1500 POCOPSON RD, WEST CHESTER, PA 19382 (MLS # 1001665818)
The year is 1920. World War I officially ended. The Chandlers, a wealthy family from NY are busy putting the finishing touches on their new country estate. Nestled in a quiet corner of Chester County, PA sits Padua Estate. A luxurious villa situated on over 30 acres of prime real estate in the Unionville Chadds Ford School District. Enjoy hunting, fishing, horseback riding and more, right outside your back door. More than 14,000 square feet of living space with 16 bedrooms, 10 full baths, two half baths & 6 fireplaces, Padua Estate represents an opportunity for a very discriminating buyer to own a piece of history and architecture that rivals some of the best properties found anywhere in the world. How did Padua Estate get its name? After nearly a decade of parties, enjoyment and continued family prosperity, the Chandler's decided to donate the property to the CatholicChurch. This may have been the family's way of "giving back" as the rest of the country slipped more deeply into the Great Depression. Many priests at the time had just served in the War and were now trying to help their fellow man as the country dealt with the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrialized world. The Chandler's felt their paradise could benefit not only the church, but America as a whole. Not wasting a minute of their time with the donated property, the priests immediately went to work. The living room once enjoyed by the Chandler's became the Chapel for the priests. A notable and still present fixture to this day was the construction of the Stations of The Cross. Over the next 2 decades Padua Estate was the place that Bishops, Cardinals and priests from all over the world had come to recharge themselves.The year is now 1975. It's a feel good time and these new owners are feeling great. They not only embrace Padua Estate, but once they look out over the gardens from the second floor Master Bedroom balcony?they fall in love! Padua Estate has a new caretaker. Over the next 40+ years the new owners and their guests enjoy the beauty, richness and history. 3 Generations are realized under one roof. From the roaring 20's to 70's and 80's, Padua Estate has hosted people from all over the world. From Titans and Captains of Industry to Presidents and Politicos, Cardinals and Bishops right down to the family member, Padua Estate has served them all. When only the best will do? location, schools, architecture, history, story. Padua Estate. If these walls could talk!
