Property Description

In the epicenter of historic Chadds Ford, a circa 1890 Meeting House, thoughtfully renovated and masterfully expanded is perched on the banks of Karver Lake. Embracing its 7-acre water front setting, the architectural heritage of the historic home is echoed in character with expansive Archer-Buchanan designed additions. With respect to its Georgian architectural vernacular but ushering in a lightened style and spacious aesthetic, all-important views are oriented toward the lake. The stone of the original structure was carefully matched for use on the front facades and in the hardscape walls that frame the lawns. Natural light floods the foyer and grand staircase. Richly stained reclaimed white oak floors blanket main and upper levels, and provide classic contrast to the warm, neutral pallet. Paneled doors paired with meticulously reproduced and repurposed historical hardware punctuate every space with weight and scale amplified by 10' ceilings. Working from home takes on a delightfully new meaning in the pair of offices off the main entrance, or study on 2nd level. Maintaining the homes historical integrity, the gathering space opposite the offices features two original fireplaces, coffered ceilings and casually elegant dining. Beyond, an original stone wall and three window walls provide a sunny retreat for relaxation, home school or play. The dramatic heart of the home is carefully appointed with richly grained custom cabinetry and built-in fine appliances, topped with subtle stone and wood counters. French doors invite outside living with water front ringside seats to the changing seasons. The family friendly space with both banquette and bar stool seating spills into the comfortable family room with plenty of space for family and friends to sprawl. Stone fireplace, carved mantle and built-in cabinets that compliment those in the kitchen create architectural interest and charm. Main floor mudroom with built-in cubbies, laundry with copper potting sink, walk in pantry, walk in storage closet and two well appointed powder rooms fulfill every wish list and serve every need. Up the back stairs, the master suite offers the amenities and understated elegance of a four star hotel. Private walk in closets, bathroom accommodations for two take the amenities to a higher level, and tucked into the hallways a shoe closet, linen closet, suitcase closet and additional storage are skillfully arranged. Family and guests are well served in three additional spacious bedrooms, en suite. In the original wing of the second floor, the second laundry, and au pair suite offer private accommodations and sitting room. Blending modern convenience and old world charm, the third floor plays host to two additional bedrooms, and bath, as well as bonus finished spaces. The daylight lower level has a fully appointed fitness suite, highlighted by a steam shower and separate sauna. A kitchenette adds service to the lounge area, craft space & play room. An accessory three bay carriage house enhances the integral two-car garage with ample additional storage for garden equipment. Bespoke details celebrate the medley of craftsmen enlisted for the lake house. And while quality is evident at every turn, the comfort and convenience of state of the art mechanicals add to the litany of attributes this property has to offer.
