Full Listing Details:
1600 East Street Road, Kennett Square is searching for an owner who seeks more than trite new-construction. This property is overflowing with timeless charm and character. Park in the courtyard inside the gates of this property and enter the main house through the covered porch which doubles as a potting area for the well-manicured gardens. An absolutely breathtaking wisteria twines the arbor connecting the main and guest houses. Inside the main house an enormous mudroom, far larger than today’s standards, welcomes everyone home. It’s complete with wood burning stove, exposed beams and built-ins. The spiral staircase in the mudroom leads up to what’s currently used as a home gym. Go down into the basement behind the mudroom and find two new boilers and professionally maintained building systems, and an original root cellar that’s been converted to a wine cellar. Back up and through the mudroom enter the eat-in kitchen where an enormous dining area can fit the whole family for dinner. Up a few back stairs, two large rooms boast parquet floors and beautiful wood built-ins. The original kitchen, circa 1900, serves as the current dining room and is complete with the original walk-in functioning fireplace. Two living areas complete with three more fireplaces round out this level. Upstairs a multi-room master suite complete with fireplaces, dressing area, and private bath connect to the aforementioned home gym. Two more bedrooms complete with hardwood floors and fireplaces share the common hall bath. Head up to the third floor and another bath and fully finished loft with exposed beams can serve as another bedroom suite or play area. And if all of that weren’t enough, a complete guest house with billiard room, kitchen, bathroom and upstairs loft can hold those out of town guests or serve as a place to host summer pool parties. An over-sided detached two car garage with small workshop and covered firewood storage round out this very well priced property. This home, outbuildings, gardens, and vegetation have taken a lifetime to cultivate. Walk right into this piece of beautiful history.
