Farmhouse Friday: Posh Dwelling Features Passive Solar Designs, Rain-Fed Stream
Trailing on the green heels of that beautiful – not to mention freshly price-chopped – LEED Plantinum-certified Slusher Residence in Fairmount is this wonderfully unanticipated home: a $1.65 million stunner also with LEED approval. Unlike the Slusher Residence, however, it’s a farmhouse lounging on a freaking wildflower meadow in Kennett Square. Ahem, excuse us while we go Pin-crazy…
No, but seriously. This place is definitely worth a look, especially if you’re interested in living in a pastoral setting for the long-term without giving up superbly modern amenities. (If you don’t believe us, the gallery will likely convince you.)
For starters, it vaunts passive solar designs, a recirculating rain-fed stream on the grounds and a fire pit on the flagstone patio. Inside, you’ll note the soaring timber framing, two stone fireplaces, cedar closets, and view-friendly exposures. What’s more, bonus features include a loft family room, soundproofed den/music room, and two built-in office spaces. Oh, and should you want to enjoy the surrounding nature without pesky bugs putting a damper on things, there’s screened MBR porch, too. Specs below.
