Welcome home to the Squire Cheyney residence! This historic property was purchased a few years ago by the present owner, who invested over 2 million dollars in restoration and renovations. Originally built by Thomas Cheyney in 1797, two additions were added in 1815 and 1850 as was typical for this period. During the American Revolution, Thomas "Squire" Cheyney - a compatriot of George Washington - provided information to him during the Battle of the Brandywine. Located on over 11 acres, the property affords breathtaking views of Chester County and is adjacent to the Squire Cheyney Farm park, consisting of 30 acres. Additional outbuildings include a well house and expansive 7000 square foot barn. The barn has been restored with new roof (and the roof line was leveled), new barn doors, and stabilized. Major renovations on the main house include a 40 x 20 addition of a new kitchen and lounge. The gourmet kitchen boasts granite counter tops, Brazilian pecan hardwood flooring, stainless steel appliances (Bosch), four burner stove and double oven, wine cooler, a farmhouse sink and Cararra marble subway tiled backsplash. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious family room with a soaring two story fireplace and spiral staircase boasting a walnut landing and handrail, leading to an upper level mezzanine. A side door and breezeway were added for access to the 3 car detached garage. The main entrance is found at the turn of the circular driveway, and ushers you into the formal living room and dining room areas that feature exposed beams, birch hardwood flooring, two original stone fireplaces that have been converted to gas and paneled columns that hide the new HVAC and ductwork. But wait, there is a mechanized trap door that leads to the restored basement, where the floor was lowered 3 feet to allow for extra head room and reinforced with steel beams and columns. The master bedroom suite is located on the main floor and features exposed walls, a gorgeous freestanding tub and radiant heat flooring. On the second level 3 additional bedrooms are located, all with en suite bathrooms. The third level boasts an additional room that may be used as an office or study or 5th bedroom. All new electric, HVAC, Jenn-Weld windows, LED lighting and roofing plus a stunning wrap around porch and stone walkway are meticulously blended with old world charm to make this a one of a kind property!
