Welcome home to 280 Moore Rd- your own private retreat on 15+ acres in Downingtown School District featuring a 3000+ square foot contemporary style home, 5 stall Amish built barn with tack room, heated industrial shop building with additional workshop, and 2 story office building. This property sets secluded down a private drive yet minutes from all the conveniences the area has to offer- shops, restaurants, major transportation routes, Marsh Creek State Park and less than a mile from Shamona Creek Elem and Marsh Creek 6th grade center. The possibilities here are endless. Walk up the brick walkway to the 4bedroom, 3 full bath home. The unfinished house, featuring 2x6 construction, was completed when the current owners purchased the property in 1994. This included new electrical, plumbing, insulation, windows, doors, trim and basement flooring. Recent updates include new roofs (2012), water heater (2016), heating system (2016) and well pump (2017). The first floor features a family room with solid Hickory hardwood flooring(2013), 17’ vaulted ceiling, skylights and a wood burning stove(2011) which heats the house in all but the coldest days. There is also a dining room, pantry closet and a large kitchen with breakfast area. The kitchen has an abundance of custom cabinetry and stainless appliances. There is also another room currently used for an office but can also be used as a 4th bedroom. A full bath and laundry room with interior access to the oversized 2 car garage complete this floor. Upstairs there is a large owners’ suite with Jacuzzi and custom 60x36, 2 sided glass shower, 2 other generous sized bedrooms, a hall bath and a 4th room which can be used as an office, a bedroom (just needs a closet), walk-in closet, exercise room or nursery. The expansive unfinished basement provides plenty of storage space and bilco doors to the outside. Outside, there curved brick walks and a beautiful herringbone brick patio for you to relax and enjoy the tranquil views of the large organic garden. The property is relatively flat and allows plenty of uses- one of which is for horses and farm animals. The barn (1994) has 5 12x12 run-in stalls, a tack room, 8’ concrete isle, a full hay loft, water and electric. There are 2 pastures- one is 2.5 acres and the other is almost 6- the current owner hays the large pasture and everything has been well maintained. The 40x60 heated industrial building/machine shop with 14 foot ceilings perfect for a hobby enthusiast or to store boats, cars etc. There is also a connected 16x40 heated workshop with skylights and windows. The 2 story office building is 1532 sqft. The owners ran a small business from this building and has electric, water, sewage, a separate heat pump per floor, numerous office suites, a meeting room, a kitchenette, and a bathroom. The building could be converted to other uses, such as an in-law suite. This property is a hidden gem in bucolic Chester County. It is protected by ACT 319. SUBDIVISION is possible without losing ACT 319 status . All buildings are connected by data wiring and a security system, including fire detectors in barn. With so many possibilities, it is highly advisable that buyers considering the property for anything other than their own residential space should do their due diligence about permitted uses. Sellers are flexible with settlement. Do not miss this opportunity. .
