About 1020 Wylie Rd
Your dream of owning a historical, country estate can now be a reality with 1020 Wylie Rd in West Chester. This late 1700s - early 1800s estate offers a 5 bedroom, 2.2 bath Serpentine Stone farmhouse with 6 fireplaces, plus a 1 bedroom, 1 bath studio, bank barn with 13 stables and more. This private getaway is nestled perfectly on 10 acres, yet within minutes to major routes and amenities, and in the highly sought after Unionville-Chadds Ford School District. From the moment you make your way up the driveway past the large, circa-1820s, picture-perfect stone barn and 13-stall horse stables you immediately feel like you have arrived home. When on the front porch, stop to take in the breathtaking and private 360 degree view of nature. Enter through the detailed front door with an original transom window to be greeted by original wide plank wood floors that lead into your inviting living room. The living room is outfitted with a wood-burning fireplace with a period-specific accented mantel, built-in shelving, and oversized windows with deep sills that let in an abundance of natural light. Follow the paneled wall down the hall to find your convenient half bath. Continue into the home's most original space, used as a keeping room, with a large functional walk-in wood fireplace and a tucked away staircase. From here you can either head into the ultimate drop zone/mud room area equipped with a laundry room with accented built-in cabinets, or head into the massive kitchen. The modern kitchen offers a two-seater island, abundance of storage, curio cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a 6-burner gas stove. From the kitchen you can also gain access through glass pocket doors to the cozy great room with a stone wood-burning fireplace, or enter through a swinging door to head into the formal dining room that also features a wood-burning fireplace with a detailed mantel. Both the great room and formal dining room lend access to your screened-in porch that overlooks the rolling hills that are your land. Head up the magnificent staircase to the second level where you will find your owner's suite oasis, equipped with a private deck, custom-shelved walk-in closet, and your private bath featuring two separate sinks and a glass stall shower. Also on this second level you will find three more generously-sized and well spaced bedrooms, (two with yet more charming wood-burning fireplaces; one featuring a gorgeous built-in), your half bath, and a spacious full hall bath with wood floors, his and hers sinks, medicine cabinets, and a shower/tub combo. Your third level offers an oversized loft area with an abundance of natural light that can be used as a 5th bedroom or office space. The third level also features a separate unfinished attic space perfect for storage. Not to mention the large easily-finished basement that provides you with even more storage space. Head outside to the two-car garage that is attached to the sizable, fully equipped studio efficiency with a loft and private patio space. Use this separate guest house as an in-law retreat, to host out of town guests, or as a studio space. In addition to the two-car garage you have an abundance of parking, including a roundabout to make navigating in and out a dream. Follow the short thoughtfully landscaped path to the immaculate fenced-in inground pool with a paver patio that overlooks over 100 acres of open space where the Battle of Brandywine took place and backs to the Firethorne Estate community's wooded open space.
