An Historic Mansion to Call Home

Filed under Facts, Home Buyers, Montgomery County, Renovations on May 03,2016 | Tagged in: , , , , ,

When Sal Paone Builders begins work on Washington Manor, a new home community on the grounds of the former Piszek Estate in Upper Dublin, they’ll also be restoring a beautiful mansion with a storied past.

In 1777, the Emlen House served as George Washingon’s headquarters prior to the Continental Army’s march to Valley Forge.

From the living room, General Washington wrote more than 100 orders to the Continental Army and Congress. In later years, the mansion hosted numerous political, religious, and historical figures. The three-story mansion, to be fully renovated and eventually sold, includes five bedrooms, five-plus bathrooms and a computer room/family room on the upper levels. The first floor features a huge eat-in kitchen, dining room, family room, study, and mudroom off of a three-car garage. The home’s property backs up to 35 acres of permanently preserved open space consisting of woodlands and a lovely stream.


Paone Builders will initially use the home as a sales center for Washington Manor, then make it available for sale. For a buyer who values historical significance, a meticulously crafted restoration and beautiful natural surroundings, this home truly has it all.

"I worked with Donna Brun for the past year to sell my home in Cold Point Manor. The real estate market has not be optimal for sellers. I have to share it was a pleasure to work with Donna. Her commitment and honesty were important to me. She cares about the work she does each day which I find so valuable and refreshing in business today. I would highly recommend Donna Brun to help you with your real estate needs." - Scott Passman
