Property Description

Unique Barn Conversion from an historic 230 year-old Pennsylvania stone bank-barn. Cornerstone Barn is listed as a class 2 historic structure (The Thomas Hill Brinton Barn) and is now a one-of-a kind custom-built semi-detached carriage home which is adjacent to dedicated open space. Essentially new construction in 2007 but loaded with history as this design incorporates the stone wall remains of a 1804 Quaker-Built Barn with the earthen ramp and stone walls fully restored. Live here and experience the history but still enjoy a modern and easy to maintain home. This home is on a small lot thus it is easy and inexpensive to maintain, but you still have what seems like a large lot but mowed and maintained by the Cherry Creek Homeowner's Association which is a Conservation Community. There are over 100 acres of HOA open space which includes approx 4 miles of HOA-mowed off-road walking trails right outside your front door and approx 3 miles of upscale neighborhood public sidewalks. The HOA fee is only $88 per month and includes the open space management and 2x week trash pickup. Cherry Creek is located in Thornbury Twp, the "Jewel of the Region", a Township without one traffic light and no (none) real estate taxes (but has a wage tax) and very convenient: only a short drive to 5 (!!!!!) grocery stores and only one-half mile to Wawa. Close to nearby historic sites including the Brandywine Battlefield where the 9/11/1777 Revolutionary War Battle was fought and the British soldiers recuperated on this very location on the former farm. Later it was a stop on the Underground Railroad with a hideout room in this very barn. This home is remarkable for the large cornerstones & the even larger impression that this home leaves on those that see it. Extraordinary large scale and elegantly finished w/10 foot ceilings, oversized custom woodwork, large public spaces (foyer, hallways, living spaces) window seats, lighted cupola, weathervane, Andersen wood/fibrex windows, 2-zone high-efficiency HVAC, sumptuous Primary Retreat. But wait, there is a Secondary Retreat as well that is set apart on a separate level and features a jumbo bedroom and bath. The first floor has an attractive front porch into a large light-filled Foyer, a separate Office, Living Room, Dining Room, Family Room and Kitchen w/ breakfast area. The flooring is all oak hardwood flooring just refinished with a light cherry/gunstock stain. Granite tops in the timeless and rich cherry kitchen. Second floor has three bedrooms, two baths and a full-featured laundry room. The walkout Lower Level is fully finished and brings the living area up to 4,900 sq ft. and includes a full bath plus a Kitchenette and it also has an area that could be utilized as an in-law suite or 5th bedroom. Despite all of the space, the home is still a good fit for just a couple because the square footage is spread out over 4 levels; not a huge warehouse home and definitely not a cookie cutter house! The two-car garage has an extra-wide and extra-tall garage door with opener and an inside entrance to the Foyer. Ceiling fans and plenty of storage spaces and large closets throughout. Listed as a detached home for search purposes but it is semi-detached and seller lives next door; one barn-two houses. Home has just undergone a light remodel including refinished floors, new HVAC, fresh paint, new appliance and much more. New-owner ready. This home was built in 2007 in the stone wall remains of the 1804 stone bank barn that was part of the prior farm on this property which was from a William Penn Land Grant to William Brinton in 1684 (great history!) and abuts abundant open space maintain by the HOA. See the history displayed in the house along with items in garage from the archaeological dig on-site.
