We don’t know what to do with this eight-plus-acre estate in Kennett Square.

Rest assured, it’s not its acreage that’s left us puzzled – though, admittedly, its park-like grounds do give the impression of being more vast than they are since the property is surrounded by conservancy land – because we’ve seen plenty of homes sitting on similarly sized, if not larger, plots of land. Rather, it’s the custom-built mansion, which at nearly 19,000 square feet has us wondering just what the heck does one do with all that space?

Don’t get us wrong – it’s gorgeous. Luxury details abound, interior stone walls, and Brazilian cherry and oak flooring throughout…just who wouldn’t revel in a home like that?  Take for instance the two recreation spaces present in the seven-bedroom home: one on the second level, the other encompassing the entire lower level. Then there’s the two-story guest wing. Guest wing!

Anyway, here’s a list of other lovely features you’ll find in this Chesco manse (and don’t forget to look at the gallery of photos below!):

  • Multiple fireplaces and staircases
  • “Caterer’s kitchen”
  • 6-car garage
  • Pool with pool house
  • Outdoor kitchen
  • Lighted tennis court
  • Landscaped terraces and gardens
