My husband just got a job in Philadelphia and we are re-locating from Washington DC. We have been tired of the city for a while and fell in love with the scenery and old American feel of where they shot the PA scenes of Marley and Me.

I heard that Birmingham Township was where they shot this part of the movie. Does anyone know exactly where they found this beautiful house? It's exaclty what we're looking for and I am hoping there are similar homes near it that might be on the market.

After some googling, I found a blog of someone else gushing over the house and apparently the owner of the house replied Shade of a Beech Tree: Marley & Farmhouse

Sounds like it's in Chadds Ford or Brandywine and you might be able to find more about it from the article method: farm_charm

It sounds like you're looking for a historic home (this one in the movie was built in 1837) that has been kept up or restored. I think your best bet is to search for historic homes in all of the Philly suburbs rather than finding the specific town this specific house is in. There are a lot of old/historic homes in the Philly suburbs, you don't need to confine yourself to this town. Try: http://www.oldhouses.com/cf/listingl...n+Pennsylvania

I don't know what your budget is like but I imagine houses like this can be expensive.

The counties to the west and north of Philadelphia are a treasure trove of rustic historic homes.Chester County might be the best of them all

Chadds Ford,Pocopson,Birmimgham Township,Thornbury,East Goshen,West Chester,East Brandywine,Marshallton,Downingtown,Chester Springs,Lionville,Yellow Springs,Pickering Valley.

If you get a chance check out the old historic villages of Sugartown and White Horse which I believe are part of Willistown Township(Chester County).

Good luck

If you have children, stay within the Unionville-Chadds Ford school district. Birmingham Township is great because it is still in Chester County/close to the Borough of West Chester and the taxes may be bit lower than Delaware County. We moved recently from NY, and we are glad that we chose the UCFSD vs. the West Chester District. there are many beautiful historic homes and there is a lot of open space
