Description

1477 Yellow Springs Road is a classic fieldstone Chester County Farmhouse with Barn on 2.2 lush acres across from West Pikeland’s Pine Creek Park, a park containing 70 acres with playground, nature trails, a creek & sports fields. This circa 1800, 5Bay structure & barn was a part of the John Krauser Grist Mill in the 19th century (note the Mill & tenant house across the road). The house is in late Federal style with frieze-band windows & earthy palette, which accentuates the variegated rustic fieldstone. Over 3,000 sf with 5 Bedrooms & 3.5 bathrooms along with gardens & inground pool.  A class 2 historic resource with the Township, this is a property which gains the admiration of all who pass by this beautiful part of Chester Springs! Notice the symmetrical façade with wood windows, shutters & a grand main porch entrance with matching benches & transom windows over the doors.  The elegant interior reveals well crafted original architectural features & hardwood floors on the main level. There is a formal LR with elegant fireplace, FR or DR with two entrances to the Kitchen, which has been sympathetically updated with Walk-in fireplace, exposed stone wall, new wood cabinets, soapstone counter-tops, beamed ceilings, brick breakfast room/sunroom, pantry with staircase to the 2nd floor access & door to the classic rear brick patio.  The rear stone walled patio is a remarkable space for enjoying an evening barbeque & entertaining. A Powder Room under the stairs completes this level. The finely crafted staircase leads to the spacious second floor, which has 3 bedrooms & two full Baths. The 3rd Floor offers 2 Bedrooms, full Bath & Laundry hook up.  Some of these rooms could be used for office/den or other uses.  There is a Full Basement with separate entrance & Laundry Room. There is Central Air & updated utilities, not typically found in homes of this vintage. There is a two car Garage & Bank Barn, which is ideal for collecting or, with some vision, a potential party space. The lower Barn level is heated for a workspace. The grounds are exceptional with a variety of trees, flowering bushes & perennials.  The side yard is flat with a playhouse/workshed/garden shed. There are stone steps leading up the rear yard to the inground pool & screened in pool house with open field beyond.  Much of the property is wooded & the region has many protected areas nearby, such as Binky Lee Preserve, Pine Creek Park & Pickering Creek Trails. A nature lovers paradise to experience wildlife  & the cultural heritage of this part of Chester County.  Downingtown Schools, easy access to routes 113, 100, turnpike, 30, 202 & 76 for shopping and civic amenities in Phoenixville, Kimberton, Exton, King of Prussia & West Chester!  Its long time owners have lovingly maintained & updated this fine home during their ownership. Now is your chance to take ownership of this historic gem & become a curator of our local priceless heritage!
