Attention history buffs, b&b dabblers and business owners – Here is your chance to own a piece of Chester County history. Situated on 3.6 acres and built by Samuel Painter in 1856, this Italianate style villa has long been a part of Chadds Ford history.

Some of the many features include sixteen original fireplaces, random-width original pine flooring, soaring ceilings with plaster moldings, 10 bedrooms, wrap-around verandas, and a center hall staircase certain to have welcomed Chadds Ford’s finest.
