Welcome to Beagle Hill Farm, where country living is both exhilarating and luxurious in this spectacular farmhouse estate home. The original was built in 1821 with additions in the 1930~s and 1950~s. In 2005, new owners hired a Philadelphia and New York based architect, Christopher Tantillo, to blend the architecture together in a way that kept the historic nature intact. Modern features were introduced to the quaint farmhouse with the goal of creating a home that was comfortable and luxurious, but not ostentatious. The farmhouse is ideally sited on 14.81 glorious Chester County acres. A private lane takes you over a creek and past the fish filled pond to the main house and the Belgian block motor court. Upon entering the home, you are greeted by a large entrance hall, graced by a custom elliptical shaped staircase. The elegant moldings, custom millwork and architectural features arouse your expectations of what~s to come. The front-to-back living room has a gas fireplace, chair rails, random width hardwood floors and a wall of windows that bring the outdoor terrace and gardens into the room. The adjacent dining room has French doors to the patio and a dramatic black-and-white marble radiant heat floor. The gourmet kitchen features custom cabinetry, top of the line appliances, extra-large granite counters, both farmhouse and prep sinks and opens to the bright family room with fireplace and breakfast room with heated floors and magnificent garden views. The living spaces continue into the original 1800~s wing of the home, the current den, with large original cooking fireplace, deep and rounded window sills and refinished antique wood floors. The adjacent 1930~s addition has been transformed into a billiard room with exposed stone wall and leather floors. The hand-crafted elliptical staircase leads to the second-floor residence spaces with gorgeous wood floors throughout all of the 5-6 bedrooms. The master bedroom suite has vaulted ceilings, gas fireplace with slate surround and wood mantle, large walk-in closets, a stunning tiled master bath with jacuzzi tub, oversized steam shower with marble seat, separate lavatory and two separate vanities. The 1950~s wing encompasses two bedrooms (one currently used as an office) and a shared hall bath. The laundry room is also efficiently located on the second floor. Bedroom 4, overlooking the rear gardens, is equipped with an ensuite bath perfect for guests. Bedrooms 5-6 are a perfect 2-bedroom in-law or auPair suite with full bath. The finished lower level includes a 1300 bottle, wine cellar, decorated with a tile mosaic of one of the formal gardens, and a cork floored tasting room for sampling your collection. You can exercise in the rubber floored gym or grow and nurture specimen plantings in the garden growing room. The outdoors at Beagle Hill Farm are made for living and entertaining. A blue stone terrace runs the entire length of the back of the home allowing for access through multiple rooms. Most stone used to construct the beautiful walls and fireplace were gathered on the property during construction. The terrace was made for country living with many options; relaxing near the soothing fountains, in front of the two-story stone fireplace, or hosting a dinner party for friends and family. But the outdoor options are just beginning; dive into the huge blue salt water pool and relax in the bubbling spa; play a tennis match on the turf court or practice your basketball skills on the sports court. The 5-acre wild flower field is also sure to entertain; follow the meandering paths watching nature unfold throughout the seasons. The home has numerous outbuildings including a Bank Barn that houses a 4-car garage, 3 stall barn and caretaker~s cottage; a workin metal forge; pool cabana also a utility shed for the industrial-sized generator and pool equipment. This Chester County farmhouse estate is ready for its next story. Will you be in it?
