One of the many advantages of living in Landenberg is that on nearly every corner of its winding country roads, there is a beautiful vista that offers the best of southern Chester County: Rolling hills, acres of woodlands and nature preserves and, perhaps most beautiful, galloping horses that enjoy acres of pasture to run on.

At 449 Chesterville Road, there is such an equestrian wonderland spread out over nearly 23 picturesque acres, and it's now for sale. Priced at $950,000, the 3,300-square-foot brick and stucco Cape home has an expansive, wraparound porch and  three large comfortable bedrooms, as well as a custom chef's kitchen with a Viking stove and work island and wine bar – all of which are enhanced by random-width oak floors.

If you're exhausted from tending to your horses in the adjacent eight-stall barn, you can relax beside three custom-made fireplaces that create a sense of comfort and warmth at nearly every corner of the home's main level. The home also features a large, airy master suite with a sitting area, dressing room, and spa bath with a walk-in shower and whirlpool tub.

Outside, the equestrian  facilities are a horse lover's daydream come to life. The barn features full electric and hot and cold water, center aisle pavers and matted stalls. There is ample open pasture space for the horses – 19 fenced acres –  as well as a 150-by-80-foot fenced area with rubber footing, a round pen with an observation deck, shed and several single-stall barns, perfect for keeping a stallion private or quarantining a new horse.

There are very few sights more definitive of Landenberg than the image of horses romping on a farm. On Chesterville Road, there is such a place, and now it can be yours.
