Welcome to 349 Corner Ketch Road, situated on 5.2 acres in the award-winning Downingtown school district. This historic farmhouse has been lovingly renovated and reimagined using Amish craftsmen. The original farmhouse, built in 1865 with approximately 1,560 sf, has been transformed into a spectacular 4,100 sf beauty. The original stone has been exposed both outside and inside the home. The renovations rival new construction with all new systems including septic, electric, plumbing, roof, and windows (except for front of house as required by historic commission). The addition includes an impressive foyer area complete with a walk-in mudroom, lovely tile floor and a jaw dropping 40-foot stone well that is illuminated with lights and a glass floor exposing the open well. The exquisite kitchen features an abundance of custom built, soft close cabinets, quartzite countertops, tile backsplash, under cabinet lighting, upscale black stainless-steel appliances and floor to ceiling wall of custom built-in cabinets. The bright eat-in kitchen features French doors that lead to the stone patio overlooking the magnificent views of the property. This is the perfect place for morning coffee, quiet evenings to enjoy a book or additional outside space to entertain. Included in the addition is a walk-in pantry and a full bath featuring a stall shower, tile floor, and built-in cabinet. Walk through the stone archway to the living room that has had its beauty brought back to life. Gleaming wood floors, 2 working wood-burning fireplaces, recessed lighting has been added throughout the entire house, and exposed stone walls that have been repointed. Every window sill features custom drawers for added storage. You will also find the original spiral staircase that leads to the basement and a second spiral staircase that is no longer in use. The formal dining room also features wood floors, exposed stone walls and can accommodate a large table. Perfect for those holiday gatherings. Take the curved wooden staircase to the second floor where you will find the fabulous master suite with private views of the property, a large walk-in closet with a pocket door, recessed lighting, ceiling fan and a luxurious master bath with a tile floor, custom vanity with double sinks, granite countertop and stall shower with floor to ceiling tile surround. Bedrooms 2 and 3 on this level both offer wood floors. Or use the flex room as an office, playroom, or den. The convenient laundry room is also located on the second floor and includes a sink with additional cabinet space, tile floor and built-in ironing board. The 3rd full bath is completely updated and offers a tasteful vanity, and the original reglazed cast iron tub with added tile surround. The third floor has a similar set up with 2 bedrooms and full Bath. These rooms are connected and can be used as a suite with a bedroom and bonus room for exercise, movie/game room, or homeschool room. The walk-out basement is clean, bright and holds the new HVAC system, new hot water heater, updated plumbing and is great for storage. This property comes with so much. Bring your horses, the 5.2 acres includes a pasture, a refurbished 2-stall barn with water and electric, and the upper level can be a 2-car garage or a barn for a tractor, equipment, tack, or toys. A property like this only comes around once in a lifetime. No expense was spared in the renovation of this exceptional historic home. The expert work of the Amish craftsmen can be seen in the details of the custom cabinetry, window sills, shelving units, and unique nooks. All of this yet you are minutes from downtown Downingtown featuring shops, restaurants, gyms, schools, hair salons and all the amenities a small city brings. Plus, Corner Ketch Road is close to schools and major routes 30, 100, 322, 113, turnpike and the train station.
