Today of all days–thus far anyway–should remind you of the the “urban heat island” effect, wherein cities experience more heat than less populated satellite areas. With that in mind, consider this 20-plus-acre West Chester property, on the market for $998,000.

First thing’s first: it’s a horse farm! It claims a 5-stall barn, pastures, and a five-bedroom farmhouse. The property is protected by the Natural Lands Trust, but can be subdivided. Interior notes in the residence include a fully finished basement with guest room, kitchen with granite tops, and a first-level bedroom perfect for office use.

And lest you think its country-living state will keep you out of touch with the the rest of the world, know there’s still downtown West Chester, Downingtown, and Exton (i.e. restaurants and shopping options!) still within driving distance. (Sidenote: there’s a 3-car garage). Who said you have to go down the shore for the summer?

Beds: 5
Baths: 4 full, 1 half
Square feet: 3,935
Price: $998,000
Parking: 3-car garage
Additional Info: Land can be subdivided
