                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1980

                      About the owner: I was born on a 1797 farm between the historic villages of Kimberton and Chester Springs. Surrounded by two-thousand acres, the farm was instrumental in starting my home-grown business - Vixen Hill (farm) Mfg. Co., now a world supplier of cedar gazebos, shutters, pavilions and 3-season modular porch systems. A porch system and shutters appear on the farm VRBO rental in Chester Springs #197851. I am an avid supporter of open space & historic places believing in leaving a minimal earthly footprint.

                      Why the Owner Chose Chester Springs:
                      My children were born on a property within the nearby village of Yellow Springs. I've rented the main house and artist's studio since 1995 when I moved with my family back to the family farm. There were so many fond memories of life in the village that I've kept it as a possible place for future retirement. The newly renovated studio with it's vaulted ceiling and balcony bedroom make a perfect place to escape for a romantic weekend.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Unique benefits of the the 'Village' include ice cream Sundays, horse & carriages, various spa buildings to explore, museum, art lessons, library, walking paths, summer concerts, art shows, restaurant/catering, and historic ruins. There's the 'Hallman's corner store', Kimberton Bistro, gristmill, local whole-foods store and over 20 quality restaurants within a ten minute drive. And, the general population is intelligent, above average people with something to say. What else could you want?
