 Daylesford Lake Condominium Association

183 Daylesford Boulevard

Berwyn, PA 19312

 Phone:  610-407-4347




These Rules, Regulations and Standards are established for the Daylesford Lake Condominium Association in accordance with the Supplementary Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions of Daylesford Lake Condominium Association.  By adoption, the Rules become a working component of the Declaration.

The purpose of the Rules is to complement the covenants and restrictions in the Declaration and to be consistent with the intent of the Declaration to preserve, maintain and enhance the integrity of the association, value of the property and architectural harmony of the buildings and site design of the community.

It is the responsibility of the Association, through the Board of Directors and Architectural Control Committee to administer and enforce these Rules.  These Rules may be amended from time to time as the needs and desires of the community change.  With the recognition that individual tastes and styles may change or slightly deviate from the original intended character of the community, the Association will monitor the effectiveness, practicality and applicability of these Rules with the intent to initiate amendments, if warranted.

Please keep this copy of the Rules with your other association documents.  Please take some time to review and understand the rules.  If you have questions, please contact the Managing Agent. If you have tenants in your unit, pass a copy of these rules along to them.  It is the responsibility of the Owner to ensure that his/her tenant understands and abides by these Rules.

Thank you.




The attached chart addresses some of the common questions concerning the responsibility for the maintenance, repair and replacement of the elements comprising the condominium properties.  The chart can be used as a guide.  It is not intended to encompass every component or situation involving the condominium properties.

The components can be broken down generally into three categories:

1.  Common Elements. The buildings which contain the individual units (not the units themselves) and the land adjacent to the individual units (common areas).

2.  Limited Common Elements.  Elements restricted to the sole and exclusive use of a unit.

3.  Individual Units.

Responsibility for the maintenance, repair and replacement of the components is set forth and governed by:

1.  Declaration of Condominium of Daylesford Lake, Article XIV.

2.  Rules and Regulations of the Association.

Generally, the responsibilities are allocated as follows. (Note: Expenses involving Common or Limited Common elements which benefit fewer than all the units may be assessed against the units benefited).

 1.  Association – common element expenses incurred with respect to common elements benefiting all units.

 2.  Individual Unit Owner – Limited common element expenses and limited expenses incurred with respect to common elements or limited common elements benefiting fewer than all the units.

 3.  In order to maintain the integrity of the properties, the Association, through its Board, is empowered to maintain, repair and replace Common Elements as well as Limited Common Elements, to pay from the Association funds common expenses which are the responsibility of the Association, and to bill back to individual unit owners the Limited Common Expenses and Limited Expenses which are the responsibility of the unit owners.

4.  Generally, when any of the Common Elements listed in the following chart are repaired or replaced as part of a program which benefits all units, it will generally be considered a common element expense and the responsibility of the Association.  However, when elements are repaired or replaced on an individual basis and not as part of a program which benefits all units, either at the request of a unit owner or upon determination of the Board that those individual elements require repair or replacement to preserve the appearance or integrity of the Association’s properties, expenses may be charged back to unit owners on the basis that it benefits fewer than all the units.

Questions concerning the attached chart, or specific components which may not be adequately addressed in the chart should be referred to management.

Daylesford Lake Architectural and Landscaping Standards

 Introduction to Architectural and landscaping Standards

 Set forth herein are various standards and guidelines for Daylesford Lake Condominium. It is important that we, as a community, maintain a uniform appearance to preserve the beauty, character and quality of our development. We greatly appreciate your adherence to these standards and guidelines.


These definitions supplement the definitions set forth in Article IV, Section 4.01 of the Declaration of Condominium.   In the event of any conflict, the Declaration of Condominium shall control.

Lot  means that portion of the Property on which the Unit is situated and it’s surrounding landscaping.

Pests mean all insects, rodents, and stray or nuisance animals.

Vehicle means any means of locomotion, powered by any propulsion system.


 1.  No Unit Owner shall alter or paint any exterior portion of a Unit or Lot without the prior written approval of the Board of Directors.

Unit Owners must submit a written application (using forms supplied by the Association, a copy of which is attached) through the Managing Agent to propose alterations to the exteriors of their Unit and Lot including, but not limited to, patios, decks, lighting, painting, other exterior finish or component, landscaping, along with plans, if necessary, to the Managing Agent and Board of Directors.

 3.   The Managing Agent and Board of Directors shall review the application and make a recommendation for approval, conditional approval or disapproval of said application to the Board. The recommendation for approval by the Managing Agent and Board of Directors is not deemed to be permission to proceed until the Managing Agent and the Board of Directors approve the application.

 4.   The principal criterion for review and approval of any application for any addition, exterior alteration, modification or change to an existing Unit or Lot shall be based upon the original design character of the building architecture, materials and color scheme.  The criteria of safety, security and general welfare will be considered also in making decisions for any such requests for proposed change.

 5. The Managing Agent and the Board of Directors shall monitor the Lots, Units, Common Elements and Limited Common Elements to ensure compliance with architectural and landscape standards and approved plans for alteration or improvement.

 6.   Any complaints regarding actions of the Managing Agent and the Board of Directors of the Association or other Unit Owner must be submitted, in writing, to the Managing Agent.

 7.   The Board may, pursuant to and within the limitations of the Declaration and By- Laws for Daylesford Lake Condominium Association, amend these Rules, Regulations and Standards from time to time.


 1.   No Unit Owner shall install any additional exterior lighting including but, not limited to light posts and ground lights, without the prior written approval of the Board.  Homeowners must maintain any approved lighting fixtures in good working order.

 1.   Landscape Guidelines: See Responsibility Chart

 2.   Responsibility for maintenance and replacement of trees, shrubs, lawn, turf and beds shall be as set forth in the foregoing Responsibility Chart.

 3.  Owner must maintain (in accordance with the landscape specifications used by the Association lawn care contractor) any Owner-installed landscaping, including materials and flowers.

 4.    The  Association  may,  from  time  to  time,  provide  Residents  seeking  landscape additions with a list of planting materials that are recommended and non- recommended for use in the community.

 5.  Edging of borders of landscaped beds with brick, wood, railroad timbers, rocks or ornamental stone is not permitted.

 6.   No  additional  garden  areas  (areas  intended  primarily  for  flowers,  annuals  and perennials) may be installed without first submitting a request and receiving written approval of the Board. Approved existing garden areas on a Lot shall be maintained by the Unit Owner (including mulch applied annually, routine weeding, pruning and trimming as needed and removal of dead materials).  If a Unit Owner fails to maintain a garden area, the Association, at its option, may maintain the garden area or cause the garden to be returned to its previous state, at the expense of the Unit Owner.

 7.   Vegetables shall not be grown on any portion of the Common Area.  They may be planted in pots on decks.

 8.   Permanent  flower  boxes  are  not  permitted.    Window  boxes  on  deck  railings  are permitted provided they are kept in good condition.

 9.    Temporary plants in containers shall be properly maintained and removed by December 1st.

 10. All hoses and watering devices must be neatly stored on the Lot when not in use.  Such devices must be removed from the exterior from December 5th until March 31st.

11.  The existing slope or configuration of any Lot and property shall not be altered, nor shall any structure or retaining wall be erected or other activity taken which retards, impacts, changes or otherwise interferes with the natural flow of surface drainage waters or which creates erosion or related problems or disturbances.

 12. Unit Owners are responsible for watering lawns, shrubs and trees throughout the season.   New plant material requires extensive watering until it is established. Please note that the cost for replacement of landscape material in unit beds attached to the home is the homeowner’s responsibility, so diligence is encouraged.

 13. Dead or overgrown trees and shrubs shall be removed at the discretion of the Association.  Depending upon the location and density of the area, the Association shall have the option of replanting said trees and shrubs.  Plant material in unit beds attached to the home shall be selected and replaced with material on the Association’s recommended list at the Association’s sole discretion, and invoiced to the unit owner.  Plant size shall be similar to the original planting when it was originally installed.  Planting may be completed in the spring or fall when the weather is less hot and dry.  Unit owners wanting to do the work themselves may replant with the like kind or similar plant material from the Association’s recommended list at any time.  It is recommended that unit owners inform the management agent of their intention to avoid a duplication of effort and charges. Prior written approval from the Association is required

 14. Any trees, grasses, or shrubs, which are located on the perimeter of the lake may not be altered or removed by any unit owner.   These plantings are important in erosion control. Any persons cutting this material may be billed for its replacement and costs where necessary for erosion control.  Any person entering the inside of the split rail fencing does so at their own risk and the Association will not be responsible for any injuries sustained.

 15.  Dead tree removal in naturalized areas is at the discretion of the board.  The tree must pose a threat to the home.     Naturalized areas are just that; they are not maintained in the same manner as landscaped areas. They serve an important purpose as erosion and runoff control.   Disturbance of even dead planting could cause further erosion.  The condominium is required by the township to maintain these naturalized areas.  Any resident that disturbs such areas will be responsible for the costs of reestablishment.       The Association will make final determination as to whether a planting is dead.

 16. No burning of trash, leaves or other materials is permitted on any Lot or in the Common Area.  Use of any outdoor/patio Fire Pit is PROHIBITED.

 17. Flag brackets may not be attached to the stucco or siding.

 18. Only American flags may be flown from the garages.  All other flags must be flown from the rear decks of the units. Decorative flags with holiday themes may be flown for two weeks prior to the holiday and one week following the holiday.  All flags must be maintained in good condition.

 19. No latticework is allowed on any common area.



1.  All property, Lots, Buildings and Common Areas designated for residential use shall be used, improved and devoted exclusively to and for residential use.  Nothing herein shall be deemed to prevent an Owner from leasing a Unit to a single family, subject to the provisions of the Declaration and herein adopted rules.

2.   Use of the Common Area is limited to the residents, their families, and guests.

3.   No  rubbish,  trash,  garbage  or  other waste material  or  debris  shall  be  kept  on Common Area.   No odor shall be permitted to arise there from any Lot so as to render the Property or any portion thereof unsanitary, unsightly, offensive or detrimental to the welfare and health of any other Owner or resident or to any other property in the vicinity.  Residents who are found to have litter in their lot will be given a warning and if the litter is not removed within five (5) days they will be fined.

4.   No clothing or household fabrics shall be hung, dried or aired on the exterior of any building or upon any Lot and no household cleaning tools, including mops and brooms, may not be kept on the exterior of any unit.   Snow shovels must be stored in the garage.

5.  Each unit shall be used as a residence for no more persons than permitted by law.

 6.   No business, industry, trade or commercial enterprise of any kind shall be commenced, erected, maintained, operated or conducted out of any Unit, or upon any portion of a Lot or any portion of the Common Area, except as specifically permitted by zoning laws.

 7.  Seasonal decorations, in keeping with the architectural character and scale of the Units and community, may be displayed.  Any damage caused by the seasonal decorations will be the homeowner’s responsibility. Outdoor winter holiday lighting may be displayed between Thanksgiving and January 15.  Decorations for other holidays may be displayed 2 week prior to the holiday and removed 1 week after the holiday.  Intrusive, excessive or offensive displays may need to be removed at the request of the Board.

 8.   Each Unit Owner or resident shall keep his/her patio or deck in a state of neatness and cleanliness.   Tires, construction materials, including old wood from deck renovations, tools (including ladders), garbage bags, lawn ornaments (bird feeders, etc.) shall not be stored on patios or on or under decks.  Outdoor tables and chairs and grills may remain set up on decks and patios, provided that they are in good repair.  Bicycles and children’s toys (including sand boxes, plastic pools, not to exceed an aggregate of four (4) such items, may remain on a patio or deck during the months of April through October; thereafter, such items must be stored in the interior of the Unit.  Swing sets, play structures, sliding boards or other play or exercise equipment are not permitted to remain on any Lot or in the Common Area.

 9.   All Firewood must be stored in metal ring firewood containers and placed away from the building. The Association shall not be responsible for damage caused by insects from wood stacked next to any Unit.  It is recommended that not more than one-half cord of wood be stored at any time and that firewood stored be consumed annually to avoid the risk of insect or rodent infestation.

 10. Outdoor cooking grills should not be placed against or near a building or other combustible materials when in use and a fire extinguisher or hose should be kept next to the cooking grill when in use. It is recommended that propane-cooking grills be inspected annually by a qualified party to assure proper operation and connection of valves and hoses.

 11. The Association may require proof of a chimney inspection to be performed by each Unit Owner every second year, and cleaning if deemed necessary, by a qualified chimney sweep to ensure safe operation of all fireplaces in the community.

 12.  All windows and sliding glass doors must be covered with curtains, drapes, shades, blinds or the like that are either white of off-white as viewed from the outside.  No stained glass, plastic films or colored glass coatings are permitted.

 2.  Awnings are permitted only on decks.  Vertical flaps are permitted, provided that the material matches the awning and the drop/valance does not exceed twelve inches (12”) in length.  The valance/drop may be straight or scalloped at the bottom.

 3.   Requests for awnings should be made by using the Awning Request Form.   You may obtain this form from our Managing Agent.


1.   Unit owners are responsible for maintaining, repairing and/or replacing their windows.  Windows from three different manufacturers were utilized in building the houses; therefore, should replacement be necessary the objective is to maintain consistency in appearance, both internal and external.

 2.   All windows must have mullions (grilles) and they must be uniform within each individual unit.

 3.   No stained glass, plastic films, or colored glass coatings are permitted on windows.

 4.   In repairing screens use grey/charcoal fiberglass or charcoal aluminum mesh screen.

Purpose of the Dog Exercise Area

The purpose of the Dog Exercise Area is to provide the dogs of Daylesford Lake with a small safe area in which they can run free off leash under the control of their owners.

Dog Exercise Area Location

The location was selected so that it would not interfere with the rest of the community and would not be visible to any homeowners.

Supervision of the Dog Exercise Area

A group of dog owners have agreed to undertake the ongoing supervision of the Dog Exercise Area under the direction of the Board of Directors.  This will include ensuring that dog owners keep the Dog exercise Area clean and limiting access to registered Daylesford Lake dogs.

Ongoing Support and Maintenance

The dog owners plan to improve the Dog Exercise Area by adding additional screening including trees and shrubs along Route 252.

Additional Information

If you would like to get additional information on the Daylesford Lake Dog Exercise Area including how to register your dog, please call or email Finbar McEvoy at (610)-296-8109 or
