Chester Springs, PA 19425

Welcome home to Dancing Deer Farm. This superlative farmhouse was built circa 1790 and is nestled on over 4 and 1/2 half acres of pristine Chester Springs land. Purchased in 1996 by its current owners, it was lovingly enhanced in 1998 by Arcus Design. The soaring two story entrance highlights the original stone wall and impeccable condition of the stonework. The living room/great room features the original hardwood flooring, walk-in fireplace and unheard of 9 foot ceilings that speak to the stature of the original owner. The additional three fireplaces are special in that they were designed by Count Mumford in 1790 to provide efficient heating, and which Jefferson had built in Monticello. Many areas of this home are adorned with murals depicting the elements of this property, including the ceiling in the music room. The gourmet kitchen boasts Dacor and Thermador appliances, ice maker, a built-in computer station and stately columned pillars embrace the family room entrance. All of the stonework for the dining room was harvested from the property and meticulously matched to the old stone. Radiant heating is used throughout the first floor and master bath. The second floor also has 9 foot ceilings, a master suite with separate sitting area and dressing room, walk in closet and separate staired entrance. The fifth bedroom suite, located on the third level, also has two additional rooms that may be used as a study, in-law retreat or au-paire suite or two more bedrooms. Additional space includes a finished lower level, a carriage house and a traditional Pennsylvania bank barn with work space and wood shop. The rear grounds are enhanced with a classic rectangular pool and stone pillar cabana. Because of its elevation and westerly exposure, a gentle breeze is almost always present and is the perfect reward after a rousing match of tennis on the tennis court. Other amenities include a bar with butler's pantry, a mud room and laundry room with glass pocket doors, exterior lighting and more. This property is wired with modern cabling for security, video, audio and telephone. Along with the renovation two new staircases were added for a total of 3, new hardscaping and patio were installed by Gaffney design, built in cabinetry and a cedar shake roof were added. Award winning Downingtown School district and Stem Academy! See listing agent concerning additional lot available for purchase for total of 12 acres.
