This nearly 7,000 square foot home could easily be mistaken for a manor on the English Countryside. You can just imagine the little dirt road leading away to the forever fields of the vast and isolated land in England. But, instead you’ll find you’re just a short drive to downtown Philadelphia, a major metropolitan city with all the luxury and amenities a 21st century family needs.
“Offered for the 1st time in over 30 years,this superbly maintained English Country Manor represents the essence of Chestnut Hill, from its cut-stone construction to its setting on a terraced hillside bathed in sunlight & surrounded by fine gardens,” writes the listing agent.
As for what’s behind the enormous arched wooden door, its overall look is traditional with contemporary highlights. The floor plan is designed for entertaining with a large reception foyer flanked by a formal living & dining rooms. All retain their classic elegant features, including high ceilings, fireplaces, hardwood floors and many sets of French doors. A sunroom with fireplace and stone floor has French doors on 3 sides opening to a terrace.
Updated in the past five years, the kitchen is well outfitted with an island and opens to a family room area with two sets of French doors that lead to a patio overlooking the pool. Private quarters include a sun-filled main suite with a fireplace, a new bath and French doors to a Juliette balcony. The three guest bedrooms are en suite with fireplaces. A fifth bedroom accesses a hall bath. ]
There’s covered parking for seven…yes, seven… cars. A full basement and attic, and a two bedroom caretaker’s quarters complete this residence.
Nope, no milk farmer is living here, people. At least not any farmer I’ve ever known.
