    Description

    Become the next custodians of a truly remarkable Main Line home+GGa c. 1790 farmhouse lovingly tended by owners who infused the house and grounds with their love of beauty. The interiors inspire lively conversation and deep meditation, and the setting is tranquil, with a sweeping lawn bordered by more than a hundred trees, and a private stream-fed pond for play and contemplation. This property is both a distinctive family compound and an inspiration for individual creativity. The discriminating buyer will appreciate the way this home combines the charm of an historic farmhouse with the airy appeal of modern design. Thanks to the skill of famed architect John Milner, the original farmhouse is augmented with a new wing that includes a dedicated meditation space and library/study; a hexagonal windowed dining and sunroom to overlook the stunning landscape; and luxurious additional bedrooms. Approached from the driveway, the property is eye-catching, with a stone exterior, an inset for wood storage, and a brick-red front door. The traditional entry foyer has a slate floor, a coat closet, and a powder room. On the first level of the adjacent newer wing, custom touches are immediately apparent within a one-of-a-kind playroom with hand-crafted, Shaker-style cabinetry, an inviting window seat, and several built-ins. These welcoming spaces invite games, reading, and leisure activities. The sunroom/family room has a separate TV area and many windows that overlook the private outdoor setting. Soaring glass windows and glass doors in the dining room lead to two terraces and a generous lawn. The sun-filled kitchen with Portuguese tile backsplash and gas range features wood floors, built-in shelving, and ample cabinetry. An extra-large mudroom/pantry is an extension of the kitchen, with additional cupboards, laundry, and plentiful storage options. Inspired design and loving attention to detail is evident throughout the addition, which has its own private entrance. A first-level primary bedroom/bathroom suite features an abundance of windows that overlook a Japanese garden and the lawn beyond, a walk-in closet with custom storage, and a private office nook. The blue-and-white main bathroom has a deep, jetted soaking tub and vanity sink. John Milners designs are beautifully executed in the other added first-floor spaces. A Japanese tea alcove seats five comfortably. The library/study, floored in antique wormy-chestnut wood, includes a nap area and meditation space with round windows, as well as a hall bath with stall shower. From the library, a graceful spiral staircase leads to the second level and two sun-drenched bedrooms. A large second-floor landing with skylight is ideal for reading and reflection. The farmhouse roots of this home are most evident in the living room, with its distinctive wood floors, graceful fireplace, and deep-silled windows. Chair rails, unusual storage spaces, and a hidden bar area add to the rooms appeal. A staircase leads to two large bedrooms, one of which has a fireplace and three more deep-silled windows. A door from the second bedroom leads to an outside deck that overlooks the property. The full bath on this level is tiled; the second floor could serve as an additional master suite. The third floor bedroom is pure potential, with attractive wide-planked floors, broad flanking windows, and eaves in the bedroom, and a large bathroom en suite. Outdoor spaces on this property are stunning. A rebuilt stone wall undergirds the back terrace, which is well designed to welcome guests. The lawn slopes to a private pond, with well-placed seating for tranquil evenings. The precise interiors and gorgeous landscape encourage quiet and contemplative living, yet this home also offers remarkably convenient access to Ithan Market, the Radnor Trail, Villanova University, Lancaster Avenue,
