$12,900,000 Chadds Ford Equestrian Estate
If you happened to reinvest in the market right before Black Friday, you may be looking for a place to reinvent yourself as a country gentleman. Look no further than this Anglophile’s dream come true, where the natural beauty of the Brandywine Valley mixes with the elegance of Mr. Darcy’s Pemberley, and a touch of Gatsby-esque fancy. You can bring the family, the help, steamer trunks, and the livery. Or if you are relocating after that big lottery win, move in alone and get the trappings new. Henry Higgins is available to teach you the King’s English, but you might be better suited finding Gouverneur Cadwalader in this neighborhood. . .
From Patterson Schwartz: Just 30 miles west of Philadelphia, 41.5 acres in the rolling hills of Wyeth country. This equestrian estate is a piece of England that has been captured in the landscape of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. The success of the six-year-long project can be measured by the view of the house seeming to rise from the land on the long approach, by the 300-year-old slate roofing tiles, the stonework guided by English masons, the insulated leaded-glass windows that marry modern technology to ancient custom, & by the elegant scale & proportion of rooms that manage to combine inviting warmth, contemporary comfort & historic English tradition. This house is also a marvel of engineering & technology, with mechanical systems sized to accommodate a small hotel that introduce energy efficiency to a 17th century environment. Also included are the in-ground pool, pool house, stables with 12 stalls, carriage barn, tenant house & beautiful English gardens. Unlimited riding across hundreds of acres with access to the Brandywine River.
