This East Falls colonial was modeled after George Washington’s Valley Forge HQ

It’s the priciest listing in East Falls

The $575K price tag on this home in East Falls makes it the priciest listing in the neighborhood at the moment. But that asking price buys you a home modeled after the first U.S. president’s headquarters at Valley Forge.

Built in 1925 by Lawrence Washington, a descent of George Washington, the home does look like it belongs in the countryside somewhere in Pennsylvania. Like the stone structure in Valley Forge, the exterior of this 4-bedroom home features a front door to the left of two windows, and three more windows above.

Inside, the kitchen has been updated, and there’s potential for more upgrades throughout the rest of the home. There’s also a nice sunroom in the back that opens to a cute backyard with stone one-car garage.

And fun fact: This 2,939-square-foot property just happens to be a 3-minute walk to another home with ties to royalty, Princess Grace Kelly’s childhood home on Henry Avenue that her son Prince Albert recently purchased.
