Is this Chester County farmhouse an old home or a new one?

Yes.

Specifically, the answer depends on where you look.

The exposed-beam ceilings, stone fireplaces and iron stoves, thick timber doors and other details make it clear this home’s been around a while. Yet the thoroughly modern kitchen, airy sun room, grand staircase and other features in the three-story addition have brought this structure into the 21st century.

Unlike some of the farmhouses that have been featured in this space recently, this one anchors an actual farm covering 16.2 acres. There’s a four-stall barn and fenced pasture on this property, along with a recently renovated guest house and three-car garage. The main house also has its own fenced enclosure.

If you’re looking to live the life of a “country squire,” this is the perfect place for you to do it.
