On the Market: Stone Colonial Horse Farm Near Coatesville
The house and barn on this 18-acre farm date to 1800 and have been meticulously maintained. The house has also been updated where it counts.
Looking for a historic house where you can pursue your passion for horses in comfort and style?
This old house for sale in Chester County’s Cheshire Hunt country is a sure find.
Literally: “Sure Find Farm” is the name of this 18.1-acre estate set amidst rolling hills and conservation land.
The property consists of a stone farmhouse, barn, silo and springhouse, all dating to 1800. Surrounding them are three large paddocks with access to a stream. The barn, with its six stalls, tack room, wash stall and feed area, is well equipped to take care of your horses, but we will focus on the spaces built to take care of you.
Those consist of a family room with a wood-burning fireplace, a dining room with a beamed ceiling and wood stove in its fireplace, a great room with a decorative fireplace that spans one side of the house, and an up-to-date kitchen.
That kitchen also has a beamed ceiling along with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, Ceasarstone countertops, a farmhouse sink and a large island.
French doors lead from it to an outdoor terrace where you can dine when the weather’s right.
The dining room sits on the other side of the kitchen, and it too has French doors that lead to an outdoor terrace.
Two of this house’s three bedrooms, including the master, have brick fireplaces as well. The master suite includes a large sitting/dressing room and an updated bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and double shower.
The hall bath shared by the other two bedrooms has likewise been updated.
With the Laurels Preserve and conservation land surrounding your farm, you won’t have to worry about creeping development wrecking this farm’s rural tranquility. But when you feel like going out on the town, you have Kennett Square a short drive away in one direction and West Chester a little further away in another.
