Property Description

Fabulous property back on the market! Previous buyers unable to secure financing. Idyllic "Valley View Farm," circa 1790, is nestled on ten pastoral acres with a petite meandering stream, down a stone wall-lined private lane, wrapped on two sides by nearly 100 acres of preserved land, in the heart of Pickering Hunt country. This exceptional 6,000 square foot historic home, with additions, combines beautiful period details -  four fireplaces (one walk-in), exposed stone walls, gorgeous random width plank flooring, wood paneling, exposed beams, front and back stairs, Dutch door and original hardware - along with updated amenities and infrastructure - 2 en suite master bedrooms, vaulted ceilings, skylights, 5 zone heating, copper gutters and brand new roof -  to create the best of gracious, yet comfortable, rural-feel living. The property is ideally situated just minutes from vibrant Phoenixville and charming Kimberton Village, fifteen minutes to Paoli's Amtrak station that will jettison you into Philadelphia, or land you in NYC in under two hours, with close proximity to the PA Turnpike, Rts. 202, I76, 476 and all major regional thoroughfares.  Access the home via the freshly sealed 27 x 24 deck, into the beautiful center hall entry with front staircase and fireplace that opens to a formal-yet-comfortable living room with exposed beams, custom built ins and recessed lighting.  The center hall also opens to a spacious, sun-filled formal dining room, with gorgeous exposed stone wall, fireplace, bay window alcove and deep-silled windows - the perfect venue for everyday family meals and activities, yet ample enough to beautifully accommodate special occasion and expanded holiday gatherings.  The kitchen is conveniently located just off the dining room, and opens to the vaulted ceiling, sky light-illuminated sun room, with floor to ceiling exposed stone wall, propane fired wood stove and Dutch door egress.  The main level also includes a generous study space with plenty of natural light that flows to an expansive, custom wood paneled family room with glorious walk-in fireplace that family and friends will love to gather around. A well positioned powder room and laundry room complete the main level floor plan. The upper level of the home includes a sumptuous master suite, with coffered ceiling, recessed lighting, amazing views of the bucolic landscape, luxurious master bath with soaking tub and separate shower, along with a custom designed and outfitted walk-in closet that is sure to please.  Just down the hall is the second master bedroom suite, with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, ample closet storage and full bath.  Two more well-sized bedrooms and a full bath are located just down the hall, at the top of the back stairs.  The unfinished third floor is already equipped with plumbing and offers the potential for even more living space, while the large walkout basement includes a workshop area.  A bonus office / home school / crafting space with wood stove that is attached, yet separate from the main dwelling, is accessed by a dedicated entrance off the deck.  This extraordinary property also includes a three stall barn, as well as a two story, two bedroom guest house with kitchen and full bath, and a charming and functional spring house! This optimally located property provides so much beautiful, flexible space, and plenty of room to play outdoors! Please be sure to view the virtual tour and schedule your private showing today!
