from the nearby Chester Creek. George Wood/Wawa bought the property in 1900 along with several other large parcels of adjoining this property. Thus Mr. Wood began dairy farming Rocky Run Dairy Farm and began home delivery of milk. At some point it became known as 'Home Farm'. As growth and expansion took place, they opened the first Wawa store in 1939, which gave birth to Wawa, Inc as we now know it today. The current owners have gone to great lengths to preserve, remodel and tastefully renovate to bring it to the exquisite estate it is today. The home is now 3400 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths with an in-ground salt water pool with new pump, new heater, new deck, new fence and (new- not new) covered cabana with new ceiling fan and shed near by surrounded by magnificent tiered landscaping using more of the original River Rock from the banks of Chester Creek.
