This unique property has to be seen to be appreciated. It was built as the Carriage house/ garage for the DuPont estate located next door. The architect was Brognard Okie and his hallmark woodwork and attention to detail and quality materials is evident throughout. The home has been tastefully updated while maintaining the original charm and character. Situated on 7 absolutely beautiful acres, it could not have been sited better. The upper four acres afford views almost to Philadelphia. The lower acres boasts a pond for fishing and boating. There is a detached two story garage/barn. The plantings have been selected with care and are a beautiful visual accent to this lovely stone home. The Main level is where you'll find an entry foyer, new kitchen, formal dining room and large open living room that is anchored by a beautiful stone fireplace and beamed ceilings. There is a quaint office alcove as you enter the Main Suite with full bath, high ceilings, French door to deck. There is also another room on this floor presently used as a den that could easily be a guest bedroom, along with another full bath and access to the stone patio. The Upper level is a storybook room with dormers and alcoves and used as an overflow bedroom. The lower level is actually full ground level in the front with three beautiful French doors that bathe the space in natural sunlight. Here you will find the radiant floor heated Great room with a gas fireplace and walls of bookshelves, two offices, laundry room, a bedroom with separate entrance to outside, full bath and open spaces for whatever use you may have. There is an unfinished basement as well. The garage is detached, quite large with a second story and you could easily store 3-4 vehicles here. Its hard to describe the feeling you get when sitting on the porch overlooking the grounds, or on the deck overlooking the pond, but it is quite magical. Sunsets are spectacular.
