Originally built in 1730 and enlarged in the 1780s, Fairbourne is an elegant, private estate being offered for the first time in seventy years. Twice featured on Chester County Day, this historic property is surrounded by twenty-seven private acres in Glen Moore. The setting is well off the road and includes mature trees, perennial gardens, a spring-fed pond, and spring house.All the warmth and charm of this pre-Revolutionary house has been preserved including original white pine, random-width flooring, five fireplaces, deep window sills, and antique hardware. The house is full of natural light, and every window and door offers a beautiful view. On the first floor is a beautiful country kitchen with new stainless appliances and Corian counter tops and washer and dryer hookup. The dining room has a walk-in fireplace with warming shelf and cooking crane, original built-in china cabinets, and two paymaster drawers. One step down is the Family Room with another walk-in fireplace, powder room, and built-in bookcases. The large formal living room has a fireplace and two original built-in corner cupboards with glass doors. The covered front porch can be entered from either the study or living room and becomes the outdoor living room during the summer months.Upstairs is a master bedroom with fireplace, three additional bedrooms, bathroom with large dressing area and a large, open hallway area with fireplace. The third floor has a large, walk-up attic that could be additional bedrooms, a home office, or a recreation area. The house also has a full two-room basement with second laundry hook up and an outside entrance. There is also a guest suite over the two-car garage that could also be a home office or space for the au pair, adult child or in-laws.The picturesque two-story spring house of stone and stucco has an enclosed room for the spring and another room with a walk-in fireplace, great for entertaining. The remains of the original barn are currently used for storage but could easily be converted to a stable and tack room, guest cottage or entertainment center all surrounded by the landscaped original barnyard walls.Located near the quaint, historic community of Glen Moore on the East Branch of the Brandywine Creek, the neighborhood is part of the award-winning Downingtown School District and home of Springton Manor Elementary School. Country living at its best but close to outstanding public and private schools and universities, golf courses, King of Prussia Mall, great restaurants, parks and hiking trails. Fairbourne is an idyllic retreat from the stresses of life; a place to relax, entertain, and to give your children and grandchildren a safe place to explore nature, enjoy swimming and ice skating at the pond, and to let their imaginations guide their play.
