    Description

    Nestled on a country road in a quiet corner of Landenberg, this stately farmhouse on 7.3 acres is offered to buyers for the first time in nearly a century. Built of field stone hand gathered from the property one has but to gaze upon it's traditional lines and details to appreciate the magnificent craftmanship that went into the building of this home. The owners have been very thoughtful stewards, preserving the historic character, ambiance and aesthetics of the home with just enough modernization to allow for the comfort of the modern day buyer. Entering the home, the traditional center hall sets the tone with original hardwood floors seasoned by time to a beautiful patina. Flowing off the center hall is the formal living room, dining room and family room. The living room features woodburning fireplace with original rustic cupboard and you can just picture curling up on a snowy day with a cozy fire. The family room was originally two parlors where the owners have removed the separating wall but retained both fireplaces creating a space which has become the heart of the home, perfect for family gatherings and entertaining. The dining room can best be described as simple elegance with its original moldings, built in china cupboard and deep windowsills. The kitchen, is in what we believe to be the original portion of the homestead dating back to 1802 was remodeled in the last few years to include glossy white cabinetry, granite counters and stainless steel appliances. Just imagine, this and the room above it which is the 4th bedroom, accessed by its own stairway, was once the entire home! Perfectly situated at the back of the main level you will find the spacious laundry and mud room plus private full bath with tub/shower combo. As you travel the stairway to the second level take a moment and admire the beauty of it~s simple lines, the gentle wear on the treads from the footsteps of all the generations who have lived here and loved this home. In the upper hall the bedrooms fan out in the traditional fashion featuring the master bedroom with it own fireplace as well as an adjoining room which is perfect as a sitting room ,dressing room, nursery, or office. Bedroom two is nicely sized with wonderful light and as was the custom of the day, a charming chifforobe serves as your closet. Bedroom three is slightly smaller but oh so charming and allows a second access to the fourth bedroom. Reminiscent of a simpler time a shared hall bath with shower/tub combo completes the second level. The third level is unfinished and used for storage however the rooms are nicely sized and could easily be turned into additional living space. Stepping outside is the flagstone patio, a wonderful spot for morning coffee or dining al fresco! Follow the path from the patio to the lovely Sylvan Gunite Pool, beautifully and tastefully landscaped with perennials and featuring plenty of patio area this will be the summertime hangout. No worries about your pool equipment being exposed to the elements as the pump etc. is enclosed in its own custom shed. Car enthusiasts will be thrilled with the oversized 4 car garage artfully created from old barn ruins with a separate large storage area for lawn and gardening equipment. There are no deed restrictions so feel free to bring your toys! Add a stable and fencing and bring your horses too! Though the location is rural, you are close to shopping and restaurants and commuting to Delaware, Philadelphia, Baltimore, or APG is a breeze. This is a very special home well worth your time and attention, the home has been well maintained and inspections are welcomed for buyers peace of mind, however seller intends no repairs.
