Set back behind a gated entrance and long drive on 8.4 acres, this outstanding example of early 20th-century Georgian-style architecture is a refreshing oasis in the heart of the Main Line. The brick residence has a commanding, stately presence with many of its design elements rooted in classical architecture. Its magnificent limestone front- and back-door surrounds set the tone for the attention to detail inside. Completely renovated down to the studs in 1991, its old-world features were seamlessly repaired and refreshed. Upon entering, the bright, front-to-back reception foyer, trimmed in elaborate, rich moldings and millwork, parquet floors and a dramatic, wide stairwell, is the perfect place to welcome guests. To the right is a formal living room with fireplace, parquet flooring, multiple seating areas and plenty of tall windows that bring in natural light. To the left, the formal dining room with fireplace and herringbone-pattern wood flooring includes a wall of furniture-finish built-ins. Both formal rooms as well as a family room showcase fancy fireplace surrounds and substantial millwork and moldings that run literally from floor to ceiling. The kitchen is a chefs dream with mellow cherry cabinetry, a big, granite island with two sinks, a pass-through with bar seating, stainless steel appliances including a 48in gas range, and plenty of natural light. Adjacent is a charming informal dining area with access to the grounds. Directly behind the house lies a classic English garden, perfect for relaxation or entertaining. A wraparound, Palladian-arched loggia is also the perfect outdoor ~room~ for entertaining and leads to a beautifully designed, stepped-down pool area complete with pool house providing changing room, living room and kitchen. At the edge of the formal garden, a picturesque outdoor gazebo offers views of the grounds. For additional recreation, a tennis court is located on the other side of the formal gardens. This home's private quarters include the main suite, spacious and comfortable with a fireplace and sitting area, generously-sized walk-in closets and marble-clad main suite bathroom with his and hers vanities, glass stall shower, bath tub, and hammered brass sinks. There are 3 additional bedrooms on 2nd level, all generously sized and featuring views of the grounds, and 5.3 additional baths. Two bedrooms are above the attached garage and one includes a kitchenette. All are accessible from the main house. The home includes a spacious home gym with sauna. Additional finished living space includes the ~rathskeller~ basement, perfect for entertaining with game area, bar with seating and wine cellar. In addition to a 4-car attached garage there is formal, motor-court-style parking, professional hardscaping and landscaping, lush plantings and verdant lawn. This is the complete package offering privacy, steel and brick quality construction plus a long list of updates to create a modern, comfortable home. All is tucked into a fabulous Main Line location that includes a separately deeded building lot. The property is near walking trails on the Haverford College campus, countless dining and shopping options as well as medical offices and hospitals. Close to major highways, the Philadelphia International Airport, and more.
