1230 Birmingham Road

West Chester, PA 19382

Welcome to this amazing estate in historic Birmingham Township. Expertly maintained with a stunning blend of original and new, this home has a rich history. Its modern conveniences and thoughtful renovations show a pride of ownership that is hard to match. Hawthorne Lodge was built by Charles Sharpless using locally sourced materials and is registered in the historic Chester County Homes Registry. Built on Battle Hill (a major historic site and focal point of the Revolutionary War), this 6 bedroom home is centrally located on a bucolic 3.6 acre lot, in the award-winning Unionville-Chadds Ford School District and within walking distance of many landmarks associated with the Battle of the Brandywine including the Birmingham Meetinghouse, Birmingham Hill (100+ acres of conservancy land) and the monument to Lafayette's first battle. As you enter the property through the bold wrought iron gates, you will first be taken with the large wraparound porch that boasts more wrought iron fretwork. You certainly can't miss the magnificent gas lanterns that have been converted to electric for a wonderful glow. Enter into the grand hallway and you will instantly feel transported to another era in history. Rich in opulence and grandeur the completely renovated Waterbury kitchen with adjoining sunroom added in 2003 expertly blends the old with the new. The rich hardwood floors, the commercial grade appliances, the warm tones, and the bright large windows that bathe the room with warmth and light will wow your guests. Enjoy hosting parties in the elegant dining room and then retiring to the impressive living room with its original mantle and moldings. The 2nd and 3rd floors ensure a peaceful respite from the day's work, with 6 bedrooms and the completely updated master suite and bath, added in 2010. The additional 2 bathrooms have been updated including fixtures and finishes that help carry the historic feel of the home. A large walk-in cedar closet on the 3rd floor is perfect for the storage of fine goods. The basement is perfect for additional storage and/or a modified living space. Let's not forget the guest home/in-law suite, designed by John Reynolds and completed in 2008 above a detached garage. This separate, bright living space includes a full bath, bedroom, living area, and kitchenette. Another special feature of this property is its relic stone outhouse with "his" and "her" entry that is a rarity and one of only a handful in the county. Don't miss seeing this gem!
