This property is 4 acres, 2 separately deeded lots. The home sits on 2.5 acres and the lot next to it is 1.5 acres. Drive down one of Bryn Mawr’s most desirable tree-lined streets and turn into the long driveway lined with lamp poles and specimen plantings. The stately stone manor home with white siding, black shutters and slate patios front and rear say you’ve arrived. This fully updated classic Pennsylvania farmhouse sits on two fenced-in parcels totaling more than 4 acres in the heart of the Main Line, in the coveted Radnor School District. This 6000 + Okie farmhouse, a Colonial Revival main home, was built in 1942 and redesigned for modern living in 2014 by architect Ann Ledger of Wayne. It (main house)features 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half baths on 2.5 levels, plus a finished lower-level bonus room and a 1-bedroom, 1 bath studio apartment/guest house above the detached garage. Inside you’re surrounded by rich architectural features from past and present—from arched doorways, Dutch doors with rustic wrought-iron hardware, beautiful hardwood floors and 3 fireplaces, to built-in lockers in the mudroom and bookshelves in both offices, marble bathrooms with seamless shower doors and walk-in closets everywhere. Throughout, generous windows offer great views of the property from every angle and fill the home with light. On the main level, the foyer opens to stairwells to the upper level and finished lower level and features a formal powder room. Both the living room and great room feature fireplaces. French doors in the living room open to a slate patio. The equally spacious great room has split doors to the back patio and the mudroom addition and opens to the kitchen and breakfast room as well. A family room provides additional informal gathering space and a 2nd stairwell to the upstairs hallway. Two offices—one off the kitchen and the other opening to the backyard—feature built-ins in beautiful shades. A butler’s pantry—fully equipped with a beverage refrigerator, dishwasher and icemaker—services both the dining room and the center-island kitchen—a chef’s delight with Thermador 6-burner stove with griddle and range hood Thermador double wall oven and warming drawer, a farmhouse sink and other high-end stainless steel appliances. Featuring white inset cabinets, a subway tile backsplash and white beadboard ceiling, this cheery space opens to a large breakfast room overlooking the patios and pool. There’s also a door to the driveway area for family members and “backdoor friends.” On the first upper level, the primary bedroom features a large covered balcony with a gorgeous view of the pool and backyard, as well as two walk-in closets with built-in storage and a luxurious private bath with radiant-heated tile floors, double sinks and high vaulted ceilings—part of the 2014 addition. Three large additional bedrooms with en suite baths were also part of the renovation, and a laundry room with built-in cabinets and countertops adds convenience. On the second upper level, a large room and full bath could be used as a playroom or additional bedroom. On the lower level, a finished bonus room with fireplace provides flexible space to suit your family’s style. The main-level mudroom has tile floors, an informal powder room and walk-in closet, along with built-in cubbies, and a bar with refrigerator to serve the pool area. Picture yourself sitting by the in-ground pool/spa listening to the soothing sound of the Kirk’s Run creek, which runs alongside the property. Off the pool area, a detached two-car garage includes a one-bedroom studio apartment with full bath and kitchenette for your guests’ convenience and your privacy. Gorgeous inside and out, this classic residence offers the best of town and country living just three miles from both the Villanova and Bryn Mawr train stations and within walking distance of the prestigious Agnes Irwin School.
