For decades this property was home to the West Whiteland Inn. It was meticulously restored by the current owner in 2018 and received an award from West Whiteland Township for historical preservation. While the main house is vacant, the barn and 2nd floor apartment in the barn are currently leased. Article XVI of our Zoning Ordinance allows historic structures to accommodate uses that may not be otherwise permitted by the underlying zoning district. This property is zoned R-3, but because it’s been identified by the Township as a historic resource, it may be used as a guesthouse (i.e., a small hotel) by right. By conditional use it could be an inn (i.e., a guesthouse with a restaurant), a stand-alone restaurant, a professional or business office, a “cultural facility” (i.e., non-profit museum or gallery), a “cultural studio” (i.e., an artist’s place of work ), or any combination of permitted uses. The property can also be used as anything allowed in the R-3 district, including conversion to apartments. This is all listed in Sec. 325-86 of the Zoning Ordinance.
