37 Compass Rd Public remarks Updated 8.3.2019Historic Stone Farmhouse and Barn on 3 acres is graced with mature trees and beautiful landscaping, and overlooks open pasture and fields. The home has been carefully restored and was a past participant on the prestigious Chester County Day Tour. The stone house features a cedar shake roof, wood floors-some original, re-sawn barnwood, and thick stone walls with cheeked windows. You will be impressed by the fireplaces in the living room, family room, and a walk-in fireplace in the dining room. The floor plan flows nicely and includes two entrances. The second entrance foyer floor is PA flagstone. The house and barn are well situated on the property with a large front yard and two expanses that can be used for pastures or recreation. The barn includes a one car garage, workshop area, room for animals and a second-floor storage area. This is an ideal property for someone looking for a house with character, space for animals or hobbies and at a comfortable distance from neighbors. As a bonus, the property is within walking distance of the Sadsbury Woods Preserve. Natural Lands Trust manages the 508 acres Preserve which includes walking trails. Living here you can have the best of both worlds; a country setting which is convenient to the Rt 30 bypass for commuting or shopping. The house has great history - one of many stories told is that in the 1930~s the house was occupied by a father and two sons. Avid fox hunters, the men offered opportunities to people from the city to join a hunt. Three dozen hunting dogs were kept in the barn. Interestingly enough, they also provided the fox to be hunted. In order for the dogs not be aroused by the scent of the fox, the men found it necessary to keep the fox in the second-floor front bedroom of the house!
