Single Family Home

Alderbrook Farm provides the modern conveniences and finishes you might find in a custom home with the historic elegance for which traditional Chester County homes are known. This is the quintessential Chester County farmhouse estate. Set on 11+ bucolic acres, and amidst other conserved open space in sought after Chester Springs and in the award winning Downingtown School District, this is country living at its best. Elegant, timeless and sophisticated, Alderbrook Farm has been carefully maintained and updated over its 266 year history, including an addition and remodeling in the 20th century by renowned architect John Milner, and more recent additions and updates that have tastefully enhanced Alderbrook Farm. Modern features include the recently renovated kitchen, the amazing master bedroom suite, and the John Milner designed family room. Historical features include the former summer kitchen (now the library), the stately living room and dining room, and the traditional woodwork and hardware throughout the home. The grounds at Alderbrook are a gardener's paradise and nothing short of breathtaking, with picture perfect settings abounding from every angle. The grounds feature a pool and pool house, specimen trees, and an English style walled garden set among the foundations of the old bank barn. The expansive wildflower meadow is perfect for animals and the property allows for a new barn to be easily added or for the existing out-building in part of the old barn foundation to be converted to a modern barn. The oversize four car garage includes an apartment (currently rented by a local equestrian) that could also function as an in-law-suite or guesthouse. Surrounded by conserved open space, Alderbrook Farm's meadows fall gently to a brook in the woods at the edge of the property. Protected by a conservation easement held by the French and Pickering Creek Conservation Trust, the property enjoys low taxes through the Act 319 "Clean and Green" program. Conveniently located 10 minutes from Exton, 15 minutes from Phoenixville, 20 minutes from Paoli and West Chester, 25 minutes from King of Prussia, and 45 minutes from Philadelphia, the Philadelphia International Airport and Wilmington.
