Description

Charm, history, and opportunity can be found at this one-of-a-kind bed and breakfast minutes away from downtown West Chester and easily accessible to Philadelphia. Designed by the renowned Samuel Sloan and expertly constructed by William Baldwin in 1860, this special property was built to overlook the wooded two-acre Brandywine Valley. The venue's name, Faunbrook, was inspired by a weathervane that depicted a faun, a mythical half goat/half man known for creating wealth.Surrounded by quaint oak and chestnut trees, two fountains, a pond with waterfall, and a gazebo, your guests will surely be impressed by this Victorian property. The interior features seven grand guest rooms with two suites with fireplaces, one with large soaking tub, and all with en suite bathrooms. Monticello windows and mahogany millwork grace the large parlor space with an 1880's baby grand piano.The first floor also boasts a cozy library, dining room, and winter porch, with three fireplaces on first floor.In 1867, The Darlington family purchased this home and famously displayed Independence Day fireworks each year. Today, Faunbrook+GGs esteemed reputation makes it the perfect spot for overnight stays, intimate weddings, Memorial celebrations, holiday parties, and visits to West Chester University. Located three blocks from West Chester University, one mile from downtown West Chester, and 30 miles west of Philadelphia, 699 West Rosedale Avenue offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to its next discerning buyer.
