The grandeur of this house is rivaled only by the picturesque grounds surrounding this extraordinary stone and stucco Tudor which was built in 1920. Located just blocks from the Village of Swarthmore with its regional rail train station, library, shops & cafes makes this property a suburban oasis that is convenient yet private. Originally the home was built for the Curator of Paintings of the Philadelphia Museum of Art & the gracious entertaining spaces were once used for private art exhibits. The first floor offers a gracious Formal Room Living and spacious Dining Room, but also has an expansive Family Room with an impressive staircase & a wall of leaded glass windows which is perfect for more casual get togethers. There are French doors that open to both covered & uncovered stone Patios, overlooking an exquisite reflection pond, expanding your entertaining space to the beautiful outdoors. Also, on the first floor is a unique Flex Room featuring a large fireplace with a tiled hearth, wood stove insert & impressive copper hood. This room has a private entrance adding great potential for a home Office. There is also a bar area ideal for a "man-cave", the choice is yours! The updated Kitchen has a Jenn-Aire cooktop, along with a bright Breakfast Area & this area continues the charm of the rest of the home with deep window sills & custom mill work. The private quarters on the 2nd & 3rd floors of the house offer 6 Bedrooms with 4 Full Baths, and gorgeous tree top views from every window. Distinguishing features include 3 fireplaces, custom millwork, 9 foot ceilings, hardwood floors & an exceptional 1.31 acre property with specimen plantings, paver driveway & meandering walkways, 50' in-ground pool with pool house, and a charming garden shed with a cedar shake roof.
