Description for 1421 Baltimore Pike Chadds Ford, PA 19317
Attention history buffs, b&b dabblers and business owners - Here is your chance to own a piece of Chester County history. Situated on 3.6 acres and built by Samuel Painter in 1856, this Italianate style villa has long been a part of Chadds Ford history. Bordering Brandywine Battlefield Park and known as "Painters Folly", it was the home of Howard Pyle, founder of the Brandywine School of Art where he mentored N.C. Wyeth and many others. Some of the many features include sixteen original fireplaces, random-width original pine flooring, soaring ceilings with plaster moldings, 10 bedrooms, wrap-around verandas, and a center hall staircase certain to have welcomed Chadds Ford's finest. Flooded with natural light, it's easy to imagine why Andrew Wyeth chose this setting to complete some of his most amazing portraits. Each room offers an experience, from the stately dining room with its original arched pocket door to the second and third story drawing rooms with their oversized windows overlooking Chester County's vistas. Perched atop the home is the glass-enclosed cupola, or Widow's Walk, immortalized by Wyeth in numerous works. Finally, there is a detached two-car garage with an income-producing carriage house apartment. Of the properties in Chadds Ford which Wyeth frequented for inspiration, Painter's Folly will be the last home offered for public sale.
