Sweeping great lawns & an exterior styling as at ease in Haverford's Merion Golf Manor as it would be in the dunes of the Hamptons, find this exceptional 5 bedroom, 4 full & 2 half bath main clapboard constructed home with independent guest house positioned on two parcels totaling 2.71 acres. Celebrating a sense of both classic & cutting edge, the home abounds with custom features including handsome entry & staircase, herring bone floors, a living room detailed with quatrefoil plaster ceiling & wide, wood burning fireplace. With sets of French doors that open onto one of the homes verandas, this chic living room feels more welcoming than formal. A lively red lacquered library & adjacent felt green billiard's room provide up-beat end of day retreat & recreation, while the elegant dining room with 10 foot ceilings & adjacent tap/bar room stands ready to play host to grand or intimate events. The kitchen, breakfast & family room area was restyled & expanded in 2006. An impressive Le Cornu installation with multi-burner gas cook top & double ovens is surrounded by bespoke enameled cabinetry. An oversized center island with thick white Calcutta Gold marble top is as impressive as it is old world & functional. The addition spanning one whole side of the home chooses a neutral palette with influences of blues & greens seamlessly connecting the views of the pool and exquisite gardens to the interior. Ascend either the front or rear stair to an indulgent Master suite featuring his & her bath & separate dressing areas. The bedroom opens to deck through French doors to the left of the woodburning fireplace. 3 additional bedrooms, one with en suite bath, large crafts room or upstairs office, as well as laundry facility complete this floor. A third level offers sunlit play space and excellent storage. As in all the truly fine estates, the gardens are as important as the residence. Metal trains flowering wisteria vines to create living pergolas over large outdoor seating areas. A pool house with wood burning fireplace makes for a stunning yet inviting backdrop to the stone edged pool and year round focal point from the kitchen and family space. Ringed by mature cypress, the tennis court remains hidden from view while providing additional recreation space. Independent guest house provides the ideal space for family or long term guests, with spacious living area, kitchenette, bedroom and full bath. Timeless, tranquil, a right sized home that delivers grand living.
