The coveted community of Chester Springs is a highly desirable destination for those seeking a pastoral lifestyle, where homes offer spacious interiors and abundant property. Such appealing characteristics and the prestige of one of the most well-regarded and award-winning school districts in the state can be found via this beautiful colonial home at 705 Orchard Valley Road in the Pickering Spring Farm neighborhood. Crafted by Moser Builders, this Annandale Traditional expanded model features a stunning stone and siding exterior. Plus, with sweeping lawns (three-quarters of an acre) bordered in the rear by wooded “forever wild” preserved land, and a cul-de-sac setting, this is arguably one of the best lots in the subdivision. With well over 3,000 square feet of above grade living space (tax records may not include the additional square footage the owners added during construction) and a beautifully finished walk-out basement, the entertainment potential is unsurpassed. From the classic front door (sidelights and transom window), step into a gracious hardwood-floored two story Foyer displaying two coat closets and a turned staircase. The formal Living Room features carpeting, crown molding and French doors to a dedicated office with beautiful built-in cabinetry, recessed lighting and a view to the back yard. A formal Dining Room offers hardwoods, crown molding, chair rail and picture frame wainscoting. Casual gatherings will be hosted in the Family Room, which features a wood burning fireplace, vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting and a wall of windows overlooking the private back yard. The heart of the home, a chef’s kitchen, is beautifully appointed for creating family meals or entertaining. White cabinets, granite counters, tumbled marble backsplash, ceramic tile floors, stainless steel appliances, pantry closet and recessed lighting provide a neutral palette where friends will gather. For more casual dining, the Breakfast Room has great space and provides a slider to the Deck. There’s a Powder Room, Mud Room (wainscoting, exit to side yard paver patio) and Laundry Room (exit to deck, coat closet, folding counters) on the main level as well. The second floor features four generously proportioned carpeted bedrooms, including an incredibly spacious Primary Suite and sitting room (huge L-shaped walk-in closet, ceiling fan, and gorgeous ensuite Bath with jetted tub, double vanity and stall shower). The finished walk-out basement has been designed with great functionality, thanks to a fifth bedroom, full bath, workout area (gym floor), two recreation spaces, and generous storage. The beautiful paver patio is accessible from this level through the sliding door. The newer roof, septic system and HVAC permit peace of mind for those big ticket components. Enjoy all that the Chester Springs area has to offer: the Mill at Anselma, Historic Yellow Springs Village, Marsh Creek State Park, Pickering Creek, Larkin Covered Bridge, Chester Valley Trail, the SALT Performing Arts Center, plus fine restaurants, wineries, and proximity to the PA turnpike.
