    Description

    Welcome to this unique and charming stone home, steeped in history and located a stone's throw from Everhart Park in the Borough of West Chester. Actually located in East Bradford Township, it is close enough to walk into town and enjoy all the community activities of uptown, as well as shopping, restaurants,brew pubs,theatre,holiday festivities, parades & grower's market in warmer months. The darling 2 Bedroom, early 19th Century home is listed as #170 Class One Property in the township's Historic Resource Map. Situated on a beautiful 1.7 Acre property with Black Horse Run meandering through the rear of the land. The sunny side or rear lawn is the perfect spot for an organic garden of flowers & vegetables with a large garden shed conveniently located to store your tools. Much of the yard is fenced for privacy & the driveway will accommodate several cars. The current owners enjoy entertaining family and friends on the patio & yard - with plenty of room for games & picnicing. Along the creek is the shady, wooded area of the acreage, extending along the property line,allowing for more privacy. When built in 1825, the architectural style was pure Trinity - a room on each floor - starting at the lowest level( grade) to the top (3rd) level and connected by a spiral or turned staircase. Such was the case with 709 W.Miner originally, when at a point in the homes history, an addition was added, expanding the second floor to include a bedroom and bathroom; and on the lowest level a kitchen was added as well as a large 'keeping' room utilized today for entry, pantry, closets and laundry. Enter the home from the lovely patio side entry into the bright keeping/mud room/cathedral ceiling; thru to the white kitchen with lots of cabinetry & counter space. Notice the classic Chester County curved original window opening & peek into the original room -maybe the kitchen-with Brick Fireplace/woodstove, now a family room,with open beamed ceiling. You will find the turned staircase to lead you to the main or second level, also accessed from outside via the transom exterior front door.Notice the nooks and crannies, built-ins, shelving,mill work, mostly original & the beautiful Chester County windows t/o. Take 2 steps up to the addition containing 1 bedroom/closet, updated bathroom & hall closet. The upper third level has a bedroom with closets and access to the walk up attic. As you tour this historic home it is easy to imagine how life in West Chester was almost 200 years ago. The current owners have discovered many artifacts of life back then on their land and I'm sure more could be found. There is fresh paint throughout, new hot water heater & new dryer: oil tank & heating furnace updated over past few years; Low taxes & award winning school district also add to the desirable features of this historic home.
