A rare opportunity is available to purchase 'Brooklands', an elegant private estate on approximately 38 acres. The original house dates back to 1769 with a large addition designed by Perves, Cope & Stewart, completed in the late 1930's by John Frederick Lewis, Jr., a prominent Philadelphian who hired Perves to create a country retreat for his family and to reflect the style of the times. Currently owned by his grandchildren, the house is steeped in history and still lends itself to gracious entertaining. The main house is approximately 11,000 sq.ft. with exceptional gardens. The entrance hall with its stunning curved staircase flows into an enormous formal living room and sunroom, complete with wet bar and access to a stone veranda. The original portion has its own charm with an antique woodstove in the kitchen and a spacious dining room with two fireplaces. The property also includes a large converted barn with two apartments. The barn is great for entertaining, includes large stone fireplace. There is also a charming rental cottage and a beautiful in ground pool. Offering picturesque views of meadows, mature woods and streams.
