It would surely do just as well for a family with kids still living at home given its proximity to the vaunted Downingtown School District, but its small town ties (it’s situated between Glenmoore and Honey Brook) and on-site workshop make us think it’s more of an ideal haven for a retiree wishing to hone woodworking skills they never got around to developing.

And guess what? In spite of its age (it was built circa 1807), listing agent Bill Cochrane tells us it’s been fully restored, so there’s no need to fret over updates. Notable features include a wide-front porch, living room stone fireplace, renovated master bathroom, and a kitchen with Rutt custom cabinets, Corian counters, tile backsplash, and another stone fireplace.

Off the kitchen is family room addition with built-ins, French doors, and an exposed stone wall–but the first-level room that really caught us by surprise? A jacuzzi tub bathroom (it’s lovely!).
