Once Upon a Time, English Emigrants, comprised mainly of Millwrights, Masons, and Farmers of Quaker Faith, dreamed of owning land in a Country where they were free to practice their religion, carry on Family Traditions, and escape the oppressive rules that Charles II imposed. Along came William Penn and his "Great Experiment" offering newly-granted land in Pennsylvania for a pittance!! Setting sail on the Ship "Welcome" in 1682, Penn landed near a site now called Philadelphia. Purchasing large parcels up the Delaware from Chester, the new arrivals banded together and began building "homesteads" like this one -- The Cloud-Hewes-Pierce House!! Serenely sitting on 2.008 Picture-Perfect Acres, this Colonial Charmer will Capture Your Heart!! The Main Manor/Farmhouse needs some major updates and awaits your ideas, but offers charm galore and much more!! The Beautiful Brick Roofed Veranda, adorned by Colonial Coach Lights welcomes you! Stepping inside, Sunlight is streaming through the Beautiful Bow Windows onto the Heavenly Hardwood and Brazilian Cherry Floors! Spend chilly Fall and Winter nights in front of the Fabulous Fieldstone Fireplace in the Light and Lovely Living Room. "Host The Holidays" in the Gorgeous Gathering/Dining Room Showcased by a Fantastic Fieldstone Wall, Pegged Hardwood Floors, and a Dynamite Full-Wall Dutch Cupboard. A Table for 20 is not a problem!! A Resplendent Remodeled Kitchen with Exposed Beam Ceiling boasts a 2-tier Breakfast Bar, Gleaming Granite Counters, Brazilian Cherry Floor, Oversized UnderMount Sink and Updated Appliances. Generous-Sized Family Room has Sliders to a Wraparound Deck and Views to die for!! The Beautiful Barn/Lodge is a Colonial "Classic", currently housing two 1-BR Apartments replete with Lots of Living Space, Fireplace, Kitchen and Bath. This "Gem" is Zoned as a Legal 2-Unit Rental. Monthly income from Tenants on Month-To-Month Leases is $1,750. The Barn would make ideal Guest Quarters, In-Law Suite(s) or what about that Teen who will be moving back in after College Graduation?????? It is also a Great Place to Live while you are doing all those remodels in the Main Manor House. Sure it is going to cost you a "pretty penny", but this property has all the Right Ingredients of a Town & Country Estate!! Not to mention you are mere Minutes from Every Major Route, 35 Minutes to Airport and Center City, and in a Blue-Ribbon School System!! The property location is totally superb, and proximate to all the Arts and Culture the Brandywine Valley has to offer from Winterthur to Longwood Gardens, Darlington Art Center, Booth's "Organic" and Produce Market, and Chaddsford and tons of other area wineries. The expansive Concord Township Park and Walking Trails is even within walking distance. Want to Own a Piece of History and Have Your Own "Serene Sanctuary"??? Don't miss this one!!
