Set in the heart of the historic French Creek Valley, where General Washington brought his army to rest after the Battle of the Brandywine, this idyllic 62-acre Chester County estate features a main house with 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, 2 car garage with loft storage, separate carriage house with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and garage, large horse barn, and 4 pastures. This historical home, which was built in the late 1700s, was completely renovated by the current owners, who took great care to keep both the renovation and the addition historically accurate in the Federal style with the appropriate millwork and hardware. Great attention was paid to light and layout, and all renovations were done with the highest-quality craftsmanship. The first floor of the house features an eat-in kitchen with custom book matched walnut cabinetry, large slate island, and views of the large fresh-water pond. There is also a large living room, formal dining room, and study (each with a wood-burning fireplace), as well as a powder room and formal entryway. The second floor contains two large bedrooms, a full bath, and the master suite, with wood-burning fireplace, walk-in closet, and full bath with Jacuzzi tub and stand-up shower. The guest suite is on the top floor, with another full bath and plenty of storage space. There is also a wealth of outdoor living space, with a large perennial garden and adjacent herb garden, back porch, and large side terrace overlooking the spring house and pond. Located just passed the large two-car garage, the carriage house would make a perfect in-law suite or rental property. Also impeccably renovated in the same style, this house features a large open floor plan kitchen/living/dining room with front porch overlooking the valley, a formal living room, two wood-burning fireplaces, two bedrooms and two full baths, back porch, laundry room and garage. The property also features a historic barn, with 5 stalls, wash stall with hot water, heated tack room, and drive-up loft for storage, as well as a chicken coop, and four separate pastures. In case of a power outage, a back-up generator runs the main house, basic functions for the carriage house, and water to the barn. With lush landscaping, large fresh-water pond, and breathtaking preserved views of the valley with the French Creek running through, this estate is a rare private retreat.
