Property Description for 1421 BALTIMORE PIKE, CHADDS FORD PA 19317

Elegance, grandeur and history ~ this home has it all. Situated on 3.6 acres and built by Samuel Painter in 1856, this Italianate style of an American Bracketed Villa has long been a part of Chadds Ford history. Bordering Brandywine Battlefield Park and known as "Painters Folly", it was the home of Howard Pyle, founder of the Brandywine School of Art where he mentored N.C. Wyeth and many others. It was both the subject of a number of Andrew Wyeth paintings and a workspace for him. This spectacular three story home is stucco over stone exterior walls more than a foot thick with a wraparound porch framed with imported French trellis work. The rooms of the main level are 12 feet tall and the second and third stories are 10 feet tall with large windows illuminating every room. Wide, random width hardwood floors throughout most of the house and a grand central staircase are among many of the features of this special home. You will marvel at the original millwork, plaster moldings and paneled doors, including grand arched pocket doors between the living room and dining room. The 16 original fireplaces are still there with three currently in use. There is a large eat-in main kitchen and a second "summer kitchen" that doubles as a first floor laundry. There is a full basement and a partial sub-basement below that. Topping off this special home is 12' x 8' cupola with windows on all sides offering wonderful views of the surrounding area. This was one of Andrew Wyeth's favored work spaces. There is a detached banked carriage house with a full kitchen, great room, bedroom and full bath, perfect for an in-law or au-pair home. The lower level of the carriage house consists of garage spaces, a former ice house and shed. The grounds include an in-ground pool, currently not in use, lovely gardens and a circular driveway. Located in the award winning Unionville Chadds Ford School District, this wonderful home is ready for you to become part of its' history.
