922 Strath Haven Avenue

Swarthmore, PA 19081

With this .59 mini estate just blocks from downtown Swarthmore's train station, library and shops, an extraordinary stone Tudor overlooks the college campus. Designed and built for noted water color artist, Arthur Bye, this very special home offers inspiring views, elegant entertainment spaces, and a unique location steps from every convenience, yet surrounded by peaceful vistas. Enter the marble foyer for a sense of the high ceilings and transporting views seen from each window. The study features handsome wainscoting, a large fireplace, and built-ins. French doors lead out to the veranda, with its tranquil view over the property. The living room has a dramatic staircase with a 2 story leaded glass window and an enormous fireplace. The wall of floor to ceiling windows brings the beauty of nature inside no matter the season. The formal dining room showcases another tableau of the grounds and reflecting pond. The kitchen is quite functional with pretty vistas. Next to the kitchen, the large family room boasts a wood-burning fireplace with copper mantel. This bright space was commissioned by Arthur Bye for use as a gallery and reception area during his time spent fundraising to create what is now the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Today it is a sunny and comfortable space for relaxing in style. On the second floor, three full baths and four enormous bedrooms offer stunning views over the lovingly landscaped property and all the nooks and crannies of a classic Swarthmore home. The third floor features a study or playroom as well as two additional bedrooms. Outside enjoy all the beauty that Pennsylvania nature has to offer. The covered veranda and stone patio offer a place to sip lemonade by the self-recycling reflecting pond. Rhododendrons, weeping cherry, Japanese maples and hydrangea bring lush color to the property no matter the time of year. The perfect space for luxurious entertaining or comfortable contemplation, one visit and you will never want to say good-bye. ALSO CHECK MLS#6771982
