Exceptional estate on 10+ wooded acres in Chadds Ford displays the pride of "Chateau Country" in the Brandywine Valley.

With 13,000-sq.-feet of living space on 3 levels, this home features a warm yet sophisticated kitchen with Dacor range and built-in oven, butler’s pantry, and granite countertops.

Lower level also holds a pub with a wet bar near the 11-seat home theater and 1,200-bottle wine room with stone walls and stone sink. Second-floor music room, complete with a mural of instruments, is great as a playroom or media room. The L-shaped garage, which wraps around a courtyard, can hold five cars and storage. Refined woodwork throughout includes hardwood floors milled from Vermont trees just for this home, crown molding, ornate mantles and ceilings and clever hidden door in the DR for serving supplies. Don’t miss the second-floor laundry room with space for two washers and two dryers or the walk-in attic with a raised dais and cedar closet. This property also includes a 2-bedroom guesthouse with pool, renovated kitchen and lovely sunroom plus a one-bedroom pool house with kitchen - use as a studio or place to relax and reflect! Ideally situated near Winterthur Museum and Longwood Gardens and three years in the making, this home is a perfectionist’s dream.
