About 1028 LIEDS Road

Peter Bohlins Gaffney House Plus attendant building which was Deborah Remingtons Chester County Painting Studio retreat & Gallery make for two homes on this property.Rolling farmland of Chester County is the setting for this Home with a pedigree and history that starts within the stone walls of a 300-year-old barn traversing the centuries, to the leading edge of the Post-Modern movement through the eyes of renowned architect of the present era, Peter Bohlin and his partners Powell, Larkin & Cyinski. Looking over 9.8 acres of valley views framed in a panorama of windows on the first floor and a two-story window extending up to the main bedroom on the second floor are a courtyard, meadow, trout stream & forest. The commanding view from the second-floor balcony, as though standing on the bridge of a ship, further embraces the interior architecture of the Living room in the foreground, through the glass of the home while the old stone walls of the courtyard connect to the seasonal changes of the valley. The Bohlin designed Gaffney House, has been recipient of the 1980 Silver Medal for Design Excellence, AIA Philadelphia, the 1981 AIA National Honor Award , Homes For Better Living , First Honor Award, AIA and House and Home Magazine- Honor Award for Design Excellence, PA Society of Architects- Citation for Excellence in Design AIA Philadelphia. The Farmhouse houses a working artist studio with office/gallery and full bath, plus a one bed room two story apartment with full bath and Kitchen on a separate entrance. The studio, (28' x 20'), was built in 1990 for, well known, abstract artist Deborah Remington, a descendant of Western artist Frederic Remington. Ms. Remington purchased the property in 1989 as a creative retreat from her busy New York City co-op. Her distinctive form of illusion and abstraction was in transition during the years that she assumed summer residence at the Gaffney house and worked in the studio studio from 1989-2010. During this period the mechanistic, didactic flavor of her earlier work was replaced with looser, more expressionistic and organic qualities. The current owner, also an artist, has carefully updated both buildings with deep respect for Bohlins design as well as a respect for the simple Farmhouse design adding a front porch to the house. She updated baths in both buildings, new kitchen in the Gaffney house, insulated windows and new mechanicals in both structures.
