As you enter the curved driveway, you will feel as if you have stepped back in time to a more genteel life in this bucolic setting. The stately 3 story brick home features Glen Gery brick laid in a traditional Flemish bond pattern. The mahogany wrap-around porch provides a view of the large flower gardens & trees on the property. Located in the countryside of Cochranville, PA, the property is easily accessible to major routes leading to Philadelphia, Wilmington, Newark & Lancaster. All are within a 45 min drive. Being within the Octorara Area School District provides an opportunity for an excellent education whether they are college bound or prefer to focus on a trade. There are also easily accessible private & parochial schools in the area. The home, based on house designs popular in the 1790s features a pent eave, large exterior moldings, divided glass windows & brick pathways. As you enter the house the plaster walls & hand planed wainscoting imbue the home with a feeling of permanence & solidness. The foyer, with its wide oak boards sets the stage for the rest of the house. Several species of wood flooring; tiger maple, poplar & cherry are used throughout the home. An elegant 4 ft wide cherry staircase, with hand turned spindles and a walnut railing leads from the foyer up to the 3rd floor. To the right of the foyer is the LR, with a Rumford FP designed by the owners. The well-proportioned LR also boasts hand planed paneling with hand-painted marbleized baseboards. Adjoining the LR, through a fluted arch, salvaged from a grand home in Coatesville is the library. This room will hold a multitude of books & provide a pleasant sanctuary for getting away with a good book. And to add a bit of mystery to the library, numerous, extremely well-concealed secret compartments are there for you to discover. Across the foyer from the LR is a well-appointed DR, which in addition to the raised panel wainscoting offers 2 large corner cupboards which were built exclusively for this home. The cupboards feature scalloped edge shelves & are topped with intricate dentil molding. The trim work & attention to detail in this home are unrivaled. The DR leads into the kitchen where 3 prominent brick arches open onto the FR, allowing more light into the room. The kitchen boasts handmade cherry cabinets & light colored Corian countertops. The cook can easily keep abreast of what is happening in the FR & breakfast rm. 11 ft cathedral ceiling & lg FR windows fill the rm with sun.
