Description

Welcome to 491 Dowlin Forge Rd in the heart of UwchlanTownship. It's proximity to everything, ample acreage and sense of privacy makes it one of the more unique properties in the area. The tour of this property starts off with a beautiful driveway entrance that is inset from the road and welcomes you to this 2.6 acre lot with professional and extensive landscaping that is anchored by a private pond filled with mature Koi and twin weeping willow trees on both sides. The entire property is fully fenced including chicken wire for the protection of pets and family members alike, not to mention the security and privacy the new fencing and extensive evergreen plantings afford. There is landscaping, pond and patio lighting throughout this property that operate on timers and photocells which are also attached to the whole house (and property) standby generator. The exterior of this property at night is just as welcoming as it is in the daylight. Whether its relaxing by the pool or drinks around the pond side fire pit, the grounds are perfect for entertaining large groups of family and friends. The home itself is a classic Chester County stone farmhouse with beautiful recently repointed stone, new wood shutters and dates back to the late 1700s, but inside has been updated with every modern amenity. The tour of this home starts off with a wonderful covered porch with brick patio and beautiful lighting and opens up to a gourmet kitchen that has been completely updated recently with a large island with marble and soapstone countertops. The commercial grade Wolf double oven range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf microwave oven and Cove dishwasher are perfect for any gourmet cook. There is a brick wall behind the range and the kitchen opens to the great room with a massive original fireplace with a Vermont Castings Defiant wood burning stove capable of heating the entire house. This fireplace has a great stone hearth and original side warming and baking nooks. The great room also has an eating area with a wall of windows that looks out onto the pool, pond and the manicured grounds. There is an exit out to the cobblestone patio and in-ground pool area. On the first floor there is a formal dining room with fireplace in the original part of this home with original hardwood wide plank flooring and separate entrance, which could easily be converted to a master bedroom. Completing the main floor is a newly updated full bathroom with shower stall. The second floor has 4 bedrooms (one with a fireplace which would be a perfect home office) with original hardwood flooring that has all been refinished and a full hall bathroom. Then step up to the primary bedroom with an area for a small office or reading nook, a full closet with unique wood sliding doors and a full updated bathroom with a single sink with granite countertop. The basement has been updated and includes a nice bright laundry area and plenty of storage. The systems in this home and property have all been updated including a brand new Carrier central heating and cooling system with all new duct work, large commercial 75 gallon hot water heater, updated electrical and plumbing systems throughout and a 1,000 gallon (under ground) propane tank (leased). This home is within Award Winning Downingtown East School district including access to the STEM Academy. Low property taxes (Total of $8,300/year) and best part of the location of this property it is next to one of the entrances to Eagleview and within walking distance to Eagleview Town Center and all of the free concerts, farmers market and Restaurant Row.
