Exceptional estate on 10+ wooded acres in Chadds Ford displays the pride of "Chateau Country" in the Brandywine Valley. This handsome home resembles an Old World manor, complete with an imposing Vermont stone fa~ade, a snooker room and a 2-story library with balcony accessed by a circular staircase, 20"-high coffered ceiling and rich wainscoting. The dramatic entrance hall, modeled after one in Venice, sports heated Italian marble floors and a butterfly staircase with wrought-iron spindles, leading to a second-floor balcony. With 13,000-sq.-feet of living space on 3 levels, this home features a warm yet sophisticated kitchen with Dacor range and built-in oven, butler"s pantry, and granite countertops. The kitchen adjoins a family room, which has a two-story vaulted ceiling, unique stone fireplace with stone shingles and access to two-tiered flagstone terrace overlooking lush, private grounds with a stream. All 7 bedrooms have bathrooms, including the owner"s suite, which also has a dressing room and door to the library. Private spa near the exercise room offers wet and dry sauna, hot tub and full bathroom. Lower level also holds a pub with a wet bar near the 11-seat home theater and 1,200-bottle wine room with stone walls and stone sink. Second-floor music room, complete with a mural of instruments, is great as a playroom or media room. The L-shaped garage, which wraps around a courtyard, can hold five cars and storage. Refined woodwork throughout includes hardwood floors milled from Vermont trees just for this home, crown molding, ornate mantles and ceilings and clever hidden door in the DR for serving supplies. Don"t miss the second-floor laundry room with space for two washers and two dryers or the walk-in attic with a raised dais and cedar closet. This property also includes a 2-bedroom guesthouse with pool, renovated kitchen and lovely sunroom plus a one-bedroom pool house with kitchen - use as a studio or place to relax and reflect! Ideally situated near Winterthur Museum and Longwood Gardens and three years in the making, this home is a perfectionist"s dream. Live the modern manor life in genteel Chester County, one of the most prized locations on the East Coast.
