Jaw Dropper of the Week: Massive Chateau-style Compound in Chadds Ford
Hmmm, where to start with this one in Chadds Ford.
Well, the home is sat on over 10-acres of Chester County land in the Brandywine Valley, a major plus. Then the home is wrapped in a handsome Vermont stone facade that gives off those vibes that you’re probably in for a treat once inside (spoiler alert: it does). The grand entrance hall is decked out with a butterfly staircase with wrought iron spindles, and you won’t need slippers on the Italian marble floors during those colder months–they’re heated. The home boasts some flat out exceptional spaces. So many, in fact, that you might start to ask yourself, is this a resort?
Here’s the looooong list of goodies:
- Multi-story library with balcony, circular staircase and soaring coffered ceilings
- A living room with vaulted ceilings and stone fireplace
- Sunlit kitchen with high-end appliances and Butler’s pantry
- Two-tiered flagstone terrace overlooking the grounds and stream
- Private spa with wet or dry sauna and a hot tub
- Music room with mural
- A snooker room
The crazy thing is that we haven’t even gotten to the lower level, which might just be the best part of the home. There’s a “pub” with a wet bar, an 11-seat home theater (check the lighting) and a 1,200 bottle stone wine cellar with an impossibly cool stone sink.
Each bedroom, and there are seven, comes with its own bathroom and the master suite has a massive bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and its own private entrance to the library.
What makes this home rather unique is that there are two separate dwellings on the property–a two-bedroom guesthouse and a one-bedroom pool house. A previous video of the estate gives us a glimpse inside those spaces, as well as additional (possibly outdated) views of the rest of the home.
THE FINE PRINT:
