Coventry Forge Farm is a quintessentially historic Chester County country estate, replete with an 18th century stone farmhouse, a fully updated cottage, a studio along the meandering and trout filled French Creek, a 9-stall barn and 23.4 acres of pastures and open space to enjoy. Surrounded on three sides by the 535 acre Warwick County Park and in an area of numerous deed restricted properties, this farm is situated in a highly protected area. The property is of extreme historic significance. In 1717, Samuel Nutt built his home and the Coventry Forge on this property. This iron works was the first constructed in Chester County and only the second in Pennsylvania. Later, Mordecai Lincoln, the great-great grandfather of Abraham Lincoln, became a part owner in the business. Additionally, the works got the attention of such notables as Benjamin Franklin and led to the development of other iron works in this area of Chester County. The antique stone farmhouse is truly special and features deep windowsills and original flooring. You will love the original walk-in fireplace, still located in the Kitchen. The home also has its original root cellar located near one of the garages. Across the driveway from the stone home is The Cottage, fully updated and complete with interior stone walls, two bedrooms, Kitchen and bathroom – a perfect location for guests or in-laws. Off the driveway’s circle is a flagstone walkway that leads to The Studio. Built by the current owners for large scale entertaining, its Great Room has a large glass window providing tranquil views of the meandering French Creek and the farm’s woodlands. Relax while listening to the soothing sound of the creek’s waterfalls from The Studio’s large patio. For the equestrian, the farm also has a well built, nine stall barn with a tack/feed room and plenty of loft storage for hay and bedding. There is easy access to several pastures from the barn and equestrians will love the many trail riding opportunities directly from the farm, including the Horseshoe Trail just up the road. Rounding out the farm’s improvements are two garages capable of housing a total of 4+ vehicles. This wonderful property is within easy walking distance of both the Horseshoe Trail and the French Creek Elementary School in sought after Owen J. Roberts School District. The farm is also convenient to the Routes 23 and 100 corridors. Rarely does a property of such historic significance, coupled with numerous additional improvements, come on the market in such a highly protected location.
