On the Market: Chester County’s Austen-Like Strawberry Hollow Farm

Strawberry Hollow Farm was once just a modest, 1,000-square-foot farmhouse according to architect Robert DeHaven‘s online profile of the project. That was about 300 years ago. Today, thanks largely to DeHaven’s work, the property has sprawled into a mix of historic details and modern updates covering four bedrooms including a soaring master suite.

The home’s floorplan reflects additions throughout the years of its existence. The kitchen and great room were added, along with a wall of windows and several decks. The original fireside living room, den and library remain. The master suite features post and beam construction and soaring cathedral ceilings. The en-suite bath includes a soaking tub and leads to its own private deck.

Of course the grounds are exactly as fabulous as the home itself. The ten acres include positively Austen-like gardens, a springhouse, private orchard, a pond and fenced paddocks. Even the driveway is spectacular, with its Belgium block and stone wall. The hidden gem of the property is a completely restored barn that is clearly ready to host your automobile collection or the world’s greatest summer party.
