The prestigious watchmaker says “You never actually own a Patek Philippe. You merely look after it for the next generation.” The Megill family has cared for The Rokeby Stock Farm for nearly 40 years. They are ready for the next generation to bring their vision to this storied piece of Chester county history. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Chester county history as your very own family compound. Before there was Deer Pointe and Penn Oaks Golf Course, and before 926 was paved, the Rokeby Stock Farm made up large portions of Thornbury Township along South Concord Road. Many of the original main buildings of the farm sit quietly tucked away in a peaceful and private setting. Here, now is the opportunity to own a significant portion of it. This offering comprises two tax parcels totaling 4.6 acres, and includes a converted barn residence, a newly renovated historic home, and a large bank barn with complete exterior renovation. What was once the main barn of the estate was converted in 1986 to the personal luxury home of one of the area’s most well respected builders, Wayne C. Megill. This home provides over 5,700 sq ft of living area on three floors and features authentic exposed barn beams, natural stone details, and amazing windows with southern exposure and views of the pond. These features are the template for a buyer looking to bring their personal inspiration to update this home once again. Original stone walls create a courtyard with the home and the current Huntrise barn. The barn offers approximately 11,500 sq ft in its current configuration. There’s room for your cars, boats, driving range, basketball court, home office conference area, or personal training studio, just to name a few ideas. What was once the 19th century tenant house sits on the other side of the barn and courtyard and is now a new luxury home with 21st century construction technology, systems and finishes. Megill Homes recently completed the award-winning renovation. This home offers nearly 3,000 sq ft of living area on 2 floors. This home has a first floor primary bedroom suite. The only way to truly appreciate this property offering is to see it and discuss the opportunities with the Sellers who are custom builders and have been associated with this property for nearly 40 years and want to help bring your vision into reality. Residents will benefit from the highly acclaimed West Chester Area School District (Rustin/Stetson/Starkweather). Despite its private locale, it is surprisingly convenient to West Chester Boro, and to an abundance of shopping necessities (Giant, Wegmans, Whole Foods, Costco, Target, Terrain, Starbucks and more within 2 miles.) As Huntrise Lane is a private lane enjoyed by only 4 residences, all showings must be provided by the listing agent or the Seller, so please allow ample notice on showing requests. The Seller is a licensed real estate agent in PA.
