No superlatives can adequately describe the beauty, uniqueness & quality of construction present in this distinctive log & timber home. This exceptional residence was built to the exacting standards of today's energy efficient values & principles. Combining painstaking planning, matchless design & meticulous construction, the resulting mountain resort style home is the culmination of years of thoughtful expectations on the part of the owners. Prospective buyers will understand why selling was not an easy decision. Surrounded by 5.4 acres of wooded privacy, yet part of a neighborhood of cul-de-sacs, the home is within a few miles of every convenience, plus commuter routes, the turnpike slip ramp, & health care facilities. With a sprawling Master Suite, and 4 additional BRs, the design lends itself to any family situation. From the mahogany-floored covered front Porch & one of a kind hand-carved entry door, the 2-story Foyer leads directly to a soaring Great Room, w/beamed tongue & groove ceilings, stacked stone fireplace (fueled by a pellet stove) & a wall of windows/sliders to rear deck. Every room on the 1st and 2nd levels features oak or maple hardwood floors. The open concept plan allows the family chef to be part of any gathering -- the spacious Breakfast Room & rustic-inspired Kitchen (new DW & refrigerator, granite counters/breakfast bar/propane cooktop/convection oven/2 sinks) are open to the Great Room. A separate DR adds formal charm. Mudroom w/pantry & storage closets provides access to a 3-car Garage, while the adjoining Laundry Room is accessed by a pocket door & features a convenient laundry chute. Take the open staircase (3" deep oak treads & mahogany pegs) to the 2nd floor & find a spacious Study w/vaulted ceiling, a wall of cherry cabinetry (customized for office use), and a window seat large enough to accommodate an overnight guest. A most unique feature ? a catwalk ? leads to a BR w/private loft, stone-floored Sunroom, and bonus room/bedroom. A Jack & Jill bath serves these rooms. The LL is the essence of entertainment/guest space ? each room is completely in daylight - sunlight fills each expansive area. Here, find another Great Room, w/2-sided FP, sliders to rear of the property (graced w/a water feature), a wall of bookcases w/sliding library ladder, 3-sided wet bar w/ice maker/fridge/dishwasher, & a multi-seat Theater Room w/leather recliners & huge viewing screen.
About this Area
Malvern is a quaint borough and a member of Philadelphia’s Main Line suburbs. Like Bala Cynwyd on the far eastern side of the Main Line, the area was founded by Welsh immigrants who purchased land from William Penn. The area continues to evolve. From a small town built around an inn into the modern, engaging borough that exists today, Malvern is moving forward.
