Description

This elegant estate home situated on 1.76 acres in Lower Gwynedd is rich with history, and is the perfect blend of old world charm and character married with modern updates and conveniences. The entire house has recently been refreshed with beautiful new paint colors throughout. The original Main House was built in 1827 and it has been seamlessly blended with an addition designed by the renowned architect R.A. Hoffman in 2004. Staying true to its early 1800’s roots, you will find the home has all the sophisticated touches you’d expect to see like random width hardwood flooring, classic crown and dental moldings, oversized baseboards, multiple fireplaces, built-in shelving & cabinetry, original Mercer Tiles, and loads more! Chef-inspired gourmet kitchen with custom-built cherry cabinets, granite countertops and island, 6-burner stainless steel Wolf Stove, stainless steel Wolf double wall oven, 36 Sub Zero Fridge and 36 Sub Zero Freezer, 2 Asko dishwashers, and a Gaggenau Steamer; truly a dream kitchen. In addition to the kitchen and great room, an oversized formal dining room with an elegant crystal chandelier has plenty of room for your guests. Relax in the living room by the fireplace or open one of the French doors and spend some time in the bright solarium enjoying the perfect views that this property offers. Upstairs, the owner’s suite features a gas fireplace as well as a separate dressing room plus 5 additional bedrooms on the second and third floors. There is a separate suite (perfect for an au pair suite or home office) located on the second floor of the addition with large great room, separate bedroom, full bath and loads of storage. An oversized 3 car garage with additional storage space round out this incredible home. Conveniently located within walking distance to Penllyn Station for an easy hop to Center City, and a short drive to the now open Whole Foods, local restaurants and shops. Truly a property not to be missed!
