A LEASE for fruen years, from the 2 $tb iJkreb next, in that
capital and beautiful FARM, called.
Situated within one quarter of a mile from the Brandywine
Mil!*, and half a mile from the borough of Wilmington.
THE dwelling house is built of stone, two stories high,
genterlv Snilhefl, and comainsfour handsome rooms on
1 floor, besides an entry, with capital garrets, and convenient
cellars, It is generally thought to command the molt a
rrceable profpeft of the Delaware, from the fouice of that
rivet to the Capes. This prolpefl ia greatly einbi-llilhed by
a full view of a vast b®dv ot meadow, through which the
Christiana and Brandywine creeks are seen winding in beau
tiful meanders. Near the house are a Kitchen, a spacious
stone stable and hay loft, a barn, a carriage house, miTn
houre, See. and a well of as pure water as any on the contl
nent. The garden contains an acre and quarter of land, a
bounding with fruit, and particularly with peach trees, of
,he very belt kind, brought from Maryland, and in full bear
•ng. There is, moreover, on the place, a young, apple
orchard to bear, and several old trees that produce
abundantly, betides cherry and other ornamental trees, m
great numbers. The farm consists of near sixty acres of land,
of good quality, and clear ot incumbrances, except taxes,
twenty of which are now in excellent clover and timothy,
and ten more will be ready tor lowing next spring. i re
fidenee ot nearly 8 year! has convinced the fubfenber that
the situation is remarkably healthy The great poll roa.
from Philadelphia to the Southward runs within teventv
yards of the house. In a word, the beauties and conveni
ence of this iituation eannot be enumerated in an advertife
tnsnt, and when examined, will probably command the at
tention of any person who is detirous of living at one of the
moll elegant country feats on the continent. The purehaler
may enter on the premil s net spring, or prrhaps, this (all,
if application be immediately made to Doctor NICHULAa
W Y ii PhiladelDhia, to Dotior u'H R1 ON, on the
yremiies, or, in his ablence, to Mr GEORGE THU' ' T, in
Wilmington. .
