This truly classic Walter Durham Main Line colonial set upon 3.46 lush acres of privacy yet minutes to the Village of Gladwyne and downtown Ardmore exudes the classic Main Line lifestyle. As you walk up the stone path and enter the front door you immediately see the views of the rear grounds with a beautiful pool and spa overlooking lush trees and personally designed English gardens. The formal living room with an abundance of built-in cabinetry and original moldings makes a wonderful room to entertain with its built-in bar discreetly tucked behind cabinetry and its classic stone fireplace. The spacious dining room is conveniently located off the kitchen through an arched doorway and features a grand fireplace surrounded by original built-ins and has a Dutch door leading out to the rear flagstone patio. A cozy family room provides a wonderful place to spend time with family or can be used as a separate playroom. The bright eat-in kitchen boasts Rutt cabinetry with granite counters, farmhouse sink, a new Bosch dishwasher, new Subzero refrigerator, and new wine cooler, double ovens, and gas cooktop plus back staircase. The sliding door provides a plethora of light and makes access to the rear patio and pool convenient for grilling and outdoor entertaining. Tucked just off the mudroom in its own space, is the 4th bedroom and full bath perfect for guests plus a separate office/bonus space. On the second level find the gracious primary suite surrounded by windows on three walls with a fireplace and offers views overlooking the rear grounds. The adjacent primary bath has a walk-in shower and concrete counters evoking a warm rustic farmhouse feel. Off the primary bath is a room currently being used as a closet surrounded by custom enclosed cabinets but could also be used as a 5th bedroom/office/bonus space. The second floor also houses Bedrooms 2 & 3 which are also bright and spacious and offer adequate closet space and their own baths. A walk-up third floor is unfinished but could easily be finished if additional living space was desired. Complete with a two-car garage providing inside access and a long driveway with lots of parking space. Outside is truly an oasis-you will never want to leave with the heated pool and spa, flagstone patio with awning for dining al fresco, quaint storage shed, garden pathways, and gates punctuated with perennial gardens and an array of blooming trees and extensive landscape lighting. Wired for sound in the primary bedroom, dining room and family room. Built in a bygone era where craftsmanship and longevity were the goals this is a truly special estate in a magnificent Lower Merion location.
