The N. C. Wyeth House and Studio was a home of painter N. C. Wyeth in Chadds Ford Township, Pennsylvania, United States.

After N. C. Wyeth died, Mrs. Wyeth lived in the house until 1973, then their daughter, Carolyn Wyeth, lived there and painted in the studio until her death in 1994, when the Brandywine River Museum took possession and began restoration.

The house and studio were designated a National Historic Landmark in 1997.[2][3]

The 18-acre (7.3 ha) site includes his home, his studio, a barn and other structures, and the grounds.[3]

The Brandywine River Museum offers tours of the site.
