Strickland-Roberts Homestead, also known as Bryncoed Farm, is a historic home located in West Vincent Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania. The original section dates to about 1800, and is a two-story, five bay by one bay, fieldstone structure. It has a gable roof, small shed roof porch, and terrace. A 2 1/2-story, four bay, random fieldstone addition was designed by R. Brognard Okie and built in 1929. Also on the property is a contributing bank barn dated to 1873. The house was purchased by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Owen J. Roberts in 1927.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
