Quintessential privacy! Feather Hill Farm consists of THREE VERY SECLUDED SEPARATELY DEEDED PARCELS. This charming property has an historic 3½ story fieldstone farmhouse built circa 1789, a 30’ by 40’ two-story bank barn and a springhouse from which the farm gets its water, that sit on 18½ beautiful acres. The owner has meticulously restored the farmhouse during the past 47 years. An original brick walkway worn by the feet of two centuries of the house’s residents leads you to this warm and inviting, incredibly maintained home. As you enter the house, massive chestnut beams are overhead. Its radiant heat floor uses centuries-old paving bricks. On your right is the “walk-in” fireplace and crane. Its real 18th century very rare utensils, trammels and andirons, collected by the owner, will come with a full price offer. All kitchen cabinetry is handmade solid cherry. An 18-tile, hand-painted “Feather Hill Farm” backsplash is above the cooktop. The double oven, 4-burner cooktop with large griddle, are Thermidor. There is an Elkay commercial grade, oversize double-bowl sink with period Moen Waterhill faucets. There is a half bath on this floor. On the floor above is Feather Hill Farm’s gorgeous dining room, and its adjacent living room. The elegant dining room’s white plaster walls are striking against its “New England Red” paint color. It has a formal fireplace & an incredible hanging 5-arm brass candle burning chandelier with hand-blown shades. It is an exact match of a recast missing 1700s Independence Hall chandelier that had consisted of six chandeliers. Two double-arm replica sconces are across from it. All 3 will come with a full price offer. There are 3 cozy bedrooms on the 3rd floor. A newly redone full bathroom with a hand-painted sink of magnolia blossoms with Kohler’s Georges IV brass faucets. The vanity is an 18th century repurposed chest. There are two additional rooms on the 4th floor. All rooms on the 1st, 2nd & 3rd floors are painted in 18th century historic colors with Benjamin Moore’s high-end Satin Impervo. The 2nd, 3rd & 4th levels have beautifully refinished vintage random-width oak floors. Outside, you will marvel at the beauty of the colors in the fieldstone as you stand at the West side of the house as it vaults 40’ toward the sky. The owner painstakingly removed the stucco that encased it, and the front of the house, over a four-month period. He created a 3-color pointing mortar mix that artfully accentuates the colors of the fieldstone. He found vintage shutter hinges on the original window frames. Unrelenting, he found 1790s hinges to hang the exterior shutters and blinds made for all the windows on the West side and front of the house. The color of the shutters, the intricate double cornice below the main roof with its dental molding cut right into the cornice itself, and all the other painted millwork is historical. It is exactly the same color that was originally used on General Washington’s Headquarters along the Brandywine during the Revolutionary War. Ironically, it is called “British Red” The roof is exceptional! It is the original Peach Bottom Slate roof for the house which is acclaimed as the “finest slate in the world” because of its beauty and its ability to last for centuries. It is exactly the same slate that is on the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC. From February through May, the farm’s flowers are an artist’s canvas. The breathtaking 100-year-old Saucer Magnolia at the beginning of this listing brandishes her 5” blooms of pink & white with deep carmine throats almost without fail every April 18th. There is too much to tell about this beautiful property in its listing copy. Ask listing agent for a copy of the document The Story of Feather Hill Farm -232 Years of Love and Craftsmanship” to truly experience Feather Hill Farm
