B uilt from local bricks in 1810, this impeccably maintained Georgian-style house at Dill Farm is the centerpiece of a 10.1-acre estate, fabulous for parties or every-day quiet moments - all a short hop to shops & restaurants
of Kennett Square. With 10-foot ceilings, 5 fireplaces, abundant millwork & random-width hardwood floors throughout, the home was artfully & seamlessly expanded twice, in 1935 & 1995. Includes many of its original features, including the lock & hardware on the front door. Yet it’s been updated for the 21st century, with zoned heating & cooling, radiant heated floors in mudroom & family room & an attached 3-car garage. The Dining room, enhanced with wainscoting & fireplace, comfortably seats 10. The Family room, with floor-to-ceiling cabinets crafted by a local artisan, is open to the breakfast room. Kitchen is equipped for efficient entertaining with double wall ovens, an integrated fridge, Miele dishwasher & Gaggenau cooktop with pot filler. White custom cabinets & marble countertops reflect the home’s vintage charm. Lower level with high ceilings provides additional space for entertaining, including a game room with a fireplace & wood- paneled walls with bow-tie inserts, currently used as a billiards room. Behind the house, an expansive terrace is shaded by a massive cherry tree & defined by stunning stone walls built into the hillside, a feat of craftsmanship that would be hard to duplicate today. The waterfall which cascades from the top wall into a stone basin can also be enjoyed from a large open-air upper-level deck. Expansive grounds include a log cabin, currently used as a rental.
