8+ ACRES!!!!! A HUGE PRICE IMPROVEMENT!!!! All the trappings of a vintage colonial home. Large fireplace, hardwood floors, bank barn and yes low ceilings in some of the rooms. From 1828 until 1889, this beautiful property served as the Brandywine Tannery which later changed to the M. B. Chambers Tannery in honor of its owner, Marshall B. Chambers. In 1890 the tannery was converted to a grist mill serving West Bradford along with its surrounding areas and functioned as such until it was demolished in 1931. This unique property has connections back to the Penn's Grant and there is evidence of deeds of record dating to the very early 1700's. The original house is believed to have been established in the 1730's with subsequent additions /renovations in the mid-1800's and 1900's.
The property includes 8.2 acres of fields and some woods, a bank barn with 3-4 stalls and tack area under and an upper level 58' by 38'. An inground pool with a pool house is also included. There are flowers all over the property, a formal garden with a pergola deck and much, much more.
Please review the floor plans, the plot plan, the virtual tour, the photos and the accountings of the previous owners located on this site. Come for a visit. This property is a historical treasure to West Bradford and the Brandywine Valley.
