WOW! This 205 acre King Ranch treasure, part of the original Buck and Doe Run Valley Farms, is being made available for the first time since its purchase by the current owners, part of Buck and Doe Associates, L.P. in September of 1984. Known as "Buck and Doe 1", this breathtaking parcel was once part of the largest contiguous tract of land in Chester County, totaling 5367 acres. Over a 3 year period in the mid 1980's, a 771 acre parcel known as the Laurels, central to the original 5367 large tract, was protected and an investment group was formed to not only preserve the Laurels, but also conserve the remainder of the 5367 acres of the Doe Run Valley property. Since purchasing this incredible subdividable 205 acre parcel, surrounded buy other large tracts of land under conservancy, the current owners have meticulously created a historic-style primary residence with barns and log cabin out-buildings as well as a state of the art equestrian facility on 2 of the 4 potential parcels, 3 of which are approved for residential construction sites. Modeled after Primitive Hall, circa 1737-1738, master builder James Cherry who is renowned for his historic structures, built the current wood-fired all brick residence with cedar shake roof, which was beautifully expanded in more recent years, to accurately reflect the finest architecture, historical details and design elements of the period. Further improvements include a detached reconstructed historic log guest cabin with 3 garage bays, stunning pool, authentic brick terraces and gardens with spectacular views of the rolling hills and serene countryside. A state of the art equestrian arena with and riding/ training facility, 2 horse barns with 21 oversized horse stalls, 3 wash stalls, extensive fenced in paddocks and outdoor riding ring with expansive access to endless open space, private trails and more was built by King Construction Company in 1996. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own an expansive, completely protected historical property with viewsheds, facilities, residential and outbuilding craftsmanship and improvement potential and that can not be imagined or duplicated.
