    Description

    Residing in prestigious Gwynedd Valley; this idyllic luxury estate is a lesson in extraordinary living. Nestled within a serene setting at the end of a private road, the 2.76 acres are enhanced by natural topography that has been handcrafted with bluestone terraces and professionally landscaped grounds to create exceptional outdoor living space. Masterful in design, the home is a field-stone masterpiece by highly acclaimed architect Michael H. Visich and built by Guidi. Stately and sophisticated, the over 12,000 square feet of living space is architecturally enhanced at every turn; evident in the fieldstone columns, solid mahogany entryway, Palladium windows, deep sill Pella casement windows, eight foot French doors with beveled glass, archways, seven fireplaces with raised panel surround, custom trim and rich hardwood floors. The grand scale of the foyer is complemented by the formal living and dining rooms each with a fireplace with marble hearth. Perfectly positioned, the octagon music room and handsome parlor with hand carved fireplace, extensive millwork and coffered ceiling - offer the grandest of entertaining. The gourmet kitchen with sun-drenched dining area is sure to please the most discerning of chef~s with custom cabinetry by Wakefield, granite countertops, Thermador six burner cooktop, Miele dishwasher, double oven by Profile, Subzero refrigerator, under-mount lighting, a massive center island, butlers pantry and wet bar with ice-maker and wine refrigerator. Adjacent to the kitchen, the captivating great room features a stone fireplace with custom mantle, coffered ceilings and casement windows with views of the rear grounds. The second and third levels are as equally impressive. Truly astonishing, the master suite features a marble fireplace, dressing and sitting rooms, dual walk-in closets, spa bath with limestone vanities and Juliet balcony with awe inspiring views of the rear grounds. An au pair suite and four generously sized en suite bedrooms also adorn the upstairs. Magnificent in purpose and size, the lower level features a theatre, custom bar, temperature controlled wine cellar, glass enclosed exercise room with mirrored walls, sauna and a Peter Pan playroom. Perched above the garage, the guest house offers comfort and privacy for your guests. Exceedingly private and exceptionally convenient to Philadelphia- a city steep in history, dining & theatre, Princeton and NYC; 1343 Fording Brook Road is the embodiment of Gwynedd Valley cultured elegance wrapped in modern luxury.
