HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY TO OWN A PROPERTY CRUCIAL TO THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. It was on the grounds of this historic house that the Battle of Germantown was fought on October 4, 1777. The house itself, named Upsala, was built in 1798 for John Johnson III, a fourth-generation colonist whose family settled in Germantown in the 1600s. Upsala is a fine example of Federal architecture, with a gable-roofed main block with four rooms on each of the first two floors and a rear ell that includes an enclosed winder staircase. The symmetrical facade features a pedimented portico supported by Doric columns and pilasters, which protects the front entry door and its fanlight. Upsalas interior rooms are notable for their height and scale as well as decorative millwork, plaster detailing, and fireplaces. Set back from Germantown Ave a good one hundred feet, the interior is laid out in the classic center-hall plan with library, dining room, and front and back parlors on the first floor, and four bedrooms on the second floor; and two more bedrooms, a carpet room, and a storeroom on the third floor of the main house. There is also a walk-up attic in the main block of the house. The 2-story ell that project diagonally off the back of the house contains a summer and winter kitchen on the first floor. The second floor consists of a nursery, a cook and waiters room, and a smokehouse. Property being sold as-is, with preservation easements on land and building.
