This phenomenal home may be the most fascinating, intriguing home on the market today! Set on 14.6 acres across three parcels, and mixing both traditional and contemporary features, this home looks like a wonderful Chester County stone barn conversion at first glance. Sensitive to the property's historic setting which overlooks the Brandywine Valley and the very roads General Howe used to flank General Washington at the Battle of the Brandywine, the owner sought to incorporate native fieldstone walls and cedar roofs. These traditional textures enhance the design's bank barn feel, accented with eye-catching architectural details. One enters the home into a bright Foyer which features a ceiling shaft soaring more than 35 feet to the top skylight. Straight ahead are large glass panels that offer stunning views of the property's pastures and plantings. To the right is the Living Room with a plush carpet on which the Brandywine Creek's course is illustrated. Down an interesting hallway is the home's peaceful Office complete with a fireplace and rich cherry raised paneling and custom shelving. The Dining Room boasts a curved wall of glass panels and wood flooring that came from the landmark 1906 Sears Building in Chicago. The Family Room offers a soaring ceiling, fireplace, a large bar with pass through to the Kitchen, and lots of glass with stunning views. Off the Family Room is a large patio with a pool and the ever-present fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. The gourmet eat-in Kitchen features high-end stainless appliances, ample Italian and custom cabinetry, along with plenty of workspace. A large three-car, heated Garage is easily accessed from the Mud Room. Upstairs are two bedrooms joined with a Jack-and-Jill bath, Laundry, Guest Room with en-suite bath, and a gracious Master Suite. The Master Suite offers numerous amenities: a wall of windows with automatically retracting blinds at the foot of the bed to unveil incredible views, a private porch, fireplace, walk-in closet, shoe closet, incredible bath, and an upper level which offers additional space for meditation, office, or hobbies. At the end of a hallway is a huge Gym with a stone wall, lofted ceilings, an oversized steam shower, and plenty of space for all of your exercise equipment. Wine enthusiasts will love the wonderful wine cellar in the sub-basement, twenty feet below ground level, affording the perfect temperature. The barn offers ten large box stalls, a tack room, and a garage area for all your equipment. The barn's upper level, with on-grade access, offers a massive loft with volumes of space plus a workshop area with a powder room. This home has been well cared for and loved. All of the roofing is new and the property has been impeccably maintained. This is a true showcase property!
