Valley Creek Farm is beckoning its next lucky stewards to bring fresh vision to this historic farm on 15 bucolic acres in East Bradford Township. This Chester County sanctuary was part of the historic Samuel Starr Farm and operated as a Quaker dairy farm until 1985. It is adjacent to Starr Farm Park, with 93 acres of open space and walking trails. This country setting is surprisingly convenient to both Downingtown and West Chester Boroughs - each of which offer access to dining, shopping and entertainment. The circa 1800, south-facing fieldstone and stucco, central hall federal-style farmhouse, is nestled into the hill in the secluded back wooded corner of the property. The 3,480 square foot farmhouse with 4 bedrooms and 3-1/2 baths welcomes you with original features such as hardwood flooring, wood molding and plasterwork, chair rails, paneled window wells, staircase molding, and fireplace mantels. Adjacent to the main house is a detached 2-car garage, springhouse, and a large dairy barn with corn crib and clay-tile silos. North of the main house and barn is a 1,500 square foot tenant house with 3 bedrooms and 1 bath that is perfect for family or rental. The property is enrolled in Act 319 for low taxes and will be sold subject to Conservation Easement in favor of the Brandywine Conservancy & Museum of Art, and subject to reservation and a Declaration of Trail Easement (along Skelp Level Road) to be recorded at or before conveyance, and subject to reservation of an easement in favor of East Bradford Township along driveway (to access township property behind this parcel).
