Property description

Old Fox Farm is a true equestrian's dream. Originally part of the Luce estate, this exceptional property offers 25 acres of preserved farmland with an approximately 4,500 square-foot residence featuring an updated kitchen, detached four-car garage with a hydraulic lift for an additional vehicle, a two-car garage, and a Hitchings & Company greenhouse. Two barns contain a total of 20 stalls with Dutch doors, an 80 x 25-meter indoor ring with GGT footing and viewing area, 60 x 27 meter outdoor ring with sandstone and dust footing, 14 grass paddocks, five stone dust indoor/outdoor wash stalls, three tack rooms, a kitchen, laundry, bath and a substantial hay barn.

The charming residence was expanded by architect William Byrne in 2005 using the style of a traditional Federal farmhouse replete with a covered wraparound porch. Inside, the extensive use of moldings and millwork, wide plank pine flooring, built-ins and an open staircase create understated elegance that lends itself to quiet enjoyment as well as formal entertaining. Classic details include three Rumford fireplaces and nine-foot ceilings on the first and second floors.

The inviting foyer presents a living room where a bay window and Rumford fireplace are focal points. Also adjoining the foyer is a gracious dining room for special occasions. Beyond the foyer is a rear hall leading to an office with built-ins, a sun room with Dutch door, and a spacious mud room featuring built-in cubbies, laundry room and powder room. The newly-renovated kitchen fitted with custom cabinetry offers quartz countertops, a farm sink and a center island with breakfast bar seating. The kitchen adjoins a beamed ceiling breakfast room providing banquette seating and a convenient home office or homework area offering a built-in desk and file storage. Opening from the breakfast area is a great room with high ceilings and the second Rumford fireplace enhanced by a Vermont Castings wood stove insert. Built-ins, French doors to an expansive deck and swim spa, plus a cozy loft space above the great room are further details. Completing the first floor is a conservatory overlooking the pastoral setting. This room was designed with an expansive closet and full bath, making it an optional first floor primary suite.

Upstairs, a roomy foyer takes in beautiful property views. The primary suite with the home's third Rumford fireplace connects to spa-like bath. Two additional bedrooms, a full bath and a customized linen closet complete the second floor. The third floor presents two more bedrooms and a full bath.

Old Fox Farm's storybook setting with impressive equestrian facilities is conveniently located minutes from charming downtown Chester and within easy access to highways and train lines.
