    Description

    Located in the heart of historical Chester Springs, "The Roost" is set on 24.3 bucolic acres of breathtaking grounds and views, under Act 319, with low taxes and no historic restrictions. It offers a manageable, well-maintained farmette, serving perfectly as either a permanent residence or a peaceful Country retreat, close to all that the Philadelphia area has to offer. Adjacent to the 140-acre Yellow Springs Preserve, it is also under Conservation Easement with the Natural Lands Trust and is surrounded by 500 pristine acres of open preserved land, perfect for access to miles of equestrian and foot trails. Beautifully updated by the long-time owner, the property features the updated 4 bedroom, 3.2 bath Stone Farmhouse with original attached Summer Kitchen and indoor pool, an expansive detached 6-car garage, wonderful stone Bank Barn with 10 rentable horse stalls, large equipment room and expansive party/loft space, a sizable riding ring and 3 fenced pastures. The charming main residence offers an open front porch, entry foyer with formal Powder Room and access to gas fireside Living Room with built-ins, corner cabinet & decorative moldings, formal Dining Room with classic built-ins and decorative moldings, Bright Family Room/Sun/Family Room, Breakfast room, and updated Kitchen with granite tops and stainless double under-mounted sink, Mud Room, Laundry Room and original "Vogel" closet. Additional first floor features include a recently added Entertainment Room with a 40'x18' built-in pool, ample seating for casual dining, a changing room, powder room, storage/mechanical access and entrance to the perfectly restored original Summer Kitchen. The Formal Center Hall staircase leads up to the 2nd floor complete with Master Bedroom, 3 additional spacious bedrooms, updated Hall Bathroom, Jack and Jill Bathroom and bright office with private views and the open staircase to the 3rd floor leads to a spacious multipurpose room with pool table, wood beams and cedar closet. A rare find and exceptional value with the original working 2-story Spring House providing water for the property, the lovely pond and fountain. A whole house generator plus propane heating with central air provide comfort and peace of mind year-round. A gem in an incredible location.
