900 Bryn Mawr Avenue

Penn Valley, PA 19072

This exquisite rambling Normandy mansion was built in 1933 by the renowned architect, W. Pope Barney. Sited in a parklike setting with 2.82 acres, it conjoins an additional 2 acres of open space, providing supreme privacy. This property includes two lots: a .65 acre parcel which is accessible from 528 Righters Mill Road (Tax ID 40-00-50060-00-3), providing a buyer with an ideal area for a pool, guest house, or opportunity to sell without losing the privacy and serenity of the overall property, and the main 2.17 tract of ground. The entire house was refurbished in 1995 (see list included in Seller's Disclosure) which married the best of the old world ambiance with new world conveniences. There are arched doorways with solid wood paneled double French doors. The magnificent turned staircase features original Yellin iron railings. It offers high-quality E.B. Mahoney interior workmanship and finishes, an all-stone fa~ade, extensive hardwood and Mercer tile flooring, and spacious, high ceiling rooms throughout. Perfect for parties and family gatherings, the formal dining room with marble fireplace is flooded with light by the full wall of curved windows. The formal living room offers deep window sills, oak cabinets, entrance to stone terrace and screened porch, a fireplace flanked by a full wall of solid paneling which opens to a large and inviting paneled library with three walls of bookcases, wet bar, and private stairs to the master suite above. A newer chef's gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops and the highest-end appliances (Vulcan commercial range, Subzero refrigerator, 2x Thermador ovens, and two built-in dishwashers and disposals, and a wine cooler) completes the first floor. The 2nd floor has six rooms: A large master suite with fireplace and full bath, a bedroom with full bath, two bedrooms sharing a full bath, and two additional rooms which could be used as offices. Two rooms on the 3rd floor with another full bath could be additional bedrooms or offices. The basement level offers a large party room, game/storage room, workshop, lots of storage area, laundry room, and inside access to the attached 3-car garage. A detached garage offers 2 more spaces. For entertaining, the massive courtyard driveway alone provides room for up to 10 cars! The entire property is situated in lovely wooded expanses, and has walking paths, a small stream, and a pond. All this and only twenty-two minutes to the city
