Pines Quest, located on the fringe of Kennett Square, is one of a few properties existing today that exhibits real heritage and legacy. It is a rare occasion when a property that is not only intact, but also tastefully restored and updated in the tradition of that legacy, actually becomes available. Originally built in the late 1930's using only the finest in materials and skilled craftsmanship, that tradition has been carried forward with modern amenities and upgrades blended in a manner that makes it difficult to discern the old from new.
The house majestically sets on 13 glorious and extremely private acres. The private driveway carries you among 100 plus year-old trees and it is evident that you are somewhere special. As you drive around the house and prepare to enter, you will be certain you are about to experience a property like no other. Included in the many amazing features that define this home from top to bottom are the 6" quarter sawn white oak floors, abundant, completely custom trim and high-end lighting. The kitchen features handmade Christiana Cabinetry with stone trim and tops, Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, and a huge separate butler's pantry offering reserve storage and refrigeration. Adjacent to the kitchen is the enormous family room, an ideal place to spend time with family and close friends. Moving through the den, the grand foyer is highlighted by the original curved staircase and the center hall leading to the rear of the home. Beyond is a living room that will easily host the finest gatherings during those special holidays and occasions. On par with the grand living room is the dining room that will comfortably seat 14 special guests. Upstairs the master suite will rival the finest space comparable to any luxury hotel. The bright master bath offers the absolute pinnacle in amenities and fixtures accompanied by floor-radiant heat and an abundance of natural light. On this level you will also find a princess suite with its own private full bath, and two additional bedrooms sharing another full bath. There is also a 1,000 plus or minus square feet bonus room accessible via a dedicated staircase at the rear of the home. This space features the same amazing hardwood flooring, high ceilings and large windows and is truly a private oasis. With its own dedicated full bath this would make a fantastic home office, in-law suite or studio with separation from the rest of the home. In keeping with today's high expectations regarding responsible and smart energy usage the home is outfitted with a state-of-the-art geothermal HVAC system featuring in-floor radiant heat. Dense packed spray foam and cellulose insulation along with double and triple pane aluminum-clad wood Loewen windows were used throughout. Further, 100% of the wiring and plumbing in the home was removed and replaced for years of trouble-free living. Almost no part of this fine home went untouched during this extensive renovation. Outside, the grounds are truly one of the best parts of this wonderful property. There is a newly constructed barn to the rear with roughed in plumbing and electric. Additionally, the open area surrounded by the elegant stone ruins of a previous barn from long ago is perfect for large formal parties or gatherings. The field, opposite the driveway, consists of approximately eight acres, is zoned R2, is sub-dividable and offers full development rights. Very few properties at this price point offer the value you will find here. If you have been looking for that truly special property that covers everything anyone in the family could want, your wait is over. Come tour Pines Quest today.
