Description

Records conflict as to whether "Blakely Cottage" was built in the late 1800's or in the early portion of the 1920's but regardless of the exact construction date it is obvious that the talents of the era's premier craftsmen were focused on both the design and execution of this extraordinary 6 bedroom home. Remarkable high ceilings on all three of the homes finished levels are highlighted by rich original oak flooring as well as more modern additions. An extensive renovation accomplished by the current owners (in 2005) since 2014 saw to the replacement of the windows with high end Marvin Windows which duplicated the original fenestration, basement waterproofing, new heating and air-conditioning, a fully renovated (Kountry Kraft) Kraft maid kitchen and many baths. The formal front entry finds the warmth of a corner fireplace and the drama of a gallery and balconied staircase rising centrally to all three levels. The formal rooms have been rethought by the current owners to suit their family's needs for best use of space with the Living Room, formally the Dining room situated on the left and the now very large Dining room (once formal living room) with fireplace positioned just forward from the foyer. A step down fireside family room was added at some point and connects the Dining room and Kitchen to a screened three season room and beyond to extensive side and rear gardens, a large flat lawn and inviting pool. A sparkling white kitchen has been extensively upgraded to include a Viking 8 burner gas cooking, Subzero refrigeration, two sinks and seated center island. An adjacent Butlers Pantry provides an additional oven and dishwasher and abundant cabinet storage both new and repurposed from the homes original pantry. A Home Office is positioned next to the Family Entrance and Mudroom. Two Powder Rooms and a walk-in Cloak Room and rear stairs complete this level. The striking front staircase leads to a large Owners Suite. Delicate plaster moldings trim the walls and ceiling and a deep bay widow allows for more seating with southern exposure while a fireplace adds additional charm. Step down to a large Dressing Room brightened by skylights and two Baths connected by a central shower. Each side, hers has a slipper soaking tub, have individual vanities and water closets. Extensive wainscotting line the halls and lead to three Bedrooms, each with ensuite baths. Laundry and Linen storage are also found on this floor. The third level offers a balcony overlook and two lovely Bedrooms, a large hall bath, Craft room and mechanicals. Exit any door to find beautifully landscaped grounds, a built-in grill, terraces and a pergola covered in wisteria providing a stunning back drop to the Pool. and entertaining area. Handsome wrought iron gates and fencing wind by cutting and herb gardens to 1 bedroom and bath Guest Cottage overtop of the (2+) 3+car Garage and Cold-Frame Greenhouse. A truly exquisite home positioned between the estate at Allgates and storied Merion Golf Manor. By appointment only
