About 890 LANTERN Lane

***NEW PRICE*** An opportunity to own 6+ pristine acres in Gywnedd Valley. Penlyn Farm combines a classic, refined approach to living with all of the conveniences of modern life. Nestled on 6+ acres in the award winning Wissahickon School District, this equestrian estate was designed by renowned Philadelphia architect Edmund B. Gilchrist. The grounds are park-like with mature hardwood trees, scenic views and a gazebo for summer outside parties. In addition to the manor house is a renovated bank barn for horses, a regulation dressage ring, and post and rail fenced pastures. If you have always wanted to bring your horses home, this is a horse enthusiast's dream. Eight big matted box stalls, a feed room, a tack room, a H/C wash stall with heat lamps, a large lighted outdoor ring, ten grass or "dry" pasture choices and run-in sheds complete the equestrian side of the property. For those who appreciate timeless traditional elegance, the stately manor home, perfectly situated on the property, has retained many of it's beautiful original details. A few examples: the copper roof and four beautiful wood burning fireplaces, without sacrificing modern amenities like central air conditioning and updated bathrooms. Built in 1939 for E. George Lavino, a Philadelphia Industrialist, the property has only witnessed 2 owners in 82 years. Completely updated in 1980, this residence boasts 7 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 2 half baths, a linen room, a cedar room, a butler's kitchen, a trophy room along with the other standard rooms found in a home with over 6000+ square feet of living space. When entering the oversized foyer you will instantly be drawn to the details in this house: high ceilings, the rich patina on the hardwood floors, a grand staircase, strategic room layouts, superb classic woodworking, detailed moldings, decorative fireplaces, gorgeous light and bathroom fixtures, and doors and windows arranged to enhance your view of the bucolic grounds. Much like many houses found in Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy designed by Gilchrist, he designed rooms with beautiful windows and French doors to bring in natural light and nature into view from every angle. Gilchrist used exterior metals and metal designs to enhance his exterior architectural revival styles. This property is a 1 of kind estate, created specifically for entertaining and relaxing. Come and see the magic for yourself. Do you and your horse enjoy a break from training and ring riding? Hacking out to two local indoor rings, Horseways trails, Wissahickon Watershed trails, and Pennlyn Woods, it's as simple as ride out and ride in. Preserving the privacy and peaceful enjoyment of nature's undisturbed beauty on this estate is a Conservation Easement. Location, location, location: this property is close to so many amenities it is too numerous to mention all of them. A sampling of the surrounding area: Bluestone, Cedarbrook and Blue Bell Country Clubs, Germantown Academy, Gwynedd Mercy Academy, Ambler and local favorite restaurants, Gwynedd Valley Septa R5 train line to Center City, Wings Field, Routes 309, 476, 202, Starbucks, McCaffrey's and so much more. If you have been driving by this property for years and hoping it would come on the market in your lifetime, your dream just came true. This is an opportunity to purchase 1 of the most beautiful, classic, manageable estates in Montgomery Country! The property is also listed in residential: PAMC685356
