Historic elegance abounds in this impeccably renovated 18th century federal style farmhouse. Boasting 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, this home truly leaves no detail spared and the craftsmanship in this renovation is superb. From the moment you turn into the drive, the sprawling 4 acre property spans out in front of you and you are transported in time, while still grounded to the familiar by the breathtaking 360 degree views that Chester County is renowned for. This home welcomes you with a grand entryway, situated just inside the threshold from a large deck that spans the front of this beautiful stone revival. Embrace the historical charm as you stand in the same grand foyer that has welcomed many prominent historical figures. These walls may hold fresh coats of pale blues and pristine whites, but the history is rich within this home, creating a comforting ambiance all its own. A traditional layout can be found, with nearly every room holding its own focal feature of a prominently placed fireplace with carved mantle. A formal dining, library, sitting room, office, and much more can be found on this primary level of the home. A genuine entertainer~s delight, this home~s heart is the chef~s kitchen, completed with soapstone countertops, a commercial range, pantry, and an expansive center island that is perfect for busy morning breakfasts or holding the anchor of socialization during a large gathering. Relax by the fire and dive into your favorite book in the library with floor to ceiling built-ins, perfect for the avid collector or stunning enough to spark a new interest. This home is filled with an array of rooms that are perfect havens for a homeowner. From the staircase, to the second floor hallway, you will find this space of transition bathed in natural light from a well placed window perched above the landing. A private oasis, relax in your master suite after a long day. Complete with a master ensuite adorned with a clawfoot tub and a his and her shower boasting ornate tile-work and dual rainfall shower heads. While the master bath will leave you in awe, the master suite continues to hold pockets of charm and convenience, including a spacious galley style walk-in closet complete with front loader washer and dryer pair. Spacious enough for a four season wardrobe and more, this closet is both functional and the hidden gem of this master. The additional two bedrooms on this level both hold the focal feature of fireplaces and space typically uncharted in a historic home. Ample storage can be found in both spaces that also share the use of a traditional full bath, rounding out the second floor. An additional bedroom, which exudes privacy, can be found at the top of its own spiral staircase. This space is also the perfect flexible space in the home. The interior of this home blends seamlessly with its exterior features, captivating and retreat-like in nature. To the rear of the home you will find a multi-tier covered porch, the length of the home. Picturesque sunsets can be taken in as you look out over the privacy of your sprawling lot with two of its acres fenced in with a freshwater stream flowing through, perfect for the equestrian lover. This gorgeous property backs to Ridley Creek and connects to both Radnor Hunt and Ridley Creek riding trails. Close to many major routes and public transportation, this stately home will check off all of your must haves for your next chapter in home ownership.
