Welcome home to the House of Gables! This is a rare opportunity to own one of Glencairn neighborhoods original homes that set the stage for becoming one of the area's finest locations. This home was one of the first 4 model homes, built to help get this Collegeville Neighborhood established. It was built in 1929, and has been meticulously maintained and improved by the current owners since they purchased the home in 1987. It is exciting that this is the first time on market since then.
