    Description

    We are in search of the next stewards of this extraordinary home. From the moment you walk through the front door, you will appreciate how much this home offers future owners. Originally built in 1768, with additions in 1799, and the 1960s, the current owners spent the last 19 years lovingly restoring it and bringing it up to today+GGs standards. This remarkable property now has the rare combination of treasured 18th century character and modern conveniences. Situated on nearly 2 beautiful acres, an upscale neighborhood was built around the home on the original grounds of the estate. Not long ago, the home was shared with over 700 people during the 65th Holiday House Tour and featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The homeowners have impeccable taste; you will see the evidence of their attention to detail in most every room. Beginning in the living room, notice the carefully restored plaster walls, the deep windowsills, the traditional fireplace, and the Dutch door and small pass through window to the sunroom. With floor to ceiling windows, a cathedral ceiling and a masterfully repointed stone wall, this sunny space is the perfect room to cozy up to read a book or use as a home office. Continue to the dining room and notice the open beams, hand-painted hardwood flooring, original woodwork, and walk-in fireplace. Entertaining in this room is a joy using the fireplace for cooking a pot of stew or your favorite recipe over open flame. Built in the 1960s, the kitchen has abundant cherry cabinets and functions beautifully for a skilled cook(s). It has been updated with a Thermador cooktop and Bosch double oven. New flooring was added and the wall was opened to the adjacent family room enhancing the heart of the home. Don+GGt miss the exposed brick wall and matching family room fireplace. This open concept offers the coziest place to enjoy television, have family meals and enjoy the large bay window. There is so much more on the 1st floor - a large walk-in pantry, a full bathroom, laundry chute, liquor closet, laundry room and 2 double-door closets. Finally, visit the den/study and consider using it as office space, children+GGs playroom, teens+GG den or in-law suite. There are 3 stairways to take you to the 2nd floor including the original pie-shaped steps, back stairs to the main bedroom suite and living room stairs. The main suite is impossible to adequately describe. It has open-beam cathedral ceiling, random-width pegged hardwoods, 2 walk-in closets and 2 additional closets. There is even an adjacent dressing room space. The main bathroom is stunning, with pedestal tub, dual hand-carved sink consoles and an over-scale shower with rain fixture, magnificent tile with shaving bench/sink. There are 3 additional bedrooms with fireplaces that have been closed for safety, original wide-plank pine hardwoods and a full bathroom. There are separate 3rd floor spaces. The south end has another bedroom suite. As the quietest room, it will enchant your visitors with its retreat-like ambiance. The other area was used as a bedroom, but currently functions as a storage room. The unfinished basement of this home has endless possibilities. Current owners were readying it to become a wine storage/tasting room. It could also be a media room or a children+GGs play space. Travel outside to appreciate all that this property has to offer, from the professionally designed landscaping and exterior lighting, to the magnificent 200 year-old Sycamore tree that overlooks the springhouse and wishing well, this estate is breathtaking at daytime and at night. The yard is an oasis of outdoor living space with a wisteria covered pergola, a greenhouse and stone retaining walls. Marvel at the heated pool designed to honor the quality of the home architecture. It has a dark bottom, wide welcoming steps, a waterfall and a hot tub. The yard has wide open space to accommodate any active family. Who will be the next stewards?
