Here is your opportunity to own a piece of Chadds Ford at its best! Set upon breathtaking views from all around, this 18th century farmhouse and estate is reminiscent of a Wyeth painting. At the front porch of the Farmhouse you will admire the incredible perspective of the pond, pasture and barn. Upon entering the home, you will marvel at the modern feel while still maintaining the 1750’s charm. Features adding to that charm are wide-plank hardwood floors throughout, generous sized rooms with deep windowsills, built-in bookshelves and original cabinetry. Adding to the appeal are the gorgeous fireplaces in living room and family room. The kitchen was renovated recently to include granite countertops, built in appliances and 6 burner gas stove. It is also open to your family room with updated windows, antique wood paneling that overlooks your land as you cozy up with family or entertain guests. Upstairs there is a large master suite with private bath. 2 additional spacious bedrooms, large sitting room and hall bath complete the 2nd floor. There is also a partially finished basement with laundry to top off the home. Recent system updates are Geothermal heating and cooling and tankless propane hot water heater. Back outside, nestled in the hillside, there is a classic bank barn with agricultural/livestock space at ground level and a second level hay storage and third level former art studio accessed by an elevated crosswalk. The Spring house has added attributes with a bedroom and bath. Plus a separate 3 bay stone detached garage. This property is lovely as is, but with a little vision could be a stunning showplace or venue. Property is under Act 319 for tax saving purposes. House, Barn and buildings are on 12.75 acres. There are 2 separate tax parcels, with building envelopes, one that is 7.9 acres and the other is 4.79 acres adjacent to the 12+ acres that may be purchased separately or all together. All 3 parcels under easement with North American Land Trust. A copy of the easement is available upon request. The area is surrounded by estate properties with conserved land. All this and is conveniently located to Greenville, Centreville, Chadds Ford, Wilmington, Kennett Square and West Chester.
