This stately brick Colonial nestled on 1.7 acres of lush private parklike grounds offers a breathtaking hilltop setting & exquisite living quarters. The blissful environs graced by mature trees & beautiful landscaping are enhanced by charming pathways, stepping stones, gardens & an enchanting fountain that conjure a faraway world all your own. You'll love spending time in nature whether strolling the grounds, watching all play on the sprawling lawn, or entertaining on the fabulous rear patio. Designed by Philadelphia architect W R Morton Keast & built with top-quality construction, this grand home boasts elegant Federalist-period details reflected both inside & out, from the brickwork to the dentil molding & other classic elements. Airy 9' ceilings, random-width hardwood floors & generous sun-filled windows grace the main level, designed for seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining. French doors in the living room with a fireplace & the regal dining room with a wet bar open to the large slate patio where you can host special occasions or cocktail & dinner parties. Gracious living & traditional Colonial charm meld with modern upgrades such as a finely redone gourmet kitchen & updated bathrooms. The family will spend lots of time sitting around the big center island while mom whips up delicious meals. Granite countertops, abundant cabinetry, and Sub-Zero, Wolf & Miele appliances are special touches the cook will love. The tiled kitchen conveniently accesses the patio & rear stairs as well as the 2-car attached garage. This level also features a powder room & wood-paneled library with a fireplace & wall of built-ins for quiet evenings reading or watching TV. Ascend the graceful main staircase to the upper level that provides lovely full street views. The master suite has a walk-in closet & spa-like limestone tile bath with double sinks, honey tone onyx countertops, heated floors, a towel warming rack, air-jet tub, oversized steam shower & Toto washlet toilet.
