The year is 1920. World War I officially ended. The Chandlers, a wealthy family from NY are busy putting the finishing touches on their new country estate. Nestled in a quiet corner of Chester County, PA sits Padua Estate. A luxurious villa situated on over 30 acres of prime real estate in the Unionville Chadds Ford School District. Enjoy hunting, fishing, horseback riding and more, right outside your back door. More than 14,000 square feet of living space with 16 bedrooms, 10 full baths, two half baths & 6 fireplaces, Padua Estate represents an opportunity for a very discriminating buyer to own a piece of history and architecture that rivals some of the best properties found anywhere in the world. How did Padua Estate get its name? After nearly a decade of parties, enjoyment and continued family prosperity, the Chandler's decided to donate the property to the CatholicChurch. This may have been the family's way of "giving back" as the rest of the country slipped more deeply into the Great Depression. Many priests at the time had just served in the War and were now trying to help their fellow man as the country dealt with the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrialized world. The Chandler's felt their paradise could benefit not only the church, but America as a whole. Not wasting a minute of their time with the donated property, the priests immediately went to work. The living room once enjoyed by the Chandler's became the Chapel for the priests. A notable and still present fixture to this day was the construction of the Stations of The Cross. Over the next 2 decades Padua Estate was the place that Bishops, Cardinals and priests from all over the world had come to recharge themselves.The year is now 1975. It's a feel good time and these new owners are feeling great. They not only embrace Padua Estate, but once they look out over the gardens from the second floor Master Bedroom balcony?they fall in love! Padua Estate has a new caretaker. Over the next 40+ years the new owners and their guests enjoy the beauty, richness and history. 3 Generations are realized under one roof. From the roaring 20's to 70's and 80's, Padua Estate has hosted people from all over the world. From Titans and Captains of Industry to Presidents and Politicos, Cardinals and Bishops right down to the family member, Padua Estate has served them all. When only the best will do? location, schools, architecture, history, story. Padua Estate. If these walls could talk!

Bold. Historic. Living Work of Art. This noble stone barn has existed since the 1850's and was completely revitalized in 2017 to last another 100+ years. Archer Buchanan Architecture has honored and preserved history while bringing this property into the 21st century. The incredible result is a 7700 sq ft home that is both spacious and intimate. From the framing, subfloors, electrical, plumbing, insulation and HVAC systems... to the steel beam reinforcements wrapped with antique timber, the internal workings are completely new. New windows and doors were chosen to complement the architecture and provide efficiency. Custom kitchen in bright hues, Bathrooms of Moroccan Tile, River Recovered Heart Pine floors, Sonos Audio, MALM fireplaces, and 80 light fixtures offer all the best quality. The clever use of color and modern accents take what could have been a predictable barn house into a showpiece that delights the eye at every turn. Stone has been pressure washed and repointed, some interior stone left exposed, and this contributes to the venerable yet modern feel. This property will continue to gain character, beauty and value for many years to come! Thornbury, Chester County is a buolic township steeped in history, and minutes from medical, shopping, educational and recreational facilities. 20 miles to Philadelphia International Airport.

Rarely does an historic property of this provenance come to market. The home to one of Chester County's famed families, the Strode Family, for hundreds of years, this five Bedroom, 3.2 Bath home dates to the mid-1700's, but was tastefully and seamlessly added onto in 1991, with subsequent alterations in 2005. The oldest section of the home is found in the Living Room and Dining Room, both of which retain much of their historic charm and patina. Graced with original hardware, floors, doors, and moldings, this section possesses a unique character only found in noteworthy Chester County homes. The Living Room was once two rooms and has a corner fireplace in one end and a cooking fireplace in the other. Likewise, the Dining Room has the original walk-in fireplace and exposed beams. Both the Living Room and Dining Room uniquely feature higher than normal ceilings for a 300 year old home. The Entry, Kitchen, and Family Room are all part of a beautifully executed addition which retains the antique character of the older section but features contemporary details such as a cathedral ceiling in the Family Room and walls of windows in the Kitchen and Family Room overlooking the brick Patio. Upstairs in the 1991 addition is a stunning Master Suite with a vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet, and a gracious Master Bath. Four bedrooms and two baths are in the older section of the home, one of which features the original hand-planed, beaded board walls - a true rarity! In 2005, a spacious 4+ car Garage was added which has plenty of storage capacity for lawn equipment and even a 5th car. The loft of the Garage offers plenty of convenient storage space. Currently set on 2.1 manageable acres, this wonderful property abuts township open space. A perfect property for the commuter, there is easy access to Routes 202 and 1 and the commute to Wilmington is just 20 minutes. The Philadelphia Airport is less than 40 minutes away. Beautiful and fun downtown West Chester is less than 5 minutes away. This is a great property for someone seeking a legendary homestead that has been perfectly updated in a great, convenient location.
