Description

Welcome to Two Springs Farms. This is a 4 bedroom 2 full bath home on 3.8 acres. The farmhouse welcomes you through a large front porch, providing a warm and inviting entrance. Inside, the dining and living rooms feature exposed beams and deep windowsills, adding to the farmhouse's rustic charm. The living room boasts an original stone fireplace with a wood stove, perfect for cozy evenings. The kitchen offers real wooden cabinets, a built-in corner cupboard, butcher block countertops, and a newer dishwasher from 2021. A sunroom off the kitchen provides a comfortable space with another wood stove, adding versatility to the property. There is a downstairs bathroom with a shower, conveniently located near the back door, leading to a large deck under mature flowering dogwood trees and large lilac bushes. Upstairs, there is an updated bathroom with a claw foot tub/shower, toilet, and vanity installed in 2020. The main bedroom features two closets and built-in shelves. There are three more nice-sized bedrooms in this home. The boiler was replaced in 2019, ensuring efficient heating for the farmhouse. Rounding out the inside of the home is the walk out basement and attic. Both offer plenty of additional storage and could be converted into additional living spaces. The property includes a historic working spring house with a room that has been partially converted into a 3-season room in 2021. There's also an adjacent stone garden. A large 2-story Chester county bank barn, estimated to be from the 1860s, features 220-volt electric, two extra-large horse stalls, and a separate large storage area on the lower level, and a large space above that was renovated in 2015. This space could have various uses, such as a workshop or entertaining area. There are additional outbuildings along the farm lane, including a run-in shed (part of which is used as a chicken coop), a one-car garage (also used as a run-in for animals), a stone one-story storage/art studio/woodshed, and a storage shed. The property has an Act 319 status, which offers a property tax reduction program for agricultural or open space land. Additionally, the property has permission from the township for keeping two horses or large animals. The property has a rich history of past uses, including chickens, goats, beekeeping, organic farming, and horses, making it suitable for a variety of homesteading and agricultural pursuits. This is a great location. You are just minutes from Rt 322. Rt 30 and Marsh Creek State Park. Overall, Two Springs Farm offers a blend of historic charm and modern amenities, making it an attractive option for those interested in homesteading and rural living.
