Description

Crafted of stucco over terra cotta block, this centennial English manor style home is nestled on a small rise on a most coveted private lane in North side Haverford. Architecturally balanced and light filled, this 6-7 bedroom, 4 full/3 half bath home has experienced recent tasteful renovations at the hands of the current owners. A handcrafted beveled glass front entry door opens to a small vestibule offering access to a formal powder room and closet. A second mullioned door leads to a truly magnificent... entrance parlor with oversized scenic Mercer tile wood burning fireplace. Hardwood floors, quarter sawn oak paneling and two sets of French doors open to the rear brick terrace and pool. This space not only creates a welcoming entry but also functions as an important axis point for connecting the formal to informal areas of the home. To the left of foyer descend elegant wide stairs to formal living room. A full wall of harlequin patterned lead glass windows bathe the room in natural light and offer views of the expansive front grounds. A floor to ceiling Moravian Tile Works fireplace is the focal point of the opposite wall. One of only few custom fireplaces surrounds designed specifically for the original resident and depicting scenes from Wagner~s Opera. The northern exposure of this grand space opens to a screen porch which exits to both the rear and front yards, providing views of the pool terrace and in ground fountain. To the right of foyer through a large cased opening is the formal dining room with gleaming hardwood floors, crown moldings, fireplace and handsome carved mantle. The dining room connects to the kitchen through both a service door as well as a rear passage offering maximum flexibility for formal entertaining or daily family life. Under the design talents of John Milner, the kitchen and adjoining family room and breakfast area create ideal informal gathering space. Chef~s quality appliances and generous storage and preparation spaces create a truly professional and functional kitchen. Steps from the kitchen, the family room with custom built book shelves enjoys wonderful flow between all of the core family spaces. A most charming back porch leads to the family entrance offering Dutch door entry to the bead board mudroom with outfitted storage. An in-formal powder room, large walk-in pantry, rear stairs and basement access complete this first level. Ascend the wide quarter sawn oak stairs with squared balusters and newel posts to the second floor landing. A deluxe master bedroom with masonry fireplace was renovated to include his and her walk-in closets and Master bath with soaking tub, his and hers sink vanities, and standing shower.Double doors open to a second floor family room with French doors to a charming balcony. This room offers intimate and meaningful relaxing or reading space in a second floor environment. Two bright and spacious bedrooms are joined by a renovated white tiled bath. A passage leads to two additional bedrooms, currently used as office space, and renovated hall bath. Both of these rooms enjoy a large, shared sitting room with two exposures of light overlooking the pool and gardens. A large second floor laundry provides generous storage, work and folding space. The third level of the home can be quite flexible in its layout, offering two additional bedrooms, one with ensuite bath, a hall half bath, a recreation/pool room, and floored storage space.
