Unique opportunity for multiple single family dwellings on one picturesque parcel. Property could potentially be turned into a 2-3 unit short term rental unit (see municipal requirements). Short drives to Kennett Square, Longwood Gardens, United Sports, Marshallton, and West Chester make it an ideal location for this application. Live in one home and rent the other? Have a family member you love but not enough to share the kitchen? Looking for a home that provides a unique escape from reality? Something that has a sense of openness but also private? You will not want to look any further than 1028 Lieds Rd. This is the site of the Gaffney House, 2010 AIA Gold Medal winner, designed by famed architect Peter Bohlin and your chance to own an architectural masterpiece. This modest home was designed with the intention of creating a space defined by the mood and atmosphere, with regards to the natural landscape of the property. From being built inside the walls of an old burnt down barn to an angled barn beam supporting the second floor, allowing a freestanding 2 story concrete column, every detail of this home has been meticulously thought over and curated to preserve the intended essence of the architectural design. The 2 bedroom, 1 bath 2,000 sq ft home draws on traditional farmhouse elements. Overlooking the 9.8 acre property, including the courtyard, meadow, and distant woods are massive windows that flood the home with natural light each morning. These windows have been brought up to date with state of the art energy efficient glass, power blinds, allowing for additional privacy if needed. Other modern accommodations have been updated throughout the home with a propane fireplace, eucalyptus hardwood floors and mahogany handrails and trim, and new stainless steel appliances. On the second floor, you will find the bathroom complete with a walk in shower and oversized vanity, as well as the bedroom. The bedroom ceiling has a replica of a 15th century Italian style palace. The third floor of the home is where you will find the loft. This is perfect for either a secondary bedroom or to use it as a study. The second home on the property is a 2 bed, 2 bath 2,380 sq ft 19th century farmhouse. This home has recently been renovated to include a working artist studio (20x28 ft and flooded with northern light) and office/gallery, with a full bath and laundry. The other side of the house is an additional one bedroom apartment complete with kitchen and laundry facilities, with an independent entrance. Both homes on the property have independent Generac generators, and HVAC systems. Contact the listing team for more information, and inquiries about showings!
