Outside are the lovely grounds. The Southern Magnolia tree in front of the house is a Spring Valley landmark. It was planted nearly fifty years ago. Although it had a slim chance of surviving in the Northeast, it has weathered years of freezing temperatures, snow, and ice. It blossoms in June, but has several other interesting stages throughout the year i.e bright red cones in Autumn. The entire back property is enclosed with a combination of wood fencing and Robert Benners Invisible Deer Fencing. It is safe for children and dogs, and keeps deer out. The garage/barn was used for horses, generations ago, and was restored in 2012. There is a storage loft above. The patio was installed in 2009. The sitting wall is made of stones salvaged from the foundation of the house, when the kitchen and pantry were rebuilt from ground up. Perennial landscaping and beds throughout the property: Kepich & Associates, Holicong. Historical Notes: Our neighbor (barn red building across Watson Creek) was once a blacksmith and supply store; across from that (formerly Robertson & Thornton Antiques) was an inn; on opposite side of the road the stone structure was the millworks. Farmers brought their grain to be milled; had wagons, horseshoes & harnesses repaired; ate and slept at the inn. 3 miles from the Regional Rail Station to Philadelphia, 3 miles from the Trans Bridge Bus to NYC, and 25 miles to Trenton Amtrak Station.
