Description

It is unprecedented when a property like no other becomes available. Crowning a hill with commanding views of Chateau Country, this impeccable 5 bedroom, 5 full and 4 half bath home in Greenville has all the qualities of a magnificent English manor. Built entirely of stone, it complements the Brandywine Valley landscape. Although it looks as though it~s occupied for the same idyllic spot for generations, it is only nine years old. The entire 8.5-acre property is fenced and has a multi-zoned irrigation system. It provides stunning long vista views in every direction. Not only is it next to Winterthur Museum, which occupies 1,000 acres, but it also borders conserved land. Like any modern home, this residence has an open flow for elegant entertaining while also providing space for rest, relaxation and fun. Throughout the home, the attention to detail is unparalleled through top-of-the-line finishes and appliances and is especially evident in the Joanne Hudson designed gourmet kitchen, which includes high-grade Italian granite countertops, travertine marble floors and espresso bar. Relax on the sprawling terrace overlooking the sparkling pool surrounded by a travertine patio and pool house with kitchen and full bath. In addition to the main home, there is a one-bedroom apartment above the freestanding three-car garage and a 3 bed, 2 bath gatehouse for family and friends. Throughout the property, there are state-of-the-art systems. The main house has seven-zone geothermal heating, whole-house humidification system. Additional features include elevator, accessing all floors, variegated slate roof, 11 fireplaces, 3 wells, 2 septic systems. Lower level is accented with stone from property and includes 2000+ bottle wine cellar and bowling alley. And while the estate is located in the heart of the bucolic Brandywine Valley, it~s minutes from downtown Wilmington and Philadelphia and major transportation hubs.
