Idyllic gardens and English country elegance describe 221 Spring Road, an 18,517-square-foot manor home located in Pennsylvania’s scenic Chester County — a quiet community in close proximity to Philadelphia by train. Built to entertain, the stone structure of the 18.8-acre estate, originally built in 1755, was expanded upon in 2002 by noted American architect R. Brognard Okie to include bespoke finishes, stonework restoration and Parisian wood paneling. In addition to its six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, the European-style estate also offers seven fireplaces, an imported French floating limestone staircase, tennis and basketball courts, a pool, pond and 17th-century fountain.

Previously listed at $6.2M, the property will sell without reserve in cooperation with Melodie Kahr of Kurfiss Sotheby’s International Realty and Niki Higgins of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
“Set amid beautifully planned formal gardens, stone retaining walls and rolling lawns, this stone and frame European-style manor home is grand in scale but offers intimate spaces for casual living,” Kahr stated. “The auction is sure to attract sophisticated buyers who will appreciate its attention to detail.”

“You get a unique opportunity when you start anew with a very old farmhouse. We took everything down to the original walls and we built from there,” added the seller, Mike Kirby. “Not only do you have this endless natural setting that is completely private, but you can go from being very active to just relaxing. It’s just a beautiful place to be.”
