The Tiller/Davis Quaker home is nestled in the beautiful section of Philadelphia called Germantown. The exterior stone and blue shutters are stunning on their own, and are also in stark contrast to the warm, inviting interior of one of the first Quaker homes in Germantown, Philadelphia. Lucky for us, these owners fully appreciate their home’s history, and they have truly embraced it and brought out the true, historical beauty.
>> See Quaker Quest Gallery! Darrell and James have lived in this Quaker home for 8 years and have tried to keep true to the history of the house, yet incorporate modern touches. They have remodeled much of the home already and take pride in their work. The 2nd floor bathroom was given a face lift and it turned out great! Another point to take notice of is the original pine and oak flooring throughout the house — it's such a great original feature and the home wouldn't be the same without it.
