    Description

    +G+Kerwalls+G- may be the most impressive home on the market today. Set on two parcels and a full acre in the Borough of West Chester+GGs sought after Northeast quadrant, this peerless property includes 5 bedrooms, 3.2 baths and all the luxurious amenities of the modern world, with all of the elegance, class and charm of a world gone by. Built in 1925 by a woman who modeled it after her family+GGs ancestral home in France, Kerwalls features architectural components imported from France and England such as the main staircase, Great Room flooring, and several mantels. The French Norman style home, with its steep wood shake roof, was built with fieldstone collected from the remains of two nearby mills and one of two found mill wheels is used as a soothing water feature in a stone wall. The second is in the front walkway. One of the home+GGs former owners was the founder of the West Chester Garden Club and her influence remains in the gorgeous landscaping which creates numerous intimate spots and ensures the privacy of the property. The gardens provide the gracious feel of a country estate. The current owners undertook an extensive, award-winning, eight month long renovation. The renovation included full-house ducting for a 15-ton WaterFurnace geothermal heating and cooling system and installing a 10.4kW solar array with online monitoring. They also repointed the entire stone exterior and undertook a full-house replastering and painting project. Not deterred by arduous tasks, they also rebuilt the entire substructure under the Kitchen, basement to ceiling, that included the repointing and parging of the basement and also the two-car garage. Once completed, the owners added an incredible gourmet kitchen with exposed stone walls, soapstone counters, Tasmanian Blackwood breakfast bar, and high-end appliances including a Wolf 48+G- gas range, Miele dishwasher, and SubZero refrigerator. Numerous practical improvements were also made, such as moving the Laundry to the second level, adding a first-floor powder room and mudroom +G- the list goes on! The home+GGs interior displays its European roots with high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, eight fireplaces, gorgeous wood flooring throughout, and more. Outside, park-like features that make Kerwalls so unique include a grass courtyard with stone walls, three water features, an outdoor fireplace, and a rear patio with a fountain. Come home to your own private park within easy walking distance of downtown West Chester! Unparalleled in its quality and unique features, and a winner of the prestigious West Chester Downtown Foundation+GGs award for the owner+GGs fabulous renovation work, Kerwalls represents the best of West Chester and Chester County living.
