$815,000 520 Broad Run Rd, West Chester, PA 19382
Once upon a time, there was a slice of heaven in Marshallton, Chester County that is now up for grabs. It is one of the most beautiful and coveted parts of the county, and its well-preserved parcels rarely became available for purchase as they were most often passed down from generation to generation.

The property is manageable at almost 22 acres, consisting of two parcels. One parcel was 20.1 acres, and the other was just under .5 acres, known as Tax Parcel 50-09-0014. The Act 319 registered parcel offered an amazingly low tax benefit to its owner.

There is a charming 3-bedroom residence on the property, complete with a wood-burning fieldstone fireplace and majestic views from every window. There are three additional buildings including a bank barn -garden shed/covered patio, a livestock stall barn, and an original stone spring house.

The current owner inherited a fully drafted conceptual architecture drawing for a whole house renovation including septic permits, giving the next homeowner the option to either go for the gusto or maintain the delightful original residence.

The property is divided almost directly in half by Broad Run Stream, with one half being well-manicured and grass and the other half being untouched forest, perfect for every sportsman. There is even a tree stand overlooking the stream for avid hunters.

The picturesque land is just a mile away from the Marshalton Inn and Four Dogs Tavern in charming downtown Marshalton and less than 10 minutes from popular downtown West Chester and just 15 min to Kennett Square, Downingtown with easy access to 322, 202 and Route 1. It is the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to step back in time and live their dream of owning their own piece of nature.

In fact, for those who have an affinity with the natural world, this is the opportunity of a lifetime to fully realize their dream.
