Property Sub TypeDetached
This Chester County property on 11+ acres offers 5,000 square feet for a unique buyer searching for an estate to accommodate a family home, a busy office, a large barn and additional outbuildings to store and maintain machinery, and a double outhouse, tastefully maintained. The historic property has served an active family with many interests and needs over decades and, at present, offers the right buyer an opportunity to update and transform it to meet present-day needs and tastes. A stunning hexagonal room with floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides and access to a deck and gazebo overlooking a pond, complete with its own mini-beach and small boat landing is a picturesque feature. An electric log fireplace is an additional feature in this room. The sizable bathroom off the hexagonal room brings in the outdoors through a stained-glass window and includes a separate bathtub and standing shower. An oversized recreation room, complete with beamed ceiling, fireplace, built-in shelving, pool table, and wall-to-wall carpeting can accommodate small wedding parties, catered dinners, or large family gatherings. A modest kitchen and a dining area with a view of the property’s mature trees and landscaped gardens offers a walk in fireplace that houses a free-standing antique stove, and plenty of cabinets-- in both cherry finishes and the home’s original farmer’s kitchen style. Additional spaces for living or dining rooms, office and reception areas allow for flexibility and invite creative repurposing. The second floor, part of the original house, offers three bedrooms, a kitchenette, a bathroom with shower, access to an attic, and walk-in closets.
The estate, once the home of a contractor who ran a Christmas tree farm as a side business, sits far enough from a state route to provide the privacy and feel of rural living.
