NEW PRICE: This is an Architect's house. Every room has an unseen ray of light or hidden angle to explore. Whether one enters from the front porch or back patio, one is in for an adventure of surprising detail. The house has a serendipitous feel and each room its own unique characteristics and charm. The curved ceilings in the kitchen are mirrored by the cut marble floor and double curved archway to the dining room. There are crown moldings and extraordinary mill work throughout the entire house and the front hallway has an intricate marble and wood inlay. There are multiple skylights and atrium windows bringing sunshine and moonlight to unexpected places. The upstairs master bedroom suite has two private baths and separate closets, as well as a private deck. There is also a large adjoining second bedroom and full bath. The downstairs living space includes a separate living area with outside access, two more bedrooms, another bath and a large laundry/storage room. The solarium connecting the living quarters to the front living room, kitchen and den is stunning. The solarium doors open out onto a large back brick patio and fire pit for summer socials. The kitchen is a private oasis for serious cooks, with three ovens, cook tops and glass walls looking out onto the patio area. There is a new octagonal deck off the back side of the house for a quiet morning retreat. The driveway entrance is through two large wooden gates and twists up the hill to the covered parking and shed area. There is plenty of parking for 4 or 5 cars above and another 5 down below. The house sits on a 2.8 acre, mostly wooded lot, and has a whole house generator. This section of Parkerville road south of West Chester is very private and winds from just below the Pocopson Circle off Route 52 to Route 926 along the way to Longwood Gardens. Easy commute to West Chester, Wilmington and even Philadelphia. Located in the award-winning Unionville-Chadds Ford School District. Stucco has been inspected, remediated and certified as complete by Environtech Building Consultants, Ltd (EnvironSpec). Home inspection report available upon request.
