Property Description

Abutting the stunning Bryn Coed Farm 500+ acres Natural Lands Preserve, and set on 57.4 very private acres, Burning Tree Farm offers a rare opportunity to acquire a large historic equestrian property, with picturesque views of pastures, woods, and rolling hills. This sought after location is surrounded by more than 2,000 acres of conserved ground while offering convenient access to the Northern and Western Philadelphia suburbs and major highways. Burning Tree Farm itself is unrestricted (other than Act 319) and will yield a minimum of 20 possible building lots which makes it possible to put a great restrictive easement on the property. Privately set, the property offers magnificent views in every direction and the home overlooks a small stream and springs that could maintain a large pond. The home's Living Room and Dining Room's walls and ceilings feature exquisitely detailed woodwork which is attributed to the celebrated American woodworking artist, Wharton Esherick. All of the walls in these two rooms are faced in vertical boards, artfully crafted in unique varying widths, and the ceilings exhibit exposed beams. The spacious Living Room features a beautiful fireplace surrounded by rich built-in shelving and storage cabinets, and the adjoining Dining Room completes with a grand walk-in fireplace. An absolutely stellar, all cherry pegged staircase curves gracefully to the second level. A large (18'x23') Kitchen and Powder Room finishes the main level. Upstairs are four bedrooms and a bath. This beautiful home offers protected views from every room. Burning Tree Farm is a long-standing operating horse farm, with a magnificent Barn (some of which dates back to the late 1700's) and includes a very large post and beam bank barn addition constructed in the mid 1990's. The Barn offers 15 box stalls, a large feed area, a wash stall, and a spacious Tack Room with an adjoining Kitchenette. The eight double-fenced pastures are well designed in various sizes and there is also a ten-acre pasture with a large three-bay turn-out shed. Included is a very large (150' x 325') all-weather outdoor arena, with an efficient drainage system. Beyond the pastures, there are 25+ acres that are currently farmed. This remarkable property must be seen to be appreciated.
