Kennett Square house description

This Cape Cod style house has been owned by our family since it was built in 1938. While small compared to houses being built in Chester County now, it is quite comfortable in the winter, and in warmer weather the screen porch is the perfect place to relax.

The two bedrooms are on the second floor: the larger one has a queen-sized bed and the smaller one has a full or double bed.

There is a full bathroom with a tile shower on the second floor, and a small combined laundry room/half bath on the ground floor. The kitchen while compact is well suited to cooking with a gas range and is completely stocked with cookware and dishes.

The house is situated on a two acre property and is quite private. The driveway has room for two cars. There is a second house on the property with its own driveway, and several other houses clustered near by, with a historic Quaker meeting house across the road.

                          Kennett Underground Railroad Center, Longwood Gardens, New Bolton Center, Brandywine River Museum, Brandywine Battlefield Historic Site are all quite close.

                          Marlborough Village is quite close to Bernard's Orchard with a great selection of local fruit and vegetables, as well as Northbrook Canoe Company which is right on the Brandywine River. Kennett Square offers a wide variety of restaurants and shops including, Sam's Subs and La Peña Mexicana. Not too far is The Whip, a perfect country pub.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About the owner: I bought this last year, but I grew up here, and so did my mother. It was built in 1936 by my grandparents.

                          Why the Owner Chose Kennett Square:
                          I wanted to keep this property in our family for continuity. Chester County has a lot of large modern houses and also a lot of beautiful old farmhouses and barns: this is neither! It is a smaller Cape Cod style house built from a Better Homes and Gardens plan.
