    Looking for something different? Want to Wow your guests the moment they arrive? Well, look no further! This beautiful property in the heart of Chester Springs is truly unique; a stately combination of the old and the new & with flexible zoning that allows your imagination to soar! Originally constructed in 1907 to house the West Pikeland High School, it later served as the West Pikeland Municipal Headquarters for more than 50 years. Last purchased in 2007, the two-story brick schoolhouse was renovated and lovingly restored as a spacious office building by the current owner who also added a modern addition that marries seamlessly and tastefully with the existing structure. Brimming with historic charm, character and period details of a century-old schoolhouse, the new entry welcomes guests into a dramatic 2-story foyer accented by porcelain tile flooring, a timber-beam ceiling, curved wall with floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed original brick walls, a striking spiral oak staircase and cupola. Surrounding the entry foyer is approximately 6,400 SF of beautifully-appointed, light-filled space. The first floor features three spacious rooms, including the original classroom of the Schoolhouse. This large room is accented by original hardwood flooring, 10'+ ceilings, distinctive custom moldings, deep window sills and a stained-glass transom above double doors leading to the front Foyer. Another double door leads outside to the quaint, original porch & a wonderful place to sit on your rocking chair and enjoy the beautiful view of the valley below. The front foyer also provides access to the original staircase to the second floor and basement. A partially-finished walk-out basement and a crawl space below the addition provide abundant storage. The Classroom and another large room are joined by a Pullman-style kitchenette that is equipped with custom cabinetry, sink, full-size refrigerator and glass wall with doors that open to the brick patio. There is also one ADA-accessible half bath and one full bath with shower on the first floor. Overlooking the Lobby below, the upstairs balcony features an additional Kitchenette including custom cabinetry, sink and mini-fridge. Surrounding the balcony are a large corner room, two rooms adjoined by sliding glass doors & featuring exposed beams, closets and amazing views. Two steps above the balcony is the original second floor classroom & a spacious, light-filled, 800+ SF studio space (or huge family room) with large windows and deep window sills. This is truly a wonderful space for working or entertaining! A private parking lot at the rear of the building includes 26 parking spaces for guests, employees or customers with convenient access to the building's rear foyer entrance. Zoned V-2 (Village Preservation District), permitted uses for this property include professional or administrative offices, home occupation, bed & breakfast, retail and residential uses (please see West Pikeland Zoning Ordinances, pages #VI-4 through VI-6 for permitted uses.) Located within an hour's drive of the Philadelphia International Airport, this property's convenient location provides easy access to Rts. 113, 401, 202, 30, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. The extensive restoration and renovation efforts were meticulously executed with no expense spared or detail overlooked. This is truly a unique and exceptional building & and with a few changes, it could be a stunning residence or in-home business that will leave a lasting impression on the guests and clients who visit. This special piece of Chester Springs' history is now ready for a new steward to envision the next exciting chapter in it's storied past!
