Farmhouse Friday: Pastoral West Chester Gem Listed for $2.75 Million
It’s been in the hands of one family for close to a century, but now’s your chance to make it yours: Deborah’s Rock Farm in West Chester is on the market. Listed last month for a cool $2.75 million, the historic 88-acre estate claims a 9,000-square-foot stone manor home that’s been beautifully preserved and maintained, original bank barn, and tenant house. To boot, it’s got frontage on the Brandywine River and views of the Natural Lands Trust Stroud Preserve.
Like several of our farmhouse selections, Deborah’s Rock claims distinct architectural details that amplify its rustic appeal: brick-floored entrance hall, seven fireplaces, wood-burning stove, beehive oven, and a stone ha-ha wall. The country kitchen, which overlooks the gardens and Preserve, is centrally located at the core of the manor, making it easy to move between the formal dining room and family room.
Additional features of note:
- Laundry room on main floor
- In-ground pool in private glen
- Springhouse, tractor shed and workshop
- Comes with Brandywine Conservancy Easement (forbids sub-division, but allows for one additional dwelling of up to 10,000 square feet)
- Attached garage
