Description for 453 Bayard Road Kennett Square, PA 19348
Saying 453 Bayard Rd is a Historical gem of a property would be the understatement of the century! More affectionately known as the "Flower Farm"-The deed for this property can be tracked all the way back to William Penn in the 1700's-when it was a 515 acre parcel. Then granted to Joseph Pennock another famous name in KSQ-in 1701. The history since is so rich with influential names, that we encourage any potential buyer to please reach out for more information with the listing agent. We have an entire binder of info from the historical society we would love to share. It is believed reviewing the 1850 census the first structure on this tract of land was erected in the 1840's by Thomas Marshall Jr. for his bride- a widow Elizabeth Plankinton Sinclair. Thomas who was a Quaker was "read out of meeting" for his transgression-but love overcame and he created this beautiful historical property standing today. Built with hornblende stone from a quarry on Hillendale Rd-the exterior of this home is timeless and breathtaking. The home sits atop the hill with miraculous views, and overlooks the massive 3story barn. It is worth noting the barn has had significant utility & structural upgrades. The barn was in the process of being finished for livable space by the current owner. The best way to describe the home would be once you walk inside you take magical step back in time-to incredible detailed craftsmanship. Once in the "old part of House" you can enjoy 3 stories of living, 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and a half bath. The loft/4th bedroom all the way upstairs features it's own full bath and has amazing views of the property. The old part of the house is over 4000 plus sqft of living space and has history tucked around every corner. All the systems have been updated to today standards, including a new electrical panel, and hvac. In the study and old kitchen downstairs you can cross over into the 4000 plus sqft new addition portion of the property. From the old house walk into the family room and massive kitchen- with 20ft plus ceilings with Tremendous detail. Off the Kitchen there is a walkway overlooking the soon to be courtyard- that leads back to the master suite. New 50 yr shingle roof, new roof on the barn, geothermal HVAC systems. Radiant heat floors in the entire master bed and bathroom. This property truly has it all. Historically significant for sure, with new world amenities. Buy the two lots for sale connected & the acreage would be 10+. "As is" sale.
