A truly historic, very secluded, Chester County, Pennsylvania fieldstone farmhouse, built circa 1789, called Feather Hill Farm, consisting of three separately-deeded parcels, is up for sale for the first time in nearly 50 years. This absolutely lovely property consists of a 3 3/4 story bank stone farmhouse, 18.5 acres and its 30″ X 40″, 2-story frame bank barn. It is so secluded that many residents in its vicinity have never been aware of its presence. You will drive up the long lane to the farmhouse and cross two streams. The second stream comes from a spring, which is contained in a springhouse with a Peach Bottom slate roof, from which the house gets its water. It is painted in the same color as the house. You”ll continue your drive up the lane toward the farmhouse and you will note that both of its porches, its window frames, its shutters and blinds and all trim are painted in the historic color of “English Red”. This is exactly the same color that was used on Washington’s Headquarters on the Brandywine when it was being restored. The face of Feather Hill Farm reflects the beauty of all four seasons as you can see from the photographs included here. Each season brings magic and grace to this property. If you visit the charming 231 year-old farmhouse in the spring, you will be greeted by a kaleidoscope of colors as you travel down the long, curved, gravel lane. Flowers abound! Your eyes will see and be overwhelmed, by the purples and blues of thousands of wild crocuses and pure white wild snowbells that are arrayed across the lawns of the house, as well as the thousands of daffodils (approx. 5,000) on both sides of the gravel lane, behind and alongside the barn and elsewhere. There are colors of pink, apricot, peach, salmon and coral. There are large- and small-cupped varieties (more than 350), all from the famous flower producer Van Engelen. When you park your car, if you are lucky enough to arrive on or around 18 April, the very rare 100 year-old Saucer Magnolia tree, tucked carefully along the east end of the house’s porches, and next to the stone of the garage for protection, will be in full bloom. She brandishes her 5′ flowers of deep crimson, carmine pink and white, almost without exception, on that date. Truly, her array of thousands of flowers is absolutely breathtaking. When you walk up the centuries-old brick walkway to the house’s front door, you will notice on either side of the front walkway, hundreds of “Golden Echo” daffodils that cheerily say, “Welcome”! As you pass through the front door, you will enter the kitchen with its massive chestnut beams overhead and its radiant heat floor using centuries-old bricks. Each of the floor’s bricks is nearly 4″ thick and weighs nearly 10 lbs. You will note on your right, the massive “walk-in” fireplace with its bona fide 18th century utensils, trammels, andirons and crane. The handmade cabinetry is solid cherry, accentuated by the custom 18-tile, hand-painted Feather Hill Farm backsplash. You will then climb the stairs to Feather Hill Farm’s gorgeous dining room and its adjacent living room. As you enter the dining room with its formal fireplace, you will be struck by the incredible 5-arm brass candle burning chandelier and its hand-blown shades hanging from the ceiling. It is an exact replica of a stolen original Independence Hall chandelier recast for the Bicentennial in 1976. It is complimented by two double-arm replica sconces on the wall opposite the fireplace. You will climb the dining room stairs to the three charming bedrooms located on the 3rd floor, followed by an ascent to the two rooms on the 4th floor. Each of the rooms visited on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors is painted in historic colors. You will now go outside to see the barn, the mature apple and peach orchard and the three vegetable garden areas. In addition, you will have the chance to walk the property’s well-marked boundaries over its rolling, beautiful terrain. Buy it now before it’s gone!
