Description

Down a winding road through historic Kimberton and across Kennedy covered bridge you will find Serengeti Winds Farm. This historic property offers a rare opportunity to own a 12.79 acre equestrian farm with views of French Creek in the rolling hills of gorgeous Chester County. The farm offers a village-like setting consisting of 2 homes, a multi-use bank barn, new run-in sheds, original smokehouse, and restored springhouse. This property is perfect for the equestrian, a multi-generational family, or the discerning buyer looking for a private retreat (while remaining close to Philadelphia and its major routes). The Chester County fieldstone farmhouse, circa 1800, features sweeping upper and lower front porches and has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths with deep window sills, original hardwood floors, and two fireplaces. The farmhouse's lower level is newly restored and showcases period brick floors. It has a walk-out to the lower porch and flagstone pathway to the springhouse. The newly restored springhouse contains a beautiful tasting room with hardwood floors, electric wood stove, and Vaulted Ceiling with exposed beams. The large 4+ stall bank barn features a heated tack room, wash stall, spacious storage areas, hay loft, tractor shed, and tool shop. The 12' x 12' stalls open to a 2,100 square foot paddock area that flows directly out to the pastures. The large heated party barn space has three sleeping lofts and a cathedral ceiling with gorgeous exposed beams, plus a guest suite with full bath. The carriage house, an 18th century reproduction, was custom built in 2007 and has 2 bedroom and 1.5 baths. It features exposed timber frames, local fieldstone, custom tile radiant heat floors, Pella windows, a first floor master suite, and two-car garage. The easy to finish upper level offers a range of possibilities, including the ability to add 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath, with roughed-in plumbing and electrical. The carriage house's spacious back patio overlooks the fenced garden and original smokehouse that doubles as the garden shed. The post and board pastures contain two new run-in sheds handcrafted by a local artisan and provide 144 square feet of enclosed storage space for hay and tack. A 72' x 144' riding ring at the top of the property backs to the neighboring farm. The seller retained an engineer and can provide a subdivision plan with the potential to split-off 1.27 acres and remain in compliance with Act 319 (which means low taxes). This historic property was part of a land grant from William Penn to Major Robert Thomas in 1686, and was once owned by John and Rose Lucas, after whom Lucas Road is named. Serengeti Winds Farm offers spectacular views of local wildlife, including bald eagles, turkeys, herons, and wood ducks. Located minutes from Phoenixville (voted one of the top ten most charming towns in Pennsylvania), when you visit this one-of-a-kind property you'll know that you're home.
