1450 Soapstone Road

Gladwyne, PA 19035

Custom-built 28 years ago in the manner of a great American country house, this sophisticated residence on 3+ acres has privacy without pretense. It exudes a casual elegance, having been updated throughout the years, and from its front porch overlooking a stocked quarry pond (the soapstone used to build the steps for Independence Hall was quarried here) to its sun-filled, flowing floor plan, it offers warmth and every comfort. Two sister swans guard the pond, keeping away the geese and welcoming visitors. Inside, every room sports one or more of such classic features as hardwood floors, custom millwork, French doors galore and fireplaces. Every amenity you might want is here, including large, open spaces, a gourmet kitchen centrally located between the formal and informal spaces, a finished lower level, wine cellar and much more. French doors open to a patio designed for entertaining and fun times poolside. Accessible from a private road in one of the most desirable areas of Gladwyne, this property seems to belong in a place that's farther than just 12 miles from Center City. Is it possible to get away from it all in just a short drive from town? Yes it is, when you come home to this Gladwyne estate.
