About Pennsylvania

img

Philadelphia is known for its Revolutionary War-era historical sites like Valley Forge, its large cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, its farming regions, some occupied by the Amish, and a (once)-strong industrial history.

With equally large swaths of cities and towns as fields and mountains, Pennsylvania is a rich and varied state, as well as a worthy travel destination. Pennsylvania is bordered by the states of New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, and Ohio.

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is a geographically diverse state with a Great Lake on one shore and a major seaport on the other. The climate of Pennsylvania is pleasant, with cold, often snowy winters, mild to hot, humid summers, and gorgeous green springtimes, and most notably, spectacular displays of colorful autumn foliage.

A study released in the summer of 2003 by Penn State University shows that Pennsylvania's horse industry is massive and thriving, contributing big bucks to the state economy. And it's preserving more than a million acres of state farmland.

$8.2 billion or 18 percent of agribusiness sales, the state's largest industry, can be attributed to horses. The $8.2 billion refers to investments including land, buildings, machinery, etc., and does not include the value of the horses themselves, an additional $1.3 billion.

The state is home to more than 220,000 horses.

The study shows the total value of Pennsylvania's horses more than doubled since 1990, from $620 million to $1.3 billion. The industry's total investment in land, horses, buildings, trucks, trailers, tack and other assets, is a whopping $9.5 billion.

Not included in the study was money spent by residents of other states and countries who come to Pennsylvania to ride or compete. The Pennsylvania National Horse Show estimates that out of state competitors spend $40 million each year on hotels, meals, shopping, and more during that show alone.

Among the study's most interesting findings is that the amount of land devoted to horses totals 1,140,000 acres, valued at $4.8 billion.

Cheshire Hunt Countryside with Endless Riding!!!!

Coatesville, Chester County, Pennsylvania


Known as “The Cottage”, this is one of the most charming properties one can find! The views are truly breathtaking over the former King Ranch known today for its vast land conservation effort! This area is among the leading preservation accomplishments on the entire East Coast. It is the perfect place to call home for many reasons. The quintessential, charming home was originally designed by respected John Milner, known for his knowledge of historic architecture and preservation. The very reputable, high-quality builder Griffiths Construction built the home. There have been features added in recent years completed by the equally regarded Richard Buchanan of Archer Buchanan Architects and Curt Bagnall, builder. The attention to details can be noted throughout as you are immediately absorbed in its quality and warmth. The 18th century historically correct features include wooden beamed ceilings, field stone walk-in fireplace and windows among numerous other details. The home is a wonderful blend of old-world charm and convenience for todays living. The Sunroom is specially designed to take advantage of the dramatic views of the stunning countryside. It has hidden features of remote controlled blinds, radiant floor heating and gas fireplace for those who desire the added comfort. The gourmet kitchen is designed for one who appreciates aesthetics and function as it has granite stone counters combined with custom wood cabinetry, and outfitted with high-end appliances including Bosch, Thermador and SubZero. Even the staircase has its own charm which draws you to the second floor with its two bedrooms each with full bath. One bath has a claw footed tub too. The rooms feature a cottage-like, cozy sloped ceiling. There is an added bonus room with a separate entrance. Details continue throughout even for the four-legged family members since they have their own pet-bathing station on the lower level as well. The 2 bay, heated garage is equipped with a Tesla charging station. There are many cozy areas to enjoy not only inside this wonderful home but also outside! One can enjoy reading a book or entertaining family and friends on one of the brick porches, or the flagstone terrace overlooking the valley or by the tranquil, heated pool with quaint pool house. The property is further complimented with a field stone potting shed, stone retaining walls and simple yet beautiful gardens. The quality and charm is also seen in the recently built barn. It was designed, for the horse person, by a professional horse person. Built by King Construction, the features include: 4 stalls, center aisle, tack room (with laundry), office (with beverage cooler) and powder room. There is a lovely designed, one bedroom apartment with full bath above. The galley kitchen includes granite counters, stainless appliances and stainless farm sink. The added details on the barn are the indoor, oversized-rig parking, bay complete (with RV pumping and electrical hookup), hay storage, 2 stall run-in shed and Nelson, heated waterers. In addition to a whole house generator, the barn also has its own whole barn generator too. The property’s almost 30 acres is under a Brandywine Conservation easement like many of its neighboring properties. It is a short hack or walk to The Laurels Preserve, a coveted 771 acre private preserve. It is also part of the Cheshire Hunt country and has endless riding in this coveted area. One can enjoy living on this property with its many features yet know major arteries, shopping, restaurants and town centers are minutes away. The Cottage is truly a special place for one who appreciates and desires a country way of living, while having access to today’s modern living conveniences!
