Turn Key, Breathtaking Frank Lloyd Wright- Style Living within 4.6 acres of easily maintained, secure Harold Kimmelman bronze gated grounds with low taxes and minimal running costs due to high efficiency geothermal systems and masterful construction. Welcome to Fernside Cottage, an exquisite residence set on spectacular, serene setting featuring incredible sun filled architectural designs and superior, timeless materials throughout. This masterpiece showcases a unique blending of original Pennsylvania stone structures with artistic 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 home 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 estate 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 1993 ? 1995, when a 3 car garage and spacious 2 bedroom guest cottage were added. The original renovation as well as the more recent additions carefully designed and constructed in 2007, incorporate exceptionally fine architectural features by renowned architect Daniel Evans White from Vancouver, British Colombia. These additions to the main residence are seamlessly blended with the original structure and expand the sophisticated style of the home, while incorporating endless exterior views and as much natural light as possible.
