Versatile Opportunity Nestled among peaceful countryside views and open farmlands, this charming three-story red brick Federal home sits on 11-plus acres, featuring a historic barn, garage, twin three-story rental units and three-bay garage. Ideally situated in London Grove Village, West Marlborough Township, and within the Unionville Chadds-Ford School District, this property not only offers historical charm but also proximity to the borough of Kennett Square, recent upgrades, and unique opportunities. The main residence, a Federal-era gem, includes three bathrooms, two bedrooms, a mudroom, dining room, living room, a new walk-in closet, and a full attic. The well-equipped kitchen features stainless fixtures and appliances, a large oven, and an electric ceramic stove top. The wood-burning stove with updated chimney, exposed beams, and era-specific glass transoms over dining room doors add character and warmth to the living spaces. Explore the rich history within the property, including old-fashioned elements like an icebox, beehive oven, original hardware, and textured decorative paint using feathers. A convenient ½ bath with a pedestal sink is found on the first floor, while the second floor hosts two full baths, including a clawfoot bathtub and tongue-and-groove wainscoting. While rooted in the past, the property is equipped with modern amenities, such as a new well and outdoor hydrant drilled and installed in January 2023, a reverse osmosis water system, up-to-date electric, and an oil-burning furnace replaced in 2022 in the unfinished basement linked to steam radiators. Period features, such as marble exterior windowsills, original wood floors on the second and third floors, and an authentic spiral staircase, add interest. Bright bay windows on the east side of the house invite beautiful sunrises, natural light, and picturesque views indoors. The original west-facing side porch provides an exterior seating area with beautiful sunset views. The neighboring twin house features two dwellings, each with two bedrooms, one full bath, a kitchen, a comfortable living area, and a basement. This presents a great rental opportunity, making it an income-generating asset. Spanning 11-plus acres, the property boasts a picturesque circa 1820 post-and-beam barn with an attached garage and new electric. It includes an agricultural pasture suitable for grazing horses and a mature 4-acre wood lot with hardwoods, native plants, and walking trails. On the corner of Newark & Street Roads is a three-bay garage for additional storage or rental potential. London Grove Village falls under the Village Residential Zone (R-1), as per West Marlborough Township zoning documents. Additionally, the property is enrolled in Act 319, providing tax benefits for qualifying properties spanning over 10 acres. This versatile space seamlessly blends historical charm with modern functionality, making it a rare investment. By appointment only, 24 hour notice for showings.
