What was the carriage house of the 150-acre Dunminning Estate is today an architectural marvel with historic elements meticulously preserved by the current owners. Among the last remaining structures from the 1887 estate & one of the largest carriage houses of its era, this prized property was lovingly restored & renovated after its purchase in 1995. Utmost attention was paid to retaining the original details & structure while incorporating the finest modern upgrades. This hidden gem amid breathtaking grounds is truly one-of-kind, built with an all-stone foundation & stone wall construction making it strong, safe, quiet & fun! The experience of this handsome classic yet luxurious house is unrivaled, with an exhaustive list of distinctive features to appreciate such as original diamond-patterned fenestration, exquisite woodwork/stonework & the addition of 3 fireplaces. The piece de resistance is the incredible central great room accessed by 12' sliding mahogany doors, the ultimate living/entertaining venue. This ballroom-size "court" w/diamond windows filtering in lovely light, a soaring hand-laid clay tile ceiling & radiant heat concrete floors is great for large parties, complete with dining, screening, billiards & piano areas plus a multi-seat bar, with lots of room left for play & parking your exotic sports car! Beyond a wide archway sits the former horse stable, now a finely-appointed chef's dream kitchen graced by 14' beamed ceilings, oversized cabinetry, granite & sealed wood counters & stainless steel appliances. The open-concept layout continues w/an adjoining butler's pantry, breakfast area & FR with a masonry brick fireplace. Across the great room behind detailed sliding doors awaits a formal gathering space w/a fireplace & wood-beamed ceilings. An adjacent library w/walls of custom built-ins, a walk-in closet & en-suite bath + an office provide intimate study & workplaces. An open sky-lit loft connecting the 1st & 2nd levels, which once occupied a carriage lift, serves as a fabulous office. The upper level w/3 BRs, a hall bath & laundry is highlighted by the stunning master suite w/a sky-lit fireside BR for viewing the moon & stars, a sitting room & French Lime Stone bath. A massive cellar workshop for all your projects + ethereal gardens/outdoor terraces make this an unequalled Main Line retreat. Close to Newtown Sq., Wayne & King of Prussia for convenient shopping & dining. Only 30-40 min. to Center City & the airport!
