This elegant French manor home designed by Walter Durham offers solid construction and was recently renovated, inside and out. The home sits far back from the road with lush plantings across the front of the property. The newly coated, long driveway with lighting is edged with Belgian blocks, lined with box woods, and pre-wired for electric gates. Approach the home through a courtyard with statuary, vine-covered masonry walls, and slate-covered steps. Custom iron railings match the original gate and a new front door with wrought iron insert complete the theme. The bright living room has over-sized windows, plantation shutters, and refinished hardwood floors. The wall above the wood-burning fireplace is wired for a large screen TV. Alcoves on either side of the fireplace will accommodate built-ins, if desired. A multi-room built-in sound system, energy efficient lighting, and ceiling fans are part of the upgrades. The eat-in, gourmet kitchen features a large island, granite, Sub-Zero, SS appliances, 6-burner range top, Fisher Paykel DW, double oven, built-in microwave and beverage fridge. The kitchen has ample cabinet space, pantry with pull-out drawers, and convenient spice racks in cabinets by the stove. The kitchen opens to the rear patio through an Anderson slider. The large dining room, open to both living room and kitchen, looks out to a fern garden through a picture window and opens to the rear patio through another slider, providing great flow for entertaining. Take seven steps up to the large master suite with two walk-in closets and large master bath with granite tile, double shower and sinks, linen closet, Jacuzzi, and Toto Washlet. There is also a new hall bath. Providing privacy, yet being close at hand when needed, five steps up are three large bedrooms with ample closets, a new bath, and a linen closet. Go up to a 5th bedroom with a window and skylights that could also be an office, game room, media room, nanny's room, etc. The lower level room with radiant-heated floor, a large picture window, and new powder room, has a separate entrance and could be used as an office. The rear yard is park-like with a large patio, renovated pool area and lots of space for a swing set or recreation. Also featured are a storm water management system, new gutters/downspouts, insulated garage door and a new pool fence. Walk to Villanova U, train to Center City, Ashbridge Park/Playground, and soon-to-be public garden, the Stoneleigh Estate.
