Privately set, well off the road down a long lane, sits this stellar 4 Bedroom, 2.1 Bath stone home dating to c.1808 with later additions. In 1991 a seamless addition was added to the home designed by Charles T. Okie, son of the famed R. Brognard Okie, which incorporates antique building materials into the design to make the new rooms appear as if they are part of the original. On the first floor is a formal Living Room and Dining Room, both with museum quality punch and gouge mantles, original oak floors, and stunning hardware. The Kitchen was recreated in an 1840 addition to include high end Viking appliances and custom pine cabinetry. Off the Kitchen is a Breakfast Room with lots of glass that offers verdant views of the gardens and fields. The Family Room has exposed beams, a stone hearth fireplace with a crane, and wide width wood floors. Upstairs is a wonderful Master Suite with a stunning full Bath and Walk-in closet - something you do not expect in an antique home. In addition to beautiful Williamsburg inspired gardens, the home has 5 working fireplaces, Marvin custom windows, period lighting, and a 7 zone state-of-the-art propane heating system! Off the parking area is a 2 Bedroom Guest Cottage created from the ruins of a cabinet makers shop, one of only two remaining in Chester County. The Guest Cottage also has a full Kitchen and a full Bath. A four car Carriage Shed was also created from the ruins of a former farm building and has room for equipment storage. The impressive stone barn ruin has had the stone pointed and capped to preserve its integrity. Open for Chester County Day in the past, this wonderful farm is well priced for today's market, is convenient for the commuter, and offers the finest in country living.
