Description for 1175 Birmingham Road West Chester, PA 19382
Rarely does a property with the great historical significance of Fair Meadow Farm come on the market! On September 11, 1777, the opening shots of the Battle of the Brandywine were fired from this farm at the Continental Army centered around the Birmingham Friends Meeting. Now set on 28.5 acres, the farm features a seven bedroom, four full and two half bath serpentine home, a large stone Bank Barn, four car garage, greenhouse, several outbuildings, pool, magnificent trees, and beautiful gardens. The oldest section of the home dates to 1740 with later 1802 and 1937 additions. Highlights of the home include: the spacious Living Room was with two fireplaces, one of which was a deep cooking fireplace with the original crane; the large Dining Room; the Library, Office, and elegant Foyer; the Waterbury Designs cabinets in the pantry and high-end Kitchen; and the large Master Suite with a Sitting Room with plenty of book shelving (could be an additional bedroom or nursery), a Master Bedroom, Dressing Area, and Full Bath - another Waterbury Design creation! Three additional bedrooms (one with an en-suite bath) plus a Hall Bath on the second level and a further three bedrooms, a play area, and a beautiful full Bath on the third level complete the home. Heating is provided by a high efficiency furnace (3 zones) and the home is fully air conditioned (4 zones). The magnificent serpentine bank barn (60'x40') houses numerous stalls, a heated bathroom, and a 20'x40' heated/air conditioned workshop. Other farm amenities include: a Greenhouse (1996) with automatic venting and cooling; a "Playhouse" all-purpose building with a seasonal bathroom and running water; a four car Garage that was the original Carriage House; a lovely heated swimming pool (2008) that is beautifully and privately set; and a picturesque 5/8 acre spring fed pond on the east side of the house. The property is blessed with a magnificent assortment of mature specimen trees including a 300 year old sycamore near the pond. Adding to all this are private, restful places to sit and relax with a book and soak in the beauty of this peaceful country oasis. Highly ranked Unionville Schools, convenient to Wilmington and the Route 202 corridor, and 30 minutes to the Philadelphia Airport - this property has it all! If you are looking for a stellar, historically significant property that has been well loved, look no further than Fair Meadow Farm.
