'Chanticleer House' … an opportunity to acquire an elegant, beautifully positioned historic estate with acreage, in the pristine gently rolling countryside of the Wyeths and the DuPonts in Philadelphia’s western suburbs.
Substantial acreage affords complete privacy and spectacular hilltop views. Topography includes a perfect balance of gently rolling lawns, meadows, and woodlands. A trophy!
The French Provincial style stone and slate Residence dates to the 1920's. Its craftsmanship, architectural lines, and historic character are all extraordinary.
The Residence retains many original architectural features and structural elements, including a slate roof, plaster walls, deep windowsills, original millwork and brass hardware, numerous fireplaces, original hardwood floors, and much, much more. Even the original 3-Bedroom 'Servants Apartment' retains many of its original elements.
For equestrians, there are stables and a paddock ; several large and well-protected meadows provide ample turnout, and horses are easily visible from the Residence. The entire Estate is fenced. A mile-long perimeter trail offers immediate rideout — and also serves as an excellent walking trail (or cross-country ski trail in the winter).
There's a beautiful lake — and, alongside the lake is a charming cabin and fireplace which once served as an ice-skating cottage.
