        An easy walk to Baldwin School and Bryn Mawr RR station, "Tawno Ker" ("Dear Little Home") is an exercise in classic Arts & Crafts design. The 4, 300-square-foot residence with separate guest house remains true to its historical roots with original detail including charming heart-shaped door locks, leaded-glass windows, and classic millwork and moldings. Yet, with the best of its authentic features in place, it sensitively incorporates an array of modern updates. A wide entry foyer with original paneled wainscoting and staircase leads to large formal living room featuring two sets of leaded-glass French doors and arched leaded-glass casement windows. One wall has built-ins and is an ideal reading nook. The spacious formal dining room has paneled wainscoting, arched casement windows, and a wood-burning fireplace with brick surround. An updated eat-in kitchen offers a Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, granite countertops and tile backsplash. Doors in the kitchen area lead to a covered patio and a butler's pantry includes wine cooler, dishwasher, undercounter refrigerator, and brass bar sink. A three-season sunroom with garden views completes the first floor. In the main suite, pretty windows offer bench seating with storage, walk-in dressing room, full bath with soaking tub, separate shower and two additional closets. Four additional bedrooms include two with fireplaces, one with enclosed sleeping porch, and one with vaulted ceiling and built-in trundle bed and storage. There are two additional full baths plus a second floor laundry room. The third floor is comprised of a spacious two-room suite with flex-space and full bath with a traditional clawfoot tub. The carriage house includes a two-car garage with guest apartment with full kitchen, living room, bedroom, full bath and washer/dryer. The rear yard includes an outdoor stone fireplace, perennial plantings, terraces for al fresco dining, estate fencing, and plenty of play space. "Tawno Ker" is ideal for those who want to live in the heart of the Main Line, with the quality and character that only a historical house featuring modern amenities and comforts can provide.
