A triumph for preservation! The Historic William Penn Inn lesser known than the restaurant w/ the same name in Gwynedd has been saved from demolition. Three units to be fully renovated w/ a wide range of unique, period & superior finishes in keeping w/ the style of that era. Joseph Price was a 4th generation LM resident well known for his broad based commercial skills & interests. He built The Inn in 1799 to serve as a resting place for people traveling in &out of Philadelphia on the Lancaster Pike. It served for more than a century in this form until it became the estate home of Nathan Parker Shortridge, adapted by famous architect Addison Hutton. Sold in the mid 1920's & converted to multi-family housing. Supportive of Lower Merion's keen & passionate interest in preservation, in keeping with the specific wishes of the Historic Commission will turn the current 6 unit apartment complex into 3 luxury condominiums. Renovation will begin in August & the units will be delivered early 2016. Finished units will possess the full range of contemporary utilities, sound & alarm systems in a truly wireless environment. Great attention will be paid to all the detailing including the installation of recovered period flooring, extensive moldings, trims & hand crafted features under the supervision of 2 master carpenters; both with historical renovation experience. The buyer will enjoy & share a triumph in renovative & restorative craftsmanship. All 3 units have open first floor plans. The measurements in Trend are only accurate for the arrangement we thought might be most traditional. The designated rooms could all change several feet either way. Each unit has a 2 car garage w/ loft storage, additional basement storage, grandly landscaped grounds, patios, walkways & quiet places cleverly situated to insure resident privacy. This unique compound shares the mature & tranquil setting of the existing Cedargrove residents w/ a pleasant walk to virtually every product & service you might need in & about the Wynnewood Shopping Center, the new mega Whole Foods, restaurants & bus and rail service. The floor plans, streetscapes, building specifications & all documents related to this condominium are available online or in person w/ an onsite or office visit. Call Craig Brand 610 715 3516. There is a onetime fee of $1500 for the capital reserve & modest monthly common fees $300-$400 that will cover all the traditional services afforded this type of dwelling.
