Walkable to the historic village of Gladwyne yet presenting as if you are miles away from everything, find this handsome Modern Farm house on a truly secluded 1.45-acre park-like parcel. Built in 2005 with the architectural emphasis being as many windows as possible, this 5-bedroom, 4-full bath main home captures every bit of natural light and is further enhanced by views of a broad, flat lawn, irrigated gardens and the glimpse of the property’s 2-bedroom guest cottage/party barn.
A center foyer floor plan in the main house is enlivened by high ceilings and warm-toned hardwood floors though out the main level. The living room features a bespoke fireplace, and a large dining room with French door leads to a raised terrace that offers uninterrupted transitions from indoor to outdoor entertaining. An open kitchen and family room with custom shelving and wood burning fireplace are adjacent to a breakfast room overlooking an inviting covered terrace surrounded by gardens and ringed by evergreens for privacy. The master suite, found on this first level, offers a deluxe, resort quality bath, detailed in inviting neutrals with two spacious walk-in closets. Access to a private walled garden makes the suite a true retreat space.
Ascend to the second level from either the more formal front turned staircase or the rear stairs to find 4 bedrooms and a large office connected by a wide hall with high ceilings. Brightened by large windows, the fully finished lower level offers well designed space for recreation with television area, billiard and ping-pong space, temperature-controlled wine cellar, full bath and tremendous storage. A few steps from the main house is the most charming 2 bedroom guest cottage. A stone terrace surrounded by a hedge for privacy opens to a large party venue with vaulted ceiling adjacent full bath, kitchenette, laundry area and storage. The second level offers two bedrooms, a full bath with tub/shower, and a full kitchen. Wide planked floors add charm while a large painted brick fireplace brings warmth and focus to the Living Room wall.
Exceptional location, home, property and amenities. An engaging blend of charm and chic styling
