This pristine lot is just less than 14 acres and sits set back off the road in the private Pentland community in Centreville. The expansive property affords sweeping views of Brandywine Valley countryside. Enjoy all the seasons from the thoughtfully placed windows throughout the home as well as the large Ipe deck (new in 2021) on the rear of the house. Follow the tree-lined drive to this stunning contemporary stone home. Access the front of the house via the circle driveway or go to the left of the house to access the 3-car garage. Enter the front via stately stone steps into an open-air foyer where you get an immediate sense of the uniqueness of this home. To the right find the formal living room with gas fireplace. Continue down a private hall past a full bath and large closet to a private study with curved wall of windows. To the left of the foyer is the formal dining room. A swinging door leads to the updated kitchen with functional island and an abundance of custom cabinetry, cooking amenities, space for full table seating, and view of front garden. Attached to the kitchen is an additional office/butler’s pantry, laundry room and half bath, elevator, mudroom with mop basin and access to the garage. Returning to the foyer entrance, continue straight back to the large two-story great room which is the heart of this home. Adding ambiance to this impressive room is the open-air curved staircase as well as the two-story wall of windows bathing the room in natural light. Sliding doors open to the deck. The striking floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace adds to the cozy, relaxed atmosphere of this gathering place. Between kitchen and great room is a conservatory, perfect for houseplants or over-wintering tender outdoor plants. Beyond the family room is a game room with full bar, powder room, lounge area and sunroom overlooking the rolling hills beyond. Use either of two staircases to go to the second floor. Find the primary suite with fireplace, small hallway with mirrored doors hiding extensive storage, his/her walk-in closet, dressing room and large combination bathroom, laundry, and sitting area with radiant floor heating. Two additional bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath, and two more bedrooms share a hall bath. An unfinished lower level provides plenty of storage options. At the edge of the lot is a detached “two-car plus” heated garage (with water) that can house maintenance equipment and other tools. The outdoor deck overlooks a luxurious pool surrounded by a paver patio. Mature trees provide privacy and shade. A sloped lot provides unsurpassed views of the surroundings as well as the stocked pond below the hillside meadow. Enjoy the serenity of this private oasis while still having proximity to Centreville, Greenville, Wilmington, Philadelphia and all that the area has to offer. Pentland is ten minutes from Longwood Gardens, Winterthur Museum and Gardens, Brandywine River Museum and Mt. Cuba Center.
