As if plucked from the English countryside, this converted turn-of-the-century stone stable and carriage house is tucked away off a private lane with a courtyard featuring specimen plantings and an English fountain. It exudes charm, uniqueness and beauty along with a wealth of interesting architectural details. Its foyer/library with polished limestone floor features walls adorned with antique, arched, wood beams. Ornate stained glass doors open to the library/office, where exposed stone walls and gorgeous ceiling beams give the room a snug, warm ambiance.
The heart of the house is a true great room with a cathedral ceiling, 200-year-old barn boards, hand-adzed ceiling beams, hand-painted by historic preservationists, limestone floors, antiqued bookshelves and courtyard views through dramatic, floor-to-ceiling bay windows.
A new chef's kitchen includes handmade English oak cabinets, 200-year-old hickory floors, and a prep island with woodblock & marble tops, a soapstone sink, over-sized freezer drawers & much, much more. The adjoining breakfast area has sliding doors to a private patio. A large pantry and mudroom are off of the kitchen. Au pair quarters with separate entrance are beyond the pantry area. A formal dining room with vaulted ceiling and antique ceiling beams features a refurbished stone fireplace. Sliding glass doors lead to an en suite guest room. On the other side of the kitchen is the family room with raised ceiling and exposed antique wood beams. A custom-built oak stairway leads upstairs to private quarters.
The romantic main bedroom suite includes a custom antique, subway-tiled bathroom with walk-in marble shower, double sinks and custom oak cabinetry. Vaulted ceilings with antique exposed beams are in both the bedroom and bath. There is a walk-in closet with custom oak shelves and drawers and antique doors and hardware. A raised sitting area overlooks a sweeping balcony trimmed in custom railing and accessible via sliding glass doors.
Downstairs, opposite the great room, are three good-sized bedrooms, one with a private bath and two that share a bathroom.
Throughout is a radio and wraparound sound and light system. Newer electrical and mechanical systems. For the buyer seeking an exceptional, unique and quality-laden residence, the Stables of Bloomfield Farm are a Main Line treasure.
