Property Description

Elegant, gracious Manor home on 6.9 acres with all the hallmarks of a historic home built by General Beverly in 1746 and expanded twice in the 1800's---living room, Owners Suite, , basement, Kitchen ,den and additional bedrooms above- as so many of these old homes were. More additions /expansions in 1967- the expansion of the kitchen, den and addition of a second staircase and more bedrooms above. In 2004 the icing on this cake was a mud room, pantry, bedroom enlargement and screen porch off the owners bedroom. In all these expansive creative moments, the integrity of the architecture was maintained--Wide floorboards, deep windowsills and walls, incredible gardens and stone terraces, 5 fireplaces some with original mantels, and a period carriage house with a delightful 1 bedroom apartment above. This house is from another era, filled with charm and many architectural features and yet there are all the modern touches one wishes to have... Generator, Air Conditioning, new windows, baths, kitchen, radiant heat in brick floors, updated electric, plumbing, heating . The property was converted to PUBLIC WATER AND SEWER also in the current owners time . With the 2004 gorgeous addition by famed architect Peter Zimmerman ,the laundry and pantry, mudroom and huge soapstone sink are all right next to the fabulous, gourmet kitchen !! The spacious kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator, 6+ burner/griddle Viking stove with 2 ovens, a second gas cooktop , 2 sinks and storage and counter top space galore!!!! Lovely stone terraces give serene views of the gardens and house, while the large screened porch off the master bedroom is completely private with totally different garden views. There are privately fenced areas for play yards for all ages! or simply pet's outdoor space... Pet doors included!!! The quaint apartment over the garage has updated bath, kitchen, sitting room and bedroom!! Perfect for those weekend country seeking guests!! The stone terraces that meander across the property are perfect for a pool next to the original pool house(sold as Is). The 6.9 acres was previously sub divided . If a discerning buyer is looking for all the charm, character, and quality construction from years gone by, coupled with every modern convenience look no further!!!! All this located in the award winning Unionville Chadds Ford School District, biking distance from the bustling town of Kennett Square with its shopping and well known restaurant scene, walking to renowned Kennett Square Country Club, minutes from Route 1 and Route 52 into Wilmington for the train station........ Welcome Home!
