Property Description

Formality meets casual luxury in this classic estate on 6.8 idyllic open and wooded acres in the private community of Bittersweet. A perfectly suited family home built by Dewson Construction, the area's premier custom home builder, with superior craftsmanship and exceptional attention to detail. Traditional architecture and quality materials make this updated, meticulously maintained property a standout. Natural stone walls flank the driveway entrance and are carried through the exterior of the home and repeated as interior accents. The cedar roof is enhanced with copper gutters, downspouts, accent roof and lighting. Reclaimed wide plank floors with brick accents anchor the main level. Crown molding and custom millwork detail the formal living room, gracious dining room, second office and luxurious main floor master suite, while hand hewn beams accent the informal spaces. Brand new Wolf stainless appliances complement the Sub-Zero refrigerator and Gaggenau steamer in the custom kitchen and wet bar, topped with granite and limestone counters. A sunny breakfast room and sunroom access the blue stone back patio and brick paths around the perimeter. Formal and informal powder rooms, generous pantry, three fireplaces, second staircase and a mudroom with cubbies add to the main floor amenities. Natural light fills the spacious upper level with 4 bedrooms, 2 jack-and-jill baths one au pair/in-law suite, and laundry with room for appliances. Use your imagination to complete the walk-up bonus space on third level. The lower level is well appointed for billiards, fitness, or media, served by wet bar and powder room. An additional finished room has wine cellar potential, and a cedar closet, ample storage and stair access to the 3-bay garage add to the utility. An inviting Lagoon pool is in harmony with the architecture featuring brick coping and a natural stone spa with waterfall, surrounded by lush garden and landscape. Horses are permitted. 3 Bittersweet is a rare find, offering the discerning buyer total privacy in an exclusive location, located in top ranked Unionville Chadds Ford school district, convenient to Wilmington, Philadelphia and beyond.
