Remember the idyllic Philadelphia home from the movie Marley & Me? Well, it's for sale. Located in Chadds Ford (Chester County) this historic stone farmhouse was built in 1837 and is listed at $1.45 million. It sits on 16 acres of land and includes a 6 stall horse barn with fenced pastures. (Speaking of the barn: remember the scene in the end of the movie where Marley is lost, so Jennifer Aniston looks for him in the barn? For a split second, we get to see the gorgeous sliding barn doors and horse stalls... I gasped, the barn was so pretty. And, that's just for the horses). The home has 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths and still looks the way it does when it was shot for the movie...

In 2009, Philadelphia Magazine featured this marvelous 19th century farmhouse in an article called "Farm Charm."
I love the chunky baseboards, wide plank floors, and historic details of this home. This shot with Jennifer Aniston (below) shows off the yellow trim and built-in window seat:

I particularly loved this image of an antique daybed, covered in colorful, eclectic linens...
Heres the shot of the same room (with the daybed) in the real estate listing:
The kitchen is brand new, but the homeowners built it to look original to the house (with the beam ceilings and large windows). Nice work, wouldn't you say? I love the windsor style barstools. :)
So, if you're looking for a little piece of historic Philadelphia, maybe this home is for you!
