Lovely ca 1800 Chester County farmhouse on bucolic 12.8 acre property, located on a quiet country road in Unionville Chadds Ford school district. Offering privacy, historic charm and modern amenities, this home features a pond, pool, bank barn/ garage and barn apartment, all combined with high-tech energy efficiency.
The meticulously maintained four bedroom, three bath house retains its original charm with 4 fireplaces, antique wood floors, light fixtures, doors and hardware. However, it has been thoughtfully updated for a modern lifestyle. The winding tree-lined driveway leads to a wrap-around front porch with ceiling fans looking out over a landscape of fields and pond.
The front door leads to the formal dining room and living room, both with original floors and fireplaces. The heart of the house is the large kitchen and living area, combining the historic charm of the original house with the modern lifestyle of an open-concept plan.
With random width white oak floors, the kitchen has a 6-burner Wolf cooktop, double Electrolux convection wall ovens, custom wood cabinets and oversized island with walnut top and seating. The cozy seating area features a fireplace and woodstove, access to the screened-in porch, and side porch entrance. A mud room and full bath complete this level.
Up either the front or back staircase find the master suite with walk-in closet, additional closet and updated bath with tiled shower and double vanity. Three more well-sized bedrooms all with ample closets, a small library with fireplace, guest bath and laundry room complete the second level. The large walk-up attic features a bonus bedroom/office and plenty of space for expansion. A huge basement with an additional outside entrance offers dry storage as well.
The house was fully renovated with energy efficiency in mind, including two WaterFurnace Geothermal HVAC systems, spray foam insulation, all PEX plumbing, new well, oversized septic system, 2015 roof, energy-efficient windows, updated electric with 400 amp service and buried power lines.
A large bank barn built in 2009 has three garage bays, second level tractor entrance and a modern one bedroom apartment on third level. An in-ground salt water pool and cabana overlooking a beautiful vista is the perfect place to relax on summer days.
This property is tucked away, offering privacy and solitude while being just minutes from downtown Kennett, West Chester, Wilmington and the Philadelphia airport.
