Rarely does an historic property of this provenance come to market. The home to one of Chester County's famed families, the Strode Family, for hundreds of years, this five Bedroom, 3.2 Bath home dates to the mid-1700's, but was tastefully and seamlessly added onto in 1991, with subsequent alterations in 2005. The oldest section of the home is found in the Living Room and Dining Room, both of which retain much of their historic charm and patina. Graced with original hardware, floors, doors, and moldings, this section possesses a unique character only found in noteworthy Chester County homes. The Living Room was once two rooms and has a corner fireplace in one end and a cooking fireplace in the other. Likewise, the Dining Room has the original walk-in fireplace and exposed beams. Both the Living Room and Dining Room uniquely feature higher than normal ceilings for a 300 year old home. The Entry, Kitchen, and Family Room are all part of a beautifully executed addition which retains the antique character of the older section but features contemporary details such as a cathedral ceiling in the Family Room and walls of windows in the Kitchen and Family Room overlooking the brick Patio. Upstairs in the 1991 addition is a stunning Master Suite with a vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet, and a gracious Master Bath. Four bedrooms and two baths are in the older section of the home, one of which features the original hand-planed, beaded board walls - a true rarity! In 2005, a spacious 4+ car Garage was added which has plenty of storage capacity for lawn equipment and even a 5th car. The loft of the Garage offers plenty of convenient storage space. Currently set on 2.1 manageable acres, this wonderful property abuts township open space. A perfect property for the commuter, there is easy access to Routes 202 and 1 and the commute to Wilmington is just 20 minutes. The Philadelphia Airport is less than 40 minutes away. Beautiful and fun downtown West Chester is less than 5 minutes away. This is a great property for someone seeking a legendary homestead that has been perfectly updated in a great, convenient location.
