Built from local bricks in 1810, this impeccably maintained Georgian-style house at Dill Farm is the centerpiece of a 10.1-acre estate that is ideal for large-scale entertaining, as well as the peace and tranquility of country life-all a short hop to the shops and restaurants of Kennett Square. With 10-foot ceilings, five fireplaces, abundant millwork, and random-width hardwood floors throughout, the home was artfully and seamlessly expanded twice, in 1935 and 1995, and includes many of its original features, including the lock and hardware on the front door. Yet it s been updated for the 21st century, with zoned heating and cooling, radiant heated floors in the mudroom and family room, and an attached three-car garage. Indoors, there are bountiful opportunities to gather. The dining room, enhanced with wainscoting and a fireplace, comfortably seats 10. The family room, with floor-to-ceiling cabinets crafted by a local artisan, is open to the breakfast room. Both spaces are adjacent to the kitchen. The kitchen is equipped for efficient entertaining with double wall ovens, an integrated fridge, Miele dishwasher and Gaggenau cooktop with pot filler. White custom cabinets and marble countertops reflect the home s vintage charm. A lower level with high ceilings provides additional space for entertaining, including a game room with a fireplace and 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 and 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. The serene and private setting is fabulous for parties or every-day quiet moments. The grounds are expansive and include a log cabin, currently used as a rental. A spacious apartment over the garage offers accommodations for visitors or staff. A large barn, built from a Sears and Roebuck kit, was part of the 1935 update. A smaller stone barn dates back to the 19th century. Both barns can be readily put to use for keeping livestock. Two parcels total equal 10.1 acres - TAX ID # 62-04-0162 & 62-04-0112
