Rarely does such an exquisitely perfect property come on the market. Every detail, inside and out, has been crafted to the highest standard. From the first approach through lush gardens and private vignettes, to every corner and detail throughout the home, a tone of elegant sophistication and relaxation is felt. Set on almost 4 private acres with a brook and pond is this sunning 5 bedroom, 4.2 bath masterpiece home. Four wood-burning fireplaces, wide barn-board flooring, plaster walls, exposed chestnut beams and antique hardware are seamlessly blended with superb cabinetry that appears to have been crafted in the 18th century. The wall-long breakfront, the entire kitchen and the television cabinet are craftsmanship at its best. Several significant additions to Fernwood were designed by Archer & Buchanan, internationally recognized architects. The first floor master suite includes a dramatic bedroom with fireplace and wall of windows opening to the porch. A luxurious bath and fitted dressing room complete the suite. Two additional bedrooms have en suite bathrooms. A barn-inspired second building holds an oversize three-car garage and spacious additional upper and lower levels serving a variety of uses. The upper level has a full bath and is plumbed for a kitchenette? perhaps to be the perfect au pair or guest suite. The potting shed is located in the far end of the lower floor, and enjoys a powder room and enclosed outdoor shower. Bountiful outdoor living spaces, including bluestone patios and a covered porch, extend the length of the rear of the home, showcasing the idyllic country tranquility. Blossoming flowers and trees mix with endless stonewalls, making the landscaping of this property world-class. A sunny, cheerful and bright home is created by an abundance of windows and glass doors. Kitchen appliances are high-end, and all of the home's mechanical systems have been recently updated ? everything to the highest standard. Fernwood is located in Unionville's equestrian community and Cheshire Hunt's Tuesday country, and just a short stroll from the walking access only Runnymede Sanctuary. While on the edge of Amish Country, the home is only a 40 minute drive to Wilmington and an hour to Philadelphia or Baltimore. The Parkesburg train station, with convenient access to Philadelphia and direct trains to New York, is only 10 minutes away. This is the perfect property for someone seeking the epitome of quality, serenity and country living.
