Many farmhouses in Chester County and throughout our state sit close to the road, if not right on it. 27 Lafayette Circle however sits nestled in a charming quiet community perched atop its stunning 1.1 acre lakefront property. Yes, you read that correctly…a lakefront farmhouse. Many search for years to find a home like this, but only once in a great while does a home as unique and charming as this actually become available. Let me be the first to tell you, your search is over and your patience is about to pay off. This stunning field stone farmhouse not only backs up to the 525 Acre lake at Marsh Creek, but its elevation provides the most stunning views of incredible natures-capes and endless year-round sunsets. Truly a nature lovers paradise, right outside your back door you will have access to enjoy fishing, canoeing, paddle boarding, mountain biking, sailing, bird watching, ice skating and hiking throughout the 1800 acre park. This lovingly restored and period correct farmhouse is warm and inviting and has been lovingly updated from top to bottom so all you have to do is simply move in and enjoy. And if location is everything, then you have found a winner here. Not only are you close to numerous major commuting routes, but you are also minutes from sought after Downingtown area schools, shopping and dining experiences and multiple local recreation areas. While the setting of this property is sure to captivate you, the home itself offers equally incredible living. Prior to stepping inside 27 Lafayette Circle, you will want to linger outdoors and take in the all of the grounds and the extensive landscaping, but you will especially the lake views from the private rear patio where nature itself provides the frame for daily sunset views one can only dream of. Upon entering this 3BD, 2 Full, 1 Half BA home, you will immediately feel a sense history and nostalgia that are so wonderfully enhanced by modern sensibilities. This home features an updated kitchen with custom cabinentry, granite counter tops and all of the sought-after upgrades complimented but one of the homes many exposed stone fireplaces. Off the kitchen you will find the well-appointed family room, with stunning original hardwoods and it’s own fireplace, that invites you inside to sit down and relax after a long day either at work or hiking the local trails. Truly an entertainer's delight, the family room also opens to the expansive dining room, complete with, yes your guessed it, another massive stone fireplace. Off the dining room you will find the first floor bonus room with half bath that is currently a home office but could also easily be used as a yoga studio, art and music room, home school room, or other creative space. To top it off, both the dining room and home office lead out to the enclosed porch, complete with rocking chairs that will invite you outside throughout the seasons to enjoy the sunrise with your favorite coffee or an evening out with a good book in hand. The deck also looks out over what is truly a wonderful yard which provides both water access and well-manicured room to run which is perfect for those weekend BBQs and crisp evenings out under the stars. Back inside, the upstairs, the second floor is highlighted by the master suite complete with amply closet space and an en suite bath. Additionally, there are two well sized bedrooms and another full bath. Incredibly there is also a second-floor laundry as all of these features here on the second floor are extremely rare to find in a home of this vintage. In addition to the generous amount of storage spaces, you will find a third-floor loft complete with peg and dowel constructed beams which could be used for further storage, or finished for additional bonus space within the home. 27 Lafayette Circle is truly an incredible home that has been loving updated from top to bottom while always showing respect for the history from which is comes. Enjoy!
