This private location is immersed in nature and offers a resort-style retreat from the large nearby hubs. Follow the private drive to the security gate and then wind your way down the long driveway to this impressive stone Colonial home. Enter through the front door into the classic foyer. Immediately notice the wide-plank wood floors that run throughout the first floor. The tall ceilings, paneled walls and classic fixtures make this 14 year old home feel much older. The formal dining room and formal living room, both with gas fireplaces, flank the grand main staircase. Head straight back to find a loggia running the length of the home with walls of windows and heated brick flooring. To the left find the private library with wood paneling, gas fireplace and access to a private patio as well as the formal powder room. Also find a main floor suite. Follow the loggia in the other direction to find the custom Chef’s kitchen with high-end finishes, Sub-Zero fridge and freezer, soapstone counters and custom sink, 6-burner Viking range, and large butcher-block island. A butler’s pantry includes a wet bar/coffee bar area with wine fridge connecting to the formal dining room through hidden door. Off of the kitchen find the comfortable family room with built-ins, fireplace and exposed beams. Continue through French doors to the screened porch with fireplace overlooking the serene grounds. A sunroom, small office and mudroom with laundry & powder room complete the main floor. Up either of 3 staircases find the luxurious master suite with his & hers closets with shelving systems, sitting room with corner fireplace and gorgeous marble bath with his & hers vanities, soaking tub, walk-in shower, towel warmer & heated floors. Continue down the hall to find 3 more guest suites and laundry room. A large office sits at the end of the hall with coffee bar including fridge and powder room. This space can be accessed from a private staircase with main floor entry for in-home office options. A large bonus room sits above the attached 3-car garage. The stunning main staircase continues to a 3rd level with unfinished space providing endless options. The finished lower level features sitting area, game room, theater with tiered seating and audio/visual equipment, wine room, gym and powder room. An abundance of unfinished space provides plenty of storage. The rear tiered patio leads to the heated pool and pool house with powder room, dressing room and outdoor shower. A detached 3 car garage has unfinished space above that could be made into an apartment. All of this in the award-winning Unionville Chadds-Ford school district and close proximity to Wilmington and Philadelphia.
