Open several times for Chester County Day, and located at Trimble's Ford, the famous crossing used by Cornwallis during the Battle of the Brandywine, Brandybend Farm is the quintessential Chester County stone farmhouse. Set on 12 bucolic acres with an acre of frontage along the Brandywine Creek in Radnor Hunt's Brandywine Country, the c. 1780 farmhouse oozes charm and consists of 3 Bedrooms, 2.1 Baths, 6 Fireplaces (3 working), many with outstanding wood mantles featuring original gouge work, deep window sills, and shining wood floors. The property has been exceedingly well maintained and upgraded, with approximately $400,000 worth of recent improvements. The Kitchen includes high-end appliances and an abundance of cabinet storage which seamlessly complements the exposed beam ceiling and the original cooking fireplace. The historic Bank Barn features a stable for horses on the lower level and one of the best "Party Barn" spaces in Chester County on the upper level. The Event Room/Party Barn space (30' x 42' with 26' ceiling) is adorned with exquisitely pointed stone walls and a floor to ceiling fireplace along one wall, making this area perfect for large scale entertaining. Adding to the ambiance of this room are the large windows with views over the Brandywine Creek and green fields beyond. Adjacent to this room is the Barn Lounge (16' x 29') with a small Kitchen with high-end appliances, a Powder Room, and access to an adjoining deck, which offers sweeping views over the river, across the gardens to the house, and beyond. The stable on the lower level of the Barn features 3 large box stalls, a wash stall, feed room, tack room, and plenty of storage space. Outside is a Dressage Ring, stone tractor Garage, and several fenced paddocks. There is also a newer detached three car garage with storage space above. Located just 10 minutes from West Chester, Brandybend Farm is convenient to Wilmington, the Philadelphia Airport, commuter rail stations, and the route 202 and route 1 corridors. Although conveniently located, Brandybend Farm is quietly nestled in one of Chester County's most scenic and historic valleys. In Radnor Hunt Country, the farm is surrounded by hundreds of acres of preserved farmland. Brandybend Farm represents the epitome of fine country living.
