Property Description

Step into this landmark home in the heart of Brandywine Hundred and be impressed at its size, awed by its serenity and captivated by its history. The heart of this home dates to 1799 as the Pennrose Talley farmhouse. It was expanded by renowned architect and artist Dana Pyle Jr, who designed local neighborhoods including Surrey Park and Foulk Woods. As you drive through the gateway you're taken by the charming beauty of the home and one acre of lush gardens. Inside, Colonial touches abound including random-width pegged hardwood floors, wainscoting and washed paint finishes. The first floor provides ample living spaces and a wonderful flow for entertaining. It features a formal dining room and living room with fireplace leading to an expansive sunroom with Anderson windows and a gorgeous stone floor. Before retiring to the sitting room with gas fireplace and beamed ceiling, escape to the octagonal hot tub room with peaceful views of the gardens. The updated kitchen features two double sinks, granite counters, a custom-built island and gas cooking. The breakfast area with gas fireplace opens into a cozy family room and the elevator to the master suite. The first floor is completed with two powder rooms and a walk-in pantry with laundry. The master suite features a beautiful fireplace (non-functioning) and a split bathroom with separate vanities and walk-in closets joined by a walk-in shower. The second floor continues to three more bedrooms (one en-suite), a hall bath and a spacious office leading down to the sunroom. The third floor finishes the main home with an en-suite fifth bedroom. Connected to the house is a 3.5 car garage with ample storage and a colonial-style carriage house awaiting your touches. The gardens are an oasis with a white picket fence, brick patio, mature trees and gazebo overlooking the historic barn ruins. The home features a new tar roof above the sunroom (2020) and updated multi-zone HVAC with 3 furnaces (2019, 2014, 2012) and two central A/C zones (2019 and 2006-est). A pre-listing home inspection is available for your reference. With only three families in this home's history, it is ready to write the next chapter with you. Welcome home!
