Welcome to Yew Tree Cottage, originally built in 1752, with two bedrooms, two and a half baths, with all the modern amenities any discerning homeowner would love. This gorgeous stone property with its bright cedar roof, sits perched atop a gently sloping hill, just off Route 162, with 3 acres of magnificent unobstructed country views. The fenced-in property is truly a nature lover's paradise , carefully designed by its current owner, a landscape designer, with flower beds and perennial gardens. Renovated in 2018, the house was thoughtfully re-modelled with careful consideration of its unique historic features with new heating, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, windows, doors, on-site septic and on-site private well. Walk into the kitchen with high ceilings and original beams, white Shaker cabinets, soapstone countertops, an AGA stove and stainless steel appliances. Original or reclaimed wood flooring exists throughout. Step into the house?s center with a slate floored dining room (original deep stone well sits below a plexiglass frame), a large fireplace and an open office area. To your right, a living room with soaring ceilings, an accent stone wall, large new windows looking out onto the yard, and a modern gas fireplace beckon. To your left you?ll see a formal entranceway and large mudroom. In the original section of the home, you?ll find a den with original built-in bookcase, a cozy fireplace, complete with original cooking hardware, a convenient powder room, the main bedroom (with gas fireplace and built-in bookcases) and en-suite bathroom designed with porcelain tile, radiant floors, and a stacked washer/dryer. Upstairs you?ll walk into a study with amazing wood tulip poplar floors and an accent stone wall, with an inviting second bedroom and en-suite bathroom with radiant porcelain floors and a shower sharing the space. Back downstairs, walk out onto a sunny fieldstone patio and step down past the raised vegetable boxes towards the vast lawn, a place of tranquility with nothing but the sounds of dozens of birds and other wildlife. Out front, you?ll see a two-car garage with modernized remote doors, a large wood shop and loft space above. Located one mile from the historical town of Marshalton and six miles from West Chester Borough, where you?ll experience great shopping and a multitude of excellent restaurants. Fabulous local hikes at Stroud?s Preserve and a short drive or bike ride to Northbrook for canoeing excursions down the Brandywine River. This truly unique and amazing property awaits the stewardship of its next special Buyer.
