Description

There is a lot of room for living and entertaining in this handsome 1758 Chester County farmhouse on just short of an acre in Westtown Township. The original stone farmhouse was built by early settler, John Townsend, and is noted by the Township as a home of historic value. It was expanded in 1989 with a sizable Amish-built addition of wood-peg mortise and tenon construction, creating a dramatic large family room/living area and sizable loft area with exposed wood beams and wood paneling. The finished living area in this home is 4,289 square feet and has an interesting amalgam of formal spaces and more casual congregating spaces with stone or wood surround. Enter from a flagstone patio to the updated country kitchen with open beam ceiling, brick fireplace, three wall ovens, and granite countertops. The laundry area and powder room are just off to the side and a screened porch opens from the back of the kitchen out to bucolic views of the backyard. The formal dining and living room, both with fireplaces, span the other side of the main level. Downstairs there is a fun labyrinth of fieldstone spaces +GG a media room, family room with wet bar and built-in cabinetry, and sitting room +GG all with fireplaces. The stone social spaces lead into the addition +GG a wow of a +G+party room+G- or the perfect office space, an homage to wood and quality craftsmanship, with its own entrance, french doors out to the yard, and walk-up loft with a vaulted beamed ceiling. The second floor hosts a full bath and three well-lit bedrooms, one with a fireplace, and the other connecting (once a nursery perhaps?) to a sunny large primary bedroom with sitting area. From the primary bedroom, a curved wooden staircase leads up to a third level with a full bath, built-in storage, and three more potential bedrooms, or maybe just the coolest kid sleepover space ever! If you love the quality construction and interesting architectural elements of old homes, this is your house. It has wood floors, fireplaces, brick, stone and wood elements, crown molding, exposed beam ceilings, bullnose windows and deep sills, and surprisingly good closet space. The lot feels private and lush with mature plantings and a beautiful lawn. There is a 3 car detached garage and plenty of additional parking. This one of a kind living space is ideally located, offering peaceful suburban living with close proximity to the fine dining, arts and industry of the County Seat.
