Exceptionally restored and updated, this quintessential Pennsylvania Farmhouse has been a three-time entrant in Chester County Day! Recent renovations (in the last 5 years) include a new cedar roof (with copper gutters and downspouts), two updated guest baths, a new front porch (new foundation and decking), re-pointed stone, and two new furnaces for the zoned heating and cooling system. Enjoy unexpected modern conveniences in the gourmet kitchen with a sub-zero fridge, Viking professional series gas range, and apron-front farmhouse sink. The custom furniture-style island was purchased from a Vassar show-house, and provides a casual seating area. The kitchen and adjacent formal dining room both feature deep windowsills and decorative (non-working) fireplaces... but the wide-plank pumpkin pine floors and the living room grand hearth fireplace (4' deep, 5' high, 10' wide) are the real show-stoppers! The cozy library/ den is cable ready and features built-in bookshelves, a wet-bar & wine fridge, and adjacent powder room. Listen to songbirds while you enjoy the beautiful gardens & private yard from the comfort of the three-season enclosed porch. The pumpkin pine floors extend to the second level where you'll find a peaceful master bedroom retreat with a walk-in closet and luxury, updated master bath. Also on this level is a second bedroom & updated hall bath, plus a room currently used as an office/ laundry room (could be bedroom #5). Upstairs on the third floor are two more bedrooms & an updated bath. Downstairs, the daylight walk-out lower level offers more above-grade living space. The lower level rec room is cable ready & generously sized with sunny windows. The handsome stone-floored office has a separate entry ... and you'll love the "petite" powder room too! Are you ready for one more surprise? How about a wine room with a stunning "wine grotto!" The yard and gardens are as special as the home, with mature, specimen plantings & perennials galore. Adding yet more charm & character to the property is a spring-house (working but not in use) complete with a bell-tower & potting/ garden shed. The over-sized two-car garage includes plenty of extra storage space. This exceptional, one-of-a-kind home is looking for the next stewards of its history, who will cherish this home and property for years to come! NOT on the national historic register. Super-convenient location just minutes from Malvern and Paoli.
