If you've always dreamed of living in a peaceful country estate without losing your connection to the city's cultural and other attractions, this exquisite property may be your dream come true. The centerpiece is a 1935 stone Colonial Revival house designed by R. Brognard Okie, one of the most talented and successful interpreters of the vernacular architecture of America's Colonial past. Okie's signature style is apparent in the the beautiful millwork, random-width pegged oak floors, natural wood-paneled library and in the way the buildings are gracefully nestled within the landscape. The first floor features a lovely entry hall, living room with fireplace, formal dining room, library with fireplace, large eat-in kitchen, breakfast room, powder room, master bedroom and 2 other bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. On the second floor are 2 more spacious bedrooms with a shared bath, and a large attic storage area. The property includes a beautiful in-ground pool, tennis court, and a large carriage house with a wonderfully retro game room with fireplace, shuffleboard court and 2 bathrooms. There are 2 parking spaces in the attached garage and 2 more in the carriage house. The gorgeous, almost 3-acre lot has lush landscaping with many perennials and specimen plantings. Ideally located on one of the prettiest roads in Whitemarsh, minutes from Chestnut Hill's shops, restaurants and commuter train, steps from the Wissahickon Watershed's Green Ribbon Trail, and just down the road from the Philadelphia Cricket Club's Wissahickon golf course & clubhouse.
