Extremely Private Location
Newlin Township is said to have more horses than people. This property is generally an area of high rolling farmland and forest. The property is protected by a conservation easement, as is over 60% of the Newlin Township, and also much of the Unionville community. The Property is close to the ChesLen Preserve, a 1,282 acre preserve, the Laurels Preserve, a 771 acre preserve carved out when the 5,367 acre King Ranch property was put into conservation easement. Running along the west branch of the historic Brandywine Creek, this property is the home to Sycamore Run, a feeder creek flowing through the woods and creating a privacy buffer for the land. The farm fields are extremely private and cannot be viewed from any road. The conservation easement is available upon request.
The Property is a single parcel consisting of land in Newlin Township and West Bradford Township to be sold together: 1) Chester County tax parcel 49-1-18.2C 97.23 acres, and 2) Chester County tax parcel 50-7-1 39.5 acres. There are two tax parcel numbers because the township line divides the property. This is a total of 136.73 acres. There are two reserved home sites. Agricultural buildings can be built on the preserved land. Equestrian facilities are agricultural buildings. The current real estate taxes for the Newlin parcel are $702.20 per year and for the West Bradford parcel $90.14 per year. YES, those are the real tax numbers. The low taxes are the result of Act 319 “Clean and Green.”
Two home sites have been reserved, one overlooking the Brandywine, and the other with private forest and field views. Both sites are within the award winning Unionville Chadds Ford School District. The sites may each have an apartment for help of family.
