Over 39 acres of old growth woodlands and meadows with a stream with flows into the Brandywine Creek provides a gracious country setting for this 'Wind in the Willows' historic farm. Included with the home are a stone and timber-framed barn, spring house, green house and in-ground pool. Located in East Brandywine Township, the property is privately situated within Downingtown School District, in close proximity to routes 322, 113 and 30 By-pass and access to convenient services, with low real estate taxes (Act 319). A conservation easement, managed by the Natural Lands Trust, permits three dwellings: The existing house, the conversion of a habitable barn, and the development of a new house with a separate lot. The property also provides for an on-site walking trail to connect to the Stuble trail and Hibernia Park. The adjacent 30 acres to the North and West are owned and managed by the Brandywine Conservancy and provide added privacy. With nearly 3000 sq. ft, the house has five bedrooms and three baths, a great room with two fireplaces, a dining room, butlers pantry, large updated eat-in kitchen which provides enough room for a large family. The walk-out basement has a wood burning-oil fired combination boiler to furnish hot water and heat. The partially remodeled stone barn provides for two bedrooms/two baths that was designed to become an in-law suite. The lower section could be used raising all types of animals. The in-ground pool needs some TLC which can be serviced from the stream. The classic spring house has cool flowing for storing beverages and watermelons for your pool party! The multi-purpose outbuilding can be used as a green house, potting shed or storage.
