"Anderson Place" c. 1714 & 1804

Phoenixville, PA

The oldest and most historically significant house in Schuylkill Township, Anderson Place was home to Captain Isaac Anderson who fought alongside Washington at Valley Forge.  To design an elegant home for a modern day family, Archer & Buchanan worked closely with the Schuylkill Township Historical Commission to obtain the necessary approvals for alterations. 

Their work involved structural stabilization; re-pointing of the original red sandstone exterior; renovating the kitchen, sitting room, study, master suite and bathrooms; refinishing existing oak floors; inserting new dormers to bring light into the third floor; adding an adjacent three-car garage with a bedroom and bath on the second level; putting in a new pool and renovating the pool house; and restoring a centuries-old spring house buried in the side of the hill. 

Antique and salvaged materials were used throughout, and new windows, millwork, stone, roof, and wood flooring were matched with existing to celebrate the unique architectural aspects of the landmark house and property.
