About This 1860 Farmhouse In Landenberg Pennsylvania
Welcome to Misty Hollow, an 1860 gem of a farmhouse built in the National Folk style on 5 luscious acres with mature plantings, specimen trees, and fabulous water features. The inside of the house has various additions that enhance its rustic charm but with all the modern conveniences. A highlight is a large primary bedroom with solid oak timber framing and lots of natural light.
The 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath fieldstone home features 4,300 square feet of unique above ground space. It has a resplendent stone interior and eye-catching woodwork throughout. Sliders off the cathedral-ceiling family room with fireplace lead to a great deck overlooking the property. Stainless appliances in the log- cabin-style eat-in kitchen. Very comfortable country living; heat pump, hot water and baseboard electric heat, a wood-burning stove and fireplaces; pedestal sinks, claw-foot bathtub, ceiling fans.
The entire property is protected by an automatic backup generator, and a brand- new state of the art septic system was recently installed by the owner. There is a stone-faced 2 car detached garage. A converted barn apartment has a track record of rental income, and is totally self- contained with 2 parking spaces outside the entrance gate. There is copious storage space both above and below the apartment. The bottom could also make an excellent work shop. A 3-sided horse or livestock shelter sits on a 1.8 acre portion of the property and has already received subdivision approval.
Misty Hollow is a one-of-a-kind place — Landenberg version of Frank Llyod Wright’s Fallingwater. The house is built partly over a seasonal waterfall that cascades into a pond with a fountain and ultimately spills into the Walnut Run and White Clay Creeks. The exterior and interior spaces place a strong emphasis on the harmony between man and nature with spectacular views from every window and its large outdoor decks and gazebo.
The main entrance works by automatic gate opener. The property is very private and surrounded by an abundance of open space in conservation and agriculture easements. An additional 6,000- plus acres of open space is a short distance away. The entrance to the White Clay Preserve is a short walk or drive with additional easy access to Middle Run and Fair Hill. The property is a hiker’s, mountain bikers or fly fisherman’s dream.
Misty Hollow was created as a sanctuary from lifes hustle and bustle but is also conveniently accessible to downtown Kennett Square, Hockessin, Newark, and Wilmington. The bucolic property sits in the Kennett Consolidated School District. Located in the historic district of old Landenberg and documented by New Garden Township Historic Commission and the University of Delaware, the oldest part of the house dates back to the 18 th century. New septic system currently being installed. Showings start November 9th.
