The "Barn at the Knoll" is a 1896 custom converted barn on the edge of downtown West Chester! The best of both worlds, whether it be a short jaunt into town or relaxing in seclusion at home. The grounds, deck and screened in porch offer plenty of opportunities to entertain and enjoy. Hot tubbing under the winter sky, family safely playing in the half acre fenced yard or grilling on the deck. Truly a Town & Country Experience. You will find an incredible amount of old world charm, modern amenities and thoughtful design. Wide planked wood floors, barn beams, wood burning stoves and an elegant fire place mantel are just a few of the delights that lend to the beauty of 'this old house'. The contemporary kitchen is flanked by concrete countertops, stainless steel appliances and ample storage. The heart of the kitchen is the 'Piece de Resistance'...an island topped with a select slab of granite supported by stainless steel cabinetry. While cooking in the kitchen one can view the sitting area, the dining room, the breakfast room, the parlor and the luscious greenery in and around the fenced in yard. The master retreat is a few steps away. Here you will find custom lighting, built in shelving and french doors that lead to a spa-like oasis. Enter the master bath with it's restored stone walls, open shower, heated travertine floor and an antique claw foot tub. The charm continues upstairs with a full bath & 2 fab. bedrooms...vaulted ceilings, skylights and plenty of storage. The In-Law Suite boasts white washed stone walls, beams, tile floors, full bath & kitchenette. Enter from the inside or the outside... which brings you onto a sweet little secluded deck. Light streams in through the french doors and the cold is kept at bay by original solid wood carriage door shutters. This room is quite versatile and can be used as a fourth bedroom, an office, a man cave, playroom, studio or nanny's quarters. The ground level workshop has 3 outside entrances (dutch doors originally used for the cows), full of light and space. The courtyard is surrounded by old stone walls and a original cow bell. An old cow trough remains as a reminder of the barn's history. The courtyard is well suited for parking, plenty of space and the shed roof shields vehicles from the weather. Living in a converted barn is without exception a lifestyle full of wide open space and history. We invite you to come have a look for yourself!
