Property Description

Marlbrook Barn is an idyllic country retreat, an eighteenth-century bank barn converted to a charming, light-filled home nestled on four beautifully rolling acres with towering shade trees, specimen plantings and a sparkling stream. Established around 1764, the property boasts features rarely available today, including wide-planked wood floors, a raised-panel fireplace wall, abundant millwork, and the barn’s original ceiling beams. With 4,500 square feet of living space, including four bedrooms and three and a half baths, there’s lots of room for company. A spacious living room is outfitted with a wood-burning fireplace, built-in cabinets and a bar. A bank of windows with a Palladian arch overlooks the grounds. The lower-level media room is an ideal place to gather with family and friends. A large screened porch runs most of the length of the back of the house and is accessible to the pool. Surround sound runs throughout the house and on the upper deck, screened porch and around the pool. The chef’s kitchen is outfitted with two wall ovens, a Wolf range, two dishwashers, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, a Dacor microwave, soft-close custom cabinets, soapstone counters, and an over-sized divided soapstone farm sink. The kitchen is flanked by a breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling and an auxiliary space that’s strategically sited for entertaining, with a wine fridge, built-in cupboards and a powder room. A cozy library with a beamed ceiling, gas fireplace and custom cabinetry has cherry hardwood floors. An open-air deck, accessible through two sets of French doors in the formal dining room, offers spectacular vistas of the acreage. A sumptuous main bedroom suite features a large walk-in closet with laundry area, and a luxurious bath with sunken tub, custom tilework, rain shower, double vanity, linen closet, and terra cotta floors. Twenty-first century amenities include updated baths, insulated windows, modern hot water heating, central air, and new roofs with architectural shingles. There are two detached two-car garages, one was recently upgraded with Hardie cement-plank siding and features second-floor guest quarters. Marlbrook Barn is an exceptionally private setting that encompasses velvet expanses of grass, mature trees, a flower garden bordered by a stone wall, and a stone walkway that meanders through plantings of blooms and flowering shrubs. The acreage can be subdivided. Despite its peaceful location in Unionville’s hunt country, this sylvan retreat is a short drive to the shops and restaurants of Kennett Square and an easy commute to Wilmington.
