  • DESCRIPTION

    Situated on over 11 acres, Squire Cheyney Estate is listed on the national register of historic places and showcases one of the finest architectural examples of its time. The Estate is adjacent to the Squire Cheyney Farm Park, a 30 acre conserved property in Thornbury Township. Rehabilitated in partnership with the Preservation Alliance. During the renovations, a piece of baseboard from one of the bedrooms was discovered. Etched on it was Thomas Cheyney, 1797, My House. Many original characteristics have been preserved while adding modern amenities like a large open kitchen with granite countertops and upscale stainless appliances, and en suite bathrooms with heated tile floors. The Main House is the original Squire's home. The 1st floor of this house currently serves as a formal living room and dining room. The floors are birch, and there are partially exposed beams with detailed beading, and the 2 original stone fireplaces, which have been converted to natural gas. Hidden in the floor is a remote control, mechanized trap door with access to the cellar, which has been painstakingly restored, and could serve a variety of uses. Throughout the home, you will notice the deep inset Jeld-Wenn windows. 2015 addition features the open concept kitchen and family room with soaring 20-foot ceilings, and a spiral staircase to the loft for additional gathering room. Chestnut floors, pot filler, wine cooler, and an abundance of cabinetry will attract the amateur or professional entertainer. This family room features a 3rd fireplace and is filled with natural light from the many windows and recessed LEDs. On the opposite side of the main house, the master bedroom suite occupies the first floor of the 18th c. & 1950's additions to the property. The master bathroom features exposed stone wall, oval freestanding tub, and envious walk-in shower. Upstairs, there are 3 guest rooms with en-suite baths. One guest room has a 3rd floor loft space which could serve as a 5th bedroom. Off the back porch, residents have some of the prettiest views in the county. Upgrades meet or exceed modern housing codes. 3-car garage adjoined by covered breezeway. The 6,800 sq ft barn has been restored, including a total roof replacement. The barn has endless possibilities: studio, livestock, horses, a basketball court, driving range, wine cellar, and/or home office. Featured on promos for HGTV. No subdivision or additional construction on the property. No further exterior changes.
