The year is 1920. World War I officially ended. The Chandlers, a wealthy family from NY are busy putting the finishing touches on their new country estate. Nestled in a quiet corner of Chester County, PA sits Padua Estate. A luxurious villa situated on over 30 acres of prime real estate in the Unionville Chadds Ford School District.

It's a feel good time and these new owners are feeling great. They not only embrace Padua Estate, but once they look out over the gardens from the second floor Master Bedroom balcony?they fall in love! Padua Estate has a new caretaker. Over the
