A Philadelphia Main Line Classic like this only comes along once in a generation. As you enter the circular drive, you'll be welcomed by the easy elegance and understated grace of this special property. Set on just over 2 acres, this is your own private oasis, nestled in the heart of the Main Line. Owned by one family for the last 24 years, this home has been meticulously maintained with a newer roof & major systems, including multi-zoned heating and cooling. A major addition in 2012 added a 3-car, attached oversized garage, with a large gym plus a nanny / in-law suite above. Family living spaces were also updated and expanded, including a convenient mudroom (with built-in storage lockers). An informal "friends and family" side-entry was added offering access to both the front and back yards, the kitchen, family room and informal living areas, as well as the mudroom, garage and Nanny/ In-Law/ Guest suite above. With a floor-plan that meets the needs of today's busy lifestyles, you'll also surprised to find not one - but two private home offices - both located on the second floor of the main house - (away from the noise of family activities). This gracious home effortlessly blends the best of the old and new. The generously proportioned living and dining rooms feature handsome millwork, arched entries, and recessed windows with deep sills. The wood-burning fireplace in the living room provides cozy warmth on winter evenings, while the inviting sunroom beyond offers views of the back yard, bringing beautiful natural light and wonderful open flow for entertaining. The butler's pantry features handsome built-in cabinetry with a wine fridge and pellet ice-maker. With plenty of living spaces to accommodate your needs now and in the future, this spacious home features six (6) bedrooms including a luxury primary suite with a large dressing room and spa-like bath; the In-Law/Nanny/Guest Suite (over the garage); and a 3rd floor bonus room (possible 7th bedroom). Serving these bedrooms, are 5 full baths (including 3 en-suite baths, and a private bath for the In-Law / Nanny Suite), plus a lower level full bath for pool access. All baths have been tastefully updated; several baths have radiant heat flooring. The farm-house style kitchen features a commercial grade range, full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator and separate full-size Sub-Zero freezer, a center island that comfortably seats six, warming drawer, coffee bar, and generous pantry storage. The adjacent breakfast room is open to the family room - the perfect place to put your feet up and relax with a fireplace, and two cozy reading nooks. The family room features a convenient "homework area" with built-in shelving, two desks and printer cabinet, as well as access to the stunning 3-season screened porch, overlooking the pool and yard. The addition above the garage features separately zoned HVAC and hot water. This space includes the Nanny/ Guest/ In-Law Suite (queen sized bedroom with full bath) and a kitchenette (with apartment size fridge/ freezer, sink and dishwasher). There is a large home Gym (TRX, yoga silks and weight equipment can be included), and a fun TV/ movie/ gaming loft. This amazing recreation space could also be purposed for a golf simulator or movie / screening room. The partially finished basement includes a casual recreation space (with plenty of storage closets for games and toys), a full bath with an oversized shower (great for pool access), and even stackable laundry (for pool towels). Taking advantage of the magnificent and private setting, outdoor living spaces include a beautiful screened porch (with un-interrupted view screens), elegant stone patios and terraces, a putting green, and a gorgeous heated pool with a seating area and a wisteria-covered pergola. Pre-Listing Home, Pool and Chimney Inspection Reports are available. Showings by appointment only.
