Comfortable 1930s cape in Marlborough Village

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Full Bath, 1 Half Bath

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.

About owner / property manager

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

owner / property manager purchased this house in 2013

Why owner / property manager chose Brandywine Valley

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.

A charming home

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely spot. I feel lucky to have found it. I booked our 2 night stay at the last minute, and Ben was quick to respond to all my questions. You are in good hands with Ben! I visited with my 82-year old mother (to visit Longwood Gardens, Brandywine River Art Museum and Nemours Estate) and this was the perfect location. Clean, comfortable, has everything we needed, close to all that we wanted to see, but also felt remote. I hope to bring my husband and kids (8 and 10) one day.

My dad and I had such a wonderful returning to Unionville. The home was comfortable and quite. We enjoyed looking at all the wonderful history books and sitting on screen porch having coffee. We will definitely return the next time we come up to Pa.
