A recent Saturday dawned bright and sunny--a perfect day to ride around the countryside on the annual Chester County Day which benefits the Chester County Hospital.

We saw some lovely homes ranging from converted stone barns like Ivystone in West Chester to Victorian style homes like Acorn Hill in Malvern.

A popular spot at Acorn Hill was the horse

barn, with seemingly friendly horses munching on hay and attracting pats on the  Acorn hill horse

 

nose from visitors.     Greystone Hall in West Chester featured a

stone porte cochere as well as a Great Hall with stone fireplace.

Squire Cheyney farm had a magnificent bank barn with barn support

original dairy equipment on the lower level, plus it was

supported by a Chester County favorite of mine, tapered

stone columns (although it was just across the County line in Glen Mills).

 

Mapleshade in Malvern not only had a 150 year old red maple but the tree was moved to the site when the old style home was built in 2017. And I had a Monty Python flashback when I saw the table set up on the patio with fur pelts thrown over the backs of the chairs (perfect for Vikings singing the Spam song.)

Carolyn Roland-Historic Homes For Sale In Delaware and S. Chester County PA  Your market stands out with historic PA charm.  The pics in this post really showcase that.  The lovely maple reminds of a Northampton County sale this year of an 1840ish farmhouse with tree of similar age - simply astounding to stand under its magnificence.
