A Historic Stone House Gets A Beautiful Update In Pennsylvania

Archer & Buchanan Architecture in collaboration with Griffiths Construction has reimagined this historic stone house, nestled on 225 acres in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania. Known as “Big Bend Farm”.

This property has a storied past dating all the way back to the late 1700s. Renowned artist and conservationist George A. “Frolic” Weymouth had found this dwelling in ruins while hunting near Brandywine Creek.

The home had been abandoned since 1925. By 1961, Weymouth owned the dilapidated structure and the property, which had no running water or heat.

Inside, the ground floor included a new family entry and the addition of a modern kitchen. The homeowner desired a more open floor plan, a double-height library with a mezzanine, and a new sculptural stair.

The design delivers utterly unique, dramatic spaces created through custom casework, vaulted ceilings, and a plan that provides multiple sightlines through the house from various points of entry.

The wood stove and antique accents give this double-height library with a mezzanine a cozy and inviting atmosphere with convenience and luxury.

This bedroom has a rustic and charming feel thanks to the exposed beams that completely elevate the space. They add so much character and warmth to the room.

The surrounding countryside views of this historic stone home are simply breathtaking while the expansive backyard is perfect for outdoor gatherings.
