Constructed between 1859 and 1860 by Bayard Taylor for the princely sum of $15,000, Cedarcroft may be the most famous home in the tri-state area. A famous world traveler, Bayard Taylor was well known for both his travel books, literary works, and poetry. Legendary guests to Cedarcroft included Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Greenleaf Whittier, James Russell Lowell, and Horace Greeley. The construction of the home was said to have been overseen by Taylor himself who described the large brick Italianate home as “large and stately, simple in its forms, without much ornament … expressive of strength and ornament.” An adjoining brick carriage house needs total restoration. The first floor features 13’ ceilings, an Entry Hall with a grand staircase to the upper level, a spacious Living Room and Library, both with handsome fireplaces plus a large Dining Room, also with a gorgeous fireplace. The Kitchen is reached from both the Entry Hall and the Dining Room and will require a total refurbishment. Off the Kitchen is a Mud Room with a laundry hookup and access to an attached two car garage. Upstairs is a Master Suite with a fireplace, private bath, and large closet/dressing area. There is another large bedroom with a fireplace and five additional bedrooms, some of which could easily have walls removed to make larger spaces. This level has a total of four bathrooms which are all in need of total refurbishment. The Tower is accessed from this level. The third floor has a full bathroom and additional bedrooms/storage rooms plus the air handling equipment for the home’s central air conditioning. The basement is accessed from the Garage and houses the home’s oil heater, hot water heater, and electrical panels. There is also a root cellar that awaits restoration into a wonderful wine cellar! Consisting of two parcels set on 3.7 acres in the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District, this historic home is truly a one of a kind - full of potential awaiting restoration to its former glory. Rarely does such a high-profile home come on the market. Because restoration is needed and this is a sale by an estate, we are offering the property in "As-Is” condition. Please see agent for details about taxes, etc. Property address AKA Gatehouse Drive.

In March 2008, the current owners bought "Folly Hill Winery" and then proceeded to close the business in order to build a state-of-the-art winery and vineyard over the next 4 years. With the extensive expert assistance from internationally renowned consultants Lucy Morton viticulture consultant and John Levenberg winery/winemaker consultant, the world class winemaking property was conceived and built. The “Red Lion Vineyard” initially had 4 acres that had been planted over 10 years prior with 50% Chardonnay and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon. After two years of significant efforts and cost, the tough decision was made in 2010 to replace all the Cabernet Sauvignon with 6 different clones of Chardonnay. Today, these vines produce award winning “naked” unoaked chardonnay, oaked reserve chardonnay, and Méthode champenoise chardonnay. The current state-of-the-art winery was designed by John Levenberg in collaboration with Vinquip of South Africa, who had built major and boutique wineries in South Africa, Europe, South America and US, with blanketed temperature controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks, catwalk, and gravity flow piping to fill the French oak barrels below in the temperature-controlled barrel room. In addition, the design incorporated newly constructed crush pad, bottling room, wine laboratory, and sparkling wine ‘cave’. The winery currently produces on average 2500 cases per year but can produce up to 4000+ cases annually. The customer facing areas were designed with much thought and design. The external plantings were designed by Michael Petrie, a Philadelphia award winning garden designer. The two stunning artsy rustic tasting rooms were designed by artist founder Lele Galer. To accommodate the large number of patrons, two external decks were also built. This award-winning vineyard and winery have won over 150 awards, including prestigious international blind tasting competitions, such as Gold Medals in the San Francisco Chronical Competition. The winery currently has over 70 Wine Club members and many loyal customers from Chester County, Delaware County, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Maryland. There is an internationally acclaimed Airbnb separate 1 bedroom apartment on the property that has been written up in national and international magazines, built from a building that was formerly an icehouse and then a garage, overlooking the vineyard. In recognition of the historical significance of the property- a historical placard from the Chester County Historical Society marks the site for its importance leading up to the Battle of the Brandywine. In addition, the current owners discovered that British General Howe used the original house as an office following his victory at the Battle of the Brandywine and his Hessian troops camped at the current site of the Red Lion Vineyard. For many decades later the site was a hunting lodge and a famous regular visitor was Babe Ruth, in his journeys to and from Baltimore to New York city.
