Thoughtfully designed in every way, this magnificent 7000 +/- SF residence is brimming with distinctive features that appeal to the discerning buyer. The original owner has meticulously cared for this grand yet comfortable home, and extensively enjoyed its use for all-occasions entertaining both in and outdoors. Tucked away in a private upscale location, the estate sits on a quiet street near Philadelphia Country Club near amenities and major transportation routes. The expansive open interior begins with an elegant 2-story reception hall, and continues in the oversized coffered ceiling living room with a black marble fireplace, and formal dining room served by a well-equipped butler's pantry. The best part of the home is the incredible, fully-retractable screened outdoor living/dining room with 20 skylights, an outdoor TV, hot tub, bar and furniture for year-round enjoyment. High 10' architectural ceilings, extensive moldings and millwork, and Brazilian cherry flooring lend sophistication throughout the main level. Get away from it all in the charming study graced by beautiful cherry built-ins, or in the light-bathed sunroom with 2 sets of French doors. The favorite family spot is the gourmet kitchen with Kountry Kraft cabinetry, granite counters, a center island, workstation, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances. Have coffee or casual fare in the glorious breakfast room overlooking the rear grounds. Spend leisure time with loved ones in the vaulted ceiling family room with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. A family entrance opens to the mudroom with pantry and coat closets, a powder room, and door to the 3-car garage. Your master suite occupying one wing of the 2nd floor is a heavenly hideaway with a detailed tray ceiling, sunny windows on 2 exposures, a sitting area, his/hers closets, a loft with Juliet balcony and luxuriously appointed spa bath with heated floors. Four additional bedrooms with large closets and en-suite baths, a hallway bonus area for play or homework, and a spacious laundry room also comprise the upper level. The finished 3rd story makes a great recreation area or in-law suite with another BR and full bath. The huge day-lit walk-out basement with tall ceilings used as a gym and play area can easily be finished to meet your needs. Other special features include central audio, surround sound, CAT5 and Ethernet wiring, extra high privacy/deer estate fencing, an auxiliary generator and a lovely walking trail around the grounds.
