Welcome to this exquisite French chateau-style home nestled amidst preserved open space in Chadds Ford. Designed by renowned architect, Jack Arnold, this custom home offers old-world charm combined with many modern amenities and updates. As you pass through the stone gates you enter a serene retreat set on three acres preserved under an easement with the Brandywine Conservancy. You will be charmed by the elegance of the home and the new cedar shake and copper roof (2020). Entering the foyer notice the beautifully inlaid hardwood floors, archways and design details reflecting the custom renovation of the main living areas and kitchen in 2016. To your right is the formal dining room that impresses with its beamed ceiling and stunning picture window. Passing into the kitchen you'll appreciate the beautiful white cabinetry and mill work, quartz counters, farmhouse sink and stainless Bosch and Sub-Zero appliances. The kitchen opens into the cathedral-style living room with exposed beams, built-in bookcases and gas fireplace. Four arched French doors (2020) lead onto front and rear patios with peaceful views and manicured gardens. Adjacent to the kitchen is a skylit breakfast room and a curved staircase leading to the guest suite. From the breakfast room we enter the formal sitting room augmented with a stately Gothic-style stone fireplace (gas). Returning to the foyer you pass through French doors to enter the master suite, which has a private garden patio, extensive walk-in closet and spa-like bathroom with soaking tub and plantation shutters. The main level is completed with a renovated mudroom and laundry leading to the 2-car garage. Upstairs enter two generous-sized bedrooms with hardwood floors joined by a renovated bathroom. Off of one of the bedrooms is a large bonus room complete with built-in bookcases and a lovely reading window. On the other side of the foyer is the fourth bedroom with en-suite full bathroom. On the lower level is an expansive living area with a kitchenette accented with silk shantung wallpaper. The lower level is completed with a fitness studio, yoga room/office and full bathroom. Home features and recent updates include: 4 Zone HVAC with 3 main systems replaced in 2019, Freshly painted exterior (2020), Generac generator, whole house water filtration system, tankless Rinnai water heater, exterior LED lighting (2020), whole home entertainment system and new garage doors (2020). A stucco inspection was completed in 2020, and the report is available for your reference. This gracious home is an oasis and captures the spirit of why the Brandywine Valley is known as Chateau Country.
