Retreat to a private oasis in highly coveted Charlestown Township in Chester County. Set amongst bucolic horse farms & sprawling estates, yet minutes from the Main Line & major thoroughfares, this property provides an ideal location for those that appreciate exclusivity & privacy, yet the convenience of being minutes from where they work and play. A complete & meticulous renovation brought this circa 1732 stone farmhouse graciously into the modern era. A high efficiency & multi-zone heating system, radiant heat flooring, new insulation, plumbing, electric & mechanical components are just a few of the high-end details you will find. The kitchen, providing sweeping views of the lush grounds and neighboring Pickering Creek, boasts a Viking stove, Subzero refrigerator & European under/over dishwasher. A laundry area with custom wood cabinetry, powder room & elegant living, family & dining rooms; all accented by Ball & Ball hardware & fixtures & beautiful stone fireplaces round out the main floor. Descend the stairway to the lower level where you will find two generously sized bedrooms as well as a hall bath. Enter through a leaded glass door to the master suite which includes a bedroom with fireplace, private entrance to the upper floor, an office/sitting area, & classic marble bathroom featuring a soaking tub, double sinks & oversized stall shower. A fourth bedroom with ensuite bath is accessed via the great room with vaulted ceiling and reclaimed wood beams. The privacy this room provides allows you to utilize this area as an in-law or au-pair suite if you wish. Let your imagination take you away when entering the fully renovated, ca. 1720 carriage home, situated at the corner of the property. An income producing rental, artist's studio or home office are just a few of the options this 1 bed, 1 bath building with cathedral ceilings & A-frame studio addition provides. The extremely private, newly renovated in-ground pool is a joy on summer days. From the pool, enjoy views of your mature gardens, sprawling lawn, soaring trees & the valley beyond. A property which includes a modernized & classically renovated yet aesthetically historic farmhouse, private, beautiful grounds, a perfect location, & the opportunity to produce income from a guest house is a find so rare that once you visit, you will need to make it yours.
