This magnificent Main Line mansion is a modern Gothic Revival ideally located at the end of a private lane in Gladwyne, PA. Situated on 32 secluded acres of rolling hills, the property features an exquisite 12,000+ square-foot mansion boasting a classic stone exterior with limestone accents, a multicolored slate roof, and multiple terraces that offer sweeping views of the property's gardens and numerous ATV trails. Built in 2011, the estate blends the exterior of a classic Main Line mansion with a modern interior, complete with a generous suite of resort-like amenities. The current owners purchased the land in 2006 and spent 3 years custom building a magnificent mansion with architect Peter Zimmerman and Cherokee Construction. Only one family has lived in the home since its completion. The 12,704 square-foot mansion has 7 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms, 4 half bathrooms, an attached 4-car garage and an elevator that services each floor. A perimeter of mature flowering and evergreen trees ensures that the estate has total privacy. There is an additional detached 3-car garage with an apartment above that could be used for staff, guests, or extended family. Enjoy the tennis court or basketball hoops, fully-equipped with lights for night play, on the northeast corner of the property. The home's first floor features a gracious entrance foyer with a chandelier, detailed plaster work, inlaid stone floors, crown moulding, and arched doorways that continue throughout the house. Adjacent to the foyer is the Art Deco-inspired, wood-paneled office, and a generously-sized living room with access to a covered porch and patio-perfect for an intimate gathering or large party. Down the bright hallway lined with French doors is a dining room that can seat 10-12 guests comfortably. The informal, stepdown family room and dining room share an adjacent wet bar made of onyx and wood with tiered illumination. The eat-in kitchen, featuring top-of-the-line appliances, is finished with polished woodwork and large, stone countertops and has an extra large range and double oven. The second floor features an enormous master suite, which is comprised of a grand bedroom with fireplace, large his-and-her dressing rooms, separate sitting room, and a spacious master bath with standing shower and soaking tub. There are 6 additional bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms. There is an additional 'homework' room that could be used as another bedroom or office. The lower level includes many fabulous amenities, including large game room with wet bar, screening-quality theater with stadium seating, and a wine cellar with an adjacent wine tasting area.
