There just aren't enough superlatives to describe this outstanding manor home in the much sought after neighborhood of Chantilly Farm, located in the pastoral, desirable community of Chester Springs. From car-stopping curb appeal -- long winding driveway, slate walkway, stacked stone & siding faÃ§ade, front door w/transom & sidelights flanked with coach lamps, and custom landscaping -- to an extraordinary interior design, this remarkable residence stands more than prepared for a fortunate new owner. The nearly 7,000 sq ft of impeccable living space are graced with just-refinished hardwoods throughout the first level, custom moldings & millwork in most every room, walls of windows & breathtaking views to the private yard with a protected watershed beyond the rear boundary. Displaying formal & informal rooms, both family relaxation or entertaining on a large scale are equally & easily accommodated. Entering into the Foyer offers a glimpse through a wide center reception area, featuring an impressive staircase, custom chandelier, and gallery overlook from the 2nd floor. A formal Living Room with gorgeous fireplace (gas) & a banquet-sized Dining Room adjoin the Foyer, while a tucked-away pathway leads from the Living Room to a dedicated home office with tons of natural light. Don't miss a mini version of the office as you pass by. An open floor plan & extra wide doorways found on the first level lend themselves to a wonderful flow, and yet the sensation of comfort & coziness. The Kitchen & Morning Room are extraordinary, with a great expanse of windows, huge granite island, an abundance of custom glazed cabinetry, top of the line stainless steel appliances, impressive light fixtures, vaulted ceiling, an adjoining mud room area with access to the Garage & a stairway to the second floor. For those evenings of binge watching, nothing comes close to the warmth & appeal of the bright & airy Family Room. Graced by a cozy fireplace with custom mantle and slate hearth, and surrounded by soaring windows, a half-vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, and just refinished hardwoods, this expansive space -- just steps from the Kitchen -- will entice family and guests alike to relax and unwind. And ..... speaking of that second floor, the main staircase offers a wide, bright window seat at the landing, and terminates at a sitting area offering views to both front and back yards. This level proudly features five spacious bedrooms (all with ceiling fans) including the primary suite: walls of windows, tray ceiling, two custom walk-in closets, and a spa bath where pampering and relaxation are defined by a soaking tub, double shower & his-and-hers vanities. The remaining 4 bedrooms all have direct access to Jack & Jill bathrooms, each one with dual sinks. If a home ever included a show stopper, you'll find it here on the daylight lower level. Just made for enjoyment, you'll find four impeccably designed spaces, intended for function & fun. The custom designed and created cherry wet bar, with recessed lighting, tray ceiling, granite counters, wine bar & unique built-in bistro tables compare to anything Cheers might have featured. Guests & family alike will enjoy the media and game areas, while the home gym awaits your own fitness equipment. Be sure to take note of the gas fireplace & two 'stacked stone' accent walls -- brilliant additions to the decor on this level. This is truly destination entertaining, and the spectacular private back yard with its sweeping deck, expansive slate patio, built in grill, & custom stone fireplace adds to the resort-like ambiance of this amazing home. Situated in the historic Chester Springs community with its equestrian centers, Yellow Springs Village & SALT Performing Arts Center, the location & its amenities is exceeded only by the award winning Downingtown School district, with its highly rated STEM Academy. Nothing short of perfection awaits at 1713 Chantilly Lane.
