Come see why PHILADELPHIA MAGAZINE recently chose to feaure this unique estate home! Located in prestigious Lower Gwynedd, this home also has a separate in-law-suite and gorgeous pool on the property. This stunning stone dutch colonial sits back from the road on 3.5 acres in Wissahickon School District and provides approximately 5,000 sq. ft. of living space, including the finished basement and in-law suite. This home has an entrance to dream about... Imagine the fun you'll have decorating the grand front porch and large stone columns for the holiday seasons! Upon entering the home you are greeted by gleaming wood parquet flooring, one of 4 fireplaces and an open layout great for entertaining. Character abounds everywhere you turn, through the window and floor moldings, to the grand stairways, and each intricate detail you will notice once inside. Enjoy a crackling fire while watching your favorite movie in the living room or while hosting intimate gatherings in the dining room. A large sunroom, kitchen with chef's oven, powder room, laundry area and mudroom complete the first floor. The second floor hosts 4 large bedrooms, one with a fireplace, and 2 fully renovated bathrooms. The third floor is reminiscent of your favorite bed and breakfast with a hallway gathering area, 3 additional bedrooms and a full bathroom with clawfoot tub, perfect for out of towns guests or an au-pair suite. Host large summer gatherings out back by the patio and expansive pool area with plenty of room to fit all of your guests! OR relax and enjoy your very own backyard retreat! Completely separate and private in-law-suite could also be used as a pool house or guest suite, has its own kitchen area, full bathroom and walk-in-closet. This home also comes with its own chicken cage, live chickens and an enormous 3 car garage with a second floor. Take a step back in time to when beauty, quality, and uniqueness mattered. Much of the restoration of this home has already been done with impeccable taste and period appropriate materials (all bathrooms, main bedroom, flooring, outdoor living space, pool, patio, in-law-suite, basement, etc.) This home has been well-loved and is now ready for its new owner!
