801 W MARKET ST, West Chester, PA 19382  

Designed by famed architect Frank Furness as a gate house, this wonderful property could be right out of the rural Cotswolds of Great Britain. From the English Chimney pots dating from the 1850s atop the chimneys, to the standing seam metal roof and shingle and brick textures, from the stone walls and patios to the meandering paths through the perfect gardens, this cozy home exudes the best of English country cottage style and class, inside and out. The 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath home is surrounded by stunning gardens and quiet landscaped nooks perfect for entertaining friends and family. The home's original stone section (c.1860) retains much of its original character, such as gleaming wood floors, antique hardware, deep window sills and built-in cabinets. On the main level of the c.1930s's section is a gourmet Kitchen, totally redone in 2009 with a Wolf range, Bosch dishwasher, high-end cabinetry, and beautiful granite countertops. Off the Kitchen is a dramatic Family Room (c.1990's) with a 12' ceiling, fireplace, wall of windows, access to the rear deck overlooking the manicured gardens, and a large sliding door to a private outdoor "Dining Room" with stone walls and flowing vegetation. The Family Room could also be used as a first floor master suite. Upstairs are three bedrooms with a picture perfect bathroom featuring a ball-and-claw soaking tub. Access to one basement area is from the interior, and access to a second basement area is from the side of the house. Set on a magnificently landscaped acre, the home is surrounded by protected open space, giving the setting a country feel, but within easy walking distance of downtown West Chester. Or you could get on your bike for a short pedal to the nearby Stroud Preserve. Historic charm, stunning improvements, great location, and extremely low taxes - here is your opportunity to own a premier property. This one-of-a-kind property is truly the best of all worlds.
