The guest house serves as the perfect spot for friends and family
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity lies within an immense parcel of land located in Willistown Township.
The main house boasts a stone facade
Over 129 lush acres of natural landscapes and greenery go as far as the eye can see at Sweetwater Farm, located in historic Chester County. “It’s hard to pick a favorite vista when the property is situated in such a bucolic setting,” says the current owner. “From the winding, tree-lined driveway that leads to the house nestled between rolling hills to the spectacular views of the pond from every window, to the beautiful stable yard flanked by a stately magnolia tree presiding over the glistening pond and the distant fields beyond… just about every view is one to love.” Along with this, a 10-stall horse barn, five-stall colt barn, six fenced paddocks, nine-car garage and an updated two-bedroom guest house sit on the property—giving any future homeowner the chance to live an equestrian-filled lifestyle if desired. “[It’s] a stone’s throw from Radnor Hunt, one of the country’s oldest and most prestigious equestrian facilities,” the current homeowner adds.

Also on the property, a pond with a swimming dock, as well as true 360-degree, uninterrupted views of specimen trees and nature. It’s perfect for any conservation-minded, outdoor enthusiast. The main home, which expands to 9,000 square feet, exists in its own sector, where a private, circular driveway with a courtyard sets the tone. Inside, a front and back foyer invite guests inside to the entertaining spaces—most of which feature 10-foot ceilings with original moldings, millwork, built-ins and wide-plank oak floors from the home’s expansion in 1937 by Edward B. Smith. A large primary suite with his-and-her dressing rooms, as well as his-and-her bathrooms, provides the ultimate retreat. Seven additional bedrooms are dotted throughout the private second-floor wing of the abode, along with an expansive terrace that overlooks the fields and beyond. The kicker? Despite its countryside setting, the property is within close proximity to multiple shopping destinations, restaurants and world-class schools, all while being under 30 minutes from the city and Philadelphia International Airport. Talk about a prime location. Price upon request, 980 Providence Road, Newtown Square, Lavinia Smerconish, 610.547.6637, laviniasmerconish.com
