This impeccably maintained and renovated stone and stucco home boasts all the luxuries one seeks in modern homes married with the charm of a classic Main Line Colonial. The beautiful, secluded location in the heart of Bryn Mawr is incomparable, with the house perfectly positioned to take advantage of the picturesque views of Mill Creek which meanders through the expansive property. Sit on the lovely rear paver patio in summer & enjoy total tranquility, while the kiddos fish in the creek or play in the private backyard where wildlife abounds. A stone wall & privacy trees isolate you from Old Gulph Rd. The flagstone path that wraps around is great for walking, jogging & riding bikes or scooters. There's also a zip line which goes over the creek! Built in the 1960's, the house was gutted & renovated in 2005 with new electrical wiring, appliances & shingle roof. Care was also taken to waterproof with a French drain installed in the front yard, keeping the basement bone-dry. An elegant center hall foyer with coat closets & powder room whisks you into bright, airy living space enriched by random-width wood floors & decorative moldings. Through an opening at left is the living room with a fireplace flanked by built-ins offering scenic views & doors to the rear patio. To the right is a dining room w/a bay window & glass-paneled door to the kitchen for seamless entertaining. Most of your time will be spent in the kitchen/family room with mesmerizing views. The cook always feels part of the activity with the family room connected to the spacious kitchen appointed w/granite countertops, built-in appliances, a dining island & breakfast room for coffee. Double doors proceed to the mudroom entrance w/powder & laundry rooms + entry to the 2-car garage. A den/office w/a gas fireplace, bay window, surround-sound entertainment center & patio door is a comfortable place to unwind. The hardwood 2nd floor presents 3 bedrooms, a hall bath & divine master suite w/a balcony, huge fitted closet & gorgeous bath w/a sky-lit shower, soaking tub & double marble-top vanity. Closet ladders in BRs 2 & 3 ascend to the "secret" finished attic space, a great tent-shaped play place w/skylights! A finished 3rd flr BR suite w/a bath are B&B-like quarters facing the creek & grounds. The finished basement has generous rec & storage space. Two patios look down on Mill Creek & are ideal for large parties. Prime location next to Harriton Park; an easy walk to Bryn Mawr College & the train station
