A historic 18th century stone mansion, located in Western Berks County, Pennsylvania, was originally built in 1784. It’s been fully restored to its original design and furnished with period antiques of the revolutionary war era. The property was recently featured in the magazine Antiques, the premiere collectors magazine that has been published since 1922.
Our relationship with the mansion, began many years ago when Joel Zinn (an antiques collector himself) met and forged both a personal and business relationship with the owners. The insurance needs of a historic property with original antiques and fine arts are very unique. Zinn worked with Chubb insurance company to provide the insurance needed for the unique construction and craftsmanship. Chubb specializes in insuring historic and high value homes that have premium artisan construction providing coverages and services that will assure that the property can be restored to its original construction without compromise in building materials, craftsmanship and integrity.
Chubb provides a highly detailed building appraisal as part of its client service. The appraisal accurately values the reconstruction cost of the historic or premiere home using factors that account for existing construction to establishing proper insurance limits and account for the home’s proper valuation.
