1850 Converted Barn

23 Bennetts Lane
Thornbury
Cheyney, Pennsylvania

Historic charm, modern living

This is a one in a million house. It combines historic charm with modern living convenience. It started in the 1850's as a dairy bank barn. It was converted to a home in the 1940's and has undergone numerous renovations in the time since; the most recent being in 2005/2006.

The floor-plan of the house allows for flexibility. There is an option for a master suite on either floor. The lower level has a complete separate living space, including a 2nd kitchen and family room and could be used for in-laws, au pairs, or just as additional living space. A wall of windows in the living room brings in natural light throughout. The gourmet kitchen has stainless steel high end appliances including a 5 burner cooktop, double ovens and a warming drawer. The granite island is huge and has storage on both sides and is perfect for setting up buffets. The dining room has a large Butler's pantry including a wet bar.

But the best features of the house are architectural elements from the barn days. There is a solid stone wall in the kitchen, 2 story ceiling with wood beams in the living room, a Genuine barn door on the lower level that use to be the bullpen And if it's outdoor space you crave, there is a romantic balcony off of the living room, a newer deck off of the family room and the best of all: a huge flagstone courtyard with a fireplace surrounded by stone walls ensuring maximum privacy.

You will feel like you are in Italy! The location is very convenient in Thornbury Township (check out the low taxes), but the feeling is that you live in a private paradise.
