Step back in time to this historic home located in the desirable Hamorton Village, built in 1830 by an abolitionist Quaker couple who operated a “free store” here until 1850. While this property has a "Baltimore Pike" address, access is via Buttonwood Drive in the rear of the home, where you are welcomed by a detached garage/work shop/tool shed, three car parking and fully fenced, level rear yard. Sellers are avid gardeners and the abundance of perennials and flowering annuals will feel like walking thru Longwood gardens! The established cottage gardens include mature fruit bearing Asian pear trees, strawberry bed, heirloom purple raspberries, pergola, and the added bonus is the charming green house with brick floor. The main entrance is accessed from the lovely porch with brick patio and brand new cedar shingle roof. This covered area extends your living space and is perfect for entertaining or just to relax and enjoy nature. The warm and inviting country kitchen has a breakfast nook and separate sitting area with hardwood floors and exposed wood beams. Sellers have been told that this space was once a local ice cream shop! Step into the charming living room with fireplace (not in use) which flows into the formal study/den (currently used as a first floor bedroom) and full bath. As you walk up the steps to the spacious second floor you will enter a large open space area with beautiful built in bookshelves and large closet that could have many uses (children's play area, second home office or even 4th bedroom). The second bedroom is accessed via this space as well as the stairs to the finished attic/3rd bedroom which has its own heating and cooling (wall unit). On the other side of the main staircase are the very large main bath and main bedroom with large double closets. This is a solidly built stone and frame home with recent replacement windows (plenty of bright light), central air and brand new BOSCH tankless water heater. Hamorton Village is an adorable, quiet community, much of it built by Pierre Dupont for his Longwood Gardens employees, surrounded by open space, fields & sidewalks with very little traffic. It is minutes from downtown Kennett Square and Chadds Ford/Glen Mills and major shopping areas/venues. Don’t delay, this one will go fast!
