    A classic early 18th century Pennsylvania stone farmhouse awaits your consideration at 57 Skyline Drive in beautiful and historic Thornbury Township, Glen Mills. This pristine property, referred to as Waterstock Farm, reflects abundant character and old world charm situated on 4 secluded acres with mature trees, pastures, landscaping and a barn for two horses all within the highly ranked West Chester Area School District. This all stone house features an updated kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a huge center island, and ceramic tile flooring. Hardwood floors, original millwork, four fireplaces and ample storage reflect the current owners' love of history and commitment to preservation. The living room, dining room and two of the second floor bedrooms all feature wood burning fireplaces with a woodstove located in the living room's original walk-in fireplace. The huge third floor bedroom features skylights and exposed original 300 year old, hand hewn oak framing. Outdoor features include a free standing two garage with equipment storage designed to look like a tractor shed, a two stall barn with tack room and large fenced pasture, a large one bedroom/one bath Springhouse (currently rented and separately metered but would make a great guest house, home office, or AirBnB.) Lot's of opportunity to garden, entertain your friends, and keep chickens, horses, sheep or goats. Privacy, bucolic scenery and location convenience is without compare. This property was home during the mid-20th century to Hollywood actor Claude Rains. Some of his films include The Invisible Man, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, and Casablanca (he was the French Lieutenant). Come and experience for yourself this wonderful piece of history and feel as though you stepped back in time but with modern conveniences, a rare find. See a video at: https://tinyurl.com/yxtvm967
