- "A home by the wood is a suitable Saxon name for the country-seat of Charles Hartshorne, in Lower Merion, on Hazlehurst Avenue, near Wynnewood Avenue and Merion Station. The ample and beautiful dwelling of stone and slate was designed by Addison Hutton, and constructed of Trenton brownstone. It was finished in A.D. 1886 and occupied at once by Mr. Hartshorne. About twenty acres of ground are in the property. About six acres are wooded, and one entrance is a rustic drive through the grove. On a part which originally belonged to the tract Edward Y. Hartshorne, son of Charles Hartshorne, is just completing a house of stone and frame, of antique design, with a hipped roof."
