"Birchwood Farm" is the quintessential Chester County estate, with rarely found privacy and character. Set towards the center of the property at the heart of this 90 acre farm located in Pocopson Township is the historic "John Marshall House". This classic 6 bedroom, 4.1 bath Colonial was built in three different phases. The earliest phase of the house dates back to 1771 with the final section being completed in 1948. Throughout the years, its owners have retained many of the fine architectural details and features of homes commonly found throughout Chester County in the late 18th century. Six fireplaces, window & door trim, chair rail and wide plank floors are just some of the many original features of this home that are still present today. As you step away from the house and explore the beauty of the property, you will find that additional amenities of this wonderful farm include an 1800's bank barn with 14 stalls, an office and a one groom's apartment. There are numerous pastures, automatic waterers and several turnout sheds. Additionally, there are two tenant houses on the property, as well as a quarantine barn, equipment sheds, and a detached garage with shop. Most recently used as a working horse farm, this property has numerous possibilities, whether they be equestrian related, an agricultural-based business, or private estate - the possibilities are endless! The property is under a conservation easement with the Brandywine Conservancy and subdivision of up to 5 lots is permitted, as well as the construction of an Indoor Riding Arena and more - see agent for full details. Located conveniently to West Chester, King of Prussia, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Fair Hill, Lancaster, Harrisburg and only 1.5 hours from Baltimore and 2 hours from New York. This is the perfect opportunity for the Buyer in search of value, convenience and history.
