Bryn Coed Farm

Chester Springs

THE RESIDENCE OF U.S. Supreme Court Justice Owen J. Roberts (1875-1955) was meticulously renovated and expanded by notable Philadelphia architect R. Brognard Okie in the 1930’s as his refuge from life in Washington, D.C.  Subsequent alterations and the ravages of time brought the house near to demolition.  The new owners asked us to preserve the home and adapt it sensitively for the use of their large family.  Later additions were removed, all systems and finishes renewed, and a new wing precisely within the limits of the demolition gave the timeless Chester County farm new life as a contemporary home while faithfully restoring the work of Mr. Okie.
