Sprawling across 18+ acres of farmland and bordering the Natural Lands Trust, there are 10 structures that comprise 404 S Swedesford Road. A country gate opens to a quarter-mile-long driveway with views of open fields and a pond. Along the woodline, there are 1,000+ trees and shrubs, including 190 ornamental trees that have been planted by the current owners.
The main house offers elements that date back to 1698 with several additions accomplished since then. Its most recent renovation was designed to maximize surrounding views, create purposeful spaces, and build a kitchen fit for pastry chefs and professionals.
In the foyer, a powder room is nestled underneath the main staircase. To the right, there is a living room with reclaimed wood floors and a fireplace, a sunroom with french doors overlooking the home’s backyard, and an office with beamed ceilings and another fireplace. On the left side of the foyer, you’ll find a formal dining room that opens to the back patio and an eat-in kitchen with commercial grade appliances, a wood-burning pizza oven, two large islands, and a butler’s pantry. The family room, mudroom, and second half bath sit nearby.
Five spacious bedrooms and four full baths encompass the second and third floors. The primary suite on the second level boasts a fireplace, wood floors, and beamed ceilings. Its ensuite bathroom has a double steam shower, dual marble vanity, built-ins, and a large walk-in closet with a vanity area. For added convenience, there is a second-floor laundry room. Just outside of the main house, sits an in-ground pool and a detached garage.
Follow the path of maple trees to find a stunning farmstead enhanced by the conversations of chickens, cows, and sheep. The pasture blends sycamore, black elms, black gum trees, golden larches, and willow oaks. With red stone, six stalls, and an attached chicken coop, the barn has been meticulously maintained. Moreover, former stables have been converted into a fitness center with a half bathroom.
The silo apartment house accounts for two units with separate entrances. Upstairs, the first apartment has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a study. Downstairs, the second apartment has one bedroom, one bathroom, and an enclosed porch. Another separate apartment spans three levels with three bedrooms.
An independent office building showcases a renovated kitchen with wine storage, beamed ceilings, and hardwood floors. The solar innovated greenhouse has been divided to feature a growing environment with monitored systems and automated watering, and a prep room with workspace and a custom concrete sink.
Two remaining structures include a storage shed and a large log cabin that is currently being utilized to make soap. It features high beamed ceilings, industrial appliances, and two storage rooms. Located in Montgomery County and part of Upper Gwynedd Township, the premises are still within easy reach of attractions and schools.
