"Halcyon" is an Idyllic estate dating back to the 1800's in a treasured Chadds Ford setting. Built by famed Isaac Gilpin, it was the former residence of noted Sellers Hoffman, who was the prosperous proprietor of the Grist Mill upon which the world famous Brandywine River Museum now rests. "Halcyon" features details associated with estates of its era, with intricate woodwork and moldings, chestnut, pine and pecan flooring, deep window sills, exposed beams, and working fireplaces. There are three floors of formal and informal spaces with five or six bedrooms, and five bathrooms (three full, two partial). Enjoy meadows filled with birds and flowers, established perennial gardens, a sublime patio/terrace, a placid shimmering pond and a restored bank barn with tack room and stalls for four horses. Serenity and privacy are yours to enjoy every day while enjoying the convenience of upscale shopping and dining just around the corner and easy access to major roadways to the cities of Philadelphia or Wilmington, and the bucolic villages of Chadds Ford, or Greenville and Centerville, De. The kitchen has been updated and includes stainless appliances and granite counters along with a beautiful half circle top window overlooking the grounds. Formal spaces combine with informal to create a picture perfect panorama of charm, history and serenity. This property also has subdivision possibilities.
