"Meadow House" is a 5, 500 SF federal style home centered on eight acres near to Fort Washington State Park, Erdenheim Farm, and multiple country clubs. This elegantly remodeled three-story stone house (circa 1770s) is surrounded by meadows and tall trees with expansive views of the Cricket Club golf course. Located in historic Whitemarsh, a short drive to Chestnut Hill and the 476/PA Turnpike interchange, life in Meadow House is both bucolic and historic. Enter the property off the gold coast of Joshua Rd via a long, tree-lined driveway parallel to Lorraine's Run. Approach on the right the old working barn, a farm period relic when the estate included over 200 acres. The main foyer is the former "summer kitchen" with french doors leading to an expansive 60' terrace. Five fireplaces support a series of warm rooms large and small. The open main floor includes adjacent 20' x 40' living and 20' x 20' dining rooms with wood floors and period detailed moldings. The large living room features a gas fireplace with a federal style mantel and double french doors to the terrace, while the formal dining room comes with a wet bar and large fireplace. In winter, a modern wood stove warms the sitting room and kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances, new glass backsplash and granite countertops. In the summer months, plan to live on the outdoor porch with views of the stream and meadows. There are 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. The first floor bedroom has a remodeled bath with TV and large cast iron tub. The slumber-inducing master bedroom has another federal mantel, bathroom and his/hers walk-in closets. Two more bedrooms with bath, an office with fireplace, and second floor laundry are also located on the second floor. The third floor has a bedroom, bath, yoga room, and finished attic. Finally, a separate bedroom and bath are located over the two car garage.
