    Turn Key, Breathtaking Condo Style Living within 4.6 acres of easily maintained, gated grounds. Welcome to Fernside Cottage, an exquisite residence set on spectacular, private setting featuring incredible architectural designs and materials throughout. This masterpiece showcases a unique blending of old world stone structures with timeless, contemporary steel and glass living spaces. The original portion of this spectacular property was built in 1835 as a mill worker's house, and remained so until 1910. The property was then bought by Dr. DeWitt Ludlum, a Psychologist who created the Gladwyne Colony. He converted the structure into a single house for himself in 1910 and it remained his residence until 1964 when John Dorrance bought the property along with many additional properties to create the Dorrance Estate.. Fernside Cottage remained part of his Dolebrand compound until 1992, when it was sold as part of his estate. It was purchased by the current owners in 1992 and went through major renovations between 1992 ? 1994, when a 3 car garage and 2 bedroom guest cottage were added. More recent additions were carefully designed and constructed in 2007. Exceptionally fine architectural features are incorporated throughout by renowned architect, Daniel Evan White from Vancouver, British Colombia and the owner with additions to the house being designed in a contemporary style. They are very modernist, not competing with the main older house which is the traditional 1835 stone dwelling. Please note: Square footage as per seller is 6, 500 sq. ft. Just 15 minutes from Acela trains to NYC and D.C., 15 minute from Center City Philadelphia. The Ultimate In Turn Key Living!
