Malvern Bank House of the Week: Stately Home Built in 1740 in Downingtown

Mark Hostutler

A stately home set on a 4.2-acre lot with seven bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms is available for sale in Downingtown.

Having twice been featured on the Chester County Historic House Tour, the property was once part of a Penn Grant to Thomas Green in 1733. The original farmhouse was constructed in 1740.

The many highlights inside include an expansive foyer with original hardwood floors, formal living and dining rooms with custom built-ins, period-specific moldings, and fireplaces. Also, the family room has an abundance of windows and an additional fireplace.

The updated kitchen features exposed brick, a center island with bar seating, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances, while the old root cellar has been converted into a wine cellar.

Meanwhile, the upper two levels are home to seven bedrooms, three of which have en-suite bathrooms.

The grounds feature a detached carriage house with hot tub, electric heat, wood stove, and a full bath and also offer breathtaking views with an adjoining pond.

Read and see more of this house at 281 North Guthriesville Road, listed for $994,900, on here.
