Description

Woods Edge Farm is only 5 minutes from downtown Kennett Square, yet is in a world of its own, nestled amongst rolling hills and forested land. This exquisite property includes a ca. 1730, 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom home with several additions spanning nearly 3 centuries. 7 fireplaces (6 working), original random width oak floors, deep windowsills, historic hardware & woodwork are showcased throughout. A formal living & dining room, sun-strewn kitchen with custom tile backsplash, and an oversized great room which includes 2 of the 7 fireplaces leads into an ca. 1790 addition known as "The Tavern." It is replete with a wet bar, wood beams, and a wood burning stove. A ca. 1960's addition includes a laundry area, full bath, and large room suitable as a 6th bedroom with outdoor access. Excellent as an in-law or au-pair suite, or, if you have dreamed of owning a Bed & Breakfast, this would make a wonderful private owners suite. Upstairs you will find generously sized bedrooms & bathrooms, a great deal of closet space & storage for a historic home, and access to the attic; suitable for storing items or easy to finish into extra living space. Step outside on to your stone patio and get ready to enjoy the 28 acres you call home. Seemingly endless trails provide access to mature woodlands ? a paradise for horseback riders, hunters, hikers, plein air artists, or those that enjoy fishing for big bass in their very own pond. A ca. 1910 barn features 3 horse stalls on the bottom floor, as well as space for small animals. Upstairs you will find a soaring ceiling and hand hewn beams, begging you to renovate into a fabulous party barn. Not to be forgotten, there is a storage shed, dog run & historic smoke house in addition to the full sized tennis court & 2 bay garage. A conservation easement held by the Brandywine Conservancy assures much of this property is protected from development; however, subdivision of 2, two acre lots for new homes is possible. This nearly 300 year old "estate" has it all ? the potential for a fruitful B&B, the pastures for equines or a hobby farm enthusiast, the subdivision possibilities for an owner/developer, and the draw for those that appreciate history and fine country living yet enjoy shopping, dining & cultural activities close by.
