Property Description

Impeccable, Main Line home with a show-stopping list of upgrades. Modern style meets timeless elegance in this luxurious & private, post-modern French Colonial residence perfectly positioned within easy reach of Philadelphia City Center. Every inch of this remarkable home has been expertly remodeled with no detail overlooked or expense spared to ensure a truly breathtaking abode that promises a life of absolute leisure. The Philadelphia Inquirer featured this amazing home in 2015 & it was the hit of the Ardmore Kitchen Tour. From the moment you step through the double-door entry, you will be in awe of the soaring 18-foot ceilings & the porcelain tile flooring throughout the light-filled entry. The open-concept 2,678 sq ft layout invites you to stretch out & relax with a comfortable living space to suit any mood or occasion. A statement chandelier & new hardwood flooring exude a sense of opulence in the sunken living & dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows & a dramatic, wood-burning fireplace with marble surround & mantle. Next, a gourmet kitchen which any passionate cook will be sure to love. This 300 sq ft chef haven showcases every upgrade imaginable from the granite island, with seating for six people, to the suite of high-end appliances including a professional gas six-burner stove & stainless-steel hood. Every cabinet & drawer opens onto something unique, including a cleverly-disguised desk area on one wall! Do not miss the entertainment wall of cabinets with instant hot water, a beverage refrigerator, a wine cooler & an ice maker for hosting guests in style. Guests can gather in the comfortable Family Room with atrium door that opens onto steps leading down to a free-standing deck that stretches across the back of this home. A totally new powder room is conveniently located in the entrance area along with a custom-designed closet. A deep closet outside the master bedroom can potentially be converted into a laundry room, putting everything you need on one level. Your sumptuous first-floor master suite awaits! Plush carpeting. Bladeless ceiling fan. Walk-in closet with built-ins. Luxury & comfort combine to make the totally redesigned main bathroom into a SPA-like experience with floating, twin vanities, an oversized soaking tub, shutters & a dramatic, glass-doored shower. A turned staircase with decorative wrought-iron spindles leads up to the second floor. Check out your very own balcony overlooking the living area below. A Murphy Bed in one bedroom gives this room multi-functional possibilities: an office, a sitting room, a nursery, your choice. The third bedroom makes a perfect Guest Room with the dream hall bathroom right outside your door, giving you yet another SPA-like experience. Tucked away in the hallway is another walk-in closet with more storage. Wait! Adding to the living space available is the 1000 sq ft basement multi-purpose room which would make an ideal in-home studio for a yoga business or gym.
