Preserved with historic character, this lovely home has a wonderful, unique blend of old charm, yet designed with all the modern conveniences and energy conservation features for today's lifestyle. When completed it was new construction within the framework of period Chester County farmhouse. For their efforts, Megill Homes was awarded the 2011 Pyramid Award for Builder of the Year for the Best Residential Renovation in the region. The home was also chosen to be on the Chadds Ford Historical Society's 2013 Candlelight Tour. Known as the Joseph Barnard House (c. 1790's), one will experience the old world charm as you drive up the tree lined drive to this brick and stucco (over stone) farmhouse. As you enter the home you will immediately appreciate the random width floors and deep window sills. The inviting and spacious living room has 12 over 12 windows and original fireplace. To address the need for modern conveniences, an absolute and complete renovation was completed throughout the home in 2010. It included a gourmet kitchen complete with all Viking appliances (six burner stove and double door refrigerator) high-end cabinetry, center island, granite counters and pantry. A first floor powder room and laundry/mudroom was also added and is conveniently attached to the two car garage. On the second floor, special attention was given to the master bedroom featuring large windows, a walk-in closet and a designer master bath. There are 2 additional bedrooms and a guest bath featuring its own designer components. The walk-up attic could be considered if additional storage space and potential living space is desired. As everyone is energy conscious today, special attention was taken during the renovations to include ALL NEW Anderson windows, walls, roof, insulation (R-15 factor), lighting and propane HVAC system. The energy efficiency of the systems replacement and renovation is enjoyed through very, very low monthly utilities. Outside, one can enjoy the spring season on either the front covered brick-paved porch or the rear patio overlooking the beautifully, professionally landscaped yard with specimen plantings consisting of just over an acre set among the Pocopson Creek Community. It is across the street from the newly preserved local landmark, Barnard's Orchards and very near the ChesLen Preserve. Conveniently located in top ranked Unionville Chadds Ford School District, close to major arteries, work centers and shopping. A warm,charming home to see!
