Coventry Hall, also known as Oakleigh, is a historic home located in South Coventry Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built in three major phases. The oldest section was built between 1740 and 1760. It is a 2 1/2-story, fieldstone structure with a gable roof and cut stone on the front facade. Two additions were made on the east end; the first about 1798 and the second in 1803.[2]

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
