A FINE ROMANCE . . . wake to countryside quiet, breathe in the fresh air, entertain in a grand way in this historic property. Evoking a feeling of well-being and permanence, the Bodine Manor House is a fully restored and preserved stone colonial farmhouse dating from c.1780 and is the anchor of Pigeon Run Farm, a fully protected country estate on almost 14 private acres. A unique combination of history and quality craftsmanship, this luminous 4 bedroom, 3/1 bath estate blends the natural beauty of the land, the old-world charm of the past and the conveniences of today to create a total living experience. Gracefully articulated components like sunny, oversized rooms, period moldings, wainscoting, beamed ceilings, six-panel solid core doors, two-feet-deep window sills, hand sawn chestnut floors, and the original walk-in fireplace in the living room promise gracious living. From 1903 to 1912 William Bodine added two wings (north and south) to the original Pennsylvania farmhouse, increasing the living space to 4,820 square feet plus a full basement and stand-up attic. These additions complement the original architectural design in virtually every detail and include crown moldings and chair rails, built-in cabinetry and a butler's pantry. There are three additional working fireplaces: in the master bedroom, a second bedroom and in the dining room (surrounded by an Adams-style mantle.) The master suite includes a dressing room and roofed porch overlooking the original orchard. The owners have recently completed an historically accurate restoration, blending the antique features with renovations for today's living. These include a chef's kitchen with a 48" dual-fuel DCS range with gas grill, Sub-Zero refrigerator, granite island with Miele dishwasher, microwave closet, double and single sinks, 2 garbage disposals, and custom-built cabinetry that replicates the butler's pantry, while preserving the private kitchen garden and screened-in porch for outdoor dining. The 3 full baths have been completely reworked with marble, Italian tiles and top-of-the-line fixtures. The property offers old apple and pear trees, massive mature trees, woodlands, a stone carriage house fitted with 3 horse stalls, and the remains of a huge Chester County bank barn. The grand, stately charm of the Bodine Manor House is grounded in historic narrative. It's all here, just step inside and begin your story.
