Property Description

COMING SOON: Welcome to the Edgeworth House. The datestone of this historic property is 1738 and the house was the second homestead built by the Brinton family between Dilworthtown and the Brandywine River. On September 11, 1777 it would have been in the path of the Battle of the Brandywine, where Cornwallis Troops attacked George Washington and the Continental Troops from the North. The property sits on 3 acres, with lovely gardens and backs on to a scenic valley. The old section of the house still has its 8 over 12 windows and broad plank floors, while the newer sections have been artfully done. The house has almost 5000 sqft and has been designed for entertaining. The front has two formal entrances, but everybody comes in through the kitchen in the back. The kitchen is the center of the house and has a two-story bank of windows and beautifully hand painted cabinets. The living room is a wide-open space with a working fireplace and French doors to the side patio. The original front dining room has hardwood floors and a corner fireplace. The adjacent ancient study has built-in shelves. The family room off the kitchen has both work and play areas, including an outdoor exit to the pool. The primary bedroom suite upstairs was built in 1950 and has a bedroom dressing area and private bath. The old section of the house has two bedrooms, one with a fireplace, and a shared bath. There is a 4th bedroom which looks out over the kitchen. The 3rd floor has one large open bedroom playroom and its own bath. Going downstairs, the basement has a private office and laundry room and open storage area. Outside there is a large English-Style bank barn which has three levels and is sound. The top level is for loading hay and storing equipment, while the middle level is spacious enough to have once served as an indoor basketball court. The lower level is split between pony stalls and a raw storage area. The property is located south of West Chester and above historic Chadds Ford within the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District. There is ready access to local highway corridors of routes 202, 100, 926 and Rt 1, as well as the Philadelphia Airport. It is within commuting distances to West Chester, Exton, Philadelphia and Wilmington. The area is well known for its cultural heritage, including the new Kennett Library, Brandywine River Museum, Longwood Gardens and Winterthur. Local restaurants include Hanks Place, the Gables, Brandywine Prime, Agave, and it is a quick ride to Kennett Square home of the Mushroom Festival.
