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.

Country Manor and Guest House with Equestrian Facilities

Newtown Square, Chester County, Pennsylvania


Panoramic views surround this gracious manor home with guest cottage and equestrian barns at Chester County's Delchester Farm. First constructed by one of the financiers of the Revolutionary War, this country retreat was later expanded by renowned architects Willing, Sims, and Talbutt and extensively renovated in the last 20 years. The well-maintained estate, with its elegant home, stone-and-wood barns and a guest cottage, exists within a landscape of quiet beauty. This and surrounding properties totaling nearly 5,000 acres in Willistown Township are under conservation easements. The 24 acres of Delchester Farm have transferred ownership just twice in 100 years. A long drive passing split-rail fences and open pastures leads to the main house, built of glittering Pennsylvania fieldstone. The entry hall features a gleaming black marble floor, French doors at either end, and ten-foot ceilings that continue throughout. A generously scaled living room feels both elegant and welcoming, with its dark wood floor, built-ins, and carved fireplace mantel. Across the hall stands the original parlor, with another large fireplace, a bar, and an original door topped with a glass transom. A bright dining room with magnificent views welcomes guests with another fireplace, chair rail, and Clarence House wallpaper. The adjoining kitchen has a French country feel, with cream-colored woodwork, lighter wide-plank hardwood floors, coffered ceilings, and an enormous black granite island. High-end appliances include a six-burner Viking stove, glass Traulsen refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher and convection oven. The far end of the kitchen serves as a family room alongside a fieldstone fireplace that contains its own small window. A vast adjoining pantry offers plentiful storage. Casual dining space sits within a glass bay, with unobstructed views of open pasture. The conservatory with a glass ceiling and bluestone floor provides another entertaining space. On the second floor, the master suite has an arched ceiling, intricately carved antique marble fireplace, built-in entertainment center, and French doors to a private balcony. Two elegant en suite bathrooms include a freestanding oval tub, dressing table with built-ins, vanity area/shaving station, and large open shower. A dressing room, linen room, cedar closet, office, and multi-purpose room complete the second floor. Four bedrooms and two additional baths on the third floor, as well as a stone guest house, make this property ideal for a large or multi-generational family. Outdoor entertaining spaces include multiple bluestone patios, both covered and uncovered; grassy terraces, and an oval swimming pool. Mature trees and landscaping contribute to the restful feel of the domestic portion of this property. Built in 1795, the traditional Pennsylvania fieldstone bank barn retains its charm yet has been updated to equip the estate for competitive equine training, fox hunting, or pleasure riding. This first-rate facility includes an outdoor sand dressage ring, turnout sheds, a 13-stall barn, a finished tack room, a heated wash stall, and a groom's apartment. A large hay shed and tool building stand nearby. Located in the award-winning Great Valley school district and near the Route 30 and Route 1 corridors, Delchester Farm is perfectly suited for the buyer in search of understated elegance in the Radnor Hunt countryside. While the majority of the property is under conservancy, one sub-division is possible.
